A new report alleges that the FBI must have known as early as December 2019 that Hunter Biden thought Russians had stolen one of his laptops and would use compromising video stored on its hard drive to blackmail him or his father, who was running for president at the time.
The FBI's knowledge of Biden's beliefs would directly contradict what his father, President Joe Biden, told the American people in October 2020, when he insisted that videos, text messages, and emails from another abandoned MacBook laptop belonging to Hunter Biden were a Russian hoax.
Brian Della Rocca, an attorney representing John Paul Mac Isaac, told the Federalist on Wednesday that recently emerged video of Hunter Biden telling a prostitute he thought Russians might have blackmail on him was "definitely on the hard drive" of the laptop belonging to Biden that was seized by the FBI from Isaac's Delaware-based computer repair shop.
"This new revelation establishes that, since December 2019, the FBI had knowledge that a second laptop had been stolen from Hunter Biden and that that laptop contained material making the Biden family a national security risk and subject to Russian influence," Margot Cleveland wrote for the Federalist.
"Joe Biden surely received briefings on these risks well before his October 2020 denial of the authenticity of the laptop, so the question is: Did the FBI fail to provide Biden a truthful briefing on this intel, or did Biden fail to level with voters?" Cleveland asked.
Last week, the Daily Mail published video of a naked Biden telling a prostitute that "the Russians have videos of me doing crazy f***ing sex!" According to the Daily Mail, "after filming himself having sex with the woman using his laptop in January 2019, Hunter left the camera rolling as he recounted a Vegas bender in which he spent '18 days going round from penthouse suite to penthouse suite,' sometimes costing $10,000 a night."
Biden recounted to the prostitute that he nearly overdosed while partying with his drug dealer and two other men in Las Vegas in the summer of 2018. As the president's son tells it, at one point he became unconscious. When he awoke, "there was this Russian 35-year-old, really nice, pure brunette.
"She refused to leave and they wouldn't call an ambulance. And they didn't know whether I was dead or not, at first," Biden said in the video.
Later, he realized his laptop was missing.
"I think he's the one that stole my computer," Hunter explained on the tape.
"I think the three of them, the three guys that were like a little group. The dealer and his two guys, I took them everywhere," he said.
"They have videos of me doing this. They have videos of me doing crazy f***ing sex, f***ing, you know," Biden added. "My computer, I had taken tons of like, just left like that cam on," he continued, "and somebody stole it during that period of time."
The prostitute asked Biden if he believed the Russians would try to "blackmail" him with the compromising footage. "Yeah, in some way, yeah," he responded, noting that his father is running for president.
According to the Federalist, the video's source was the hard drive of the second Hunter Biden laptop that was abandoned at Issac's computer repair shop and seized by the FBI in December 2019.
A copy of that hard drive served as the basis for the New York Post's reporting on Hunter Biden's laptop in October 2020.
While running for president, Joe Biden repeatedly denied the veracity of the Post's laptop story, claiming during a presidential debate that "50 former national intelligence folks" told him it was a "Russian plant." Asked by former President Donald Trump whether he believed the "laptop is now another Russia, Russia, Russia hoax," Biden said: "That's exactly what [I] was told."
