Lt. Col. Tony Schafer is a high-profile Conservative political pundit who spoke with Just The News recently about his experiences before the 2020 election, regarding his claims that an American intelligence agency approached him to locate a copy of the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop for evaluation of the Democrat Presidential candidate at the time- Joe Biden.

This story is important because it may establish that there are numerous copies of the contents of the Hunter Biden laptop, which would be a revelation to many people and help explain why investigations into the contents have been so complex and delayed.
“A three-letter agency came to me and said, ‘Hey, we’ve heard that you have access to a copy of the Hunter Biden hard drive. Could we get a copy?’” Shaffer said during the interview with Just The News. “And I said, like, ‘Do you know what’s on there? I mean, we’re talking about everything from child porn, too, you know, all these issues regarding the president.’
“And they said, ‘We don’t care. … We want to either confirm or refute it. We want to act factual. We don’t have a political dog in the fight. What our concern is, is that if there’s compromising information on that hard drive, this is before the election, the president could be compromised to the level of owing either China or Ukraine something. And this is what this three-letter agency was concerned about,” Shaffer said.
Shaffer is a former U.S. Army Reserve lieutenant colonel who became known nationally for his claims about mishandled intelligence before the September 11 attacks, and his book on the topic, Operation Dark Heart, was censored- bringing him more recognition.
Shaffer has referred to his long ties to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), which he claims allegedly ran a secret program called Able Danger. Able Danger had identified lead 9/11 hijacker Mohammad Atta in advance of the attacks on New York City, which were ignored, some speculate, by the US Government.
According to Just The News, Schaffer’s account of an intel agency showing interest, in 2020, in evaluating Biden to determine if he had been compromised can be verified by numerous sources.
“A U.S. official directly familiar with the effort confirmed the request to Just the News, saying the intelligence community wanted to know if anything on the hard drive had been hacked, whether the Biden family was compromised, and whether there were any patterns about how foreign adversaries were seeking to compromise prominent Americans,” JTN reported. “The agency abandoned the request when it became apparent there were multiple versions of the hard drive floating around and could not ascertain chain of custody, the official said.”
According to their story, Shaffer’s involvement was confirmed by a lawyer for the family of John Paul Mac Issac, the Delaware computer repairman who turned the laptop over to the FBI in late 2019, also confirmed in October 2020. Additionally, the family attorney confirms that the shop owner was approached.
And JTN claims that a third party who was approached by Shaffer also confirmed an effort in fall 2020 to get a copy of the laptop for intelligence purposes.
None will confirm which Intelligence agency was interested in the laptop.
Shaffer told the news source that his attempts to secure a copy of the Hunter Biden laptop in late October 2020, just one month before the election, were ongoing when he was asked to stand down by an official from the undisclosed- spy agency.
“They were in meetings with me when we were trying to negotiate to get a copy of the hard drive,” he said. “And in the end, their leadership said, ‘Stop, don’t touch it. We don’t want to know.’”
Curiously, after that, numerous top national security agencies had Politico publish a letter suggesting the Hunter Biden laptop had the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign. That move allowed Big Tech to censor all information getting out about the laptop to the voters.
“Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say. More than 50 former intelligence officials signed a letter casting doubt on the provenance of a New York Post story on the former vice president’s son,” Politico reported on Oct. 19, 2020– just weeks before the election, when many places were in Early Voting.

Their claims of the laptop being Russia’s disinformation campaign, have since been dispelled.
Shaffer said the experts, who included former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA officials, admitted in the letter that they had no intelligence whatsoever to back up their claims, yet the damage to keep the contents of the laptop away from the American voter- was successful, helping to give Biden victory.
“It was a hit piece based on those individuals siding with a political cause and party over their oath of office,” Shaffer said, slamming the Intel members who signed the letter.
