The president said it revealed 'major corruption' and that it has to come out before the election.

His demand would appear to run smack into a Justice Department policy against taking actions that would interfere in an election – an issue that played out in 2016 in both the Hillary Clinton email probe and the then-unknown Russia probe.

'We've got to get the attorney general to act. He's got to act. And he's got to act fast. He's got to appoint somebody,' Trump said, asked about naming a special counsel on 'Fox & Friends.'

'This is major corruption and this has to be known about before the election,' Trump said in the call-in appearance on the network.

After issuing his demand to Barr, Trump immediately segued into to the elections, saying: 'And by the way, we're doing very well. We're going to win the election.'

On Monday, DNI John Ratcliffe said Hunter Biden's laptop 'is not part of some Russia disinformation campaign' as he blasted Rep. Adam Schiff for saying dirt on Trump's rival came from the Kremlin.

Hunter Biden's ex-partner says Joe Biden was involved in China deal

  Hunter Biden's ex-partner says Joe Biden was involved in China deal Tony Bobulinski told the New York Post on Wednesday that he personally witnessed Joe Biden discuss business deals with his son, Hunter, contradicting claims by the former vice president. 'I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business.‘I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.

Hunter Biden ' s emails, photos and (according to Rudy Giuliani) a sex tape featuring Hunter Biden and another woman has come out to the public in an interview with Fox News. To be sure, Fox News reported that whether Hunter Biden was indeed the owner of the laptop " has yet to be substantiated."

After the New York Post published shocking revelations that Hunter Biden leveraged Joe Biden ’ s position and influence to make money in Ukraine and a series of photos showing Hunter apparently in the throes of a drug binge, the computer shop owner who transferred the data to both the FBI and

He confirmed that the FBI have the laptop but did not comment on whether they are investigating its contents.

Ratcliffe, a Trump loyalist who assumed his post in May, accused Schiff of having 'politicized' intelligence – and responded to Schiff's claim about the mysterious laptop that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani says he obtained from a computer repair shop owner.

Its contents, which Giuliani provided to the New York Post, include emails purporting to show business ties between Joe Biden and his son, who in documents looks to be seeking to cash in on his father's former position as vice president in Ukraine and in China.

'It's funny that some of the people that complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence,' Ratcliffe told Fox Business on Monday.

'And unfortunately, it is Adam Schiff who said the intelligence community who as you pointed out on Friday said that the intelligence community believes the Hunter Biden laptop and emails on it are part of a Russian disinformation campaign,' he added.

Mysterious emails and convenient leaks: The Trump campaign’s Hunter Biden attacks, explained

  Mysterious emails and convenient leaks: The Trump campaign’s Hunter Biden attacks, explained All of a sudden, people have come out of the woodwork saying they have Hunter Biden emails.The contents of what was purportedly Hunter’s laptop were first provided to the New York Post last week by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani. A computer repair store owner claimed the laptop was left at his store, but questions have been raised about whether that story is accurate and whether all the information allegedly on the laptop is authentic.

The the FBI took the controversial Biden computer after a subpoena. Photos of a Delaware federal subpoena given to The Post show that both the computer and hard drive were seized by the FBI in December, after the shop’ s owner says he alerted the feds to their existence.

We also know that Hunter Biden has lived a troubled life. The Navy kicked him out for drug abuse. He fathered a child he denies and refuses to support. Did Joe Biden use his influence and power to hamstring FBI investigations of Hunter ? Therefore, did Hunter Biden feel he had no choice but to

'Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn't believe that, because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we have shared no intelligence with Chairman Schiff, or any member of Congress that Hunter Biden's laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign. It's simply not true.'

However he also said that the FBI, which is part of the intelligence community, was in possession of Hunter Biden's laptop.

'The FBI has had possession of this,' Ratcliffe said. 'Without commenting on any investigation that they may or may not have, their investigation is not centered around Russian disinformation and the intelligence community is not playing any role with respect to that.'

Giuliani provided the Post with a subpoena for the laptop dated December 19, 2019, an indication it has been in the bureau's possession for months.

Ratcliffe, who was a vocal defender of Trump during impeachment where Schiff played a key role, called out people using the Intel community to 'leverage some political narrative.'

Schiff told CNN that 'We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin.'

'That's been clear for well over a year now that they've been pushing this false narrative and the vice president and his son. ... pushing this Kremlin narrative is pretty breathtaking. ... and the president is only too happy to have Kremlin help to amplify it.'

The attacks come amid continued questions about the Hunter Biden emails that have roiled the campaign in its final weeks.

President Trump has seized on the information and has made it the focus of election rallies over the weekend, seeking to portray the Bidens as a 'crime family.'
