FBI, DoJ agree with Director of National Intelligence - Biden laptop not part of a Russian plot, emails appear to be authentic
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.
Senior federal officials told Fox News on Tuesday that the bureau is now in possession of the computer allegedly containing emails that could purportedly implicate Joe Biden in his son's international business dealings during his time as VP.
Insiders said both the FBI and the Department of Justice have concurred with National Intelligence John Ratcliffe's assessment on Monday that there is no evidence to support the files are part of a Russian disinformation scheme
Ratcliffe shut down the allegations after Democratic House Intel chair Adam Schiff said the documents were a 'smear' on Biden that 'comes from the Kremlin'.
Law enforcement sources also confirmed the emails in question, which includes one in which Ukrainian official Vadym Pozharskyi thanked Hunter for inviting him to meet his father, were real.
