In a recent interim report released by House Republicans, it has come to light that a former senior CIA official testified to Congress about an intriguing revelation regarding former deputy CIA Director Michael Morell.

The report states that Morell had informed the official that someone associated with the “Biden world” had approached him regarding a letter suggesting that the Hunter Biden laptop story published by the New York Post was Russian disinformation.

This disclosure contradicts Morell’s own testimony on the matter.

The former CIA Acting Chief of Operations for Europe and Eurasia, Marc Polymeropoulos, who assisted Morell in drafting the letter, confirmed this revelation during his testimony before congressional investigators.

According to the report, Polymeropoulos stated that Morell had mentioned to him that someone from the “Biden world” had inquired about writing such a letter.

However, Morell did not disclose the identity of the person or provide any further details. This statement appears to contradict Morell’s previous testimony, adding to the complexity of the situation.

Morell had previously testified that Secretary of State Antony Blinken, then a senior Biden campaign adviser, had engaged him in a discussion about the New York Post’s story and whether it could be attributed to Russian disinformation.

Morell claimed that this interaction prompted him to write the letter, although Blinken did not explicitly ask him to do so.

Ultimately, more than 50 former intelligence and national security officials signed the letter, which Joe Biden referenced during a debate with then-President Donald Trump to undermine the credibility of the laptop story.

The report released by House Republicans reveals that Blinken was the only person Morell spoke to before reaching out to Polymeropoulos for assistance in drafting the letter.

In his testimony, Morell explained that after receiving a call from Blinken, his first course of action was to conduct research.

He admitted that he had not read the New York Post article until that point, but he promptly familiarized himself with its contents by reading it and conducting internet searches. Only after completing his research and concluding his communication with Blinken did Morell contact Polymeropoulos.

Morell sought Polymeropoulos’ assistance because of his background as a former “acting chief of operations for the part of the world that covers Russia.” Morell valued Polymeropoulos’ expertise in Russian disinformation and his deep understanding of the events surrounding the 2016 election.

Polymeropoulos disclosed that Morell initially reached out to him and subsequently invited him to his house for a meeting. Polymeropoulos believed that after their discussion, he sent Morell a backgrounder that later formed the basis of the letter.

The report indicates that the background document was dated October 17, 2020, the same day as their meeting. There is no evidence to suggest that Morell engaged with any other individuals from the Biden campaign apart from Blinken before collaborating with Polymeropoulos on the letter.

The report, released by the House Judiciary Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government and Intelligence Committee, focuses on investigating the role of the Biden campaign in discrediting the Hunter Biden laptop story. This story was deemed unfavorable to Joe Biden in the lead-up to the 2020 election and was subsequently suppressed and censored by mainstream media outlets and social media platforms.

Furthermore, the report reveals that following the drafting of the letter, Morell and former deputy Nick Shapiro collaborated with the Biden campaign to ensure its placement in major publications. The report even shows evidence of the Biden campaign expressing gratitude to Morell for his contribution.

As investigations continue, the committees involved are diligently examining the extent of the Biden campaign’s involvement in the letter and its subsequent use to discredit the Hunter Biden laptop story.

The controversy surrounding this issue highlights the complexities surrounding information dissemination and the potential influence on public opinion in the modern media landscape.
