Many people wondered aloud why the FBI waited until nearly two years after the Hunter Biden laptop scandal broke to start seriously investigating it.
During the 2020 Presidential election, the FBI and many senior intelligence officials claimed that the contents on Hunter Biden’s laptop were ‘Russian disinformation’.
The media followed along, refusing to cover the story, while social media giants censored people who attempted to discuss it.
Now, a whistleblower within the FBI has revealed that their decision to not investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop was blatantly partisan.
They did not want to harm Joe Biden’s chances in the 2020 Presidential election.
The FBI had no problem investigating Trump during the 2016 election for bogus Russia ties.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wi.) announced the whistleblower’s claims, saying that the FBI ‘cannot be trusted’ to investigate the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The leadership of the FBI forbade agents from investigating Hunter Biden’s laptop until after the 2020 election was decided, according to whistleblowers that came forward to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).
The FBI postponed investigating Hunter’s laptop because the agency was “not going to change the outcome of the election again,” the senator revealed whistleblowers’ statement on Wednesday in a letter written to Justice Department (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
According to the letter, the whistleblowers said the FBI did not want to investigate the laptop because it was afraid public disclosure would alter the outcome of the 2020 election:
After the FBI obtained the Hunter Biden laptop from the Wilmington, DE computer shop, these whistleblowers stated that local FBI leadership told employees, “you will not look at that Hunter Biden laptop” and that the FBI is “not going to change the outcome of the election again.” Further, these whistleblowers allege that the FBI did not begin to examine the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop until after the 2020 presidential election—potentially a year after the FBI obtained the laptop in December 2019.
