Retired CIA director Mike Morell recently testified before the House Judiciary Committee that he coordinated a letter from former intelligence chiefs falsely saying the Hunter Biden laptop scandal was Russia disinformation. Morell admitted that he worked to get the laptop dismissed as disinformation because he wanted to help Joe Biden win the presidential election.

Morell testified that Secretary of State Antony Blinken – a senior member of Biden’s campaign at the time – asked him to assist in their efforts to discredit the laptop that had been left in a Delaware computer repair shop.

Until this call, Blinken had no intention of making any attempts to discredit the laptop and its contents.

After doing “a little bit” of his own research, he wrote a letter that suggested the laptop was a smear campaign against then-presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Blinken allegedly asked Morell to reach out to former intelligence chiefs to add their name to a letter telling the public that the laptop was not legitimate. In the end, the letter was signed by 51 former intelligence officers and four former CIA directors.

The seemingly credible letter picked up a lot of attention in the liberal mainstream media, fueling the narrative that the laptop story was Russian disinformation.

The letter was used to discredit a report by the New York Post about Hunter’s laptop and was even used during an October debate between Biden and Donald Trump, a tool that Biden used to defend himself against damning claims about his son.

After this debate, Steven Ricchetti, the chairman of the Biden campaign, reached out to him in a phone call and thanked him for putting out the statement.

On Thursday, Chairman Jim Jordan and Michael Turner issued a statement that accused Morell and the other involved intelligence chiefs of a “concerted effort to minimize and suppress” information that could have been harmful to the Biden campaign.

They also send a letter to Blinken saying, “We are examining the origins of the infamous public statement signed by 51 former intelligence officials that falsely discredited a New York Post story regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop as supposed Russia disinformation.”

“Subsequent reporting revealed that the New York Post story was not, as the public statement claimed and then-Vice President Biden parroted, part of a ‘Russian disinformation operation.’ This revelation nearly two years after the fact, however, was little consolation.”

Jordan and Turner have requested that Blinken hand over all documents and communications relating to the letter he asked Morell to write, as well as anyone else involved in its “inception, drafting, editing, signing, publishing, or promotion”
