Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee provided PoliticusUSA with the raw testimony in which Mike Morell testifies that he has never been asked before, Sec. Blink to write a letter through Hunter Biden’s laptop:
In a statement to PoliticusUSA, a spokesman for the House Judiciary Democrats said:
In order to smear Minister Blinken and make a three-year-old tabloid story sensationalist, Jim Jordan has published selected excerpts of a transcribed interview. To be clear, no part of this interview shows Tony Blinken or any other Biden campaign representative asking Mike Morell to write a letter through Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Mr. Morell is a former CIA Deputy Director and a decorated veteran of the intelligence community. For years he has advised leaders of both parties – including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who presented Mr. Morell with a Director’s Award for Distinguished Service.
At no time during his interview did Mr. Morell testify that Secretary Blinken instructed or asked him to write letters. Instead, Mr. Morell testified that Mr. Blinken sought his advice, as did many others. In response to questions posed by Chairman Jordan’s own lawyers, he testified that Mr. Blinken “in no way instructed, suggested or implied” that he write a letter through Hunter Biden’s laptop. Mr. Blinken – at that time a private individual – did not try to get hold of the letter indirectly. Mr. Morell testified that Mr. Blinken did not imply that the Biden campaign “could use some help with this” or suggested that Mr. Morell “cook something up” for the campaign to use.
Instead of focusing on issues that actually affect American families, Chairman Jordan is pulling off another political ploy. This time, he’s using taxpayers’ money to trace the origins of a letter written by private individuals expressing their private opinions, which references a story invented by Rudy Giuliani in the final days of the Trump administration.
Jim Jordan is trying to get over the fact that he cannot connect Hunter Biden’s laptop to President Biden and that files on the laptop have been modified.
The letter from 50 former national intelligence officials warning that the laptop bears the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign is what Jordan and House Republicans are trying to discredit.
Jim Jordan’s investigation into Hunter Biden is failing badly, so he and his fellow Republicans are trying to fabricate evidence to justify their investigation into President Biden, but the Democrats caught them in the act and delivered the truth to the nation when Hunter Biden of the GOP Investigations go nowhere.
