The FBI has subpoenaed the laptop and hard drive belonging to Hunter Biden, and it has been connected to a money laundering investigation.
The “Case ID” is 272D-BA-3065729.
“272” is the bureau’s classification for money laundering, while “272D” refers to “Money Laundering, Unknown SUA [Specified Unlawful Activity]—White Collar Crime Program,” according to FBI documents. One government official described “272D” as “transnational or blanket.” “BA” indicates the case was opened in the FBI’s Baltimore field office, sources said.
Efforts by Democrats to deflect came up empty.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe confirmed that the laptop and the emails on it “is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign,” despite claims from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.
