In an interview clip released on Friday, Hunter Biden said that the laptop first reported on last fall by the New York Post “could” be his, potentially casting doubt on past comments from President Biden that he thought the laptop was Russian disinformation.
“For real, I don’t know,” Hunter Biden told CBS’ Tracy Smith in response to a question about the origin of the laptop during an interview for “CBS Sunday Morning.”
Smith then asked the younger Biden whether the laptop “could” be his.
“Of course certainly,” he responded. “It, it, there could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was the — that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me.”
But President Biden previously said that the information on the laptop, details of which have been widely reported on – including Hunter allegedly introducing foreign oil executives to his father – was Russian disinformation.
