A laptop from a computer repair store found in 2019 became a focal point during the presidential election because the salacious filled device was believed to be Hunter Biden’s. Emails from the laptop were published by the New York Post which implicated Hunter Biden made an introduction between his then-vice president father Joe Biden, and a Ukrainian adviser to Burisma Holdings in 2015.
Now, son Hunter Biden admits that laptop “absolutely” could be his. In an interview with CBS’s “Sunday Morning” Hunter was confronted with the issue and asked if the laptop belonged to him, “yes or no?” Hunter responded, “I really don’t know what the answer is, that’s the truthful answer,” he said. “Certainly, there could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked, it could be that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me.”
The laptop was allegedly dropped off at a repair shop in Delaware in April of 2019 but was never picked up. President Trump’s legal team member Rudy Giuliani acquired the laptop and gave the documents to the New York Post. The Post published the trove of emails in the final months of the 2020 presidential race.
The emails raised questions about Biden’s involvement with Hunter and Burisma holdings, which Joe Biden has vehemently denied having ties to. “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” reports the Post.
Democrats questioned the authenticity of the “water-damaged MacBook Pro – which bore a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation” which “was seized by the FBI in December of that year.” A senior federal law enforcement official told Fox News in October, just before the November election, that the emails were “authentic.” FBI and Justice Department officials agreed with then-Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe that the laptop was “not part of a Russian disinformation campaign.”
The Post reported on the laptop’s additional contents which “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.”
