New FBI whistleblower claims FBI told agents not to look into laptop

FBI whistleblower claims bureau leaders ordered staff NOT to investigate Hunter Biden laptop and told them ‘the FBI is not going to change the outcome of the election again’

  • Johnson, R-Wisc., sent a letter to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Tuesday bringing forth the new whistleblower claims
  • 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 is demanding Horowitz look into the FBI’s handling of the Hunter Biden laptop
  • Horowitz said the OIG would not investigate the FBI’s handling of the laptop so as not to interfere with the DOJ’s investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax affairs

The FBI deliberately dragged its feet on the Hunter Biden investigation and told agents not to look into the Hunter Biden laptop, according to new whistleblowers who spoke with Sen. Ron Johnson.  

Johnson, R-Wisc., sent a letter to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Tuesday bringing forth the new whistleblower claims. 

‘Recently, my office heard from individuals with knowledge of the FBI’s apparent corruption,’ Johnson said. 

‘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 to Horowitz. 

Johnson is demanding Horowitz look into the FBI’s handling of the Hunter Biden laptop. 

‘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 said. 

‘I hope you understand that the longer your office stands on the sidelines and delays investigating the FBI’s actions, the harder it will be for you to uncover the truth and hold individuals accountable for wrongdoing.’ 

Horowitz told Johnson in February 2021 that the OIG would not investigate the FBI’s handling of the laptop so as not to interfere with the Department of Justice’s investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax affairs.

The new claims come after whistleblower allegations emerged in July that in the lead-up to the 2020 election the FBI labeled the laptop as ‘disinformation.’  

In October 2020, one month before the election, ‘an avenue of derogatory Hunter Biden reporting was ordered closed’ by Timothy Thibault, a senior FBI agent at the bureau’s Washington Field office, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who fielded the whistleblower complaints, claimed in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Thibault shut down the investigation despite evidence that some of the details were true, according to that whistleblower.  

 ‘Allegations provided to my office appear to indicate that there was a scheme in place among certain FBI officials to undermine derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation,’ Grassley wrote.

Earlier this month FBI director Christopher Wray, testified that he found allegations the FBI mishandled the laptop to be ‘deeply troubling.’ 

Meanwhile, the Department of Justice probe in Delaware has intensified in recent weeks over whether to bring charges on tax violations or making false statements on purchasing a gun, sources told CNN.

Hunter would have been prohibited from buying a gun at the time because of his well-documented struggles with drug addiction.

He revealed after the 2020 election that he was being investigated on tax issues but denied any wrong doing.
