FBI agent accused of protecting Hunter Biden from laptop probes resigns

The FBI official accused of mishandling the Hunter Biden laptop investigation with extreme bias has resigned from the agency.

Timothy Thibault, the FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the case, was escorted out of the building last Friday.

Thibault resigned after Senate Judiciary ranking member Chuck Grassley asked Attorney General Merrick Garland to act on allegations of political bias influencing agency operations.

Republican Senator Ron Johnson sent a letter to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz last week, claiming the FBI has been deliberately stalling on the case.

“Recently, my office heard from individuals with knowledge of the FBI’s apparent corruption,” he wrote.

According to the Daily Mail, Johnson felt the FBI could no longer be trusted with the investigation, especially after whistleblowers claimed that leading FBI officials told their subordinates not to look into the matter.

“While I understand your hesitation to investigate a matter that may be related to an ongoing investigation, it is clear to me based on numerous credible whistleblower disclosures that the FBI cannot be trusted with the handling of Hunter Biden’s laptop,” he wrote. “I hope you understand that the longer your office stands on the sidelines and delays investigating the FBI’s actions, the harder it will be for you to uncover the truth and hold individuals accountable for wrongdoing.”

Thibault’s alleged mishandling dates back several years, lawmakers reported.
