Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Following the revelation that Secretary of State Antony Blinken was behind the coordination of a letter claiming Hunter Biden’s laptop contained Russian disinformation, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) are calling for Blinken’s resignation.  The letter was released just before the 2020 presidential election and signed by 51 former intelligence officials.  On Thursday after former CIA Director Mike Morell testified that Blinken had urged him to organize the letter in October 2020 to help the Biden campaign, the two legislators demanded Blinken’s resignation.  Biggs said, “Let’s talk about our allies who now don’t trust us at all…How in the world can he remain our spokesperson to the world? …I just don’t see how he can, and he should go. I think he’s irreparably harmed the United States.”
