Rep. Jordan: Ex-CIA Chief Confirmed ‘Spies Who Lie’ Conspiracy in Closed Testimony

'Trying to give the campaign, particularly during the debate on Thursday, a talking point to push back on Trump on this issue...'

(Headline USA) Former CIA Director John Brennan confirmed during a closed-door congressional hearing this week that a letter signed by 51 current and former intelligence officials dismissing the Hunter Biden laptop story as “Russian disinformation” was “all political,” according to Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.

“[Brennan] sat for a four-hour interview and he further confirmed that this thing was all political,” Jordan told Fox News on Thursday.

Jordan cited an email proving intelligence officials hoped to use the letter to give then-candidate Joe Biden a “talking point” against former President Donald Trump.

“And he presented it as if it was all organic — just shazam! It just happened out of the goodness of all these individuals’ hearts. They wanted to do this as if there was no political motivation whatsoever, and we know that was not accurate,” Jordan explained.

An email between Brennan and former CIA acting director Mike Morrell uncovered this month shows Morrell asking Brennan for his signature.

“Can I add your name to this list? Will be adding Leon, Sue Gordon, Jeh Johnson, George, Lisa Monaco , and Mike Rogers today. And working on adding Dan Coats, Mike Rogers (HPSCI), and Tom Bossert … Trying to give the campaign, particularly during the debate on Thursday, a talking point to push back on Trump on this issue,” Morrell wrote.

House Republicans have also uncovered evidence that allegedly links the CIA to the infamous letter. In a report, titled “The Hunter Biden Statement: How Senior Intelligence Community Officials and the Biden Campaign Worked to Mislead American Voters,” Republicans alleged that multiple sitting government officials “inserted themselves into the thick of the [2020] presidential campaign” by soliciting signatures for the letter.

The committees have “evidence that an employee affiliated with the CIA may have assisted in obtaining signatories for the statement,” the report stated.

One of the letter’s signatories, former CIA analyst David Cariens, allegedly disclosed to Congress “that a CIA employee affiliated with the agency’s Prepublication Classification Review Board (“PCRB”) informed him of the existence of the statement and asked if he would sign it,” the report said.
