It seems as if the CIA is trying to out-corrupt the FBI. Per Fox News, the CIA rounded up the signatures for that infamous Russian Disinformation letter about Hunter Biden’s laptop. And they made it a priority. They wanted to get the signatures fast because they wanted Trump to lose the election.
The House Judiciary Committee, its subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, and the House Intelligence Committee are expected to release a report this week titled: “The Hunter Biden Statement: How Senior Intelligence Community Officials and the Biden Campaign Worked to Mislead American Voters.”
Fox News Digital obtained an early copy of the report, stemming from the committee’s investigation into the origins of the October 2020 letter signed by 51 ex-national security officials, which claimed that Hunter’s laptop had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
Per Miranda Devine at the NY Post::
Morell told the CIA’s Prepublication Classification Review Board (PCRB) that he needed the letter approved as an unusual “rush job” that day, October 19, 2020, in an effort to provide then-candidate Joe Biden ammunition in the final presidential debate to discredit The Post’s report on the Biden emails which had been published five days earlier.
Gee, the CIA spending our tax dollars to try and skew the election to their favored candidate–who’d have thought it?
That news may be part of the information House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) promised he would release at a press conference tomorrow morning. Comer said the conference’s purpose “was to provide an update on the investigation into the Biden family’s influence peddling to enrich themselves and announce the next investigative actions.”
It is unknown if today’s news will substitute for or be added to what Comer initially promised.
According to one of the CIA agents who signed the letter, they got punked:
“One signer of the statement, former CIA analyst David Cariens, disclosed to the Committees 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 states.
Cariens told the committees that he had been working with the PCRB in October 2020 to review his memoir. Cariens said that during a call with a CIA employee about his memoir, the employee, separately, “asked” him if he would sign onto the letter.
“When the person in charge of reviewing the book called to say it was approved with no changes, I was told about the draft letter. The person asked me if I would be willing to sign,” Cariens told the committees. “After hearing the letter’s contents, and the qualifiers in it such as, ‘we want to emphasize that we do not know if the emails provided to the New York Post by President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement’…I agreed to sign.”
Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morrell was asked by the Oversight Committee there were “two intents” behind pushing the letter.
“One intent was to share our concern with the American people that the Russians were playing on this issue; and, two, it was to help Vice President Biden.”
When asked why he wanted to help Biden, Morell testified: “Because I wanted him to win the election.”
Folks, this action by the CIA reinforces the claim that there is a deep state trying to influence the way America is run. That is not the way a democratic republic is supposed to work.Tags: Commentary
