The lengths Democrats and the media will go to to discredit the Hunter Biden scandal continue to astound.
Douglas Wise, former Defense Intelligence Agency deputy director, admitted this week that when he saw the Hunter laptop story, he knew “a significant portion of the content had to be real.”
Yet he still signed a letter, along with 49 other officials, casting doubt on the laptop just before the 2020 election because there “could” have been disinformation inserted by the Russians.
Wise defends the letter, noting the experts said they had no proof it was a Russian plot. But these deep staters knew exactly what they were doing: By claiming there was some theoretical lie, it gave the liberal media an excuse to ignore the reality.
Weaselly “what ifs” abound to this day. In the New York Times’ recent whitewash of Hunter, the paper noted it had “verified” some emails from the laptop as authentic, “out of thousands attributed to him.”
