Former congressman turned CNN political commentator appeared on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” and declared that it would be “dangerous” for the GOP to go after Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, with “stolen” information from his laptop.
Host Anderson Cooper said, “He has acknowledged that is his laptop, which he hadn’t done before. Your former Republican colleagues in the House expressed a lot of interest in holding hearings into Hunter Biden’s life and career. The information, whether it was legal or not to obtain it, it is out there from now from that laptop. Do you expect these legal moves in any way to give them pause or change the situation, the actual investigations?”
Kinzinger replied, “Quite honestly, I don’t think it will move the needle one way or the another. I don’t think anybody is going to vote Republican that didn’t or wouldn’t have because of Hunter Biden’s laptop. Hunter Biden is not the president of the United States. He is not a U.S. Senator or Congressman. He is a private citizen. What he did is the jurisdiction of the FBI.”
He added, “There is no difference in having stolen the data — I mean, a computer shop owner who Hunter Biden gave a laptop to fix, who stole his data, which to me has been incredible from the very beginning that has not been the bigger story. This is the equivalent of hacking into somebody. And to celebrate this and say there’s no problem, I’ve never understood it, and I think it’s a really dangerous path for the GOP to go down.”
He forgot to mention that Biden never went back for the laptop! Therefore the laptop became property of the store owner. Nothing was stolen.
In fact, store owner Mac Isaac just hit Biden with a defamation lawsuit for claiming that he “stole” it.
As New York Post reports:
Mac Isaac’s lawsuit alleges that Hunter left the store owner to twist in the wind for years while variously and falsely insisting that the laptop was not his, that it had been stolen or that his information had been hacked.
Della Rocca insists that Mac Isaac became the legal owner of the laptop after Hunter Biden dropped it off to be repaired in April 2019 — but failed to return to reclaim it despite attempts by Mac Isaac to contact him.
Kinzinger has always been a little RINO rat. It’s incredibly fitting for him to be on the Fake News Network’s payroll.
