- Has the FBI determined whether the records on the computer was generated on that computer, is genuine, or has been altered in any way?

- Has the FBI determined whether these records are a result from someone hacking Hunter Biden’s computer?
3. Is it accurate that the FBI issued a grand jury subpoena from the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware to obtain this information? If so, when and why was this subpoena issued? Was this information ever offered to the FBI voluntarily?
4. When and how were you made aware that the Delaware computer repair shop owner possessed a computer and its electronic contents that he claimed originally belonged to Hunter Biden?
5. In addition to these records allegedly provided in response to a subpoena, has the FBI ever been in possession of any other of Hunter Biden’s laptop(s) or material from Hunter Biden’s laptop(s)?
- If so, please explain when and how the FBI obtained this information and what, if any, steps it took to investigate and authenticate that material.
