In April National File reported on a Matt Gaetz interview in which Gaetz claimed the Weaponization Committee had proof that former Deputy and Acting Director of the CIA Mike Morell conspired with the Biden campaign to come up with the infamous letter that falsely stated Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation. On Wednesday, “The Interim Joint Staff Report of the Committee on the Judiciary Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence” proved everything Gaetz said in the April interview was correct.
During an April interview, Matt Gaetz said, “So people know who Mike Morell is former Deputy Director of the CIA, former Acting Director of the CIA, he wanted to be Joe Biden’s CIA Director got a phone call from Tony Blinken who was representing the Biden campaign saying ‘gee Mike doesn’t this Hunter Biden laptop look like Russian disinformation?’ Morell testifies that it triggers him to be the ring leader of an enterprise to put together a letter for the specific purpose of use of Joe Biden in the presidential debate. ”
On October 19, 2020, 51 former U.S. intelligence officials signed a letter saying Hunter Biden’s emails on his recovered laptop were part of a “Russian information operation.”

The newly released Weaponization Committee report reads almost word for word from Gaetz’s April interview, “Biden campaign advisor Antony Blinken’s outreach to former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell was the impetus for the public statement, which was intended to give the Biden campaign a “talking point” with which to respond to the Hunter Biden allegations.” read part of the report.
Another part of the report states the goal of the letter was to help Joe Biden get elected, “As Morell testified, a goal of writing a statement was to “help Vice President Biden” win the election. To achieve this goal, Morell wanted to affix as many signatures from former intelligence officials and employees as he could. For Morell, “The more former intelligence officers, the better.”
