Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said that Hunter Biden’s laptop “is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign.” He told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo Monday that claims from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, among other Democrats, were not supported by any real evidence.

We’ve all seen this before and it’s how the Democrats operate. They love to accuse others of what they are doing. Schiff is the King on Capitol Hill of this very manipulative move and he loves doing it publicly.

‘Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we have shared no intelligence with Adam Schiff, or any member of Congress’

Schiff’s push to spread the rumor came shortly after The New York Post published it’s explosive stories on Hunter Biden’s laptop, which contained his alleged emails connecting his father, then Vice President Joe Biden, to his work as board member of Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Holdings. Hunter Biden was being paid roughly $50,000 a month to sit on the board despite having no background in energy. The email raises serious questions as to his father’s meeting with an executive during the time President Obama charged him to oversee Ukrainian policy.

Ratcliffe told Bartiromo on ‘Mornings with Maria’ that it’s “funny that some of the people who complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence…Unfortunately, it is Adam Schiff who said the intelligence community believes the Hunter Biden laptop and emails on it are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.”

“Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we have shared no intelligence with Adam Schiff, or any member of Congress,” he added. He said Schiff’s claims are “simply not true.”

On Sunday, Mexican prosecutors said they have charged seven individuals in the infamous “Fast and Furious” weapons trafficking scandal. Among those charged in the more than decade old case  were former top police official Genaro Garcia Luna and former drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.

“Fast and Furious” was and investigation in which agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sold guns to criminals with the intention of tracking the weapons.

The plan went horribly wrong, and the agency lost most of the guns, including two guns that were found at the scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry who was murdered In December of 2010.

Terry’s murder exposed the bungled investigation. Fox News reports Mexico says drug gangs and former officials also participated in or failed to stop the weapons trafficking. Garcia Luna was arrested in Texas in 2019 for allegedly protecting a drug gang.

Luna was security chief in President Felipe Calderon’s 2006-2012 administration, and was also tasked with being the leader of the government’s fight against organized crime. Also charged was former Federal Police commander Luis Cardenas Palomino, who was the right-hand man of Garcia Luna.

Palomino was already arrested on charges of torture and U.S. prosecutors have separately accused him of accepting millions in bribes from the Sinaloa cartel, reports Fox News. Drug lord ‘El Chapo’ was also charged with weapons trafficking, but is already serving a life sentence in Colorado.
