Sen. Ron Johnson to Newsmax: FBI 'Preplanned' Sabotage of Hunter Laptop Story

(Newsmax/"Rob Schmitt Tonight")

By    |   Monday, 05 December 2022 08:02 PM EST

The FBI interfered in the 2020 elections, not the Russians or any other foreign government, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., tells Newsmax, saying that the agency "preplanned" a "sabotage" of the Hunter Biden laptop story before it ever surface.

"I think people should find that shocking," Johnson said Monday on "Rob Schmitt Tonight" "It doesn't shock me, but the FBI had the computer, we think, as early as December 2019."

Whistleblowers, Johnson said, have said the FBI had a scheme in August 2020 to downplay any derogatory information on Hunter Biden as the presidential election approached.

"That same month they provided both Sen. (Charles) Grassley and I an unsolicited and completely unnecessary briefing," Johnson said. He believes others were getting similar briefings that included statements such as, "You might have some foreign actors, hacking computers and then spreading that around as disinformation, you know? Information on certain people like oh, I don't know, maybe Hunter Biden."

The agency, he said, was "doing everything they could to play us, to dissuade us from ever looking at the laptop."

It worked, to an extent, Johnson said, because Republicans didn't "gobble it up right away," instead going to the FBI for extensive conversations.

"They never told us a word," he said. "They never told us that they actually had (the laptop). So again, the FBI is corruption and complicity in this whole cover-up of Hunter Biden."

The letter from 51 intelligence officers who said the laptop story had "all the earmarks of a Russian information operation — that letter was an information operation. That letter interfered in our elections. The FBI interfered in our elections," Johnson said.

Johnson called the members of the agency and the mainstream news media "partisans" who didn't want to see Donald Trump elected in the first place, "and they certainly didn't want to see him reelected."
