The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice are said to concur on the legitimacy of the Hunter Biden laptop recovered last week, a law enforcement source has told CBS news.
The news comes after days of media lies about the laptop being a “Russian disinformation” campaign – a thesis CBS’s source says is not true.
The revelation comes from CBS News Senior Investigative Correspondent Catherine Herridge:
NEW: Law enforcement source tells @CBSNews FBI + DOJ concur with @dni_ratcliffe laptop + emails, said to belong to Hunter Biden, were not part of Russian disinformation campaign + FBI has laptop. Separate reporting suggests could be part of foreign influence op @ClareHymes22

The U.S. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said on Monday that the laptop is not connected to a Russian disinformation effort, while Democrats begged to differ.
The Daily Mail and Fox News also confirmed on Tuesday: “The FBI has seized Hunter Biden’s laptop and has confirmed the former vice president’s son’s emails are ‘authentic’, while dispelling earlier claims that they are part of a Russia disinformation campaign.”
Mayor Rudy Giuliani revealed on Tuesday night that underage girls and discussions of being naked on FaceTime with a 14-year-old girl were found on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
