Biden's DOJ finally confirms Hunter Biden's laptop is authentic

"A search warrant was also obtained for his laptop and the results of the search were largely duplicative of information investigators had already obtained from Apple."

In a Tuesday court filing, special counsel David Weiss confirmed that Hunter Biden’s laptop, that was abandoned at a Delaware repair shop, is in fact real, and the information discovered on it matched already obtained information from the Biden son’s Apple iCloud account. Joe Biden had said on the debate stage in 2020 that the laptop was "Russian disinfo." This was echoed by his staff.

"In August 2019, IRS and FBI investigators obtained a search warrant for tax violations for the defendant’s Apple iCloud account. In response to that warrant, in September 2019, Apple produced backups of data from various of the defendant’s electronic devices that he had backed up to his iCloud account," Weiss wrote.

"Investigators also later came into possession of the defendant’s Apple MacBook Pro, which he had left at a computer store. A search warrant was also obtained for his laptop and the results of the search were largely duplicative of information investigators had already obtained from Apple."

The search warrant was issued in relation to an investigation on tax charges, which also revealed gun possession violations.

The same court filing revealed that FBI investigators in 2023 had discovered a "white powdery substance" on Hunter Biden’s brown leather pouch that had held his firearm in October 2018.

Prosecutors asked a judge on Tuesday to reject the first son’s attempts to have the gun charges dismissed after investigators found the cocaine residue on the pouch used to hold his gun.

Prosecutors stated that "the strength of the evidence against him is overwhelming," and rejected Biden’s claims that he was being targeted for political reasons.

Hunter Biden has pleaded not guilty to charges of lying on a firearm purchase form about his drug use. The president’s son also has three felony and six misdemeanor counts pending against him for allegedly evading $1.4 million in taxes.

In testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee in November of 2022, IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley Jr revealed that "in October 2019, the FBI became aware that a repair shop had a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden and that laptop might contain evidence of a crime."

This was a full year before the existence of the laptop was made public by the New York Post's Emma Jo Morris. Stories on the subject were censored and suppressed on social media, and the Biden campaign had solicited a supportive intelligence official to express that the laptop had all the earmarks of "Russian disinformation," leading to the letter that 51 former intelligence officials signed onto.

It wasn’t until 2022 that outlets that had discredited the laptop’s existence, including CBS, the Washington Post, and the New York Times, would admit that it was real.
