“House Republicans ask FBI if it had Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop during Trump’s impeachment
It comes after the New York Post story was published on Wednesday.
EXCLUSIVE: House Republicans are calling on the FBI to reveal whether it was in possession of a laptop that reportedly contained emails by Hunter Biden during the impeachment of President Trump — and claiming the agency committed a “gross error in judgement” if it did not inform the White House.
“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 letter was signed by 19 House Republicans, including Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.; Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz.; and Jody Hice, R-Ga.”
“The Post reported that the FBI was in possession of the laptop on which the emails were found in December 2019 — right in the middle of the impeachment of President Trump over remarks he made to the Ukrainian president about Biden’s conduct in the country.”
““Why did the New York Post have the information about this laptop and hard drive before the American people?” it asks.”
From Delaware Online October 15, 2020.
“A Wilmington computer repairman who reportedly gave a copy of Hunter Biden’s laptop hard drive to Rudy Giuliani’s attorney, Brian Costello, spoke cryptically Wednesday about his arrangement last month with the Republican operative.
In a winding interview with the media, John Paul Mac Isaac, owner of The Mac Shop in Wilmington, recalled how in April 2019 a man who identified himself as Hunter Biden brought three liquid-damaged laptops to his small repair shop in the Trolley Square shopping center.
Only one was left for repair, he said. No one returned to retrieve it, he said.”
“Mac Isaac repeatedly claimed he had shared the device with Costello because he was fearful for his safety. He did not explain how a move that would result in publicity would improve his security.
Mac Isaac also declined to state whether he approached Costello first with the hard drive or whether Giuliani’s team came to him.”
“During the subsequent summer and fall, Mac Isaac said he became alarmed after browsing through the computer’s files. He claims he then spoke with an associate more versed than him in the law and in current events.
That unnamed person then contacted the FBI, Mac Isaac said.
Federal investigators from Wilmington and Baltimore then subpoenaed the laptop in December, Mac Isaac said.”
