The mainstream media was forced to concede this week that the emails recovered on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop were authentic after initially dismissing the embarrassing material on it as “Russian misinformation.” People were not allowed to discuss the laptop’s contents or post news articles about it on Twitter or other social media sites throughout the campaign in the weeks leading up to the election. Democrats like Jen Psaki and Adam Schiff have claimed that Russia engineered the entire affair to harm Vice President Biden and his administration.
A list of the 50 intelligence officials who signed a letter claiming that the material on Hunter Biden’s laptop was false was released by Nick Short of the Claremont Institute yesterday.
The list includes notable intelligence leaders like James Clapper, Leon Panetta, and John Brennan.
We are highly worried that the Russian government had a significant role in this case, the letter said, underlining several points of the account that showed the Kremlin’s involvement in the investigation.
If we are right, they said, Russia is seeking to sway Americans’ voting decisions in this election, and we firmly believe that Americans need to be informed of this.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, one of the letter’s signatories, was accused of lying to Congress in 2013 when he claimed that the National Security Agency (NSA) does not gather information on people of the United States. While hundreds of senators voiced their anger with Trump for lying to Congress about his tax returns, only one asked for his resignation.
Former CIA Director John Brennan, who was charged with listening in on lawmakers as they were looking into the CIA’s use of torture, was one of the signatories of the letter.
When the New York Post questioned Clapper about his response to the New York Times’ admission that the information on Hunter’s laptop was real, he simply agreed to the letter without saying anything.
