During the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, a story broke, expounded on by former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, concerning an abandoned lap top computer, reportedly dropped off for repairs by Joe Biden’s youngest son, Hunter.
After reviewing the disturbing content on the laptop, the store owner had contracted the FBI, who sat on in for over a year, providing cover for Joe through the election in November 2020.
The computer repair shop owner in Wilmington, Del., named John Paul Mac Isaac has said Hunter Biden left a damaged Apple computer at his shop in April 2019 and asked to recover any data.
Mr. Isaac said he met with F.B.I. agents in late 2019 and provided them with a timeline of events. The agents returned about two weeks later in mid-December with a grand jury subpoena allowing them to seize the laptop and the external hard drive. The subpoena was signed by a federal prosecutor in the U.S. attorney’s office in Wilmington who handles criminal investigations such as fraud, and Mr. Isaac acknowledged receiving it.
The agents also gave him a receipt for what they took, according to a photograph of it published by Fox News. The receipt included an F.B.I. code, 272D, the bureau’s internal classification for money laundering investigations, and “BA” for its Baltimore field office.
Officials separately confirmed that the F.B.I. seized the laptop and an external hard drive as part of an investigation, though they did not detail the inquiry or whether it involved money laundering or Hunter Biden.
In light of a large amount of data pulled from the laptop, this week on the Senate floor, Chuck Grassley (R-IA) presented financial records, the Senate obtained, that he said showed six-figure payments from the Chinese energy company to Hunter Biden’s firm, which included President Biden’s brother James Biden.
“Hunter Biden and James Biden served as the perfect vehicle by which the Chinese government could gain inroads here in the United States,” Sen. Chuck Grassley told CBS News.
They were both directly paid by Chinese entities and promised retainer fees for their China work, totaling $165,000, (R-IA) Grassley added.
U.S. banks have flagged over 150 suspicious financial transactions from Hunter and James Biden, according to CBS News on Wednesday. .

The great number of wire transfers included “large” amounts of money tripped for further review by American banks.
With wire transfers becoming a preferred choice for money launderers, the scrutiny over these transactions has increased.
Suspicious wire transfers over $10,000 are also flagged for review. Wire transactions involving more than $10,000 are also to be reported to the Internal Revenue Service. In addition international wire payments, like the Biden’s, are monitored by the Office of Foreign Assets Control to ensure the money is not a part of corrupt business schemes.
After years of apparently “getting away with it”, a grand jury is now currently investigating the Biden family for tax fraud, money laundering, and the violation of lobbying laws in relation to corrupt business deals undertaken while President Joe Biden was in top positions in the U.S. government.
