The complaint goes on to suggest that the Biden campaign actively participated in discrediting the Hunter Biden laptop story in order to aid Joe Biden’s campaign.
“[The] evidence suggests that the respondents failed to disclose coordinated expenditures constituting in-kind donations with respect to the infamous ‘Letter of 51’ former intelligence officials claiming that the Hunter Biden laptop story had ‘all the classic earmarks’ of Russian disinformation,” the complaint reads.
“Morell testified that his communication with Blinken was one of a few communications he had with the Biden campaign, explaining that he also received a call from Steve Ricchetti, Chairman of the Biden campaign, following the October 22 debate to thank him for writing the statement,” a House Judiciary Committee press release stated.
“Morell also explained that the Biden campaign helped to strategize about the public release of the statement. Morell further explained that one of his two goals in releasing the statement was to help then-[former] Vice President Biden in the debate and to assist him in winning the election.”
“There are reasons to believe that the public statement by 51 former intelligence officials was a coordinated political operation to help elect Vice President Biden in the 2020 presidential election, as set forth below,” the complaint stated.
“In 2016, high-ranking federal intelligence officials interfered in a presidential election, lying about Russia collusion in a failed effort to elect Hilary Clinton,” Reed D. Rubinstein, senior counselor and director of oversight and investigations for America First Legal said.
“In 2020, many of these same officials again interfered in a presidential election, lying about Hunter Biden,” Rubenstein added.
“The Federal Election Commission’s charge includes election integrity — Americans have the right to know who is coordinating with federal candidates. But this right is only as effective as the agency that enforces it. The FEC must act here.”
“There is reason to believe that the respondents failed to report the above contribution and to identify the individuals who made it,” the complaint adds.
