Former Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Sunday said that at least 300 people would be investigating Hunter Biden's laptop in a "normal world."
During an appearance on Fox News with host Maria Bartiromo, Nunes connected Russia's possible invasion of Ukraine to the Biden family.
"Where are we today?" Nunes asked. "Remember, the invasion of Ukraine started in 2014 under Obama and Biden. It was the Obama-Biden administration that wanted to give them blankets and then it was this Hunter Biden laptop where the information existed when they were impeaching a president over this, clearly, the information was out there that it was really the Bidens who had issues, not just with Ukraine, taking money from Ukraine, but also Russia, also China."
According to Nunes, Russian President Vladimir Putin smells weakness in the United States.
"And I believe what they're going to do is, you know, probably, you know, force the hands of the Ukrainian people and basically put a choice in their hands of do they really want to fight and have bloodshed or is Putin going be able to install someone that he can control?" the former congressman said.
Bartiromo wondered if Biden has "conflicts of interests" that were dictating his decisions around Ukraine.
"This is major evidence that sat on that laptop," Nunes replied. "The FBI had it for over a year and nothing was done with it. So in a normal world, unlike the one that we live in now with this dystopian media that we have and social media, you would have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of media folks, reporters, investigative reporters doing work on this."
"Sadly, you've only had a few," he added. "The American people deserve the right to know, what is it that the Russians, the Chinese or the Ukrainians have on politicians in this country. That information is known to the FBI, but yet, the American people still don't have a clue."

In an email to New York Times columnist Michelle Cottle, conservative gadfly Ann Coulter ramped up her attack on Donald Trump and dragged the former president's daughter and son-in-law into the fight.
Before that she claimed the best thing that could have happened for the GOP would have been for Trump to have been "vaporized" after he was first elected.
Last week, Coulter made waves with a full-throated attack on Trump in a column where she wrote, "No one wants Trump. He’s fading faster than Sarah Palin did — and she was second place on a losing presidential ticket.”
Not content to stop there, she responded to a request for additional comment from Cottle by going off on the president for damaging the Republican Party.
“Trump accomplished everything he was ever going to accomplish at 2 a.m.” [on election night in 2016] the columnist reported. “The best thing that could have happened to the Republican Party (and the country) would have been for him to be vaporized at the moment he was announcing his victory. Pence would have been afraid to betray Trump’s supporters. Trump wasn’t!”
Continuing in that vein, she attempted to make the case for Florida Gov Ron DeSantis to be the new face of the Republican Party, writing, "DeSantis is better than Trump, for many, many reasons, including: He won’t bring Jared and Ivanka into the White House.”
She then added that she thinks the Florida Republican can dash Trump's hopes of re-election, writing, "He’s mostly just ignoring the 11-year-old. Unlike Trump, DeSantis has a day job.”

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday morning, former Donald Trump White House director of Communications Alyssa Farah Griffin predicted that her former boss will go down to defeat if he runs for president again in 2024.
Appearing with former Trump advisor David Urban -- who did not agree with her on all of her points -- Farah Griffin said Republicans in 2024 will have a "come to Jesus moment" when they acknowledge he will lose again.
Speaking with host Dana Bash, she explained, "It's no question that the January 6th committee is going to loom large over the next couple of years of Donald Trump's life, I actually surprisingly agree with David on this, but what is going to take Trump down in terms of 2024, being the nominee and potentially being the president, is less his legal woes and much more the country's fatigue with him."
"There is a recent AP poll that showed that only 27 percent of Americans even want him to run again," she continued. "So at a time right now, when the Biden presidency is frankly on life support, the economy is struggling, we have this high inflation, this is a moment for Republicans, to get through midterms, keep him around through midterms because he is a monster fundraiser, but then have a come to Jesus moment and say what can Donald Trump do that Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, Tim Scott, Nikki Haley can't do? All of them that don't have this cloud of January 6th and having led an insurrection on their back."
She later added, "I have a theory and we will see it play out, Republicans are going to keep him around through 2022 because he will be helpful in winning back House seats, getting back the House majority. He is monster fundraiser, he does have a death-grip on the party, but I'm going to be curious to see if there starts to be a break after 2022 because, if I'm reading the tea leaves, how can this guy beat Joe Biden? I don't see him being more popular."
