(Congress Report) – John Brennan, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, has come out and admitted that the now infamous letter signed by a total of 51 former intelligence officials falsely stating that Hunter Biden’s laptop was nothing more than Russian disinformation was “political” in nature. Well, no duh. The vast majority of us with more than two brain cells to rub together already knew that. The biggest mistake progressives keep repeating over and over is thinking that Americans are too stupid to see through their ruse.
According to Rachel Bunyan of the Daily Mail, Brennan, who served as the chief of the CIA during Obama’s administration, confessed the truth during his four-hour testimony delivered before the House Judiciary Committee, which was held behind closed doors a week ago. The deposition of the former CIA director comes just before former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is due to provide his own testimony on May 17.
“Both Brennan and Clapper signed a letter by 51 former intelligence officials who claimed Hunter’s laptop had ‘all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation,'” Bunyan wrote. “An email shows Brennan agreeing to have his name added to the letter of signatories by the then acting CIA Director Mike Morell.”
“Hunter’s laptop included explicit photos of the troubled Hunter Biden naked, with prostitutes, and taking drugs, as well as multiple emails and texts between the 53-year-old and his father. It comes as a bombshell Republican report has claimed that the CIA was actively involved in getting the 51 signatures on the letter, which the House Judiciary Committee allege was part of a ‘political operation to help elect’ Joe Biden in November 2022,” Bunyan continued.
It says that an employee of the CIA “may have helped in the effort to solicit signatures for the statement” and levels accusations at former Deputy CIA director and Acting CIA Director Mike Morell, along with members of the Biden campaign of working to push through approval of the letter, all to benefit the campaign just days before the election.
“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 House investigative report notes,” the report detailed. “The CIA employee allegedly ‘asked’ Cariens if he would sign the statement, to which he agreed.”
“The Committees have requested additional material from the CIA, which has ignored the request to date,” the report goes on to say.
This all comes to light after Morell came out and admitted during testimony given to the House Judiciary Committee last month that he was asked by Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, who, at that time, served as a senior member of Biden’s campaign, to help coordinate the letter. Morell then revealed he was asked by Blinken to help get former intelligence chiefs to agree that the laptop looked like a smear campaign against then-candidate Joe Biden.
“On October 19, 2020, Morell allegedly sent the CIA the final version of the letter to the Prepublication Classification Review for review and called it a ‘rush job’ so it could be approved. One email seen by [the] New York Post shows Morell asking Brennan to add his name to the signatories on the letter. Brennan emails back with his intention to sign the letter. On October 18, emails included in the report also showed Clapper emailing Morrell his intention to sign onto the letter,” the Daily Mail noted.
I can’t understate how big of a story this is. It’s proof that the CIA actively worked to help the Biden campaign. Otherwise known as election interference.

He then provided an important key phrase to include in the letter, saying, “I have one editorial suggestion for the letter: I think it would strengthen the verbiage if you say this has all the classic earmarks of a Soviet/Russian information operation rather than the ‘feel’ of a Russian operation.”
Morell responded by saying that the suggestion Clapper made was a “good one.”
The letter was then signed by a total of 51 former intelligence officials, which included himself, along with four other former CIA directors, which includes John Brennan and Leon Panetta.
Five days after the New York Post article was published, Politico published the letter.
Take a wild guess at what the headline said.
“Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former officials say.”
The letter then made the allegation that the Post’s story bore all of the classic signs of a “Russian information operation.” Keep in mind that several different media outlets have now confirmed the contents of the laptop and the machine itself belonged to Hunter Biden. It was real the whole time and it’s likely these folks who penned and signed the letter knew that. But to them, creating a misinformation campaign of their own was worth it if it helped get Joe Biden elected president, even if that wasn’t really what the American people wanted.
Joe Biden himself made use of the letter during a presidential debate held in October where he stated it was his belief that the reporting concerning the laptop was the work of the Russians.
The next question is what is going to be done to hold those responsible for cooking up the letter and interfering in an election accountable for their actions. Will anything be done? What’s the point of knowing all of this if no legal action is taken? Let’s hope that eventually the individuals who wrote and signed this letter face some serious consequences for what they did.

My question is…Is the House Judiciary Committee going to do anything with this documented revelation? Everyone associated with the “Big Smear Campaign” needs to be prosecuted to the fullest! This includes Obama and his administration, Hillary and her scoundrels, OBiden and his outlaws (and relatives), and those involved in the CIA and the FBI! Justice MUST be SERVED!
Thay are all crooked for helping Biden and I hope all get punished?
Do something!!!!! Prosecute to the nth degree. Is this not treasonous behavior?? The people are sick of this.
Brennan talked about having two brain cells. He obviously has less than 2. He definitely should be held responsible for all he did wrong and lying to the world.
This MUST be prosecuted. All those who signed the letter are guilty of election interference at the least and possibly treason the way it appears.
Removal from their jobs at the CIA should be the least amount of punishment in my opinion. This would help to clean up the CIA. Then follow up with FBI prosecutions for the same. These Bureaus are not to be political in nature and it MUST be ended and those involved must know that they will be punished for such blatantly political scandals.
