The FBI has been in hot water recently as more and more discoveries expose them. However, this new admittance is nothing short of an outrage.
And the FBI has made a terrifying admission regarding the Hunter Biden laptop.
The Senate erupted in sparks yesterday as Senator John Kennedy put FBI Director Christopher Wray on the hot seat over the infamous Hunter Biden laptop story.
Kennedy, a fierce defender of truth and transparency, grilled Wray on why the FBI didn’t simply confirm the authenticity of the laptop when it first appeared in October 2020.
For nearly a year, the FBI knew about the laptop’s existence. Yet, instead of setting the record straight, they remained silent, allowing the media and the Biden campaign to paint the story as “Russian disinformation.”
Sen. Kennedy: “Why didn’t the FBI just say, hey, the laptop is real?”
FBI Director Wray: “We have to be very careful about what we can say, especially in the middle of an election season…”

“Why didn’t the FBI just say ‘hey, the laptop’s real?'” he demanded.
“Why didn’t you just tell everybody ‘the laptop’s for real. We’re not vouching for what’s on it, but it’s real. This isn’t a fiction.'”
Wray’s response was a predictable dance of bureaucratic jargon and obfuscation.
He cited ongoing investigations, the potential for political interference, and the ever-present fear of the Inspector General’s wrath. But for Kennedy, these excuses rang hollow.
“Others were in government,” Kennedy countered. “You’re the FBI! You’re not part of the White House or Homeland Security. You’re not supposed to be political. You see all this controversy going on? Why didn’t the FBI say ‘timeout folks, we’re not getting in the middle of this but the laptop is real.'”
Wray’s response? More platitudes about the importance of staying neutral and the dangers of influencing elections.
He specifically claimed that the FBI would not mention the laptop because of the election, which is the exact reason many people are saying they SHOULD have mentioned it.
“Again, we have to be very careful about what we can say— especially in the middle of an election season,” said Wray.
The reality is that the FBI’s silence on the Hunter Biden laptop was a disgrace. It allowed the Biden campaign, the media, and the intelligence community to push their false narrative and lies on the American people.
It fueled a firestorm of misinformation and disinformation, eroding trust in our institutions and undermining the very foundations of our democracy.
Senator Kennedy deserves our praise for holding the FBI accountable. He refused to accept the agency’s weak excuses and demanded that they answer for their failure to uphold the truth.
This is the kind of leadership we need in Washington – bold, uncompromising, and unafraid to stand up for what is right.
The American people deserve answers. We deserve to know why the FBI covered up the Hunter Biden laptop story.
We deserve to know who was involved, who gave the orders, and who needs to be held accountable.
