Fox News contributor and conservative podcaster Dan Bongino suggested that President Donald Trump bring FBI “props” to his final debate Thursday with Democratic nominee Joe Biden so he can question him about his son Hunter Biden’s laptop.
In an interview with Sean Hannity Wednesday evening, the former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent suggested that, as questions continue to swirl about new, credible allegations of corruption involving the former vice president and his son, the country needs answers roughly two weeks out from Election Day.
Specifically, Bongino said the president, who runs the risk of having his mic cut off during the debate according to published accounts, should bring a copy of FBI documents related to obtaining possession of the laptop from a computer repair shop owner in Delaware last December.
In addition, Bongino said Trump should bring a copy of the work order Hunter Biden allegedly signed authorizing the work and ask the former VP and long-serving U.S. senator if it, indeed, is his son’s signature.
“This story is super damaging,” Bongino said, referencing a trove of information obtained from laptop that appears to indicate shady business deals in Ukraine, China, Russia, and Kazakhstan involving Joe and Hunter Biden and the son’s business associates.
“Everybody knows what it’s like, sadly, to have someone abuse their power for cold, hard cash,” Bongino continued.
He added that because the media and the president’s political nemeses are advising him against pursuing the story is exactly why he should stay focused on it.
“President Trump should do a couple of things” at the debate, Bongino continued. “He should bring the FBI receipt with him — a copy — that they gave to the computer store owner. He should read out the case number because the case number is ‘272-D,’” the FBI’s three-number designation denoting a money-laundering investigation, and ‘D’ means the probe is “transnational.”
He added that the designation also includes the letters “BA,” which “is short for the Baltimore field office.”
Earlier Wednesday, Fox News reported that the FBI’s subpoena of the Hunter Biden laptop and hard drive last winter was linked to a money-laundering probe, according to documents obtained by the outlet.
It’s not clear if that probe is ongoing or whether it is linked directly to Hunter Biden, the network reported.
“Multiple federal law enforcement officials, as well as two separate government officials, confirmed the authenticity of these documents, which were signed by FBI Special Agent Joshua Wilson,” Fox News added.
One document is an “FBI Receipt of Property” form. It provides details with agents’ interactions with “The Mac Store” owner John Paul Mac Isaac, who initially contacted the bureau after finding what has been described as disturbing content, among other materials.
“The FBI cannot open a case without predication, so they believed there was predication for criminal activity,” one unnamed federal official told Fox News. “This means there was sufficient evidence to believe that there was criminal conduct.”
On the debate stage Thursday, Bongino continued, Trump should not only bring up the case but also bring with him copies of the FBI’s documentation.
Trump “should say, you know, ‘Why would your son be involved in a money-laundering investigation — is that anything to do with the ‘big guy?’” Bongino said.
An email reportedly recovered from the Hunter Biden laptop suggests that the phrase “big guy” may be Joe Biden.
“He should also bring the signed receipt for Hunter Biden who turned over the computer to the store and signed his name to it,” said Bongino. “What is this, Joe? You wanna go on the record?
“I’m not kidding,” added Bongino. “If they’re gonna mute his mic, at least President Trump has props.”
