Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee, asked FBI Director Christopher Wray if he had investigated the contents of the laptop, which appears to have been left at a workshop in Delaware by Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
From this device the New York Post extracted and published information that implicates the Bidens in a host of activities, which if true would make them guilty of extreme corruption.
The owner of the shop, John Paul Mac Isaac, said Hunter Biden left the computer in his shop in April for repairs, but did not return, according to the Daily Caller.
After observing the contents and calculating the severity of the damage, he turned it in to the FBI in December, after making a copy because he feared for his life, and turned it in to the lawyer of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who in turn took it to the New York Post.
Johnson wrote to Wray on Oct. 17, saying that several days after his request, the FBI had not provided any information on the subject.
“The FBI responded that it would neither confirm nor deny any information identified by the committee, although several of our questions were not related to the possible existence of an ongoing grand jury investigation,” Johnson wrote.
As he said in his letter to Wray, Johnson said that Mac Isaac had informed his committee members of the existence of the laptop on Sept. 24 and that he had turned it over to the FBI on Dec. 9, 2019.
Johnson also asked several specific questions seeking details of the case, but had not received any answers.
“If any information offered to the committee was related to an attempt by a foreign opponent to interfere with the election, I would expect the FBI to ensure that the committee is protected and receive a defensive report,” Johnson said to Wray.
The New York Post’s publications, which continue unabated, are taken from the 40,000 emails and other content, including photos and videos of Hunter using addictive drugs and having an intimate relationship with a woman.
The impact caused has been shocking, to the extent that Twitter and Facebook censored the redistribution of information through their networks, in addition to closing accounts as important as that of the campaign of President Donald Trump.
After Joe Biden led people to believe that it was a smear campaign, it became known that one of Hunter’s lawyers contacted Mac Isaac to try to recover the laptop’s content.
Later, both Fox News and The Washington Free Beacon quoted two different sources that seem to confirm the contents obtained by the New York Times.
