“Why did they sit on it?” Sen. Johnson questions what the FBI knew about Hunter Biden and when

Appearing on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, Senator Ron Johnson called for FBI Director Christopher Wray to either confirm or deny the details of a laptop purported to have belonged to Hunter Biden.

Johnson said to Bartiromo  “The FBI has a duty to inform us. If they believe this was maybe Russian disinformation, they should give us a defensive briefing.”

He added “If, for example, they also believe that what information this whistleblower gave us is fraudulent, that would also be a crime, and FBI should tell us that.”

Senator Johnson also questioned what the FBI knew about Hunter Biden and when.

“Why did they sit on it?” Johnson asked “Are they covering up just because Hunter Biden might be engaged in things that also maybe should have been investigated and possibly prosecuted? Do we have two systems of justice: one for Democrats and one for Republicans? One for the well-connected versus one for the rest of the Americans?”
