FBI Agent Testifies in Hunter Biden Case, Says No Evidence of Tampering

(RepublicanJournal.org) – President Biden’s son Hunter is now on trial on federal gun charges, and his attorneys are trying to argue that his notorious laptop –- which much of the evidence against him comes from –- could have been tampered with. The prosecution took that seriously enough to call on an FBI agent who worked the case. Now the defense are probably regretting mentioning it.

On June 3, Hunter Biden went on trial in a federal court in Wilmington, Delaware on a felony charge of unlawful possession of a firearm. The charge is that on October 12, 2018 Hunter bought a handgun from a licensed dealer. Before the purchase he filled in the required paperwork, and testified that he didn’t use illegal drugs. Eleven days later his brother Beau’s widow, who he was in a relationship with at the time, found the gun and threw it away –- because she knew he was constantly using crack cocaine and didn’t trust him with it.

Hunter’s lawyers have argued that he wasn’t lying when he claimed he didn’t use drugs, just “in denial.” They’ve claimed he was addicted to crack before and after he bought the gun, but not when he was filling in the paperwork. And, of course, they’ve suggested the laptop he infamously left in a repair shop –- which contained thousands of emails, some of which openly discuss cocaine use and are now evidence for the prosecution –- could have been tampered with.

On June 4, FBI Special Agent Erika Jensen took the witness stand. Jensen was one of the agents assigned to investigate the firearms case. Hunter’s attorneys asked if she could rule out the possibility the laptop had been tampered with. Her reply was unequivocal –- she’d seen no evidence to suggest tampering.

That’s awkward for the defense, because the emails recovered from the laptop condemn their client. One reason Hallie Biden, Hunter’s partner/sister in law, took the gun from him is that the day after he bought it he emailed her to say he was meeting a crack dealer. When his own words say he was using crack when he bought the gun, his innocence will be a hard sell to a jury.
