[Ed. – Good question. We actually know the answer, assuming the subpoena issued in December 2019 was complied with at the time, which apparently it was. That means the FBI office in Delaware did have the laptop, with information about Ukraine and the Bidens, at the time of the impeachment process. At the very least, such information was directly relevant to to question whether Trump had abused his office in encouraging Ukraine to continue its prior efforts to probe links between Democrats and Ukraine.]
EXCLUSIVE: House Republicans are calling on the FBI to reveal whether it was in possession of a laptop that reportedly contained emails by Hunter Biden during the impeachment of President Trump — and claiming the agency committed a “gross error in judgement” if it did not inform the White House.
“If the FBI was, in fact, in possession of this evidence and failed to alert the White House to its existence that would have given even more weight to the president’s legal defense, this was a gross error in judgement and a severe violation of trust,” the letter says.
The Post reported that the FBI was in possession of the laptop on which the emails were found in December 2019 — right in the middle of the impeachment of President Trump over remarks he made to the Ukrainian president about Biden’s conduct in the country.
