(VIDEO) The Shameful 51: By Name, by Job, by Gutless and Cowardly Response

Since the founding of the American republic, honorable men and women (some even gave their lives) to gather valuable intelligence information against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

But to borrow from English playwright William Congreve, “Hell hath no fury like a wannabe CIA director scorned.”

Enter Michael Morell, ex-CIA bureaucrat during the Obama years. He was the deputy director of the CIA from 2010 to 2013 and then twice as acting director, first for a period of time during 2011, then again from 2012 to 2013.

Morell was one of the “intelligence experts” who signed off right before the 2020 presidential election that the Hunter Biden “Laptop from Hell” was a mere Russian plant to wrongfully discredit Joe Biden and the entire Biden Crime Family.

As recently breaking news, Merill has just stated under oath, that the letter signed off on by all those intel “experts”… all of it was a lie just to get Biden elected.

I ask you to please read all of the rather short five paragraphs as posted just yesterday by the editorial board of the New York Post;

The dishonor of our intelligence community, and most of the media, is now complete.

It turns out the “51 intel experts” letter implying Hunter Biden’s 100% authentic laptop was a Russian fake, and the ensuing efforts to kill Post reporting on it, were the actual disinfo operation.

Veteran spook and former acting CIA Director Mike Morrell masterminded it, as he swore under oath, to “help Vice President Biden … because I wanted him to win the election” — at the behest of campaign flunky (now Secretary of State) Antony Blinken.

And Morell plainly also did it in hopes a victorious Biden would hand him the top CIA job.

Not only was there no intricate Russian plot, there was never any evidence suggesting one — only a Biden campaign conspiracy to bury the truth under a tissue of lies.

But let’s all jump on the ol’ wayback machine. Looks like the New York Post has been truthin’ it as far back as nearly a year ago.

Just me, but if I were an intel expert of repute, I sure wouldn’t sign-off on any letter until I knew 100 percent questioning the validity of anything. After all, my personal integrity would be literally on the line.

I guess integrity of a foreign word to at least 50 signatories.

From the New York Post of Mar. 18, 2022;

Do the officials who tried to flip the 2020 election feel any regret for their actions? The Post reached out to those who signed the letter. Most would not answer the question. A few doubled-down, including Clapper. No remorse. No shame. And no apologies:

  • Mike Hayden, former CIA director, now analyst for CNN: Didn’t respond.
  • Jim Clapper, former director of national intelligence, now CNN pundit: “Yes, I stand by the statement made AT THE TIME, and would call attention to its 5th paragraph. I think sounding such a cautionary note AT THE TIME was appropriate.”
  • Leon Panetta, former CIA director and defense secretary, now runs a public policy institute at California State University: Declined comment.
  • John Brennan, former CIA director, now analyst for NBC and MSNBC: Didn’t respond.

  • Russ Travers, former National Counterterrorism Center acting director: “The letter explicitly stated that we didn’t know if the emails were genuine, but that we were concerned about Russian disinformation efforts. I spent 25 years as a Soviet/Russian analyst. Given the context of what the Russians were doing at the time (and continue to do — Ukraine being just the latest example), I considered the cautionary warning to be prudent.”

I believe the Russians made a huge effort to alter the course of the election . . . The Russians are masters of blending truth and fiction and making something feel incredibly real when it’s not. Nothing I have seen really changes my opinion. I can’t tell you what part is real and what part is fake, but the thesis still stands for me, that it was a media influence hit job.”
