Now that there’s a consensus on Hunter Biden’s laptop —it’s real, and it’s incriminating— GOP members of the House Judiciary Committee want answers from the 51 intelligence experts that dismissed it as Russian disinformation. This mysterious cadre provided the mainstream media and their beloved Dems with a talking point that would be parroted ad nauseam for weeks:

“This laptop has the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

Except it didn’t and it wasn’t. Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop is the real McCoy. And GOP members of the House Judiciary Committee did what committees do: wrote a letter. The GOP is demanding the experts come forward and clear the air about some disinformation of their own.

“All 19 Republicans on the panel signed a letter to the intelligence community stalwarts demanding records on their claim that the laptop story had ‘all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation’ — a statement which helped the Biden campaign discourage pre-election coverage of emails linking Joe Biden to his son’s business ventures in China and Ukraine,” the New York Post reports.

“We now know from subsequent reporting that the New York Post’s article about Hunter Biden was not, as you and your co-signatories alleged, part of a ‘Russian information operation’,” the GOP letter says. “This belated verification of the Post’s reporting raises fresh questions about the public statement you signed in October 2020.”

“The letter signed by Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Mike Johnson (R-La.) and others demands that the ex-intelligence operatives — including former CIA directors John Brennan, Leon Panetta and Michael Hayden, as well as ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper — ‘identify all people with whom you communicated about the inception, drafting, editing, signing, publishing, or promotion’ of the statement and provide ‘all documents and communications referring or relating to” that effort,” the Post says.

The letter continues with the GOP members accusing the “experts” of wagging the dog.

“At best, the public statement was a reckless attempt by you and your co-signatories to erroneously opine about purported election interference. At worse—and more likely—the public statement was a deliberate and coordinated effort to mislead the American people about information relevant to the 2020 presidential election by invoking your national security experience to falsely suggest that the allegations about Hunter Biden were not based in fact.”

“These intelligence officials have a choice: either cooperate now, or face the consequences when Republicans take the majority next year,” a top GOP insider says.

With Biden underwater and Dems having very little to run on, a Republican majority is looking likely after midterms. Get your popcorn ready —there’s going to be a showdown.
