(Headline USA) House Republicans sent a letter this week to a dozen former intelligence officials who signed the infamous letter dismissing Hunter Biden’s laptop as “Russian disinformation,” warning them that they need to share information regarding what they knew about the infamous laptop.
“The Judiciary Committee made a prior request to you for documents and information about the public statement you signed in October 2020 that falsely implied the New York Post’s reporting about Hunter Biden was the product of Russian disinformation,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, wrote in the letter. “This request, to include a request for a transcribed interview before the Committees, remains outstanding. These documents and your testimony are necessary to further our oversight.”
Jordan’s previous letter asked the intelligence officials to “identify all people with whom you communicated about the inception, drafting, editing, signing, publishing, or promotion” of the Politico letter dismissing Biden’s laptop, and directed them to “produce all documents and communications referring or relating to” the public statement.
In the Politico letter, the former intelligence officials, including the likes of James Clapper and John Brennan, claimed that they were deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role” in the Hunter Biden laptop story.
“If we are right,” they said, “this is Russia trying to influence how Americans vote in this election.”
The laptop has been proven to be authentic by multiple media outlets, as well as by the DOJ and FBI. Even Hunter Biden’s legal team admitted the laptop belonged to him in a recent complaint against Rudy Giuliani and others who first published its contents.
The complaint says the offenders “violated various statutes, including by making public restricted private information; accessing and disseminating stolen property; and making false statements to Congress.”
