Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had a short reply when he was asked by Fox News if he regrets signing the intelligence officials’ letter in 2020 that labeled the Hunter Biden laptop story as Russian disinformation.

Clapper, along with 50 other former senior intelligence officials, signed the letter in October 2020 — just weeks before the presidential election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden — saying the New York Post story that exposed emails from Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

Since that letter, Hunter Biden’s laptop has been confirmed as authentic by multiple media outlets and the Department of Justice. The laptop was also confirmed as real during Hunter’s ongoing gun trial earlier this week when the prosecution shared images from the laptop and Hunter’s iCloud account that showed him nude and holding crack pipes.

When Clapper was asked if he regretted adding his name to the intelligence officials’ letter, he simply replied, “No,” Fox News reported. He also refused to publicly remove his name from the letter.

Hunter’s laptop contained evidence that the first son introduced the commander-in-chief to a Ukrainian businessman less than a year before then-Vice President Joe Biden pressured Ukrainian government officials to fire a prosecutor investigating the businessman’s company. Hunter had been hired to the board of a Ukrainian energy firm a year before Joe Biden’s meeting with the Ukrainian businessman.

James Clapper, who served as director of national intelligence under President Obama, recently stood by his decision to sign on to a 2020 letter with 50 other former officials warning Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation.

Asked by Fox News if he regretted signing the letter, which claimed the laptop had “all the earmarks” of Russian interference, Clapper said, “No.” This despite the laptop, which was abandoned at a Delaware repair shop, now being used by prosecutors in Hunter’s federal gun trial.

Clapper declined to publicly remove his name from the letter, according to the report, and would not acknowledge that he and the other signatories should have waited longer to make such a determination.

“The arrival on the US political scene of emails purportedly belonging to Vice President Biden’s son Hunter, much of it related to his time serving on the Board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation,” said the letter signed by 51 former intelligence agency officials.

James Clapper was one of 51 former officials to sign a 2020 letter condemning Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation

Published June 9, 2024

FIRST ON FOX: A former top intelligence official gave a one-word answer when asked if he would retract the letter he signed along with 51 other former officials warning Hunter Biden’s infamous “laptop from hell” was Russian disinformation.

James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence in the Obama administration, signed the heavily scrutinized letter just weeks before the 2020 presidential election, claiming the laptop had “all the earmarks” of a Russian effort to influence the vote.

“No,” he simply said when asked by Fox News Digital if he regretted signing it despite the laptop now being used by prosecutors arguing Hunter committed a federal gun crime.

Clapper also refused to publicly remove his name from the letter despite evidence proving the device and its contents were legitimate and would not concede he and the other former intelligence officials who signed on should have waited longer to weigh in.

The laptop, filled with videos and photos of drug use, sex acts and sensitive business communications, was shown to the jury Tuesday in an effort to prove the president’s son lied about using drugs on a gun purchase form.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
