Antony Blinken has a deep history with President Joe Biden. It may very well be that Blinken has done some underhanded, if not illegal, things for the Big Guy. These things may have him sitting in the Secretary of State seat. It certainly is not his credentials. Blinken is considered one of the “made men” in Biden’s world.
During the first Obama term, Blinken was National Security Advisor to Vice President Biden. Tony served as Democratic Staff Director for the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee from 2002 to 2008. We must remember he was advising Biden when most people claim Biden was on the wrong side of every Foreign Policy decision.
Blinken was also involved with the Penn Biden Center, where he was managing director of the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. He, of course, denies any knowledge of the classified documents found at the Center.
Blinken will have many questions to answer this week from House committees about his involvement in drafting the letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials claiming the reports of the Hunter Biden Laptop were Russian misinformation. This event was pivotal in the 2020 election and may have tipped the scale in Biden’s favor. The letter gave Biden the perfect cover when Trump broached the laptop story during the debates. It also allowed the mainstream to avoid any mention of the laptop except to disparage Trump for trying to make it and Hunter an election issue. Reports are that as many as 10% of Democrats would not have voted for Biden had they known about the laptop’s contents, which would have been more than enough to reelect Donald Trump.
By drafting this letter, Blinken is at least guilty of fraud, but the impact of the document shows evidence of election manipulation. The fact that Biden, Blinken, former acting CIA Director Michael Morrell, and Jake Sullivan were able to coerce these former officials to sign the letter shows how deep this conspiracy is and how the voters were manipulated. This Blinken-drafted letter all but assured Biden’s win in 2020.
Of course, there were spoils for these culprits. Antony Blinken was nominated and confirmed for the position of Secretary of State. Like most other Biden nominees, Blinken is over his head in this role. Jake Sullivan was also a “made” man and later made Biden’s national security adviser.
Other signatories to the Russian disinformation letter continue to flourish. MSNBC analyst Jeremy Bash signed the letter and was placed on the president’s Intelligence Advisory Board. As with Sullivan, it did not seem to matter that Bash had gotten one of the most critical intelligence stories of the election wrong.
Former CIA head James Clapper was referenced by Biden in the letter and was also a spreader of the Russian collusion claims. CNN gave him a media contract despite those scandals and a declaration of perjury.
The problem for these men now is the Republicans being in control of the House. Committees are making some headway, and despite political and media obstacles, we are getting to the truth. It does not change one element of this saga-Biden is still in the White House.
