The FBI and Director Christopher Wray are about to get a rude awakening over the Hunter Biden investigation

FBI Director Christopher Wray always seems a little too smug. But on Thursday, the smirk could be wiped from his pretty face when Republican members of the House Oversight Committee begin grilling him on mounting evidence that something is very rotten inside the agency. led by Wray.

At the top of the list is the curious question of why the FBI apparently did nothing with Hunter Biden’s laptop, which was turned over to two agents on December 9, 2019 by John Paul Mac Isaac, the alarmed owner. from the computer repair shop near the Biden. family homes in Greenville, Del., where Hunter had dropped off his MacBook eight months earlier.

Among other potential crimes to be uncovered on the abandoned laptop, you would expect the FBI to be interested, for national security reasons, in incriminating evidence of a corrupt foreign influence peddling scheme run by the Biden family throughout Joe Biden’s vice presidency.

It’s equally curious why the FBI apparently did nothing with another voluminous trove of corroborating documents, given to them in October 2020 by Hunter’s former business partner, Navy veteran Tony Bobulinski, including emails and other documents that duplicate those on Hunter’s laptop.

Bobulinski said he was questioned for several hours by FBI agents, as part of an investigation into Hunter, after he held an explosive press conference on October 22, 2020, alleging then-Democratic candidate Joe Biden , had lied when he claimed to have no involvement in Hunter’s foreign dealings. Bobulinski also said Joe Biden was the “Big Guy” Hunter’s partners referred to in the encrypted messages and intercepted voicemails.

According to an email, the “Big Guy” was to receive a 10% stake in Hunter and Jim Biden’s lucrative joint venture with Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC.

On the Feds radar

We know the FBI was watching Hunter on October 23, 2018, because agents showed up at the Biden family’s local high-end grocery store in Greenville, at the same time Delaware State Police arrived to investigate. about a bizarre incident in which her sister-in-law-turned-lover Hallie Biden threw her new gun in a trash can, only to find it missing when Hunter asked her to retrieve it.

We also know that the FBI was bugging Hunter’s partners at the Chinese company CEFC, which was a front for Chinese military intelligence, so the agents allegedly picked up some or all of the conversations that the vice president’s son had between 2015 and 2018 with CEFC. Chairman Ye Jianming, director Jianjun Zang and his associate Patrick Ho, the Chinese spies who would give him millions of dollars.

FBI surveillance of Ho came to light during his corruption trial after he was arrested at JFK Airport on Nov. 18, 2017. In a voice memo on his laptop, Hunter described Ho, who paid him $1 million. dollars as “legal collateral” as China’s “chief spy,” which intelligence experts say is an exaggeration.

We also know that Hunter has been under investigation since 2018 by Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss for possible tax and money laundering activities, as well as possible foreign agent violations, and that a Delaware grand jury heard testimony from several of them. his former business partners and lovers.

We know that at least one of these witnesses was asked “who the Big Guy is,” suggesting that the Hunter Biden investigation may implicate his father.

So why, in the face of all this evidence, has the FBI done nothing at least to allay fears that the president is compromised when it comes to China?

Now Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa says whistleblowers have advanced allegations that the FBI was covering up Hunter Biden’s information. There was “a scheme in place among some FBI officials to undermine derogatory information related to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation.”

Grassley claims the FBI was investigating Hunter’s “criminal and related financial activity” in 2020, and that it may have a “potential counterintelligence component.”

Grassley sounds the alarm

Grassley laid out the allegations last week, in a letter to FBI Director Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

In August 2020, FBI supervisory intelligence analyst Brian Auten “opened an assessment that was used by a team at FBI Headquarters to falsely discredit negative reports from Hunter Biden as disinformation and caused the cessation of investigative activities. Based on allegations, verified and verifiable derogatory information about Hunter Biden has been falsely characterized as disinformation,” Grassley wrote.

Additionally, Auten, a seasoned intelligence analyst, played a pivotal role in the farcical FBI Hurricane Crossfire investigation in July 2016 of the fake Steele Dossier “pee tape” concocted by Hillary’s campaign. Clinton to smear then-candidate Donald Trump as a Russian agent.

Grassley whistleblowers also accused Deputy Special Agent in Charge of the Washington Field Office, Timothy Thibault, of “falsely portraying[ing] as evidence of disinformation acquired from multiple sources that provided the FBI with derogatory information related to Hunter Biden’s foreign financial and business activities, even though some of this information had already been or could be verified.

Were Thibault or Auten involved in manipulating Hunter’s laptop or Bobulinski’s information?

Did Hunter or Jim Biden, or even Joe Biden, ever get a defensive briefing from the FBI warning them that CEFC was a front for Chinese intelligence?

If no defensive briefing was given, says a veteran former intelligence official, it could indicate that FBI counterintelligence was already investigating one or more of the Bidens.

An alternative theory is that Hunter, despite being a degenerate crack addict at the time, may have become an informal FBI source during Biden’s vice presidency, due to his extraordinary access, thanks to the influence of his father, to the Russian oligarchs of Vladimir Putin. shrine and senior Communist Party officials in China.

“The hope was that Chris Wray would walk away from being politicized in the FBI,” former director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News’ Maria Bartiroma on Sunday.

“But this whistleblower complaint very clearly on his watch [says] these FBI agents were trying to influence the outcome of the 2020 election by suppressing derogatory information about Hunter Biden and potentially Joe Biden. . .

“People need to understand that when we talk about our intelligence authorities, it is the FBI that is the primary national authority to investigate and prosecute election influence and election interference.

“It’s really a problem when the agency responsible for investigating these things is engaged in these things.”

Food aid from Biden’s son?

There are hints of possible collaboration with federal authorities on Hunter Biden’s laptop, in his contacts and calendar entries. Twelve entries in his contacts are labeled “FBI” or “Federal Bureau of Investigation” or “Special Agent,” some of which contain phone numbers but no names for two FBI offices in Pennsylvania, Newtown Square and Fort Washington.

There is a blank entry for “FBI Special Agent in Charge” in Milwaukee, WI, as well as an entry with a phone number and pager number for “DEA Agent”, presumably referring to the Drug Enforcement Administration, which is interesting in light of the preponderance of illegal drug activity captured on Hunter’s laptop.

Six entries labeled “ATF” or “BATF”, presumably for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, contain no phone number or name, but two are designated “Special Agent/Polygraph” .

The bulk of the law enforcement contacts on Hunter’s laptop – 16 in number, including what may be duplicates – are for the Secret Service, who were tasked with protecting Hunter, whose name code, we can reveal for the first time, was “Clan Chief.”

The Secret Service accompanied the Vice President’s wayward son on various overseas adventures, which must have given Hunter an air of official gravity when he needed to impress potential business partners in China and Russia. where bodyguards offer a certain cachet, especially if they are provided by the United States Government.
