The GOP-led House has given them plenty to investigate, but they continue to ignore Biden family corruption and threats to our national security due to a range of 'business' deals involving the debased Hunter Biden, his uncle Jim Biden, and even the president himself.
"Take the bombshell this week from former acting CIA Director Mike Morell," New York Post columnist and author Miranda Devine noted in a piece this week.
Sources in the House Judiciary Committee have confirmed that in a sworn interview, Morell admitted that it was Joe Biden's presidential campaign that triggered the controversial letter in which Morell and 50 other former intelligence officials falsely asserted that material from Hunter Biden's laptop, published by The Post prior to the 2020 election, was Russian disinformation.
Tony Blinken, who currently serves as secretary of state, was the foreign affairs adviser for the Biden campaign and had called Michael Morell in October 2020 to claim with urgency that the laptop was a Russian plant, Devine writes.
“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 using the imprimatur of their security clearances to pave the way for Joe Biden’s presidency,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) told Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast this week.
Morell, who is now a contributor for CBS and was recently deposed by the House Judiciary Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, said during his deposition that after receiving the call from Blinken, he solicited signatures from 50 other former intelligence officials for the letter in question.
The letter, published by POLITICO on Oct. 19, 2020, two weeks before the election, falsely stated that emails from the laptop that were first published by The Post had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation … Moscow [will] pull out the stops to do anything possible to help Trump win and/or to weaken Biden should he win.”
The letter in question was then utilized by candidate Joe Biden three days later during his final debate against President Donald Trump to deflect accusations regarding his involvement in his family's international influence-peddling operation, which had amassed millions of dollars from China and Ukraine while he was serving as Barack Obama's vice president, Devine noted.
“Morell wanted to be Joe Biden’s CIA director, got a phone call from Tony Blinken, who was representing the Biden campaign, saying, ‘Gee, Mike, doesn’t this Hunter Biden laptop look like Russian disinformation?’?” said Gaetz during his "War Room" interview.
“Morell testifies that then triggers him to be the ringleader of an enterprise to go to others and to put together a letter for the specific purpose of use by Joe Biden in the presidential debate … We can prove that and much more," he added.
The committee has also reportedly interviewed a former adviser to ex-CIA Director John Brennan and former Obama White House member Nick Shapiro. They allegedly collaborated with Morell in drafting the letter and subsequently delivered it to POLITICO, Devine wrote.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has announced plans to release a report within the next few weeks detailing the origins of the "Dirty 51" letter. The report is expected to reveal how the letter represented corrupt interference in the 2020 presidential election.
"Meanwhile, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) this week revealed that newly accessed financial records from the Treasury Department show 'the Biden family enterprise is centered on Joe Biden’s political career and connections, and it has generated an exorbitant amount of money for the Biden family,'" Devine noted, quoting the congressman.
Then, she adds, there is an IRS whistleblower, "a career IRS criminal supervisory special agent who has been investigating Hunter Biden for three years" who "came forward with claims that federal prosecutors are preventing tax charges from being brought against the president’s son."
Mark Lytle, the whistleblower's attorney, claimed in a letter to Jordan and eight other House and Senate committee chairpersons that “preferential treatment and politics [are] improperly infecting decisions and protocols that would normally be followed by career law enforcement professionals in similar circumstances if the subject were not politically connected.”
In addition, the IRS whistleblower allegedly has evidence that will “contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee” -- reportedly to be none other than Attorney General Merrick Garland.
