The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced the establishment of a new “Homeland Intelligence Experts Group” in a press release issued on Tuesday. This group will convene quarterly to address various topics, including concerns related to “emerging technology.”
Among the individuals selected by DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to join this group, three were former intelligence officials who were involved in discrediting the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story. Many argue that this story could have had an impact on the 2020 presidential election.
The letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials, including John Brennan, James Clapper, and Paul Kolbe, suggested that the Hunter Biden laptop story exhibited “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
These former intelligence officials, often referred to as the “spies who disputed,” will now offer their insights to the Department’s Undersecretary for Intelligence and Analysis, Ken Wainstein, and Counterterrorism Coordinator Nicholas Rasmussen, along with a panel of seventeen experts.
