In a 2020 election, fifty-one intelligence officials collaborated with the SMM to eliminate the doubt about Hunter Biden’s laptop stories! These officials stated that the narrative about Hunter’s laptop represented nothing more than a Russian smear campaign.
The 51 former intelligence officials were desperate to get Biden elected president.

SO, one year later, even after the Deep State sabotage has been shown again to be a lie, they refuse to talk about how they undermined an election.
The officials, the CNN pundit, and professional fabricator James Clapper signed a letter that stated the laptop “has the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
By their administration, they didn’t have proof. “We do not know if the emails . . . are genuine or not,” the letter said. They’re just “suspicious.”
Why is this so? It’s so because it would hurt Biden’s campaign.
On October 19, 2020, the Post published its first story, and neither Joe nor Hunter had denied the story.
Though the letter was shared as being signed by people who worked for presidents of both parties, most of them were Democrats.
Politico picked up the letter and shared a post titled, “Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say.” You can find that story online still.
The headline was shared and tweeted by many Democrats, including the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki; the tweet is proven false.
Twitter banned The New York Post a few days prior to the event, and the rationale was that it was “hacked material,” which it wasn’t. Twitter doesn’t have proof to think that way.
A Facebook official stated it wasn’t going to allow the sharing of The Post’s story until it was fact-checked. This check never happened!
Big Tech, the former government, and the MSM allied to push the fake news story and Help Hunter Biden.
No one actually proved that The New York Post’s story was wrong. Media outlets showed up at the doorsteps of the laptop repairman, and he confirmed that.
After the election, Hunter confessed that the laptop was his. One year ago Politico reporter confirmed that the laptop’s materials were real.
The coup de grace: The Times stated it’s ‘authenticated” material from the laptop.
Twitter and Facebook censor information based on political bias, and Congress doesn’t react. Many of the letter signers are “experts” by the media.
Do the officials who attempted to change the 2020 election feel any regret for their actions?
The Post reached the signers, and most of them refused to answer the question.
Here are all the 51-signers per The New York Post:
Mike Hayden, former CIA director, now analyst for CNN: Didn’t respond.

Nothing I have seen really changes my opinion. I can’t tell you what part is real and what part is fake, but the thesis still stands for me, that it was a media influence hit job.”
