A new report out Wednesday from the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government on Wednesday, obtained by The Post Millennial, has revealed that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) solicited cosigners for the infamous letter calling the Hunter Biden laptop story “Russian disinformation” in the lead up to the 2020 election.
“One signer of the statement, former CIA analyst David Cariens, disclosed to the Committees that a CIA employee affiliated with the agency’s Prepublication Classification Review Board (‘PCRB’) informed him of the existence of the statement and asked if he would sign it. The Committees have requested additional material from the CIA, which has ignored the request to date,” the report states.
In a written statement provided to the committee by Cariens, he said that the CIA, or at least one CIA employee, “may have helped in the effort to solicit signatures for the statement,” the report states.
Cariens said that he spoke with the PCRB in October of 2020 regarding the review of his memoir and during the conversation the CIA employee “asked” him if he would sign the statement.
In an email sent by Cariens to Congressional investigators on March 5, 2023, he explained, “When the person in charge of reviewing the book called to say it was approved with no changes, I was told about the draft letter. The person asked me if I would be willing to sign. … After hearing the letter’s contents, and the qualifiers in it such as, ‘We want to emphasize that we do not know if the emails provided to the New York Post by President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement…’ I agreed to sign.”
Cariens told the investigators that he had been “following the Hunter Biden laptop issue,” and given his past expertise, “I felt there was enough circumstantial evidence to raise the suspicion that Russian intelligence was involved,” adding that his wife, a former CIA employee, signed as well.
