FBI Director Dodges When Asked if Hunter Biden Laptop Story Is Disinformation.

National Review

FBI director Chris Wray dodged a question about whether the Hunter Biden laptop story is “disinformation” during a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Thursday.

“There is an ongoing investigation that is relevant to that. So I have to be careful of what I can share on that here,” Wray said when asked whether the laptop story was disinformation by Representative Elise Stefanik (R., N.Y.)

Stefanik pressed again, and Wray replied: “I don’t think there’s anything I can share on that in open setting.”

While much of the mainstream media and a group of more than 50 former senior intelligence officials dismissed the laptop story as Russian disinformation when it first emerged in October 2020, the validity of the laptop has now been confirmed by several news outlets, including the New York Times and the Washington Post. CBS News reported in November 2022 that it had conducted an independent review of Biden’s laptop that showed “no evidence” that the laptop hard drive “was faked or tampered with.”

After analyzing the hard drive, digital forensic investigator Mark Lanterman told CBS News that a voicemail from President Biden in which he tells Hunter he has to “get some help” with his drug problem helps confirm its authenticity. Other recovered images of credit cards, a driver’s license, and a Social Security number offered further proof for the review.

“Just the sheer volume of what we’re dealing with, it would be difficult if not impossible to fabricate,” another analyst told CBS News.

@ElwoodBlues talking about the fbi director
@MarineBob I thought law enforcement wasn't supposed to talk about ongoing investigations.
‘Ongoing investigation’ should be no excuse to why you can’t answer when being Q’d by a congressional oversite..
How about throwing his smug ass in jail for contempt until he plays ball?
@graphite trump walked into DC and was handed a big bucket of slimy turds.
And they said here Don.. reach in there and appoint yourself a cabinet and appoint a few directors… 😏

@TheOneyouwerewarnedabout As an outsider, he didn't have inside knowledge of what some of these people were really about. Wray - awful appointment; Sessions - even worse; Barr - another failure. Sessions hid under his desk and let Trump swing in the wind while the DoJ/FBI perpetrated the Russia Hoax.

FBI: needs to be eliminated. It's nothing more than a goon squad for the Democrat Party now and there is no Constitutional requirement for its existence. Actively trying to get Democrats elected? FBI should be disbanded.
@graphite I hear what you’re saying, but you’re painting with a broad brush. There are those FBI personnel who are/ were involved in the incidents you cite.
They were not the ones who decided to engage in these activities. They as agents were in the chain of command and did what they were ordered to do.
The Higher ups/ bureaucratic membership was appointed, not elected. They comply with their masters and as they say, “ shit rolls down hill”.
There are FBI personnel/ agents doing great work, much of what we don’t hear of.
What you’re seeing, IMO is a concerted effort to go after Trump and those associated with him by a corrupt president in the White House and a puppet head of the DOJ. They are scared and terrified Trump will be re-elected and know their stuff might well be weak if he gets back in.

@soar2newhighs And that from someone who constantly uses a broad brush to paint everyone on the right as white supremists. Amusing
@sunsporter1649 If you’re referring to Biden, I agree. And his bureaucrats( head of agencies) follow in that mentality. You don’t, you might be shown the door, no “ farewell tea”
If there is a national “ dance” contest , many a bureaucrat and politician would be competing for the “ dance around” trophy!
