Response From Intel Letter Signers Tells You Everything You Need to Know

I previously wrote about the intel letter that 51 former, U.S. intelligence officials signed trying to cast doubt on Hunter Biden’s laptop. In the letter, the officials said they believed it was Russian disinformation. This was despite also admitting they had no evidence to support the claim, and they had no idea whether it was real or not. That should have told any sentient being with one brain cell how much the letter was worth – that they were willing to put out such a letter based on nothing.


But the media and the Biden Administration then used the letter for all it was worth, claiming ‘experts’ said it was, in fact, Russian disinformation. Neither Joe nor Hunter Biden even denied it was real, yet Biden himself – who should have had cause to know it was real – responded “yes,” when he was asked if he thought it was Russian disinformation.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s false tweet is still up, too.

It was one thing to have liberal media push the narrative. But, you not only had that, but social media trying to suppress the story, with Twitter even suspending the NY Post for posting it and then blocking the URL from being shared. Not only was the truth suppressed, but this letter then fed a fake story based on no evidence that it was Russian disinformation, all shortly before the election.

It’s a much more concerning situation when the intelligence community – which is supposed to be neutral – inserts itself to interfere in the election as they did. The letter was pitched as “bipartisan,” although most of the people were Democrats, according to the NY Post. The “intel” people didn’t bother to confirm it with the computer repairman or the people who said yes, the emails were real, like Tony Bobulinski. They were pushing the ‘disinformation’ of which they complained.


The NY Post didn’t hold back in their contempt for what these people did, as well as noting that some of them are still in positions to influence things, like former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

This was the NY Post cover on Saturday:

There have been no consequences. Twitter and Facebook still censor information based on political bias, and Congress takes no action. Many of the letter signers continue to be used as “experts” by the media. Clapper, for instance, spent years on CNN calling Donald Trump a “Russian asset,” a lie invented and fed by political operatives of Hillary Clinton. He’s still there. Guess accuracy is not a condition of employment.

They asked each one of the people for a response now, given the NY Times now admitting the laptop was real.

Did any one of these people have a conscience or regret what they did? You can see all the answers at the NY Post link. They asked every one of them for a response. But to sum it up, not one of them did. Most didn’t even bother to respond, showing what little respect they have for Americans. They had plenty to say when they were spreading bull, but now they’re too cowardly to speak? Former CIA head John Brennan failed to respond.


A few, like Clapper, did respond. “Yes, I stand by the statement made AT THE TIME, and would call attention to its 5th paragraph,” Clapper said.

The fifth paragraph was where they admitted they had no evidence. “I think sounding such a cautionary note AT THE TIME was appropriate.” Cautionary note? The fifth paragraph showed how empty their claims were — why they should never have put the letter out, and how they threw away any credibility any of them may have had. Of course, Clapper never had any credibility to begin with.
