Election Interference: Ex-CIA Official Testifies That Biden Campaign Was Behind Letter From Intel Officials Claiming Hunter’s Laptop Was Russian Disinformation
Former acting CIA Director Mike Morrell admitted the Biden presidential campaign was the impetus to create the infamous letter signed by 51 intelligence officials indicating Hunter Biden’s laptop amounted to ‘Russian disinformation’.
Morrell, in a transcribed interview with the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee, testified that he received a call from now-Secretary of State Antony Blinken discussing the laptop story.
Blinken, who was serving at the time as a senior advisor to the Biden campaign, also emailed Morrell a story published by USA Today claiming the FBI was examining whether the Hunter Biden laptop was part of a “disinformation campaign.”
Prior to the communication with Blinken, Morrell testified that “I did not” have any intent to write the public statement that would lead to a massive media blackout of the story.
“His call triggered that intent in you?” a committee interviewer asked.
“It did, yes,” Morrell replied.

Biden Campaign Colluded With Intel Officials to Spread Actual Disinformation on the Hunter Biden Laptop
It’s not an overstatement to suggest that the Biden campaign’s efforts to collude with a former acting CIA Director to use the intel community to spread disinformation regarding the Hunter Biden laptop amount to election interference.
Russia could never have dreamed of being so effective in an effort to install Joe Biden as President and create chaos in America.
“It is apparent that the Biden campaign played an active role in the origins of the public statement, which had the effect of helping to suppress the Hunter Biden story and preventing American citizens from making a fully informed decision during the 2020 presidential election,” the Judiciary Committee states.

In addition to the testimony implicating the sitting Secretary of State in an effort to meddle in a presidential election, Morrell also admitted to receiving a call from Steve Ricchetti, Chairman of the Biden campaign shortly after the statement had been issued, thanking him for his efforts.
He also contends that the Biden campaign helped to strategize about the public release of the statement.
Morrell’s goal, according to his own testimony, “was to help then-Vice President Biden in the debate and to assist him in winning the election.”
This was the actual insurrection. The actual coup. The Biden campaign colluded with the media to hide pertinent election information from the American people as a means to gain power.
The Biden campaign literally and undeniably committed election interference. This is not hyperbole.
The current Secretary of State for a Democratic presidency has engaged in one of the most undemocratic acts in U.S. history. The CIA colluded with the Biden campaign to rig an… https://t.co/YRMtzr5DxS

Committee Goes After Blinken
Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and Michael Turner, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, sent a letter to Blinken requesting “all documents and communications” regarding the public statement on the Hunter Biden laptop.
In that statement, signed by 51 intelligence officials and published just weeks before the election, the authors argued that the laptop story had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
“If we are right, this is Russia trying to influence how Americans vote in this election, and we believe strongly that Americans need to be aware of this,” they said of the New York Post’s bombshell story at the time.
In reality, those intel officials and now – clearly – the Biden campaign, were actually the ones “trying to influence how Americans vote” in that election.
They used their titles and national security credentials to lend weight to the story and suggest they had access to specialized information unavailable to other Americans.

“This concerted effort to minimize and suppress public dissemination of the serious allegations about the Biden family was a grave disservice to all American citizens’ informed participation in our democracy,” Jordan and Turner write.
Publication of the transcribed interview serves as confirmation that Representative Matt Gaetz was correct earlier this week when, as The Political Insider reported, he claimed to have knowledge that the letter dismissing Hunter Biden’s laptop as ‘Russian disinformation’ was a targeted attack on the 2020 presidential election.
“We can prove that and much more,” Gaetz said in an interview with Real America’s Voice. “Everything I am telling you I can fully corroborate with records and testimony.”

Polling shortly after the 2020 election demonstrates that one in six voters would have avoided voting for President Biden if the media had fairly covered news stories about him, his family, and/or Donald Trump.
