While appearing on Monday’s edition of Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Director of Intelligence John Ratcliffe shredded claims from House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif and others who said the emails found on a laptop owned by Hunter Biden are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
“So Maria, it is funny that some of the people that complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing intelligence,” he said, referring to Schiff and others.
“And unfortunately, in this case, it is Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who, as you pointed out, said on Friday the intelligence community believes that Hunter Biden’s laptop and the emails on it are part of some Russian disinformation campaign. Let me be clear: The intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. We have shared no intelligence with Chairman Adam Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign,” he added.
“It’s simply not true,” Ratcliffe told Maria Bartiromo. “And this is exactly what I said would I stop when I became the Director of National Intelligence, and that’s people using the intelligence community to leverage some political narrative. And in this case, apparently, Chairman Schiff wants anything against his preferred political candidate to be deemed as ‘not real’ and as using the intelligence community or attempting to use the intelligence community to say there’s nothing to see here. Don’t drag the intelligence community into this. Hunter Biden’s laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign. And I think it’s clear that the American people know that.”
He went on to say that any investigation of Hunter Biden’s alleged wrongdoing would fall under the jurisdiction of the FBI, not the intelligence community.
