Skip to comments.Sen. Ron Johnson to Newsmax: FBI 'Preplanned' Sabotage of Hunter Laptop Story
Posted on 12/06/2022 6:14:32 AM PST by Red Badger
The FBI interfered in the 2020 elections, not the Russians or any other foreign government, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., tells Newsmax, saying that the agency "preplanned" a "sabotage" of the Hunter Biden laptop story before it ever surface.
"I think people should find that shocking," Johnson said Monday on "Rob Schmitt Tonight" "It doesn't shock me, but the FBI had the computer, we think, as early as December 2019."
Whistleblowers, Johnson said, have said the FBI had a scheme in August 2020 to downplay any derogatory information on Hunter Biden as the presidential election approached.
"That same month they provided both Sen. (Charles) Grassley and I an unsolicited and completely unnecessary briefing," Johnson said. He believes others were getting similar briefings that included statements such as, "You might have some foreign actors, hacking computers and then spreading that around as disinformation, you know? Information on certain people like oh, I don't know, maybe Hunter Biden."
The agency, he said, was "doing everything they could to play us, to dissuade us from ever looking at the laptop."
It worked, to an extent, Johnson said, because Republicans didn't "gobble it up right away," instead going to the FBI for extensive conversations.
"They never told us a word," he said. "They never told us that they actually had (the laptop). So again, the FBI is corruption and complicity in this whole cover-up of Hunter Biden."

Time for Trump to start discussing cleaning out the FBI, this has been a problem for years.
I find it amazing that the Republicans had to use the evidence that dropped in their laps via the purchase of Twitter by the world’s richest man. All the huffing and puffing and hearings by Republicans produced nothing.
Of course, with the incontrovertible evidence now in hand, Republicans will continue to produce nothing.
It’s almost as if they didn’t want Trump to win.
Trump screwed up the gravy train for both Reps and Dems.
That is why the conspired to get rid of him.
<< FBI had a scheme in August 2020 to downplay any derogatory information on Hunter Biden as the presidential election approached. >>
More accurately, any information from Hunter’s computer that revealed the extent of the corruption of Joe Biden himself in his dealings with China and Ukraine.
Trump appointees Barr and Wray at DoJ BOTH involved in the conspiracy to derail Trump
I do find it shocking. What is going to be done about it?
They didn’t want Trump to win...MANY Republicans have their hands in the till and they don’t want this revealed and they don’t want it to end!
We have NOT had a properly functioning DOJ in now 14+ years.
Without a prosecutorial arm there’s little Congress can do other than ‘investigate’ & make referrals to the DOJ or ‘huff & puff’ as you put it.
*** I do find it shocking. What is going to be done about it?***
I’m assuming that’s a rhetorical question, but if not the answer is…Not a darn thing. Nothing, zip, zero, nada.
Obama Biden Govt in Exile——Ran Covert Operations:
<><>recall that Biden family corruption was the worst kept secret in Washington,
<><>this threatened to derail Biden’s third try
<><>aggressive steps halted media coverage of Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell
<><>whose shady extensive overseas business arrangements profited the family.
<><>Biden deputy campaign mnger Kate Bedingfield, currently WH comm/director sprung to life,
<><>in 22019 she blasted the NYT’s quasi-critical piece WRT Hunter’s multimillion dollar paycheck from Burisma
<><> and his vp father’s try to stop the Ukrainian govt’s inquiry into corruption, calling it a “baseless conspiracy theory.”
<><>In a scorching memo to the media in Jan 2020, Bedingfield and Antony Blinken instructed reporters about how to cover Trump’s (correct) allegations regarding VP Biden’s successful demand in 2015 to fire a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma.
<><>“[To] artificially prop-up these egregious lies based on the ‘principle’ that if partisans make accusations, they have to be treated as legitimate regardless of the facts, is to make you an enabler of misinformation,”
<><>Bedingfield and Blinken warned, Reporters who did not follow their demands were guilty of “malpractice.”
Yes, the FBI has been compromised since at least the 90s. I believe they gave HRC those 900 FBI files on her enemies. They were taking pictures of our license plates in Jarbige, NV. in 2000. I told one, “it’s a Subaru, not a TANK!
Nice list, thanks!
Seems the real insurrection was being done by 'intelligence' thugs who thought they were smarter than the American people.
The old KGB didn't allow free elections either because THEY thought they were smarter than the Russian people. Only show elections and trials in Iran and North Korea too.
Were Clapper and Brennan leaders in the coup? Did they really feel more comfortable with the goons and thugs of the world than with Thomas Jefferson and our Founding Fathers?
the government wants to stop the spread of misinformation
because they dont like competition
I think the reason they didn't gobble it up was the choice of Giuliani as a conduit. Giuliani was working for Trump and gave the NY Post the laptop contents shortly before the election.
It was also widely reported that prior to this Giuliani had been running around Ukraine looking for information to support Trump.
The timing, Russia's history of meddling in the 2016 election, and the choice of Rudy as a messenger all made people cautious.
Picking a Murdoch outlet didn't help.
“Without a prosecutorial arm there’s little Congress can do other than ‘investigate’ & make referrals to the DOJ or ‘huff & puff’ as you put it.”
Well, they could defund the DOJ until the DOJ acts on their requests. But Republicans don’t want to do that. They just want to make a big show of investigating and making referrals, knowing full well that nothing will ever come of them.
