OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED: FBI and CIA Played Significant Roles in the Historic 2020 Election Lie that Hunter Biden’s Laptop Was Russian Propaganda

The House Judiciary Committee disclosed on Tuesday that CIA contractors collaborated with the Biden campaign in 2020 to undermine the credibility of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

In October 2020, just days before the presidential election, 51 former intelligence officials signed and released a letter alleging without evidence that the contents of Hunter Biden’s controversial laptop bore “all the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign.”

This falsehood was known to be untrue by all involved. Despite this, the mainstream media still propagated the story and even used it during the debate to criticize President Trump.

On Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee released these details:

● High ranking CIA officials, up to and including then-CIA Director Gina Haspel, were made aware of the Hunter Biden statement prior to its approval and publication. Because several former senior intelligence officials signed the statement, the PCRB sent the draft statement to the CIA’s then-Chief Operating Officer (COO) Andrew Makridis, who said he subsequently informed then-Director Haspel or thenDeputy Director Vaughn Frederick Bishop that the statement would be published soon. Senior CIA leadership had an opportunity at that time to slow down the CIA’s process for reviewing publication submissions and ensure that such an extraordinary statement was properly vetted.

● Some of the statement’s signatories, including Michael Morell, were on active contract with the CIA at the time of the Hunter Biden statement’s publication. Throughout the course of the Committees’ investigation, the signatories claimed to not have had access to any classified information when asserting that the allegations surrounding Hunter Biden’s laptop had “all the hallmarks” of Russian disinformation.

However, at the time of the statement’s publication, at least two signatories—Morell and former CIA Inspector General David Buckley—were on the CIA’s payroll as contractors. Due to purported operational concerns, the CIA declined to declassify the entire universe of signatories who were on active contract. In addition, some signatories to the Hunter Biden statement also had special “Green Card” access to the CIA at the time of the statement’s publication, allowing them to gain entry to secure CIA facilities.

● After publication of the Hunter Biden statement, CIA employees internally expressed concern about the statement’s politicized content, acknowledging it was not “helpful to the Agency in the long run.” At least one employee found it “[i]nteresting to see what was submitted and approved” when discussing media talking points that the statement’s co author, former Senior Intelligence Service Officer Marc Polymeropoulos, submitted related to the statement.

When discussing Polymeropoulos’s talking points, another CIA official stated, “It appears [Polymeropoulos] is actively involved in a pro-Biden campaign and may be disclosing classified information in his efforts.” The CIA’s internal review board, known as the Prepublication Classification Review Board (PCRB), determined that Polymeropoulos’s talking points contained classified information that had to be removed prior to publication.

“The new information included in this report, based on new testimony and declassified documents, shows the potential dangers of a politicized intelligence community. In the waning days before the 2020 presidential election, 51 intelligence community officials rushed to draft and release a statement using their official titles, presumably to convey access to specialized information unavailable to other Americans.

“The statement was conceived following a conversation with a senior Biden campaign official and designed explicitly to provide talking points to the Biden campaign to discredit politically damaging allegations. Some of the signatories of the statement were on the CIA payroll at the time as contractors and others had special access to CIA facilities. Even Michael Morell—before the Committees learned of his contract with the CIA—acknowledged, “It’s inappropriate for a currently serving staff officer or contractor to be involved in the political process,” the House Judiciary Committee said.

However, the CIA wasn’t the only entity deceiving and manipulating the American public during the 2020 election.

In June 2023, the House Ways and Means Committee released their interview with Gary Shapley, Jr., conducted on May 26, 2023.

In the report, the committee included this key detail:

In October 2019, the FBI became aware that a repair shop had a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden and that the laptop might contain evidence of a crime. The FBI verified its authenticity in November of 2019 by matching the device number against Hunter Biden’s Apple iCloud ID.

In November 2019, the FBI and intelligence community knew that Hunter Biden’s laptop was genuine and contained evidence of hundreds of international crimes involving his father, Joe Biden.

They knew this in November 2019 but Chris Wray and the FBI said NOTHING!

The laptop was real, and EVERY SINGLE INTEL ‘EXPERT’ who signed that letter knew it was real!

These 60 agents should be identified, subpoenaed, and prosecuted for spreading such a blatant political lie to influence a presidential election.
