Secretary of State Antony Blinken has denied that he asked intelligence officials to write a letter claiming that the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation during an interview with Fox News Channel’s The Story, on Monday.
Blinken claims that he “didn’t ask for it, didn’t solicit it," despite the testimony of former acting CIA Director Michael Morell who indicated that Blinken had asked for it.
Fox News State Department correspondent Benjamin Hall asked Blinken, "I want to ask about the letter that was written concerning Hunter Biden’s laptop that said it was Russian disinformation. Can you explain what your role was in that and if you incentivized it?"
Blinken responded by saying, “Well, first, one of the great benefits of this job is that I don’t do politics and don’t engage in it. But, with regard to that letter, I didn’t — it wasn’t my idea, didn’t ask for it, didn’t solicit it. And I think the testimony that the former Deputy Director of the CIA, Mike Morell put forward confirms that."
The problem is that Blinken wasn't the secretary of State in 2020, he was working on the Biden campaign and as such, extremely involved in politics.
Blinken is obviously spooked and is doing everything in his power to protect himself.
