Jim Jordan has wasted no time in undertaking investigations into liberals and their lies and illegal activity. He has now sent out letters to a dozen Intel agents who signed the bogus letter claiming information revealed from Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian misinformation. These letters ask the twelve people to appear before his committee and answer questions about the letter. Jordan wants to prove what everybody already knows. This letter was an attempt to save the Biden campaign in 2020.
Biden has sent letters to CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Rick Ledgett, John McLaughlin, Michael Morell, Nicholas Rasmussen, Russell Travers, Michael Vickers, Nick Shapiro, Jeremy Bash, Thomas Fingar, and Michael Hayden. Many of these people were high-ranking officials in the CIA.
“As we begin the 118th Congress, we write again to reiterate our outstanding request and ask that you immediately comply in full.”
The letter makes no mention of subpoenas, but it is a safe bet that if they do not voluntarily comply with Jordan’s request, the next step will be subpoenas. Jordan has already issued subpoenas to top Biden officials who were involved in attacking parents who disapproved of books with gay sexual content including pictures and the teaching of CRT. They have been ordered to appear on March 1st.
The letter from the 51 former intelligence officials came out in the days leading up to the 2020 presidential election. The purpose of the letter was to discredit all of the information that had been gleaned from Hunter’s laptop. They claimed that the leaked emails from the laptop “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.” They knew the laptop was real. If they didn’t, then they were certainly not able to do their previous jobs as intelligence officers.
POLITICO, which first reported the letter, went further than what the letter said by publishing a headline that said the former intelligence officials were claiming the story was “Russian disinfo.” Then-candidate Joe Biden, Hunter’s father, used the letter to cast doubt on the laptop story during one of his debates with then-President Donald Trump.
The laptop, which allegedly was abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop before the FBI obtained it, contains details about Hunter Biden’s personal life and financial affairs. The president’s son is now under federal investigation, including over his foreign business dealings and tax affairs, though the existence of that years-long inquiry was not revealed to the public until after the 2020 election. Hunter Biden has said he expects to be cleared of wrongdoing.
Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee initially demanded in April 2022 materials from the 51 intelligence veterans that identify anyone they contacted about drafting and promoting the letter.
Since the laptop story emerged more than two years ago, many of its contents have been analyzed and shown to be authentic.
Douglas Wise, a former Defense Intelligence Agency deputy director, revealed last month that he and other signers of the letter thought that the information was legitimate.
“All of us figured that a significant portion of that content had to be real to make any Russian disinformation credible.”
