After waiting for five years to see what was going to happen in the investigation into Hunter Biden and the Biden family influence-peddling allegations, the Department of Justice finally decided to enter into a plea agreement on counts only concerning individual counts about Hunter — two about his taxes and one gun charge.
The interviewer asked, “The prosecutors are not asking for jail time. Are you concerned that the judge here might freelance?”
Seriously? So if that’s true — and that’s a big if — what does that indicate? Did the FBI ever even look into the laptop at all? Some of the info on the laptop pertained to the charges, for example, the gun count. But it’s hard to believe they never asked him, and if they didn’t, Congress should be demanding to know what was going on here in terms of the laptop and whether the things on it were ever pursued.
The interviewer asks if he has seen any proof of the influence peddling that Republicans say is on the laptop. The lawyer first says he hasn’t seen any such proof. He says he’s seen people wave “various random emails around.”
He reiterates the claim that the laptop info was “stolen” without presenting any evidence of that, despite what computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac has said to the contrary. He claims there was no “proof” of any violation, yet he seems to also be saying he hasn’t seen the laptop. He gets no pushback from the MSNBC interviewer, of course. Not only doesn’t she push back on his claim about the laptop info being “stolen,” she suggests, “I might sue” if she were in that situation. Unbelievable. Journalism is truly dead.
So Comer and the Republicans need to go to town on the FBI and ask what happened to the laptop here, and is anyone in the FBI even looking into it at all?
