The investigation into Hunter Biden took a turn after a career intelligence official reportedly testified that Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the Biden campaign were behind a letter from 51 U.S. intelligence officials discrediting the Hunter Biden laptop prior to the 2020 election.
House Judiciary Chair Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, released a letter saying that former acting CIA director Michael J. Morell testified that he organized the letter at the behest of Blinken.
The claims of that letter were later debunked, but at the time they were used to silence the story until after the election. Recent reports have also shown that federal law enforcement pressured social media companies to censor the story, which they did after being told it was Russian disinformation, a claim that has also now been debunked.
Jordan and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, have sent a letter to Blinken demanding documents, communications and more related to the coordination after the New York Post broke the story just weeks before the election.
