Fox News primetime star Sean Hannity told viewers on Monday he’d uncovered a bombshell on President-elect Joe Biden’s family so shocking that it could change American history.
More information has been uncovered on Hunter Biden’s laptop that will devastate the new Biden administration and his Democratic allies, Hannity said.

“In the weeks leading up to the election, Twitter, Facebook… and a lot of these companies tried to banish and not let you see what turned out to be an accurate report from The New York Post about the salacious materials on Hunter Biden’s laptop,” Hannity said.
“By the way, Democrats, the media mob, Big Tech, buckle up,” he said. “I have numerous, credible sources telling me the contents of this laptop will be devastating to the Bidens and the Democrats.”
“I’ve been told it is beyond that bad,” Hannity teased. He said the contents will “shock the soul of the nation.”
In mid-December, it was announced that a subpoena seeking documents from Hunter Biden asked for information related to more than two dozen entities, including Ukraine gas company Burisma, according to a person familiar with the Justice Department investigation.
President Donald Trump considered naming a special counsel to shield investigators from meddling by the incoming president, but was advised against the move by then-Attorney General William Barr.

Hunter’s ties to Burisma in particular have long dogged the political aspirations of his father. It’s unclear whether Hunter Biden’s work at the Ukrainian company is a central part of the federal investigation or whether prosecutors are simply seeking information about all his sources of income in recent years.
In addition to the Burisma-related request, the subpoena sought information on Hunter Biden’s Chinese business dealings and other financial transactions.
The probe was launched in 2018, the year before his father announced his candidacy for president. At one point in the investigation, federal prosecutors were also examining potential money laundering offenses.
The younger Biden joined the board of Burisma in 2014, around the time his father — then vice president — was helping conduct the Obama administration’s foreign policy with Ukraine.
Trump and his allies have long argued that Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine represented a clear conflict of interest for the Obama administration.

For months, the U.S. attorney’s office in Pittsburgh has also been collecting information from Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and others as part of the Justice Department’s process to receive and analyze information related to Ukraine, including documents Giuliani wanted to present to prosecutors that he had been gathering in Ukraine about Joe and Hunter Biden.
Hannity said the content from Hunter’s laptop would test Democratic lawmakers’ loyalty to the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law.
“We will see in the months ahead where all these groups stand on issues like law and order, impeachment… and who knows, maybe even the 25th Amendment,” Hannity said.
