The FBI knew the laptop Hunter Biden abandoned at a Delaware repair shop was authentic back in 2019.
IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley Jr revealed in testimony to the House Ways and Means Committee 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 laptop came to light via the New York Post's Emma Jo Morris, who broke the story. The stories were censored and suppressed on social media, and the Biden campaign solicited a supportive intelligence official to express that the laptop had all the earmarks of "Russian disinformation."
That sympathetic agent then contacted intelligence officials and drafted a letter they all signed claiming it looked like Russian disinformation. Biden campaign official Jen Psaki, later the White House press secretary, went on record saying the laptop was Russian "disinfo."
The Twitter Files, investigated by Michael Schellenberger, Matt Taibbi and others, showed that the FBI, knowing the veracity of the laptop, encouraged social media companies to believe that it was Russian disinformation. The laptop contains vast evidence of influence peddling by Hunter Biden on the family name as well as information about complicated, shady, foreign business dealings that lined the Biden family's pockets.
Before the laptop came to light in October of 2020, Yoel Roth, former Twitter head of trust and safety, took part in a "tabletop exercise" at the Aspen Institute in September of 2020 on a potential "hack and dump" operation regarding the laptop.
Fox and Friends discussed the matter on Friday after Thursday’s drop of new IRS whistleblower documents.
"The FBI knew the whole time," said host Brian Kilmeade. "You didn’t need 51 intel experts saying it was Russian disinformation. That stuff was real, including certain text messages that make Hunter and the family look terrible."
"The FBI verified its authenticity in November of 2019 by matching the device number against Hunter Biden’s Apple iCloud ID," Shapley testified.
Shapley said: "If search warrants or witness interviews or document requests that include the actual subjects’ names are not allowed, for example, that is simply a deviation from the normal process that provided preferential treatment, in this case to Hunter Biden. The case agent on this case was one of the best agents in the entire agency.
"Without his knowledge and persistence, the DOJ would have prevented the investigative team from collecting enough evidence to make an informed assessment, which ultimately included even DOJ agreeing on the recommended criminal charges. I am alleging, with evidence, that DOJ provided preferential treatment, slow-walked the investigation, did nothing to avoid obvious conflicts of interest in this investigation."
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
