Intelligence officer says Biden and Blinken were behind a letter discrediting Hunter Biden story


The fire crackling under the House of Representatives’ Hunter Biden laptop investigation saw more logs thrown on the embers this week.

Michael Morell, a former Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, exposed the involvement of U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the Biden campaign in suppressing a news story about the now-president’s wayward son Hunter Biden.

Morell testified in House Judiciary Committee that that Blinken, who was a senior advisor to the Biden campaign during the 2020 election, was responsible for organizing a letter signed by 51 U.S. intelligence officials that discredited the Hunter Biden laptop story.

The letter falsely implied that the reporting by the New York Post about Hunter Biden was Russian disinformation. It was used to silence the story until after the election. Recent revelations show that federal law enforcement pressured social media companies to censor the story based on this false claim by officials and former officials.

Twitter, under the old management system of Jack Dorsey, cancelled the Twitter account of the New York Post after it broke the story about what was on the laptop and how it linked to Joe Biden.

Mainstream media continues to run cover for the government fingerprints all over Twitter in the 2020 election. NPR calls the decision to block the Post a “short-lived decision.”

Recently, NPR divorced itself from the Twitter platform after a label was put on its account advising the public that NPR is essentially state-sponsored news.

This is not the only committee investigating the Biden-Hunter Biden connection. Earlier this year, a House Oversight Committee hearing went on for more than six hours, with newly-in-power Republicans accusing the social media company of colluding with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Biden campaign to censor the Hunter Biden story.

During that hearing, Yoel Roth, the former executive of trust and safety at Twitter, denied any government involvement in the decision to censor the New York Post. The White House called that hearing “a bizarre political stunt,” and said that Republicans were trying to re-litigate the 2020 election.

This week’s revelations show a different picture.

In response to this new testimony, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan and and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner, both of Ohio, are demanding documents and communications from Secretary of State Blinken.

The revelation raises serious concerns about the integrity of the Biden campaign and the actions of high-ranking officials deep within the U.S. government intelligence circles to suppress information during a critical election period.

On Oct. 14, 2020, the New York Post published a report detailing how Hunter Biden used the position and influence of his father, now-President Joe Biden, for personal gain with the apparent awareness of President Biden.

The article reported on several emails found on a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden that he had abandoned in a Delaware computer shop. The contents of the emails cast doubt on President Biden’s previous denials of speaking to his son about his international business dealings.

Within five days of the article being published, on Oct. 19, 2020, 51 former intelligence officials released a public statement attempting to discredit the contents of the New York Post’s reporting about Hunter Biden, stating that the story “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.” 

Legacy news organizations immediately ran with the statement, with Politico publishing a story with the conclusive headline, “Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former officials say.” 

During the final presidential debate on October 22, then-Vice President Biden cited the public statement to rebut President Trump’s criticism of the Biden family business dealings.

The two committees recently conducted a transcribed interview with Morell, a former Deputy Director of the CIA and one of the 51 signatories of the public statement.

In the interview, Morell testified that on or around Oct. 17, 2020, Blinken reached out to him to discuss the Hunter Biden laptop story. According to Morell, it set in motion events that led to the issuance of the public statement.  

That same day, Oct. 17, Blinken emailed Morell an article published in USA Today alleging that the FBI was examining whether the Hunter Biden laptop was part of a “disinformation campaign.”  The very bottom of the email he sent to Morell included the signature block of Andrew Bates, then-director of rapid response for the Biden campaign.

Morell testified that his communication with Blinken was one of a few communications he had with the Biden campaign, explaining that he also received a call from Steve Ricchetti, Chairman of the Biden campaign, following the October 22 debate to thank him for writing the statement. 

Morell also explained that the Biden campaign helped to strategize about the public release of the statement. Morell further explained that one of his two goals in releasing the statement was to help then-Vice President Biden in the debate and to assist him in winning the election, Jordan’s office said.

“Based on Morell’s testimony, it is apparent that the Biden campaign played an active role in the origins of the public statement, which had the effect of helping to suppress the Hunter Biden story and preventing American citizens from making a fully informed decision during the 2020 presidential election,” the committee report said. “Although the statement’s signatories have an unquestioned right to free speech and free association—which we do not dispute—their reference to their national security credentials lent weight to the story and suggested access to specialized information unavailable to other Americans. This concerted effort to minimize and suppress public dissemination of the serious allegations about the Biden family was a grave disservice to all American citizens’ informed participation in our democracy.”

  1. Imagine.

    A corrupt man leading a corrupt, radical government manipulated the system to cover his backside.

    Who would have thought it?

  2. The guy in the pictures is actually a look alike Russian actor named Sergy Volomonov who was paid from a Trump campaign slush fund set up by Rudi Giuliani and Mike Lindell.

    • Jay, can you please explain the Chi- Com $ transfers to the Biden family for us, another Russian Disinformation plot?
      You drink lots of Kool- Aid?

    • Loosen the tin foil hat. It’s cutting off blood to your brain.

      Russian actor? That’s almost clever.

    • Although I have no proof, it has all the hallmarks of a Trump-Russia collusion operation. I just thought the MRAK readers should know. And I do not now, nor have I ever, held a security clearance, or made six figures with the deep state.

  3. And nothing will happen. No jail time no fine no accountability. Just get forgotten like Alec Baldwin. Waste of time and money. We need some real accountability and punishment.

  4. We knew it was true in 2019 before the election. Treason and felony interference of a presidential election. With the current soros and democrat backed judicial system and the corrupted fbi, cia, and doj involved, nothing will happen to those guilty individuals, especially the biden crime family…. backed

    • Not to worry Marlin, Trump will pay for his treason and felony interference. He will look great in orange.

      • Just so the biden crime family and those involved (CIA, FBI. DOJ, etc.) also go to prison for treason and felony interference. No one is above the law, right???

  5. How else do you defend a piece of crap?
    Massive drugs, kicked-out of military academy, gets hookers pregnant, shacks up with dead brother’s widow, child pervert, collects millions of $$ for influence peddling with our enemies.
    Rides around Air Force One with executive level privilege.
    Trump’s sons are just superb compared to this sleazy, low-life product of Joe Biden.
    Purely disgusting.

  6. While this does say something about Biden, I find what it says about the U.S. intelligence community and the 51 senior intelligence officials who signed it far more troubling.

    • Bob, just think of it as a deep State “paycheck protection plan” for people who have to keep up their 20 acre horse ranches in Virgina.

  7. I pray that ALL there low down dirty tricks will be exposed and SOON before so much damage is done it can not be undone. And we all say AMEN!

  8. So this story says an intelligence officer is behind a letter discrediting the HB story? Morell is a former intelligence officer, who has not served in any capacity since 2013. I am confused, how is he an intelligence officer? He was passed over by Biden for CIA Director. Doesn’t this reek of a man scorned? This story also says 51 intelligence officers signed a letter and then later says they were all former intelligence officers. Which is it? When were they last intelligence officers and what was their knowledge base? Further confusion.

    Also, how can Trump criticize any family dealings by any family given the rampant bank and tax fraud in his family business? Where is the story/outrage about the Trump son in law being bailed out by Qatar for what was considered the worst real estate deal in NY history? This while serving in the Trump administration. Not to mention the hedge fund deal with the Saudi’s even though son in law has absolutely no experience running a hedge fund.

    Finally, other than demonstrating HB is a pervert and degenerate, what evidence of a crime was found on the laptop? Seems minor compared to Trump’s 40 plus allegations of sexual assault which Trump seeming admitted to on an Access Hollywood hot mic.

    • Guess you missed biden’s 10% kickback and the millions of dollars for biden’s family. How about “the big guy” on video bragging about withholding a billion dollars of US Taxpayers’ money from the Ukraine until the Ukrainian prosecutor that’s after hunter is fired. I guess you also believe hunter is a budding Rembrandt since he gets $500,000 to $1,000,000 for his artwork, not for being the son of a corrupt president. There is plenty of damning evidence to be seen unless one is a democrat or an ostrich…

    • You feel better now? Your brain washed from to much CNN. What nothing to say about your lying brain dead boy Biden?

    • Didn’t I see this on the Brady Bunch?
      “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!” when Jan needed someone to blame.

      Substitute Trump for Marcia, you get the same result.

  9. Blinken did a far better job obfuscating Hunter’s “activities” during that election than he’s done as Secretary of State.

    Mayorkas, Garland, Blinken, and Nod… Time to send them all packing.

  10. Now is it clear to everyone the feds do control the proven fake news media who control the Sheep to get the results THEY want? Or are these hearings just more Russian disinformation? I asked my lefty liberal coworker what he thought about Joe and Hunters money grifting from China and Ukraine and he said those rumors turned out to be nothing compared to the money Trumps children collected from foreign countries from all around the world. Puzzled I replied that I had never heard that before and He just shrugged his shoulders and said “I guess it all depends on which news channel you watch”. That response reinforced what I had been thinking for years but who am I to say think or prove whose opinion is right? He formed his opinion based on what he chose to believe and I did the same based on my choice what to see and hear. I cant prove the Earth isnt flat or we did not land on the moon instead of the Haleakala crater where they trained for it so I guess we are stuck with what the Feds want us to believe.
    So My next question is who will the Feds pick for the next Presidential Selection? Hunter? Kamela? AOC? Michelle Obama? Its anybodys guess but I am betting the farm it WILL be the Feds horse who wins in the next race! This is what protecting democracy Biden is always yelling about and all those MAGA fools are trying to undermine. I am seriously searching for another neutral country to live in peace as the America I grew up in cant survive this level of corruption!

  11. When I’m banging hookers and smoking crack I always sweep for cameras first. It’s the way God intended.
