A former CIA officer recently took to Twitter to gleefully boast about how he took a “special pride” in his efforts to discredit the Hunter Biden laptop story as being part and parcel of Russian disinformation aided in “swinging” the 2020 election “away from Trump.”
The comments coming from this ex-CIA officer, John Sipher, stem from a back-and-forth between him and former Trump White House official Richard Grenell over the Hunter laptop discrediting efforts.

Sipher was one of many so-called intelligence experts who slapped their name and reputation on alleging that the Hunter Biden laptop story from the New York Post back in October of 2020 was part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
A March 18th report from the New York Post mentioned how Sipher was among those “officials” who’d “signed a letter saying that the laptop ‘has the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.’”
Yet, these 51 purported intelligence experts didn’t have any evidence to back up their assertions at the time – they were merely operating off a convenient hunch that happened to behoove the Biden campaign right before the election.
This letter they’d all signed on to was published on October 19th of 2020, a mere five days after the New York Post dropped the bombshell story on the laptop that has since been validated by a myriad of outlets – to include the New York Times.
Clearly, the massive cover-up and attempts to discredit a valid report by clamoring about Russia during an election year had some consequences.
Come March 27th, Grenell shared a screenshot of Sipher’s Twitter account, writing, “lol. He signed the letter saying Hunter’s laptop was Russian disinformation.”
