Congressman Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., on Tuesday called for accountability for government officials who signed a letter claiming first son Hunter Biden's laptop was "Russian disinformation."

"At some point, somebody's got to hold them accountable," Burchett said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "I would like to know the chain of command. I would like to know who each and every one of them talked to. I would like to know what notes they were looking at. I'd like to know who had their ear during all of this. And if they actually viewed the laptop."

In 2020, 51 officials signed a letter saying that Hunter Biden's "laptop from hell" was Russian disinformation. The infamous laptop story that was originally perceived by media outlets as "Russian disinformation" was resurrected during Hunter's gun trial.

FBI Agent Erika Jensen testified in the trial that the laptop was real, according to NBC News. She said that information on the laptop contained evidence about the gun purchase.

"This is a serious matter that was used for election interference," Burchett said. "And this is clearly another case of that and it's happened time and time again."

He added that the "big boys" need to be "called into question."
