Hunter Biden revealed that the laptop involved in the 2019 scandal ‘certainly’ could have been his
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.
