The New York Times has changed its narrative. They have admitted that the story regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop was indeed legitimate. “People familiar with the investigation said prosecutors had examined emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. [Devon] Archer and others about Burisma and other foreign business activity. Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop. The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation,” the Times reported.
Politico, NPR, The Washington Post, and many others attempted to gaslight this story as false. It’s challenging to forget that literally 50 members of the Intelligence Community released a public statement (published by Politico) that attempted to diagnose this story as, you guessed it, as “Russian disinformation.”
Signers of the letter include numerous Obama era appointees who eventually became mainstream media commentators, including former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA director John Brennan. Other signers among the 50 members of the IC included former Director of National Intelligence Michael Hayden and former CIA director Leon Panetta.
Richard Grenell, former acting Director of National Intelligence under President Donald Trump, tweeted on Thursday that a “Republican Senate MUST hold hearings with all 50 of the people who signed that letter 3 weeks before the 2020 campaign. They all said Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation. And they didn’t have a single piece of intel to suggest it.”
