The following article, Ratcliffe Shuts Down Adam Schiff’s Claim That Hunter Biden Laptop Is Part Of Russian Disinformation Operation, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe has come out swinging on Rep. Adam Schiff and his claims that the current story surrounding Hunter Biden’s laptop, which contained numerous documents that suggest his father Joe Biden, while vice president, met with a member of the board for the company he worked for just before abusing his power to shut down an investigation into the company’s possible corruption, stating that this laptop is not at all a part of a Russian disinformation operation.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe argued that leading Democrats and many commentators and media figures have no evidence to back them up during a Monday morning interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business. He also confirmed that the FBI is investigating the laptop of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son but said that the intelligence community was not involved because it was not related to Russian disinformation.
“Let me be clear: The intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that, and we have shared no intelligence with Chairman Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign. It is simply not true,” Ratcliffe said Monday. “And this is exactly what I said I would stop when I became director of national intelligence, and that is people using the intelligence community to leverage some political narrative, and in this case, apparently Chairman Schiff wants anything against his preferred political candidate deemed as not real and is using or attempting to use the intelligence community to say there’s nothing to see here. Don’t drag the intelligence community into this. Hunter Biden’s laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign.”
The comments from Ratcliffe come just days after Adam “Shifty” Schiff repeatedly told CNN host Wolf Blitzer that the laptop is part of a disinformation plot from Russia. Pretty class Schiff, right? This man is obsessed with Russia.
“Well, we know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin. … Clearly, the origins of this whole smear are from the Kremlin, and the president is only happy to have Kremlin help in trying to amplify it,” Schiff said, going on to add, “I think we know who the driving force behind this smear has been all along, and it’s been the president and the Kremlin. The Kremlin has an obvious interest in denigrating Joe Biden. They want Donald Trump to win. … He’s been the gift that doesn’t stop giving for the Kremlin, so clearly, they want to help him, so they want to denigrate the vice president. The intelligence community has made that abundantly clear, and this particular smear, though, has also been acknowledged to come from the Kremlin, and there it is in the Oval Office, another wonderful propaganda coup for Vladimir Putin, seeing the president of the United States holding up a newspaper promoting Kremlin propaganda.”
Ratcliffe, a former Republican Party congressman who was a member of the intelligence panel, stated rather emphatically this was not true.
“This is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign. The intelligence community has not been involved with Hunter Biden’s laptop. Hunter Biden is a U.S. person, and he would be subject to any investigation regarding fraud, or corruption would be rightfully the jurisdiction of the FBI. So, the FBI has had possession of this, and what I can say without commenting on any investigation that they may have in corruption or fraud — is to say that their investigation does not center around Russian disinformation, and the intelligence community is playing no role with respect to that,” the Director of National Intelligence stated. “Adam Schiff saying that this is part of some Russian disinformation campaign and that the IC has assessed that or believes that is simply not true, so I appreciate the opportunity to be able to tell the American people that that is the case.”
It seems the Democrats are in panic mode over this discovery, which really seems to lend some serious credibility to the whole story. Obviously, if these documents are authentic, the picture the documents paint isn’t a good one for Joe Biden.
Do we really want a man in office with a track record of nepotism? It seems the evidence that Biden abused political favor to make himself rich and provide opportunities for his family, especially his son, is continuing to build up. This disqualifies him morally from serving in the Oval Office.
Let’s hope Americans wake up and smell the coffee about the real Joe Biden.
