In an interview clip released Friday by CBS, Hunter Biden claimed that he does not know if the laptop that was involved in the 2019 FBI probe belongs to him, but it “certainly” could have.
“Was that your laptop?” “CBS Sunday Morning” host Tracy Smith asked Hunter Biden.
“For real, I don’t know,” Biden responded adamantly. “I really don’t know, that’s the truthful answer. I don’t have any idea. I have no idea whether or not…”
“So it could have been yours?” Smith questioned Biden.
“Of course, certainly. 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 Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me,” Biden said.
In a separate interview clip with CBS, Biden talked about his struggle with addiction and revealed that his father, President Joe Biden, once chased him down the family’s driveway as he attempted to escape an intervention.
“He chased you?” “CBS This Morning” host Anthony Mason asked Biden.
“Yeah, because I tried to get into — I tried to go to my car,” Hunter responded. “And my girls literally blocked the door to my car. Said, ‘Dad, Dad, please. You can’t. No, no.’ This was the hardest part of the book to write.”
“He grabbed me. He gave me a bear hug. And he said – he just cried. He said, ‘I don’t know what to do,'” Biden said.
Biden told Mason that all he could think about was how he was going to get away from his father so he could take a hit.
“I need to figure out a way to tell him that I’m going to do something, so that I can go and take another hit,” Biden recalled. “That’s the only thing I could think.”
“I don’t know a force more powerful than my family’s love — except addiction,” Biden said.
The full interviews will air Sunday and Monday. The interviews will also include information regarding the Department of Justice probe into Hunter Biden and more, according to CBS.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
