Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are demanding answers from each of the 51 former intelligence officials who published unsubstantiated claims that reporting on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop was Russian disinformation.
The 19 GOP members are calling on the 51 officials to disclose who they communicated with during the drafting, editing, publishing, and promotion of the signed letter
, which was featured by Politico. The Republicans also requested “all documents and communications” related to the public statement that was used to throttle legitimate reporting.
“Your public statement served as a basis for Democrat operatives to try to delegitimize the scandalous allegations about Hunter Biden and the Biden family. … Your public statement was consistent with a broader effort to minimize and censor the New York Post’s reporting about Hunter Biden and the Biden family,” the representatives wrote
The legislators said this coordinated effort to stifle key information about a presidential candidate and his son, which had the potential to change
voters’ minds about then-candidate Biden shortly before he was elected, “was a grave disservice to American citizens’ informed participation in our democracy” and deserves a response.
