CIA Contractors Colluded to Discredit Hunter's Laptop, Report Claims

Several ex-intelligence officials, some still on CIA contracts, falsely claimed Hunter Biden's laptop was Russian disinformation right before the 2020 election to aid Joe Biden politically.

According to Daily Mail, the Republicans are now demanding repercussions for these officials, citing election interference and politicization of intelligence agencies.

Some ex-intelligence officials, still paid by the CIA on a contract basis, falsely claimed Hunter Biden's laptop was Russian disinformation. Michael Morell, former deputy director of the CIA, organized the letter after a call from now-Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Officials Knew About the Letter

Morell aimed to provide Biden with a "talking point" during the 2020 election. High-ranking CIA officials knew about the letter before its release, and some raised concerns about its political implications. The memo discredited damning evidence found on Hunter Biden's laptop, aiding Joe Biden during debates and media appearances.

The infamous memo was signed by 51 intelligence officials in the lead-up to the 2020 election. Republicans are now seeking punishment for these 51 intelligence officials, suggesting they be fired, prosecuted, or jailed.

Laptop Found and Verified

Hunter Biden's laptop was found at a Delaware tech repair shop and later verified by the FBI. Hunter Biden’s laptop came back into the spotlight during his federal gun trial, where he was found guilty of three felonies. Michael Morell and David Buckley were among the key figures who signed the letter.

Greg Steube and Kat Cammack, both Florida Republicans, have called for consequences against these ex-intelligence officials. Speaker Mike Johnson and other Republicans have accused high-ranking officials, including Antony Blinken, of corrupt involvement in covering up the laptop’s authenticity.

Republicans Demand Repercussions

Several Republicans, including Ted Cruz and Ron Johnson, have labeled the letter signing as election interference. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., told DailyMail.com:

I think one of their clearances needs to be revoked. I think there needs to be an investigation into every single one of them. We know that the intel community never operates in absolutes and the fact that we had 51 come forward and try to put forward a narrative that this was disinformation, misinformation when everyone knew full well that it wasn't, that it was very real. That speaks volumes about the politicization and the weaponization of the DOJ and the IC (intelligence community).

"There has to be repercussions otherwise, the verified credibility of the IC is on the line if there is not a single thing that is done to those Intel officers," Cammack added. Rep. Greg Steube also told DailyMail.com:

That's what the American people are frustrated and tired about, is they see all of these people doing all these horrible things, using the deep state to go after Trump and Russia-gate and Russia collusion. It was all a lie. And none of these people have been held accountable. So if any of them are still working in government, they should all lose their jobs and then be sued if there's some type of cause that you can go after them for.

Calls for Accountability

"As if Sec. Blinken's involvement in the Hunter Biden laptop cover-up wasn't bad enough, [Weaponization of the Federal Government Subcommittee] has now found that the CIA was involved as well," Speaker Mike Johnson posted on X. "This corruption from our top govt & intel officials is chilling," Johnson added.

"In Hunter Biden's trial, the Biden DOJ admitted that Hunter's laptop was real all along," Sen. Ted Cruz posted on X. "Every single one of the 51 former intelligence officials who signed the letter saying that the laptop was Russian disinformation should be held accountable."

"51 former intelligence officials signed a public letter claiming Hunter Biden's laptop had 'all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.' That letter interfered with the 2020 election more than anything Russia could have hoped to achieve," Sen. Ron Johnson posted on X.

In summary, the controversy over the Hunter Biden laptop continues to stir political debate, with Republicans calling for accountability among former intelligence officials who signed a memo dismissing the laptop as Russian disinformation. This incident underscores concerns over the potential politicization of intelligence agencies and its impact on the integrity of election processes.
