FBI Agent Testifies: Hunter Biden’s Laptop Data Was Not Tampered With Despite Claims From Intelligence Officials

 June 5, 2024

In a significant turn of events at Hunter Biden's gun trial, FBI agent Erika Jensen testified that the data on Hunter Biden's laptop had not been tampered with, debunking previous claims.

Breitbart reported that the ongoing gun trial of Hunter Biden has seen many new revelations, with the latest testimony from FBI agent Erika Jensen drawing significant attention. Jensen, who played a critical role in the investigation, made a crucial statement regarding the integrity of the infamous laptop at the center of a political and media storm.

Erika Jensen, whose expertise is often sought in high-profile cases, specifically addressed the ongoing speculation around the data integrity of what has been informally dubbed the 'Laptop from Hell.'

During her testimony, Jensen was explicitly asked by Hunter’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, if there was any indication of file tampering. Her response was straightforward and unequivocal: "I did not."

The Initial Claims and Public Speculation

Speculation about the laptop began with a report by Breitbart News's Emma-Jo Morris in October 2020. This report, initially covered by the New York Post before Morris moved, brought the laptop into the public domain, causing immediate waves due to its timing ahead of the 2020 presidential elections.

President Joe Biden and his press secretary, Jen Psaki, initially responded to the news by labeling it as Russian disinformation and pushed back against its authenticity and the implications it carried.

In response to widespread rumors and the political implications, an analysis was conducted by Hunter Biden’s forensic expert, Denver Riggleman. In 2023, Riggleman shared insights on CNN, stating that the data in the 'public sphere' did not correspond with what was found on the actual laptop, implying discrepancies in public versus actual data.

The testimony delivered by Erika Jensen not only counters Riggleman’s public statement but provides a much-needed factual base to the case, given the wide circulation of various unverified claims.

Supporting FBI agent Jensen's testimony, the Department of Justice has also played a crucial role by authenticating the laptop’s origins. It confirmed that Hunter Biden did indeed leave his laptop at a computer repair store and that the files on the laptop matched information obtained from Hunter's iCloud account through a legally obtained search warrant directed at Apple.

This authentication by the DOJ is pivotal as it supports Jensen's testimony and dismantles the foundation of the widespread claim that the laptop might have been part of a foreign disinformation campaign aimed at influencing the U.S. election.

Previously, both President Joe Biden and Jen Psaki had mischaracterized the situation, further complicating public perception. President Biden described the laptop as “a smear campaign” and “a bunch of garbage,” reinforcing the idea, backed by his former press secretary Psaki, that the laptop was tied to "Russian disinformation."

Following along, it took CNN over 500 days to correct its stance on the laptop’s authenticity, which demonstrates the complications and the slow pace at which accurate information sometimes emerges in complex news stories like this one.

The invaluable testimony of Jensen not only provided clarity but also highlighted the dangers of misinformation. Given the political sensitivity of the laptop’s contents, accurate reporting and evidenced-based statements like those made by Jensen are crucial to maintaining public trust in media and governmental processes.


As the trial continues, the testimonies of experts like Erika Jensen will continue to be a focal point, given their ability to cut through speculation with facts and verified information. It remains essential for the media and public officials to reflect on their responses to such situations, ensuring that facts lead over preliminary judgments or politically charged narratives.

While the journey of Hunter Biden's laptop from a repair shop to the center of a national controversy has been tumultuous, the clear, non-tampered declaration by FBI agent Erika Jensen provides a semblance of closure on that part of the story.

The importance of relying on verified facts cannot be overstated in an era where misinformation can spread rapidly. It’s a reminder of the role that thorough investigation and grounded testimony play in preserving the integrity of public discourse.
