Federal authorities are investigating if emails allegedly discovered on a laptop at a Delaware repair shop discussing Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine were connected to a foreign intelligence operation, NBC News reported Thursday night.
Two people familiar with the matter told the network about the federal investigation.
The FBI took the laptop and a hard drive through a grand jury subpoena that was later published by the New York Post, a conservative newspaper.
The FBI declined to comment to The Hill on the reported probe, citing its standard practice of not confirming or denying an investigation.
The New York Post published several stories about the alleged emails, including one that hinted at an alleged meeting between Joe Biden and Vadym Pozharsky an adviser for the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, where Hunter Biden served on the board at one point. The Biden campaign has maintained the meeting did not occur.
The tabloid said it retrieved the documents used for the story from President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. It reported that the information was discovered on a laptop left at a repair shop in April 2019 and never picked up.
