A new whistleblower report from Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson’s office revealed new allegations of FBI misconduct over the Hunter Biden laptop during the 2020 election.
According to multiple whistleblowers, Johnson wrote in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday, agency officials “intentionally undermined efforts to investigate Hunter Biden.”
“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,'” Johnson wrote. “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.”
Johnson’s report comes one month after another whistleblower report published by Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley’s office made similar allegations against FBI leadership related to their handling of the computer abandoned by the president’s son. Contents from the laptop’s hard drive published by the New York Post weeks before the 2020 election revealed then-candidate Joe Biden lied about never speaking business with his son, “or with anyone else,” and actually stood to personally profit from foreign adversaries.
Washington Field Office Assistant Special Agent in Charge Timothy Thibault and Director of Election Crimes Branch Richard Pilger, whistleblowers alleged to Grassley’s office, coordinated to amplify defamatory information against President Donald Trump while giving cover to Hunter Biden, dismissing intelligence about Biden as disinformation.
“Multiple FBI whistleblowers, including those in senior positions,” Grassley’s office explained, “are raising the alarm about tampering by senior FBI and Justice Department officials in politically sensitive investigations ranging from election and campaign finance probes across multiple election cycles.”
Johnson’s latest whistleblower report comes as the federal law enforcement agency faces heightened scrutiny over its overt weaponization against political dissidents to the incumbent regime. Six years after the launch of Crossfire Hurricane, the deep state surveillance operation to smear Trump as a Russian agent, more than two dozen FBI officials raided the former president’s Florida residence at Mar-a-Lago. Attorney General Merrick Garland claimed at a press conference earlier this month the search was “narrowly scope[d],” though examination of the warrant shows authorization to confiscate any and all documents Trump may have come into contact with as president.
