On October 19, 2020 in a document entitled “Public Statement on the Hunter Biden Emails”, more than 50 former US intel officials signed a public letter saying they believe the Hunter Biden story has ‘all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation’.
“Our view that the Russians are involved in the Hunter Biden email issue is consistent with two
other significant data points as well. According to the Washington Post, citing four sources,
“U.S. intelligence agencies warned the White House last year that Giuliani was the target of an
influence operaton by Russian intelligence.”
This letter is a textbook example of what is wrong with many of our former intelligence officers. On the professional front, they are incompetent, they exhibit poor analysis and reporting tradecraft, and show exceedingly poor technical skill. These individuals should never have worked in intelligence in the first place. Morally, the are completely bankrupt. Public statements like that subvert the truth and are meant to deceive the public.
As Larry Johnson wrote:
“Their inability to grasp basic facts and engage in simple reasoning perhaps explains why the Obama team abandoned American military and intelligence officials at Benghazi in September 2012 and why they considered ISIS as “a junior varsity” team. “
No, dear former intelligence officers, it wasn’t the imaginary Russians again! The repair shop that handled Hunter Biden’s equipment is confirmed to have received the three damaged laptops from Hunter Biden himself.
He signed on the work order on June 13th, came back a few days later and picked up two of the three laptops, and on the second visit he dropped off a data recovery USB drive for the third laptop. All the data circulating currently in the news is sourced to the third machine which he legally abandoned after 90.
His signature on the work order and on several other corporate documents including Burisma resolutions, credit cards, payment records, CEFC contracts, and other official documents all show a >95% match on his verified signature.
