Joe Biden is paying his debts.
Jeremy Bash, a former chief of staff at the CIA and Pentagon, is now a member of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board.
Why is this important?
Well, Bash is one of the more than 50 former intelligence officials that wrote the Hunter Biden story off to Russian disinformation.
After the Hunter Biden laptop story broke in the New York Post, more than four dozen former intelligence officials came to the aid of Joe Biden.
The all signed a letter that was publicly posted, stating that the laptop story appeared to be Russian disinformation.
None of them inspected the laptop, yet that letter was used as an authority source to justify blackballing the story on social media and major news outlets.
Bash was one of the people that signed that letter.
Biden even used that letter during a debate to try to kill the story.
When Trump brought it up, he stated, “There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what he’s accusing me of is a Russian plan.
“They have said this is, has all the — four, five former heads of the CIA. Both parties say what he’s saying is a bunch of garbage.”
Bash, for his part, did the TV circuit, calling it “collusion in plain sight” and saying the emails were “mysteriously created.”
He added, “At a minimum, it’s conspiracy to engage in computer crimes and hacking in violation of criminal laws.”
Again, this man never had his hands on the laptop, yet he was somehow able to reach all these conclusions that were treated as fact.
The White House, in naming Bash to the board, stated, “The President’s Intelligence Advisory Board is an independent element within the Executive Office of the President.
“The President’s Intelligence Advisory Board exists exclusively to assist the President by providing the President with an independent source of advice on the effectiveness with which the Intelligence Community is meeting the nation’s intelligence needs and the vigor and insight with which the community plans for the future.”
This is the payoff for help winning the 2020 election… it’s that simple.
