Solomon reported that more than 50 senior national security Democrats have confirmed that the laptop was verified when the released their Oct. 19, 2020 letter claiming that the release of its contents was part of a Russian information plot.
Mainstream media quoted the letter, saying the laptop was part of a “disinformation campaign,” when the actual wording of the letter cited an “information campaign.” This small, but important, difference led Solomon to believe that security leaders knew the laptop was real but was being exploited by the Russians, instead of it being invented by them.
“Disinformation means you create a false reality and then you spread it,” Solomon explained in the interview. “Information means you take something that’s real, but then you try to use it to Russia’s advantage.”
“They said it was used as a Russian. It had the hallmarks of Russian information, by the way. They had no actionable intelligence. This was just a guess on their part.”
Now even mainstream news outlets such as The New York Times have admitted that the laptop is legitimate, though they have not admitted that the contents is damaging or that the censoring of this story may have had an effect on the 2020 election.
Solomon continued, saying time has proven him and other reporters who have kept tabs on this story right.
“We get called conspiracy theorists, we get all these things, and then history has evolved. Hunter Biden did do things wrong, whether they’re criminal or not, the U.S. attorney will—but he’s been under investigation—at the time I and Peter Schweizer and others were being attacked,” he said.
“Everything we were saying was not only true, it was actually worse than we were saying.”
