President Biden’s embattled son, Hunter Biden, in his first TV interview since his father took office, is finally addressing the “laptop from hell” that contained comprised confidential information, stumbled to acknowledge that it “could be” his while also claiming that he doesn’t know whether he was a victim of theft, hacking, and or a Russian intelligence plot.

In this preview of an interview to be broadcast on “CBS Sunday Morning” this Sunday, Hunter was asked point-blank if the Macbook laptop that was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop back in 2019 was indeed in fact his.

“For real, I don’t know,” Hunter said in response. “I really don’t what the answer is; that’s the truthful answer. I don’t have any idea. I have no idea.”

However, when asked whether the laptop “could have been his,” Hunter would then respond, “Certainly.”

“Of course, certainly,” Hunter said. “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 — that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me.”

Biden’s embattled son became the center of the 2020 election during the final month of a heated presidential race after a trove of New York Post bombshell story reported a laptop formerly belonging to Hunter revealed his connection to business deals in China and Ukraine. According to the New York Post, the water-damaged MacBook Pro laptop was brought to a Delaware computer shop in 2019 for repair and was never claimed. The trove of emails revealed that Hunter introduced a top Burisma executive to his father, who was then vice president back in April 2015, before Biden admittedly threatened Ukrainian officials in December 2015 to remove Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin or he would withhold a $1 billion loan from the United States.

Other emails as part of the trove of reporting also revealed details of Hunter discussing potential business deals with China’s largest private energy company. Many of the emails were first disclosed in the Senate Finance Committee’s investigation report released last September just a few weeks before the laptop reporting over their findings in questionable financial transactions that Hunter and his associates received from foreign individuals during his time serving on the board of the energy company Burisma Holdings.

The laptop in question possessed a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation and was later seized by the FBI in December 2019 also contained personal x-rated photos and videos, including Hunter, who has struggled with an addiction to drugs, smoking crack, and engaging in sexual acts with an unidentified woman.

Hunter made the media appearance mostly to promote his new memoir, “Beautiful Things,” which is set to be released next Tuesday. The embattled son who last year declared himself an unemployed artist signed a secret deal contract for a tell-all memoir about his famous family and his drug abuse. Plans for the book were kept under wraps despite the fact Hunter was embattled for his foreign business dealings that became the subject of a federal investigation.

The full CBS interview will air in two parts, first on “CBS Sunday Morning” and then on Monday during “CBS This Morning.”
