Chuck Schumer Urges FBI Director To Ignore Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal
Schumer insists an investigation would 'undermine the rule of law'
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is scrambling to suppress an investigation into the laptop of former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.
The laptop, which was discovered in a Delaware computer repair shop, revealed damning contents and now threatens to kill the Biden campaign.
But Schumer insists an investigation would "undermine the rule of law."
The laptop's content suggests the Bidens were allegedly involved in international business schemes, which secured payments with Biden’s position as VP as leverage.
Earlier this week, the FBI confirmed that the emails leaked from Hunter Biden's laptop hard drive were "authentic" and not part of a "Russian disinformation campaign," as claimed by the media and Democrats.
“Our staff has had numerous conversations,” Jim Jordan said Tuesday.
“Which have independently confirmed for us that, in fact, these emails are real, they’re authentic,” Jordan added.
Meanwhile, Schumer is actively working to suppress the impending investigation.
The New York Democrat and fellow Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon wrote to FBI Director Christopher Ray.
“We write regarding press reports concerning materials allegedly describing activities by Hunter Biden, and found on a laptop at a Delaware repair shop."
“We are deeply concerned about the possibility that in response to these reports, the Trump Administration will take actions before Election Day that would seek to damage the Democratic presidential candidate and undermine the rule of law.”
The letter urges Wray “to resist pressure from President Trump and other partisan actors to take any actions intended to benefit President Trump politically on the eve of the election."
"Succumbing to such pressure would deeply undermine our national security interests and the credibility of law enforcement, and could have devastating consequences for the resiliency of our democracy.”
But it is not clear why Schumer believes an investigation into a credible accusation would undermine the rule of law.
Schumer's letter comes after a whistleblower CEO, and Biden insider stepped forward with a bombshell allegation, claiming he witnessed Joe and Hunter Biden discussing their alleged illegal foreign business deals.
Tony Bobulinski, who describes himself as a former business partner of Hunter Biden, issued a statement on Wednesday saying he heard Hunter and his father, former Vice President Biden, discuss his dealings with a mysterious Chinese energy firm in 2017.
Multiple federal officials later confirmed that Hunter's laptop and hard drive are linked to an FBI money laundering investigation that started in late 2019.
