It has been alleged that the FBI officials received a flash drive with emails and text conversations from one of Hunter Biden's business associates' smartphones within a few days of the New York Post publishing its bombshell 2020 article on Hunter Biden's laptop.
Data recently made public suggests that the agency was well aware that the contents of Hunter's computer were not "disinformation," as the FBI had previously told the public and social media, according to the Post.
The flash drive was inventoried by the FBI's Computer Analysis and Response Team (CART) on Oct. 23, 2020.

Hunter's former business partner Tony Bobulinski used an iPhone and two Blackberry phones to communicate with the president's son about a profitable joint venture with Chinese people, and all of those communications were saved on the flash drive.
According to the FD-302 summary of the FBI interview with Bobulinski, the information on the flash drive spanned from the beginning of 2015 to the end of 2017.
“BOBULINSKI was aware that the emails published by the New York Post were legitimate because BOBULINSKI was copied on them and had records of the emails on his own cellular devices,” the interviewing agents wrote in their 13-page report.
The original Post report was suppressed by Twitter, partly due to FBI warnings. 51 former intelligence officers, including FBI agents, signed a letter claiming the laptop was false, even though many knew it was real.
Two IRS investigators who exposed Justice Department hurdles in their years-long Hunter Biden probe gave the House Ways and Means Committee a 700-page document dump earlier this month that included the FBI report.
The report redacts the names of the two Washington field office FBI agents. Bobulinski's attorney received a “FD-597 Receipt for Property” for the flash drive from the agents.
This appears to be the first look at the FBI's notes from the nearly six-hour interview, which Bobulinski briefed the media on. The 302 report shows that the FBI knew Hunter's laptop and the Post story were “legitimate” and not part of a Russian disinformation plot.
However, the FBI and U.S. intelligence community promoted that false narrative to Facebook, Twitter, and other censored media. Anti-Trump operatives Timothy Thibault in D.C. and Elvis Chan in San Francisco led the FBI's suppression campaign nationwide.
The FBI labeled derogatory information about the Bidens with a warning, despite the fact that the material was easily and actually verified.
