This edition of the Twitter Files focuses on how the FBI and the intelligence community discredited factual information about Hunter Biden before and after the contents of his laptop was released.

The laptop first came to light in December 2019 after a Delaware computer store owner reached out to the FBI about a laptop that Hunter Biden had left. That same month, the FBI issued a subpoena for the said laptop.

In August of 2020, Mac Isaac, the computer store owner, was concerned that he had not heard from the FBI considering that he discovered criminal activity on the laptop. The owner, then went on to email Rudy Giuliani about the computer, who then gave the story to the New York Post. Little to his knowledge, Giuliani was under FBI surveillance at the time.

The day before the story was published, Hunter Biden’s lawyer reached out to Isaac.

Shortly before 7 pm ET on October 13, Hunter Biden’s lawyer, George Mesires, emails JP Mac Isaac.

Hunter and Mesires had just learned from the New York Post that its story about the laptop would be published the next day. pic.twitter.com/59RV5h8ZsM
