On Saturday, Rep. Adam Schiff was interviewed by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and appeared to be on a game show where he won money by using the word “smear” or “Kremlin” in a sentence as many times as possible. Schiff certainly wasn’t the only one to call the New York Post a conduit for Russian disinformation by publishing those emails allegedly retrieved from Hunter Biden’s laptop, but on Monday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told the media the Hunter Biden laptop story was “not part of some Russian disinformation campaign” and that “we have shared no intelligence with Adam Schiff, or any member of Congress.”
Now Fox News’ Jake Gibson is reporting that the FBI and Justice Department concur that the emails aren’t part of a Russian disinformation campaign, and that the FBI has possession of the laptop (which we believe it’s had for a while).
ONE senior federal law enforcement official says:
1-The FBI and DOJ concur with DNI Ratcliffe's assessment that Hunter Biden's laptop and emails in question were not part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
2-The FBI DOES have possession of the Hunter Biden laptop in question.
