Bombshell # 2:  Dirty tricks & election interference
Morell also testified that one of the two reasons he helped put the letter together was to help Joe Biden defeat former President Donald Trump.

A former acting CIA director has admitted to Congress that he organized the letter that falsely portrayed Hunter Biden's laptop as Russian disinformation in an effort to influence the 2020 election in favor of Joe Biden and that he did so at the direction of current Secretary of State Antony Blinken, according to a letter released Thursday by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan.

Ex-top spy admits Hunter Biden laptop letter designed to influence 2020 election, Blinken involved | Just The News

The admission by Michael J. Morell is the second bombshell in the past two days to rock the Biden administration. Just like Dr Fauci, it was Morell who went out and rounded up a bunch of former intelligence officials to write a letter saying that the Hunter Laptop story had all the hallmarks of Russian disinformation. All done to beat Donald Trump.

Do some research.

The New York Post also wrote an article.

Or maybe you want to read it directly from the House Judiciary Committee.

You will have to give the lame stream media time to come to grips with the fact they were wrong again! That they are massive disinformation spreaders; and Democrat apologists. That Brandon is guilty of the very things they tried to accuse Trump of; and there is real proof- not some made up re-regurgitate evidence that leftist media ate up; will be a bitter pill for them to swallow.

Pretty common reaction when one is confronted with information that one does not want to hear or address, attempt to tear down the messenger instead.  It’s a defense tactic for the ideologically rigid when their worldview is challenged.  Happens here all the time.

The article is pretty funny. It accuses Solomon of having sources on a congressional committee. The horror! A reporting having sources.

It also  attacks him for running a story by people before publication, which we know liberal reporters like the NYT's Maggie Haberman did  with Hillary Clinton in the run up to 2016.

If this is fake (it’s not) , you can score major points by proving that Morrell’s testimony is being misrepresented. Solomon even provides the primary sources he’s relying on.

But you didn’t do that. 

instead you retreat to your little closed feedback system where you ignore what your left sources don’t tell you, thus avoiding having to deal with the uncomfortable reality that your party lied to you, again.

It’s just another manifestation of how hypocritical progressives are. They constantly complain about Fox News now covering stories that damage Fox News,  but have no problem when their partisan media ignores stories that hurts democrats.  Their argument is no different than claiming Fox News didn’t settle its lawsuit because Fox News didn’t cover  it. They are Much more bubble wrapped and protected from bad news than the most devoted fox viewer.
