More than 50 former intelligence officials signed a letter casting doubt on the provenance of a New York Post story on the former vice president’s son.
More than 50 former senior intelligence officials have signed on to a letter outlining their belief that the recent disclosure of emails allegedly belonging to Joe Biden’s son “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
The letter, signed on Monday, centers around a batch of documents released by the New York Post last week that purport to tie the Democratic nominee to his son Hunter’s business dealings.
Under the banner headline “Biden Secret E-mails,” the Post reported it was given a copy of Hunter Biden’s laptop hard drive by President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who said he got it from a Mac shop owner in Delaware who also alerted the FBI.

WNU Editor: The laptop has been in the possession of the FBI when the Mac shop owner realized what was on it and notified the proper authorities. The FBI and the Justice Department do not believe this is a Russian disinformation campaign …. FBI in possession of Hunter Biden’s purported laptop, sources say (FOX News). There is a sign receipt by Hunter Biden for these laptops. Hunter Biden’s lawyer has inquired about these laptops. No one in the Biden campaign or the Bidens themselves have said these emails are false. Soem of the people who are mentioned in these emails have confirmed that it is them. There are numerous personal pictures of Hunter Binden on this laptop, and personal pictures of family gatherings that include the former Vice-President. So how can this be a Russian disinfo operation?
Update #1: Their letter is here …. Public Statement on the Hunter Biden Emails.
Update #2: The more I think about these 50 top intelligence officials, the more I shake my head. They admit they have no evidence, but are making their claims based on their feelings?!?!?!? Talk about promoting conspiracy theories. And when I look at the names of those who signed this letter, they are a who’s who of top intelligence officials who got the US to invade Iraq, helped to destroy Libya, supported US military involvement in these forever wars, supported and implemented spying programs on Americans, and were involved in literally every intel/foreign policy disaster of the past 20 years. The fact that many of these officials will probably play a key role in a Biden administration should he win makes me shudder even more. These are America’s best?!?!?
