Hunter Biden acknowledged that the laptop that was recovered last year reportedly containing a detailed catalog of his business dealings in Ukraine and elsewhere, may hay have been his.
“There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was the – that it was Russian intelligence,” Hunter Biden said during an interview with CBS.
The laptop began to gather attention after it was dropped off at a computer repair store in Delaware. The owner of the store, John Paul Mac Isaac, claims that Hunter Biden gave him the laptop and asked Isaac to recover the contents of the machine.
After repairing the device, Isaac claims he was contacted by law enforcement and the computer was seized by the FBI.
During the CBS interview, Hunter Biden briefly recalled a moment during the 2020 campaign that he says helped him turn away from drugs.
Hunter Biden said that President Joe Biden chased him down the family’s driveway and “grabbed me, gave a bear hug, and he said, and just cried, and said, ‘I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do. Please.”
“That’s how powerful. I don’t know of a force more powerful than my family’s love. Except addiction,” Hunter Biden added.
Although Hunter did not admit to owning the laptop, he is currently under investigation by Congress lawmakers.
