Nothing I have seen really changes my opinion. I can’t tell you what part is real and what part is fake, but the thesis still stands for me, that it was a media influence hit job.”

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said Sunday that federal law enforcement agencies have no doubts that a laptop that contained damning, embarrassing content involving Hunter Biden is his, even as the president’s son has suggested during a national book tour it could be Russian disinformation.

In an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo for “Sunday Morning Futures,” former President Donald Trump’s spy chief also criticized former intelligence officials as well as political leaders and media pundits who have suggested that the information contained on the laptop’s hard drive was a Russian disinfo campaign.

“To your point earlier about his book tour and the things that he doesn’t remember over the last four years, again, there was an FBI investigation ongoing at the time, before the election. It was Hunter Biden’s laptop. The things on that laptop that the FBI and the Department of Justice have — those are real,” Ratcliffe told Bartiromo.

“But now the question is: will Joe Biden’s Department of Justice exercise prosecutorial discretion against Joe Biden’s son? I don’t know the answer to that. I know what the answer should be,” he added.

Last week during interviews, Hunter Biden falsely claimed that the intelligence community has come out publicly and said the laptop was part of a disinformation operation.

During an early interview to promote his new book, “Beautiful Things,” Biden admitted the laptop which was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019 “certainly” could be his and even suggested that it might have been stolen from him, hacked, or infiltrated by Russian intelligence services.

In one debate with then-President Donald Trump, Joe Biden suggested that the laptop data and story was part of a “Russian plan,” adding that “there are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what [Trump’s] accusing me of is a Russian plan.”

Biden was making reference to Politico report stating that over 50 ex-intelligence officials, including Obama CIA Director John Brennan, had signed a letter attesting to the laptop being part of a Russian plot.

But in his interview with Bartiromo, Ratcliffe pushed back while ripping the intelligence officials, saying he determined during his time in office that the Russian story was untrue.

“To have 50 former Obama-Clinton-Biden national security officials come out after the director of national intelligence says this is not true, and protect a false narrative to protect Joe Biden and try and influence the outcome of the election, that is the definition of politicizing intelligence,” he said.

“And people ask me all the time about election interference and election influence, and yeah, we need to be concerned about Russia and China and Iran, but there’s no greater expression of that than what you just saw there. A completely false narrative,” Ratcliffe — a former terrorism official within the Justice Department, federal prosecutor, and U.S. representative from Texas, added.

“The intelligence community knew that this was not Russian disinformation, and law enforcement knew that it was Hunter Biden’s laptop — there was an open investigation into that, and yet those officials, supported by a corporate media, ran a false narrative and misinformed the American people,” he said.
