Hunter Biden Admits That Controversial Laptop Might Be His, Blames Russia
Hunter Biden admitted during a CBS interview that the laptop at the center of an ongoing scandal could be his. He then claimed that Russian intelligence could be behind it.
Here’s what Hunter told CBS:
CBS NEWS: Was that your laptop?
HUNTER BIDEN: For real, I don’t know.
CBS NEWS: I know. But you know that’s-
HUNTER BIDEN: I really don’t know.
CBS NEWS: Okay, you don’t know, yes or now, if the laptop was yours.
HUNTER BIDEN: I don’t have any idea. I have no idea whether–
CBS NEWS: So, could have been yours?
HUNTER BIDEN: Of course, certainly. There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that was the– that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me.
Trump’s Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe previously revealed the laptop was indeed Hunter Biden’s. “Hunter Biden’s laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign and I think it’s clear the American people know that.”
During the 2020 election, the New York Post broke the Hunter Biden laptop scandal and revealed Biden’s connection to Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company linked to corruption.
The Post wrote:
The emails revealed that the younger Biden introduced a top Burisma executive to his father, then vice president, less than a year before the elder Biden admittedly pressured Ukrainian officials into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company. The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, a Burisma board adviser, sent Hunter on April 17, 2015.
The water-damaged MacBook Pro — which bore a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation — was dropped off for repair at a Delaware computer shop in April 2019, but the individual who dropped it off never returned to pick it up. It was seized by the FBI in December of that year.
In addition to his Ukrainian connections, other emails on the computer showed Hunter discussing potential business deals with China’s largest private energy company. One deal seemed to spark considerable interest with the younger Biden, who called it “interesting for me and my family.”
The laptop also contained highly personal photos and recordings, including an explicit, 12-minute video that appears to show the first son — who’s struggled with addiction in the past — smoking crack and engaged in sex acts with an unidentified woman.
It is unknown what Joe Biden’s response to the scandals will be.
