FBI Director Refuses Comment On Debunked Biden Laptop Theory

On Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray declined to confirm whether the disclosure of information from Hunter Biden’s laptop was part of a Russian “disinformation” effort to smear President Biden.

Despite no evidence supporting the claim, FBI Director Christopher Wray refused to address the issue when questioned during a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Thursday. Wray cited an ongoing Justice Department investigation as the reason for his reluctance to comment.

When asked about the Russian disinformation theory, Wray said, “I want to be careful about that. There is an ongoing investigation that is relevant to that, so I have to be careful of what I can share on that here.”

The issue of whether the release of documents found on Hunter Biden’s laptop was part of a Russian disinformation campaign has become a contentious topic among political parties, with Democrats and former intelligence officials pushing hard to spread the theory.

The contents of the laptop, which include emails detailing Hunter Biden’s work in foreign countries such as Ukraine and China, contradict President Joe Biden’s previous claims that he was unaware of his son’s business affairs.

Among the documents found on the laptop was an email from one of Hunter’s business partners in May 2017 outlining the proposed equity percentages for a venture with a Chinese energy company. The email included a line asking if “10 held by H for the big guy?”

Former business partner Tony Bobulinski, who attended a presidential debate as a guest of Donald Trump, claimed in an interview with Fox News that “H” referred to Hunter and “the big guy” was Joe Biden. However, Fox News also noted that there was no evidence found yet to suggest that Joe Biden received any part of the business deals with the Chinese entities.

John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of a computer repair shop in Delaware, claims that in April 2019, Biden left his laptop for repairs but never returned to pick it up. Isaac said he provided a copy of the hard drive to the FBI and later to journalists.

Hunter Biden announced in December 2020 that he was being investigated by the Justice Department for potential tax violations. Reports later revealed that the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware had opened an investigation into Biden’s foreign business dealings in 2018.
