Intel Officials On CIA Payroll Linked To Hunter Biden Laptop Letter

Some of the 51 intelligence officials who dismissed the New York Post’s story about Hunter Biden’s laptop as having “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation” during the 2020 presidential campaign were on the CIA’s payroll as contractors and had special access to CIA facilities. This disclosure indicates that these signatories were likely earning taxpayer dollars from their intelligence community work while simultaneously collaborating with Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

A joint interim staff report released Tuesday by the House Judiciary Committee, its Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence detailed how CIA contractors colluded with the Biden campaign to mislead American voters. The report revealed an internal CIA email from October 20, 2020, showing that some signatories were current CIA contractors.

The highest officials within the CIA were aware of the statement before its publication. Then-CIA Chief Operating Officer Andrew Makridis testified in April that he informed then-Director Gina Haspel or then-Deputy Director Vaughn Frederick Bishop about its impending release, suggesting senior CIA leadership had ample opportunity to assess the statement’s validity. The report indicated that Makridis’ office signaled approval of the statement, departing from standard protocols.

“The 51 former intelligence officials’ Hunter Biden statement was a blatant political operation from the start,” the report stated. The statement originated from a call between top Biden campaign official Antony Blinken and former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell. The goal was to provide Joe Biden with talking points for his debate against Donald Trump.

At the time of the statement’s publication, signatories Morell and former CIA Inspector General David Buckley were on the CIA’s payroll as contractors. Internal CIA documents showed that Buckley and Morell had active contracts, with Buckley even holding a green badge for secure CIA facility access.

Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) highlighted the risks posed by a weaponized federal government, stating, “The report underscores the risks posed by a weaponized federal government.”

Although the Hatch Act bars most CIA employees from engaging in partisan political activities, it is less clear about contractors. Makridis testified that it would be inappropriate for a currently serving staff officer or contractor to be involved in the political process. He also stated that if he were the CIA director at the time, he would have consulted the office of general counsel before signing off on the statement.
