Kevin McCarthy Plans to Subpoena Intel Experts Who Signed Letter Calling Hunter Biden Laptop Russian Disinfo
“Why did you use the reputation that America was able to give to you more information, but use it for a political purpose and lie to the American public?”
Following the revelations of the #TwitterFiles, presumptive Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is now saying that the GOP controlled House will subpoena the 51 intel experts who signed a letter ahead of the 2020 election calling the Hunter Biden laptop Russian disinformation.
McCarthy made the comments Saturday night during an appearance on FOX News. He mentioned James Clapper and James Brennan by name.

Kevin McCarthy pledges subpoenas for 51 intel agents in wake of Hunter Biden ‘Twitter Files’ revelations
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy reacted to the “Twitter Files,” revealing how the tech giant purportedly suppressed the Hunter Biden laptop story in the final weeks of the 2020 presidential election.
Elon Musk entrusted independent journalists Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss to expose the behind-the-scenes efforts through the release of the “Twitter Files.”
McCarthy said it is “egregious what we’re finding” on Saturday’s “One Nation.”
“Those 51 intel agents that signed a letter that said the Hunter Biden information was all wrong — was Russia collusion — many of them have a security clearance.”
McCarthy said he’s going to bring them before a committee and have a hearing.
“Why did they sign it?” he asked. “Why did they lie to the American public? A Clapper, a Brennan? Why did you use the reputation that America was able to give to you more information, but use it for a political purpose and lie to the American public?”

This is something McCarthy has been talking about for almost a week now:
We're learning in real-time how Twitter colluded to silence the truth about Hunter Biden's laptop just days before the 2020 presidential election.⁰
In 32 days, the new House Republican majority will get answers for the American people and the accountability they deserve.

Mark Moore of the New York Post has more on this:
Former CIA Director John Brennan and ex-National Security Council Director James Clapper were among a group of former intelligence officials who signed a statement days after the expose, claiming it “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
McCarthy questioned the move.
“Why did you use the reputation that America was able to give to you … but use it for a political purpose and lie to the American public?” he said on Fox.
Republicans are preparing to launch a number of investigations into the Biden family as a result of The Post’s reporting about Hunter Biden’s overseas business relationships while his father was vice president in the Obama administration.
Some conservatives have expressed apprehension about McCarthy as Speaker, but he seems to be working hard to ease those concerns.
