A ranking FBI cyber official said during testimony on Tuesday that he has no idea where Hunter Biden’s laptop the bureau reportedly confiscated in 2019 is currently located.
“So where is it? The Laptop?” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) asked Assistant Director of FBI Cyber Division, Bryan A. Vorndran, who responded that he did not have “any information” on its whereabouts.
He went on to testify that he didn’t know where the laptop is, nor does he even know who should know the whereabouts of the laptop, according to PJ Media.
Gaetz at one point held up a copy of a receipt showing that in December 2019 the laptop was turned over to FBI agents by a computer repair shop in Delaware.
The Florida Republican then mentioned information regarding “international business deals, kickbacks, and shakedowns” that could potentially harm the Biden family including President Joe Biden.
“Has anyone at FBI Cyber been asked to make assessments whether or not the laptop creates a point of vulnerability?” Gaetz asked, but Vorndran did not directly respond to the question.
That led to a chuckle from Gaetz, who then continued: “Have you assessed whether or not the first family is compromised as a result of the Hunter Biden laptop?”
But the FBI official again sidestepped the question.
“So you don’t have it, you don’t know who has it, you don’t know where it is, you’re the assistant director. You know, earlier you talked about whether or not you were the Grant Hill or the Christian Laettner; it sounds you’re the Chris Webber, trying to call a time out when you don’t have one,” Gaetz chastized, referring to a pair of legendary college basketball games.
“Sir, again, we can do this back and forth for the next couple of minutes,” Vorndran stammered. “I don’t have any information on the Hunter laptop.”
“Do you know who we should put in that chair to ask these questions to?” Gaetz pressed, but the FBI official did not have an answer.
“Can you find out?” the Florida lawmaker asked.
“I will be happy to take your request back to FBI headquarters,” Vorndran said.
At that, Gaetz held up a thumb drive and said, “Mr. Chairman, I seek unanimous consent to enter into the record of this committee, the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, which I am in possession of.”
But the chair, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), refused, telling Gaetz, “I’m not .… I will object pending further investigation.”
