The 51 Ex-Spies Who Participated in the Disinformation Campaign Against America Refuse to Comment on Hunter and Joe Biden's Evident Corruption

"Deep State of Denial," Chuck Ross titles this article.

The former spies and Biden campaign aides who smeared Hunter Biden's laptop as Russian "disinformation" have remained silent following revelations that the FBI authenticated the computer nearly a year before it was released.

The veracity of an Oct. 19, 2020, letter claiming the content from Hunter Biden's laptop was Russian disinformation has all but crumbled in the wake of testimony from IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, raising questions about the judgment and motives of the letter's signatories. Notably, none of the organizers of the letter have defended their claim or commented on Shapley's testimony. The group includes former CIA deputy director Michael Morell, former CIA chief of staff Nick Shapiro, and White House spokesman Andrew Bates. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who spoke with Morell prior to the letter, has also not weighed in.


Morell and Shapiro have yet to weigh in on Shapley's claims. They did not respond to requests for comment. Bates, who served as the Biden campaign's rapid response director, did not respond to requests for comment. The State Department did not respond to a request for comment about Blinken's views of Shapley's testimony.

Morell organized the letter after a conversation with Blinken on Oct. 17, 2020, about a New York Post story that detailed some emails from Hunter Biden's laptop. Morell said Blinken sent him a USA Today article that said the FBI was investigating whether the release of Hunter Biden's emails was part of a Russian disinformation operation. The article, based on anonymous sources, did not reveal that the FBI had authenticated the laptop nearly a year before.


According to emails released by the House Judiciary Committee, Shapiro corresponded with Andrew Bates, the Biden aide, about efforts to publish the letter at the Washington Post, Associated Press, and Politico. "Here is what I gave them," Shapiro informed Bates in an Oct. 19, 2020, email about his correspondence with the news outlets. Politico ultimately published the letter under the headline, "Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say."

He circulated the letter among a tight-knit group of former CIA and intelligence community officers asking them to sign the document. Fifty others did, including former CIA Directors John Brennan and Michael Hayden. Jeremy Bash, an MSNBC pundit who serves on Biden's Intelligence Advisory Board, also signed the letter.
