House Republicans said Wednesday they will try to shut down a new Homeland Security intelligence panel, whose members include several Obama administration figures who spread disinformation about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The chief targets are James Clapper, who was director of national intelligence, and John Brennan, who ran the Central Intelligence Agency. They took part in an effort during the 2020 campaign to castigate Hunter Biden’s laptop as a Russian disinformation plot, when in fact it was authentic.

“This is an invasion and I am the one candidate from Day 1 who knows exactly how to stop it,” Trump said.
“A vote for President Trump means Joe Biden’s horror show on the southern border ends at noon on Inauguration Day,” he said, adding he will “terminate every open-borders policy of the Biden administration.” Read Full Story
