Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) submitted the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop hard drive and the receipt from the computer repair shop where it was dropped off into the congressional record.
During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, the conservative firebrand cross examined FBI’s Cyber Division Assistant Director Bryan Vorndran. The FBI seized the laptop in December of 2019, however, Vorndran claimed he didn’t know where the laptop currently is. Gaetz pressed the issue and demanded answers.
“How are Americans suppose to trust that you can protect us from the next Colonial Pipeline if it seems that you can’t locate a laptop that was given to you three years ago?” asked the Florida lawmaker. “So where is it, the laptop?”
Further into the hearing, the Republican slammed the assistant director over how little he knew about how compromised the Biden family could potentially be. Vorndran said he was only there to answer questions about the bureau’s cyber program.
“I would think that the President’s son who does international business referencing the now-President with the Chinese, with Ukrainians…I mean have you assessed whether or not the Hunter Biden laptop gives Russia the ability to harm our country?” Gaetz asked.
The assistant director didn’t share who the committee could question about the laptops location or its content on Biden’s international business dealings. Although there was some resistance from Democrats on the committee, Gaetz was able to go on record with the evidence.
“After consultation with majority staff, I seek unanimous consent to enter into the record of this committee content from files from and copies from the Hunter Biden laptop,” he stated.
On top of this, congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) told One America News that he’s laying the groundwork for a probe into the media’s efforts to suppress the laptop story. If the GOP succeeds in taking control of the lower chamber after the midterms, the door to potentially subpoena Hunter Biden could open.
