FBI Knew Hunter Biden Laptop Was Real Before NYP Story

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) knew the Hunter Biden Laptop was authentic even before the New York Post broke the story in October 2020. 

Breitbart News Political Editor Emma-Jo Morris made the revelation during her testimony before the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

Morris told lawmakers that the FBI knew Hunter’s laptop was real no later than December 2019. Morris, who first revealed the contents of the laptop story in October 2020, said the bureau knew it was real before she published the first article on the laptop. 

“We know that the FBI knew that it was real. They knew is real since not just December 2019…which is when the subpoena that I published is from,” Morris said during her appearance before lawmakers. “We published the subpoena and they had already confirmed [that] the laptop was real and ‘not manipulated in any way,’ in November of 2019 — a month before they actually obtained the laptop to keep, which is when they gave that subpoena to John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of the Mac store, where Hunter Biden forgot the laptop.” 

Morris also accused then-deputy counsel at Twitter, Jim Baker, of helping to censor the story even though he knew the laptop was real. Before joining Twitter, Baker was deputy counsel at the FBI.

“Are we supposed to all sit here and pretend that he (Baker) didn’t know what that subpoena was when he saw it in the New York Post? I mean, let’s not insult our intelligence here and the intelligence of the American people,” Morris said. “Obviously, you knew what it was.”

Morris’s claim received backing when Chairman of The House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan (R-OH) released a part of Laura Dahmlow’s testimony where she revealed that the FBI knew the laptop was real but chose not to comment on the validity of Morris’ reporting.

“… If there is a foreign malign influence operation and we’ve got specific details about how those actors are propagating information operations, influence operations on platforms, that’s something we could share the specific details of,” Dahmlow said in her statement.

Dahmlow, section chief of the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF), added that one FBI analyst told Twitter executives that the laptop was real. However, the analyst was cut short by another FBI official.
