A new whistleblower has come forward to Senator Ron Johnson explaining how the FBI forbade agents from investigating Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 election.
The argument was made by officials that the FBI didn’t want to interfere in another election after Hillary lost in 2016, which the left blamed them for after Comey let her off the hook.
Here’s more via National Review:
A whistleblower claims FBI officials instructed agents not to investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop ahead of the 2020 presidential election, saying the bureau was “not going to change the outcome of the election again,” according to Senator Ron Johnson (R., Wis.)
Johnson included the whistleblower claims in a letter to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Tuesday.
“These new allegations provide even more evidence of FBI corruption and renew calls for you to take immediate steps to investigate the FBI’s actions regarding the laptop,” the senator wrote.
Johnson writes that “individuals with knowledge of the FBI’s apparent corruption” told his office that FBI officials intentionally undermined efforts to investigate President Biden’s son.
“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,’” he wrote.
What hubris it is that the FBI official thinks they ‘changed’ the outcome of the 2016 election with Comey’s announcement about Hillary’s misdeeds. That’s ridiculous and only the left would think that.
Hillary lost because she was a terrible candidate and Trump was seen as the candidate of hope.
But what that admission tells us is that this official didn’t want to hurt Joe Biden as he thought they hurt Hillary. I’m sure if the laptop had come from a son of Trump, they’d have been all over it.
Johnson calls on the IG to investigate the FBI’s response:
Johnson concludes his letter by calling on Horowitz to investigate the FBI’s response.
“While I understand your hesitation to investigate a matter that may be related to an ongoing investigation, it is clear to me based on numerous credible whistleblower disclosures that the FBI cannot be trusted with the handling of Hunter Biden’s laptop,” Johnson wrote.
He suggested the IG should begin “by obtaining the history of the investigative actions taken by the FBI on Hunter Biden’s laptop which should be available on the FBI’s case management system, Sentinel.”
I hope Horowtiz takes Johnson up on this because I want to know when the FBI made the decision not to allow an investigation into Hunter’s laptop and, more specifically, why.
