GOP Senator Ron Johnson Asks DOJ IG Horowitz to Open Investigation Into FBI’s Handling of Hunter Biden’s Laptop

Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Ron Johnson (R-WI) asked DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Wednesday to open an investigation into the FBI’s handling of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

The New York Post last week dropped an October surprise on Biden when they released emails between Hunter Biden and various foreign actors offering him money to have access to his VP daddy Joe.

Hunter abandoned his MacBook Pro at a repair shop and the shop owner, John Paul Mac Isaac, contacted the FBI and gave them Hunter Biden’s laptop in December of 2019.

Things took a dark turn this week when Rudy Giuliani announced he turned over the hard drive to the Delaware State Police when he discovered pictures of underage girls and inappropriate text messages.

According to a source who spoke to The Gateway Pundit, approximately one third of the explicit photos of minors in Hunter Biden’s laptop were of the same 14-year-old girl — who is one of his relatives.

Not only were there inappropriate photos of the child on her own, but Hunter Biden was in some of them with her.

Meanwhile, the FBI is not cooperating with Senator Ron Johnson and Hunter Biden still has not been taken into custody.

“On September 24, 2020, the day after Chairman Grassley and I released our report titled, “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns,” a whistleblower contacted my committee and informed my staff that he had possession of a laptop left in his business by Hunter Biden. He also informed us that he provided its contents to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in response to a December 9, 2019 grand jury subpoena,” Johnson wrote.

“As the first step in our due diligence, committee staff contacted FBI officials and asked for confirmation of certain facts in an attempt to validate the whistleblower’s claims and assertions. Unfortunately several days later, the FBI responded that it would not confirm or deny any information identified by committee staff even though several of the questions were not related to the possible existence of an ongoing grand jury investigation.”

“I respectfully request that your office open an investigation into the FBI’s handling of the laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden,” Johnson wrote.

Recall, Senator Johnson sent FBI Director Chris Wray a letter this week demanding answers on Hunter Biden’s laptop by October 22.

Separately, House Republicans last Thursday sent a letter to Director Chris Wray asking if the FBI was in possession of Hunter Biden’s laptop during the impeachment coup of President Trump.

“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 even more weight to the president’s legal defense, this was a gross error in judgement and a severe violation of trust,” the letter says.

The House Democrats launched an impeachment coup against President Trump in December over a phone call he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky where he discussed Biden’s corruption.

It appears the FBI was in possession of Hunter Biden’s laptop and failed to alert the Trump Administration to its existence.

Fox News reported Wednesday evening that Hunter Biden’s laptop is linked to a FBI money laundering probe.

The FBI’s subpoena of a laptop and hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden came in connection with a money laundering investigation in late 2019, according to documents obtained by Fox News and verified by multiple federal law enforcement officials who reviewed them.

It is unclear, at this point, whether the investigation is ongoing or if it was directly related to Hunter Biden.
