Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr has accused Democrat President Joe Biden of lying to the American people about his son’s “Laptop from Hell.”
Barr appeared on Fox News’s “America Reports” on Monday and said he was “shocked” because Biden “knew it was a lie.”
Barr said he was “very disturbed” that Biden “lied to the American people” about Hunter Biden’s laptop during the presidential debate in October 2020.
The laptop was confirmed by The New York Times in a recent report after Democrats, Big Tech, and the media spent months claiming the story was “Russian disinformation.”
“He’s squarely confronted with the laptop, and he suggested that it was Russian disinformation and pointed to the letter written by some intelligence people that was baseless—which he knew was a lie,” Barr said.
“And I was shocked by that.”
Co-host Sandra Smith asked Barr if Hunter’s laptop could become a “problem” for the White House.
“From a political standpoint now that this is in people’s consciousness, it had been suppressed up until now, obviously they have a hot potato, and just to see how they handle it will be interesting,” Barr said.

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley said of the scandal and the coverup:
“In the aftermath of the New York Times admitting that the Hunter Biden laptop was authentic all along, the Biden White House has gone into radio silence — and few reporters are pressing the President for an answer.
“White House press secretary Jen Psaki previously spread the false claim that the laptop was Russian disinformation (as did President Biden).
“She is now saying that it would be inappropriate for her to address her prior comments on the scandal.
“Thankfully, there has been no run to the local ice cream store but this cone of silence is occurring as reports come out of additional evidence acquired on Hunter Biden in the ongoing criminal investigation.
“Psaki was not as reticent when she was spreading the false story (in contradiction to the findings of American intelligence) that this was a hoax.
“She declared ‘I think it’s broadly known and widely known that there was a broad range of Russian disinformation back in 2020.’
“Now that her statements (and those of the president) are recognized as untrue, Psaki will not entertain questions, responding ‘I’d point you to the Department of Justice and Hunter Biden’s representatives.’
“Of course, the Justice Department will not comment on pending investigations. However, the question was about her own role in spreading, ironically, disinformation.
“The radio silence is deafening as new reports indicate that the grand jury continues to drill down on Hunter Biden’s finances.
“As we discussed earlier, the woman who had a child out of wedlock with Hunter Biden has given documents detailing his finances to the grand jury.
“Notably, Clint Lancaster, an attorney for Lunden Roberts, told CNBC he also offered ‘a significant amount of [Biden’s] financial records’ to investigators in response to a subpoena and that he ‘expects’ Hunter Biden to be indicted.
“With the rising possibility of an indictment, the media has to try to clean up its long promulgation of this false claim.
“It is not, however, addressing what those now authentic emails say about the influence peddling schemes of the Biden family,” he wrote.
