Former CIA Director Leon Panetta was a prominent member of the Dirty 51 — the former intelligence officials who signed the lying public statement (“letter”) asserting that the New York Post’s 2020 reporting on the emails found on the hard drive of Hunter Biden’s laptop “ha[d] all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
The letter an information operation, but it was a Biden campaign information operation assisted by the campaign’s press adjunct. Appearing on Fox News’ Special Report yesterday to discuss the Hamas/Israel war, Bret Baier asked Panetta if he stands by the letter (video below). Of course he does. The man has no shame. He’s still dirty after all these years.
Here's the clip of Leon Panetta telling Bret Baier he has no regrets about the MIS-information that the Hunter Biden laptop was a Russian disinformation operation. He wouldn't get this question on the lefty networks. pic.twitter.com/rHRDRsaS4H
