House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) pledged to support subpoenaing top intelligence officials concerning their knowledge about the Hunter Biden laptop scandal — if Republicans take back the House in the November midterms.

“They should come in and talk to us. You’d want to ask these individuals what did they know and when,” McCarthy said in an exclusive interview with The New York Post.  “People can come in and talk to us and answer the questions. If that’s not the case there are times we will use the subpoena as well.”

McCarthy then turned his attention to a letter published by 51 former intelligence officials, claiming the Hunter Biden story was likely Russian Disinformation — a now debunked claim, as The New York Times admitted.

“We do not know if the emails, provided to the New York Post… are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement — just that our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case.” the letter read.

McCarthy is not buying the explanations of these former officials. Why would they put their reputations on the line for something so shoddy? How could they claim it was Russian Disinformation before even investigating the contents of the laptop?

“You would want to ask these individuals first of all, ‘Would you still sign the letter today, and who asked you to sign the letter and why did you sign the letter, and what information did you have prior? Why did you feel comfortable — especially with your own reputations — that you would sign that letter?” McCarthy proclaimed.

“Was it someone from the [Biden] campaign who asked, or was it people in the intel community? I think these questions have to be answered. You cannot allow an intel community to utilize their name in an improper way without correcting,” he concluded.

These are questions which do merit answers, and McCarthy claims Republicans will not stop there.

He also promised “blockbuster investigations will include the origins of Coronavirus and the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan,” as The Post reported.

It will be likely be a big red wave of monumental proportions for the GOP this Fall, and it should scare Democrats, whose unchecked reign of power will likely be over — for at least the foreseeable future.
