In 2020, President Joe Biden was accused of championing a letter from 51 former intelligence officials that had been debunked. The letter was allegedly initiated by Antony Blinken and aimed to discredit a New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop by falsely claiming it was Russian disinformation.
During a presidential debate, former President Donald Trump raised concerns about Biden’s potential compromise due to revelations in several Post stories that implicated Biden in his family’s business dealings, Breitbart News reported.
Biden responded by citing the support of 50 former national intelligence officials who had dismissed Trump’s accusations as baseless. He specifically mentioned that the letter was signed by four or five former heads of the CIA from both parties who had deemed Trump’s claims to be nonsense.
According to recent news, it appears that Biden’s defense during the 2020 debate was based on a scheme orchestrated by his presidential campaign to discredit the Post’s explosive story.
Former CIA Director Michael Morell testified that Antony Blinken, who was then a Biden campaign advisor, contacted a former CIA official to initiate the false statement that the Post’s story was “Russian disinformation.”
Apart from the purported Blinken scheme to discredit the story, Twitter made headlines for blocking users from sharing it and suspending the Post’s account, as reported by Breitbart News.
Facebook also suppressed the story, and several media figures echoed the sentiment that Hunter’s controversial laptop was nothing more than Russian propaganda.
