“Nineteen House lawmakers sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray this week demanding answers about a laptop allegedly belonging to Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, following explosive reports that were published in the New York Post.
“Yesterday, the New York Post published an article entitled, ‘Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad,’” the letter, dated Thursday, stated. “The article documents how a recently uncovered laptop and hard drive allegedly revealed e-mails to and from Hunter Biden that strongly indicated that former Vice President Joe Biden was, in fact, aware of his son’s overseas dealings.”
CBS News investigative reporter Catherine Herridge obtained the letter and posted it to her Twitter account late on Friday evening.

“Most concerning in the article was the allegation that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was in possession of this computer and hard drive back in December 2019,” the letter continued. “This action took place right at the end of the U.S. House of Representative’s impeachment sham against President Donald J. Trump, and right before the U.S. Senate tried the case. A large portion of the President’s legal defense case revolved around strong evidence that former Vice President Biden’s son, Hunter, was peddling his influence to this father to land lucrative jobs overseas that he might not have otherwise been qualified for.”
“If the FBI was, in fact, in possession of this evidence and failed to alert the White House to its existence that would have given more weight to the President’s legal defense, this was a gross error in judgement and a severe violation of trust,” the letter continued.” (Read more: The Daily Wire, 10/16/2020) (Archive)
On October 18, 2020, The Gateway Pundit reports:
“On Sunday morning Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures.
During their discussion Maria Bartiromo asked Senator Johnson about the FBI agent who focuses on child pornography issues.
Senator Johnson’s answer should raise some eyebrows!
Maria Bartiromo: Connect the dots, if an FBI agent is working on child pornography issues for five years why is he subpoenaing the laptop of Hunter Biden? Is there a connection here? Should this suggest that there is a child pornography issue here on that laptop?
Senator Ron Johnson: Well, I think you just made a connection. This is what the FBI has to come clean about. This isn’t a standard investigation where the FBI doesn’t indict somebody and everything remains confidential. This is something that we were talking about that relates to national security. If there is criminal activity involved that is tied to Hunter Biden or his business associates or even possible ties to other members of the Biden family that some of these emails indicate that Joe Biden is fully aware of this, that he was taking his 10% cut or requiring 50% from his family members’ salaries, this needs to be known before Americans go to the polls.
Maria Bartiromo: So was the FBI agent serving the subpoena investigating child pornography, senator?
Senator Ron Johnson: Well, you just read the news report. I can’t comment any further. I don’t want to speculate other than to say that what I said publicly before. Our report uncovered several troubling connections, so many things that need to be investigated that I really think we’re just scratching the surface. Yes, I’ve heard all kinds of things that I think will probably be revealed over the next few days. There’s a treasure trove of emails and video and pictures. Not only in the purported computer of Hunter Biden but now we got the co-conspirator Kevin Cooney that’s also starting to reveal information. I guess we’ll find new information over the next couple of weeks.
