Johnson, R-Wis., said in a letter to Wray obtained by Fox News that a whistleblower contacted his committee on September 24, claiming to possess a laptop that Hunter Biden left at his business, and that he had turned it over to the FBI.
Johnson noted that staff immediately asked the FBI to confirm certain details in order to validate the claim, but the bureau said they would not confirm or deny any of the information included in their request.
The letter included a series of questions Johnson would like the FBI to answer regarding the laptop, including whether the FBI does indeed "possess material from Hunter Biden's laptop," and, if so, when and how they acquired it, whether the FBI has determined whether the records on the computer are genuine or were altered at all, whether they determined whether the records were authored by Hunter Biden, or if there is evidence that the computer had been hacked.
Johnson asked the FBI to respond with answers to his questions no later than October 22.
In his letter, Johnson asked Wray to confirm whether the FBI did indeed issue such a subpoena, and why.
