Former CIA and Intelligence directors to testify before House GOP

The Washington Examiner reports that Former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper are scheduled to testify, this month, before the Republican-led House of Representatives. 

Significantly, this comes after the recent revelations about the Hunter Biden laptop coverup, which took place prior to the 2020 presidential election between then-candidate Joe Biden and then-President Donald Trump.

Brennan and Clapper are two of the U.S. intelligence officials who signed on to the letter that falsely claimed that the New York Post's Hunter Biden laptop bombshell was merely "Russian disinformation."

With that in mind, Hunter Biden and the Biden family, in general, have to have some concerns about what Brennan and Clapper might tell House Republicans.

The details

The Examiner reports:

The news of the transcribed interviews with Brennan and Clapper [has been] confirmed to the Washington Examiner by a source familiar with the sweeping investigation by the GOP-led House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees.

It will be Brennan who will appear first before the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government on May 11.

Then, on May 17, Clapper will do the same.

The backstory

Following the Post's Hunter Biden laptop story - in which the Post reported that the laptop contained evidence of political corruption in the Biden family - 51 U.S. intelligence officials - including Brennan and Clapper - signed on to a letter claiming that the Post's story was "Russian disinformation."

This claim was used as a justification by the mainstream and Big Tech to suppress the Post's reporting - despite the fact that U.S. intelligence, at the time, knew that the Post's story was not "Russian disinformation." The letter was also used by the Biden 2020 presidential campaign to dismiss the Post's story.

Biden, of course, would go on to win the 2020 election. But, polls have consistently shown that there is a good chance that the election outcome would have been different had the American public known the truth - namely, that the Post's story was not "Russian disinformation," but factual.

The latest revelation

Mike Morell, the former acting CIA director of the Obama administration, has recently testified before Congress. And, in that testimony, Morell claimed that now-U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken played an instrumental role in producing the letter that was signed by the 51 U.S. intelligence officials.

It has to be remembered that Blinken, at the time of the letter, was one of Biden's top 2020 campaign officials.

Blinken has since denied Morell's claim, saying, "It wasn't my idea, didn't ask for it, didn't solicit it."

The question now is what, if anything, Brennan and Clapper will add to this narrative. We'll see.
