Devin Nunes said Sunday that in a ‘normal world’ hundreds of people would be probing the contents of Hunter Biden‘s laptop, an issue close to the former top GOP member of the House Intelligence Committee.
During an interview with Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo, Nunes lamented over social media sites banning and suppressing the spread of the New York Post story revealing the incriminating contents of the laptop belonging to President Joe Biden‘s son Hunter Biden.
The story was published just one month before the 2020 presidential election.
Nunes’ comments Sunday morning were part of his first interview touting his new title of Chief Executive Officer for former President Donald Trump‘s new media business Trump Media & Technology.
‘Big tech and the fake news media complex in this country helped cover up evidence that clearly – I mean, this was major evidence that sat on that laptop,’ the former California Republican congressman said on Sunday.

‘The FBI had it for over a year. Nothing was done with it,’ he continued. ‘So, in a normal world, unlike the one that we live in now with this dystopian media that we have in social media, you would have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of media folks, reporters, investigative reporters, doing work on this.’
Nunes announced in December that he would resign from his post in Congress to take on the leadership role with Trump’s new venture. He assumed the new role on January 1, 2022.
In joining Trump’s media group, Nunes is hoping to help fight against Big Tech and social media suppression – especially when it comes to users sharing right-leaning views.
Nunes called it the ‘battle of all battles’ in an interview on his new role with conservative media site Breitbart published on Friday.
Truth Social, which is a proposed social media platform by Trump Media & Technology Group, plans to launch by the end of March.
Nunes assures that the goal of the new social media platform is not to compete with Parler and GETTR – two other social media sites branded on anti-censorship by conservative and right-leaning owners.
GETTR was created and run by former Trump spokesperson Jason Miller.

Trump has previewed ever since getting booted of Twitter that he would come out with his own social media platform.
When announcing his departure from Congress, the trump ally and 10-term member of Congress told his constituents that he was taking up a ‘new opportunity to fight for the most important issues I believe in.’
Trump Media & Technology Group released a statement calling Nunes ‘a fighter and a leader’ as they announced him joining the team.
‘He will make an excellent CEO of TMTG,’ Trump said.
Nunes, in the TMTG statement, said it was time to ‘reopen the Internet.’
‘The time has come to reopen the Internet and allow for the free flow of ideas and expression without censorship. The United States of America made the dream of the Internet a reality and it will be an American company that restores the dream. I’m humbled and honored President Trump has asked me to lead the mission and the world class team that will deliver on this promise,’ he said.
Nunes, if he remained in Congress, would be next in line to chair the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, which writes the nation’s tax law, if Republicans win control of the House in next year’s midterm election.
Instead he decided not to even finish out his 10th term.
