MAGA Rep. Gaetz Drops Bombshell: We Can Prove Collusion With the Letter From 51 Intelligence Officials About Hunter’s Laptop Being ‘Russian Disinformation’

Must read

Representative Matt Gaetz contends the GOP-led House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government can prove that the infamous letter signed by 51 intelligence officials indicating Hunter Biden’s laptop amounted to ‘Russian disinformation’ was a targeted attack on the 2020 presidential election.

Gaetz made the claim – long suspected amongst supporters of former President Donald Trump – in an interview with Steve Bannon on “Real America’s Voice.”

The Florida Republican told Bannon that former acting CIA Director Mike Morrell was seeking to reprise that role under President Biden following the 2020 election.

Morrell reportedly got a call from Biden’s campaign suggesting the Hunter Biden laptop – which they knew at the time was legitimately his laptop – was ‘Russian disinformation’.

That call, Gaetz contends, was a catalyst for Morrell to organize the letter from dozens of intelligence officials he had contact with. In fact, he said, the former acting CIA Director testified on the matter.

“You guys can prove that?” Bannon asked.

“We can prove that and much more,” Gaetz replied. “Everything I am telling you I can fully corroborate with records and testimony.”

Recap: The Letter From 51 Intelligence Officials

In a letter signed by 51 intelligence officials published just weeks before the election, the authors argued that the Hunter Biden 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.

“If we are right” amounted to a widespread effort by Democrats, the legacy media, and social media alike to squash the story.

None of those involved in the letter ever apologized for spreading the actual misinformation. A couple of officials actually doubled down.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper even had the balls to declare the letter had been “distorted” – an effort to rewrite history over two years after the fact.

1. Clapper & co. should start with “sorry, we were wrong.”

2. @NatashaBertrand did overstate the letter’s claim that the laptop was Russian disinfo. BUT

3. That’s what they wanted! They politicized their NatSec credentials to sway an election with lies.https://t.co/lfTIejbTWz

Actual ‘Collusion’ to Change the Course of the Election

Gaetz contends that the subcommittee on the weaponization of government can prove that the letter was a coordinated effort to interfere in the 2020 presidential election.

“Topline: We can prove that the entire purpose of this letter at the outset was to influence a presidential election with some of the most senior people who have ever been in our intelligence community… to pave the way for Joe Biden’s presidency,” he told Bannon.

Gatez tweeted a video of his interview and reiterated the claims.

“The [Weaponization] Subcommittee can prove that the entire purpose of this letter at the outset was to influence the 2020 presidential election with some of the most senior people who have ever been in our intelligence community – using the imprimatur of their security clearances to pave the way for Joe Biden’s presidency,” he wrote.

On October 19, 2020, 51 former U.S. intelligence officials signed a letter saying Hunter Biden’s emails on his recovered laptop were part of a “Russian information operation.”

The letter from the 51 intelligence officials exposed two major things –  that the intel community is hopelessly corrupt and poisoned by politics, and the media is also hopelessly corrupt, wholly state-run propaganda, and the enemy of the people.
