America First Legal Lodges Complaint Urging Probe into Alleged Falsified Hunter Biden Laptop Letter

On Tuesday, America First Legal (AFL) submitted a formal complaint to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), urging an inquiry into the questionable 2020 letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials, which raised doubts about the legitimacy of Hunter Biden’s laptop archive.

The complaint is directed at Biden for President, the Biden Victory Fund, Biden Action Fund, and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). It alleges a lack of transparency regarding the Biden campaign’s potential involvement in the development of the aforementioned letter, which characterized Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation.

“As detailed herein, the evidence suggests that the Respondents failed to disclose coordinated expenditures constituting in-kind donations with respect to the infamous ‘Letter of 51’ former intelligence officials claiming that the Hunter Biden 2 laptop story had ‘all the classic earmarks’ of Russian disinformation,” the complaint reads. “There are reasons to believe that the public statement by 51 former intelligence officials was a coordinated political operation to help elect Vice President Biden in the 2020 presidential election, as set forth below.”

Additionally, the complaint references campaign contributions made by those who signed the letter to Democratic candidates, along with the testimony provided by former CIA official Michael Morrell during his appearance before the House Judiciary Committee.

Morrell detailed his communication with then-Biden campaign advisor Antony Blinken, who coordinated the letter’s creation in response to the New York Post’s coverage of Hunter Biden’s laptop contents. Morrell also stated that he endorsed the letter due to his desire to see Joe Biden prevail over incumbent President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

Prior to the October 2020 presidential debate, Politico covered the letter, and Joe Biden referenced it to rebut Trump’s criticisms rooted in the New York Post’s reporting. Interestingly, Twitter and Facebook censored Politico’s reporting before the letter’s release.

Multiple news outlets, including the Daily Caller News Foundation, New York Times, and Washington Post, have confirmed the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s laptop contents. In May, IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley testified before the House Ways and Means Committee, revealing that the FBI had knowledge of the laptop’s legitimate contents as early as November 2019.

The veracity of the data on Hunter Biden’s laptop has been confirmed by various sources, including the Daily Caller News Foundation, New York Times, and Washington Post. Furthermore, in May, IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley testified before the House Ways and Means Committee, asserting that the FBI had been aware of the laptop’s genuine contents as far back as November 2019.

Additionally, in an October 2020 interview with the FBI, Hunter Biden’s former business associate Tony Bobulinski affirmed the authenticity of the laptop’s contents, as documented in a recently disclosed FBI FD-302 form summarizing the interview. Bobulinski’s involvement can be traced back to the well-known email thread, initially reported by the New York Post, in which former Hunter Biden business associate James Gilliar discussed the possibility of providing “the big guy” with a 10 percent stake in a potential business venture.

“10 held by H for the big guy?” Gilliar’s May 2017 email reads. He also texted Bobulinski about Joe Biden’s potential involvement in the deal, according to the House Oversight Committee. IRS whistleblower Joseph Ziegler testified in July that he understood the “big guy” to refer to Joe Biden.

Hunter Biden has initiated legal actions against several individuals in relation to the laptop’s distribution. His lawsuits target Delaware computer repairman John Mac Isaac, former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, and former Trump aide Garrett Ziegler. Additionally, he has filed a suit against the IRS, alleging unlawful disclosures by IRS whistleblowers Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, as perceived by his legal team.
