The story of Hunter Biden’s laptop, (and Hunter Biden himself, more generally), has been a tawdry tale full of sex, drugs, nepotism, politics, and influence, and new details about an attempted investigation into these worrisome traits has Americans furious.
Hunter Biden’s story became national news in the run-up to the 2020 election, on account of an abandoned laptop belonging to the now-President’s son turning up in a NYC repair shop, chock-full of damning material.
But that laptop and its contents were quickly and erroneously deemed “Russian misinformation” by the media, who appeared to be covering for then-candidate Joe Biden.
There is now evidence that the FBI was covering for Biden as well.
Timothy Thibault, the FBI agent alleged to have interfered with an investigation into Hunter Biden, was assigned by the Washington Field Office as “point man” to manage whistleblower Tony Bobulinski, the first son’s former business partner, before the 2020 election — but he suppressed his damning revelations, sources say.
Bobulinski spent over five hours secretly being interviewed by the FBI on Oct. 23, 2020, about his inside knowledge of then-presidential candidate Joe Biden’s involvement in his son’s business deals with China.
The previous day, he had revealed in a press conference that Joe Biden was the “Big Guy” due to get a 10% cut of a lucrative joint venture with Chinese energy firm CEFC, according to an email found on Hunter’s abandoned laptop.
Bobulinski gave the FBI the contents of three cellphones containing encrypted messages between Hunter and his business partners, along with emails and financial documents detailing the Biden family’s corrupt influence-peddling operation in foreign countries during Joe’s vice presidency.
That evidence went nowhere, however, after Thibault was suddenly appointed as the “point man” in the probe.
Bobulinski and his lawyer were given Thibault’s cellphone number and told that he would be their “point man” at the FBI thereafter.
That night, Bobulinski’s lawyer phoned Thibault, who said he would soon advise on next steps and whether Bobulinski should do a follow-up interview.
But neither Bobulinski nor his lawyer was contacted again. Nor was Bobulinski brought before a Delaware grand jury investigating Hunter.
Thibault suddenly retired from the FBI just days ago, and a number of conflicting reports about the details of the end of his career emerged, with some suggesting he had been escorted out of the agency.
