This week, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) released bank records showing that a firm linked to Hunter Biden received $100,000 from an organization that Grassley said was effectively an arm of the Chinese Communist government. More paperwork, according to Grassley and Johnson, would be provided in the coming days
This week, Rep. Matt Gaetz was asking the FBI’s assistant director of the Cyber Division, Bryan Vorndran, about the laptop. The owner of the repair shop phoned the FBI and surrendered the laptop to them in Dec. 2019 after which they took it. However, when pressed by Gaetz, Vorndran stated that he did not know its location.
“So you do not have it, you don’t know where it is, and you don’t know who has it, and you are the assistant director.” You said earlier whether or not you were Christian Laettner or Grant Hill; “He’s the Chris Webber of Washington, D.C., phoning a time out when he doesn’t have one,” Gaetz said, implying that the FBI official was evading questions.
At a hearing earlier this month, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) asked FBI Director Christopher Wray whether the bureau had investigated if what was on the laptop had exposed the country to danger — and he couldn’t answer that question. When Gaetz pressed him if he didn’t know, who would know where it went, Vorndran said he did not know that either.
Then Gaetz asked him if he would promise to look into it and provide them a briefing since there were additional issues that he would have to discuss with them in the future. Mr. Vorsndran stated that he would be delighted to convey the request back to the FBI for investigation. But then, in a surprise move, he declared that his cyber division had no business with this because it was not a cyber asset.
“I was shocked,” Rep. Matt Gaetz told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham this week, “that there wasn’t a discussion about the risk this presented.” “You have no idea whether they’ve been compromised or not.” That’s when he produced a flash drive and stated that he had a duplicate of the laptop that he would like to submit to the Congressional record. That is a “boom” moment if there ever was one.
