There has been a blockbuster revelation in the Hunter Biden laptop letter that was put out by former intelligence officers.
A report broke earlier this week that the letter was actually approved by the CIA.
In earlier reporting, that seemed unlikely due to the quick turnaround and lack of disclaimers on the letter, but Fox News has obtained documentation that the letter, was in fact, approved by the agency.
What in the World…
Michael Morell, the former CIA boss that solicited signatures, forwarded the letter to the CIA for approval.
In response, the CIA stated, "The board determined it contains no classified information and can be published. Agency approval for publication of this material does not represent Agency endorsement or verification of this work."
In Morell's letter to the signatories, he stated that he would get the approval. Other intelligence officials that saw the initial timeline assumed the letter was not cleared due to the tightness of that timeline.
For instance, that letter showed up on Politico the very next day, so the wheels of justice were moving pretty quickly to get this letter approved and out, so the letter was clearly fast-tracked by someone inside the agency that wanted to help them get this out there for Biden, reports the New York Post.
The assumption was made because letters that are approved would generally have that disclaimer on the bottom of them. What makes it rather astonishing that the letter was approved was that Trump's intelligence officials had already stated the laptop was legitimate, so how could a letter be approved that went directly against what the agency already knew?
This comes amid a bit of a rift between Hunter Biden and Joe Biden.
Hunter, to this point, has taken a rather passive approach to defending himself, more than likely because he figured his father would be able to fix it.
The House investigation has thrown a bit of a wrench into that, so now Hunter wants to take a more "combative approach" to his defense, having recently changed his defense team.
This was done without any consultation with Biden's aides, which has them worried that this new approach could expose Joe.
The CIA has still not commented on the letter's approval.
Something tells me this particular narrative is just getting warmed up.
