The Mainstream Media guardians of the Democratic ticket, completely ignored the Hunter Biden bombshells that the New York Post released last week.
Until they couldn't.
Now they have gone into crisis management and have been peddling the familiar Russia! Russia! Russia! narratives which claim the materials released against the Bidens is part of some foreign election interference operation.
Shifty Adam Schiff and other Democrat politicians are helping to lead the charge on that front.
But the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, has now thrown a wet blank on that disinformation campaign.
From The Hill:
Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) are publicly battling over the emails allegedly recovered from a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, accusing one another of politicizing intelligence.
The two are battling over a controversial report published by the New York Post last week concerning a laptop and emails allegedly sent by Biden, the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
The story alleged that then-Vice President Biden participated in a meeting with a top adviser to Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, where his son sat on the board at the time, prompting immediate attacks from President Trump and his allies that Biden is corrupt.
Schiff in a Friday interview with CNN said the “smear” campaign against Biden and his ties to Ukraine originated as part of a Russian disinformation plot more than a year ago, but he did not explicitly link the Kremlin efforts to the Post story.
Ratcliffe, however, sought to claim that Schiff was remarking that the Post story was a result of Russian disinformation, which he says is not supported by intelligence.
“It’s funny that some of the people that complained the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing intelligence and unfortunately in this case, it is Adam Schiff,” Ratcliffe told Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo, adding that Schiff claimed “Hunter Biden’s laptop and e-mails on it are part of some Russian disinformation campaign.”
"Let me be clear: The intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we shared no intelligence with Chairman Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign,” Ratcliffe added."
Here's more of what DNI Ratcliffe had to say during an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business, as reported by Breitbart News:
“So Maria, it is funny that some of the people that complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing intelligence,” he said. He went on:
And, unfortunately, in this case, it is Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who, as you pointed out, said on Friday the intelligence community believes that Hunter Biden’s laptop and the emails on it are part of some Russian disinformation campaign. Let me be clear: The intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. We have shared no intelligence with chairman Adam Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign.
“It’s simply not true,” Ratcliffe said, continuing:
And this is exactly what I said I would stop when I became the director of National Intelligence, and that’s people using the intelligence community to leverage some political narrative. And in this case, apparently, chairman Schiff wants anything against his preferred political candidate to be deemed as “not real” and as using the intelligence community or attempting to use the intelligence community to say there’s nothing to see here. Don’t drag the intelligence community into this. Hunter Biden’s laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign, and I think it’s clear that the American people know that.
We have reached an incredibly ominous moment in American History.
The Media will report Ad Nauseum on fabricated conspiracies framing Donald Trump and refuse to acknowlege real scandals involving Democrats.
And now the word of the nation's Director of National Intelligence is being undermined by partisan politicians, and THEY are the one's being given the benefit of the doubt.
DC needs to be cleanup up or cleaned out.
