Surely you remember the letter that was signed by all those intel officials claiming that the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation.
One of those intel officials is now admitting that he knew that the laptop was real.
And even worse? He has no regrets about saying it wasn’t.
PJ Media reports:
Ex-Intel Official Admits He Knew Hunter Laptop Was Real, and That’s Not the Worst Part
Last summer, then-House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said that House Republicans would demand answers from the 51 former intelligence agency officials who publicly disputed the Hunter Biden laptop story as Russian disinformation in a letter. The media widely cited that letter to discredit the laptop’s content before the 2020 election.
Now that the House Republicans have regained the majority, at least one official is admitting that he knew the laptop was genuine.
Douglas Wise, a former Defense Intelligence Agency deputy director, told The Australian he knew a “significant portion” of the recovered Hunter Biden laptop files “had to be real.”
“All of us figured that a significant portion of that content had to be real to make any Russian disinformation credible,” Wise told the paper…
Not once in the letter did they concede that any of the contents of the laptop had to be genuine. But the worst part is, despite this deception by Wise and the other intelligence officials, he feels no regret for misleading the public.
“I don’t regret signing it because the context is important,” he said. “Remember Giuliani had just been in Ukraine trying to dig up evidence on the Bidens and he met with a known Russian intelligence official. Russians or even ill-intended conservative elements could have planted stuff in there.”
Shouldn’t there be consequences for this?

No fear of reprisal.

Don’t be surprised if something like this happens again.
Now they know they can get away with it.
