House GOP Probes CIA Interference In Hunter Biden Investigation

House Republican lawmakers have demanded that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) respond to allegations from a whistleblower that the agency had interfered in the Hunter Biden investigations in an attempt to stop them from moving forward.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) sent a letter to CIA Director William Burns on Thursday requesting he hand over records related to accusations that the agency acted alongside the Department of Justice (DOJ) to protect President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

“The information we recently received from the whistleblower seems to corroborate our concerns about DOJ’s deviations from standard process to provide Hunter Biden with preferential treatment,” the Republican chairmen wrote. “According to the whistleblower, in August 2021, when IRS investigators were preparing to interview Patrick Kevin Morris, an associate of Hunter Biden, the CIA intervened to stop the interview.”

“Two DOJ officials were allegedly summoned to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia for a briefing regarding Mr. Morris,” Comer and Jordan added. “At that meeting, it was communicated that Mr. Morris could not be a witness during the investigation.”

The Republican lawmakers provided Burns with a deadline of April 4 to respond to their inquiry.

This is the latest news in a probe into alleged CIA interference in the 2020 election, which began in December 2023 to investigate the agency’s involvement in the infamous letter that smeared the New York Post’s bombshell report on Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation.

In December, Jordan sent another letter to Burns, where he demanded to know how many of the 51 “former intelligence officials” were on the CIA’s payroll at the time that they signed the blatantly false letter.

“We understand that former intelligence officials often return to the intelligence community under private contract for their previous agencies,” Jordan wrote. “It is vital to the Committees’ oversight to understand whether any of the signatories of the public statement were actively employed by CIA as contractors or consultants at the time they signed the public statement.”

The CIA has faced intense scrutiny in recent years over its clear bias in favor of Democrats and against Republicans, including accusations that the agency peddled false conspiracies to undermine Republicans, especially former president and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

In February, independent journalists Michael Shellenberger, Matt Taibbi and Alex Gutentag published several bombshell exposés on the CIA — including one revealing that the agency was responsible for the Trump-Russia Hoax, providing evidence that the intel agency had put pressure on allied nations to surveil Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“The US [intelligence community] asked the ‘Five Eyes’ intelligence alliance to surveil Trump’s associates and share the intelligence they acquired with US agencies, say sources close to a House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HSPCI) investigation,” the journalists reported.

Shellenberger, Taibbi and Gutentag also alleged that the FBI’s controversial raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home was an operation to recover material that would expose the extent of the deep state’s involvement in the Russia Hoax.

“Multiple sources believe that Trump’s possession of the binder, or one of multiple binders, led the FBI to raid his home in Mar-a-Lago, which led to the prosecution of Trump by Justice Department special prosecutor Jack Smith,” the journalists wrote, adding that Trump’s CIA Director Gina Haspel had “repeatedly blocked attempts to declassify information about the Trump-Russia investigation” as far back as 2018.
