DONALD Trump Jr claimed that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats "impeached the president for being 100 percent right about Joe Biden."
Don Jr took to Twitter on Wednesday to give his two cents on the Hunter Biden laptop scandal and demanded to know why the Dems impeached his dad if the FBI had this device.

"If the FBI had the laptop all along why did they let Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats impeach [Donald Trump] for literally being 100 [percent] right about Joe Biden?" he wrote.
"FBI leadership is corrupted," Don Jr added a year after his dad was impeached after two votes in the Democratic Party-controlled House of Representatives in December 2019.
The FBI and Justice Department officials, and Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe denied that the seized MacBook Pro is part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
"Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that," Ratcliffe said.
"And we have shared no intelligence with [House Intelligence Committee Chair] Adam Schiff [of California] or any member of Congress.
"It’s funny that some of the people who complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence.
"Unfortunately, it is Adam Schiff who said the intelligence community believes the Hunter Biden laptop and emails on it are part of a Russian disinformation campaign."
A Trump-supporting computer repairman supposedly found the emails relating to Hunter's Ukrainian dealings and an alleged video of him smoking crack during a sex act.
The water-damaged laptop had been dropped off in April 2019 and when Hunter didn't collect it, John Paul MacIssac handed it over to the FBI that September.
He later gave a copy of the hard drive to Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who leaked it to the New York Post in mid-October.
One unverified email allegedly revealed how Hunter introduced his dad to a Burisma boss Vadym Pozharskyi, when he was a board member and Joe Biden was vice president.
Biden's campaign has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing regarding his son's dealings in Ukraine.
But some Republicans claimed Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire a prosecutor investigating the energy firm Pozharskyi was an advisor to.
The Post published the bombshell "Ukraine, crack, and sex" scoop last Wednesday, which was later censored on Twitter and Facebook.
Their source was Giuliani, who said Delaware MacBook repairman John Paul MacIsaac gave his lawyer a copy of the hard drive.
MacIsaac, 44, said Hunter had not returned for the water-damaged laptop he left in to be repaired and said he felt uncomfortable with what he found on the device.
Last week, the New York Times reported that Trump had been briefed on Russia using Giuliani to spread disinformation and undermine Biden.
One of Giuliani's questionable contacts in Ukraine is Andrii Derkach, a politician the US Treasury believes to be a "Russian agent."
The feds were reportedly investigating whether the explosive data leak two weeks ahead of the election is linked to a foreign influence operation.
Last year, Trump was accused of pressuring Ukraine to dig up dirt on Biden and Hunter, who was on the board of energy company Burisma from 2014.
The president allegedly withheld $400 million of congressionally allocated military aid to Ukraine – but the Republican-controlled Senate acquitted him on February 5, 2020.
During a July 25, 2019 call with President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump urged the Ukrainian leader to investigate discredited allegations against the Bidens, per a rough transcript.
"There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the
prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so
whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great," Trump said.
"Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you ·can look into it," he added. "It sounds horrible to me."
Their conversation reportedly came after Trump had blocked millions in monetary aid to Ukraine until Biden was investigated, but the White House denied this conditional payout.
Trump has repeatedly insisted that the call was "perfect" and described his impeachment as a "witch hunt."
