(FiveNation.com)- During an interview on Fox News on Monday, senior American intelligence official John Ratcliffe confirmed that comments made by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe about the emails discovered on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop were “100% correct.”
The comments in question came during another recent Fox Business interview with Maria Bartiromo, where Ratcliffe said that the story of a laptop being recovered that is understood to have belonged to Hunter Biden was not Russian disinformation. Ratcliffe dispelled claims by Democrat supporters that the laptop was not real, or that the emails discovered on the laptop were faked.
“So, Maria, it’s funny that some of the people that complained the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing intelligence and unfortunately, in this case, it is Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who as you pointed out on Friday said that the intelligence community believes that Hunter Biden’s laptop and e-mails on it are part of some Russian disinformation campaign,” he said.
He then made it abundantly clear that the “intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that and we shared no intelligence with chairman Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign.”
The authenticity of the emails has also not been denied by Hunter Biden’s lawyer, who also asked the Delaware computer repair show if they could take back the computer a day before the famous New York Post report was published.
George Mesires, Hunter Biden’s lawyer, has not responded to emails from media outlets asking whether the repair shop paperwork is a forgery.
Here ya go….this is the email sent to John Paul by Hunter Biden’s lawyer. It is in reference to returning the laptops. Also…the attorney said Hunter dropped em off in 2017. Nope..try April 2019. He didn’t even know when he left em there. Redactions on this document are mine https://t.co/QszglOJV1d pic.twitter.com/VvEguJ0Cec

A senior intelligence officer responded to the comments by Ratcliffe and told Fox News that he is 100% correct.
“There is no intelligence at this time to support Chairman Schiff’s statement that recent stories on Biden’s foreign business dealings are part of a smear campaign that ‘comes from the Kremlin,’” the source said.
“Numerous foreign adversaries are seeking to influence American politics, policies, and media narratives. They don’t need any help from politicians who spread false information under the guise of intelligence,” the source added.
The evidence, so far, suggests that the emails are real, however, there has yet to be an official statement from the Biden campaign on the matter.
