Gaetz Resolution Would Strip Security Clearances from Intel Officials Who Lied About Hunter's Laptop

March 29, 2022

Press Release


Washington, D.C. — Today, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) will introduce the “Spook Who Cried Wolf Resolution,” a House Resolution to indefinitely bar security clearances for 51 intelligence officials who publicly signed a letter decrying the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation. On October 19, 2020, 51 former intelligence officials signed a letter titled, “Public Statement on the Hunter Biden Emails,” which claimed Hunter Biden’s emails were a part of a “Russian information operation.” Following the censorship of the New York Post’s exposé on the emails by Big Tech and media tycoons, the New York Times confirmed the legitimacy of the emails on March 17, 2022. As of March 22, 2022, 4 of the 51 signatories maintained their support for the erroneous letter. The Spook Who Cried Wolf Resolution is co-sponsored by U.S Representatives Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Dan Bishop (NC-09), Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Paul Gosar (AZ-04), Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14), and Thomas Massie (KY-04).
