Former Obama CIA boss who organized 'Russian disinformation' letter donates to Nikki Haley

 February 21, 2024

A former head of the CIA under President Obama donated $1,000 to Republican Nikki Haley's longshot presidential campaign. 

Michael Morrell organized the notorious "Russian disinformation" letter that led to the censorship of the Hunter Biden scandal on the eve of the 2020 election.

Morrell's support for Haley underscores her cross-over appeal among national security hawks in both parties who have recoiled at President Trump's "America First" foreign policy.

Haley has tied Trump to Russia, citing the presumptive GOP nominee's comments about pulling back from NATO and his response to the death of Alexei Navalany.

Nikki Haley's newest supporter

Trump spent much of his presidency battling false accusations of "Russian collusion" that were boosted by members of the intelligence community, including former Obama CIA boss John Brennan.

He was just one of the 51 signers of the notorious letter labeling Hunter Biden's laptop Russian propaganda ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

The letter, which came with no evidence, gave media and Big Tech organizations a pretext to suppress authentic news reporting on Hunter's e-mails. Morrell was the primary organizer of the letter.

In an e-mail asking for Brennan's signature, Morrell explained the letter would give Biden a "talking point" to rebut Trump's attacks during a presidential debate.

"Ok, Michael, add my name to the list. Good initiative. Thanks for asking me to sign on," Brennan wrote.

After the debate, Morrell received a thank you over the phone from the Biden campaign.

Establishment embraces Haley

Many wonder whether the intelligence community tipped the scales of what proved to be an extremely close election.

Eventually, months into Biden's presidency, major media organizations began to acknowledge the authenticity of Hunter Biden's e-mails.

Democrats are once again resorting to heavy-handed methods to secure Biden's re-election in 2024, with Trump facing multiple criminal probes spearheaded by Democrats.

Trump is polling ahead of Biden, leading Democrats to lean on past presidents, including Obama, to galvanize support for the enfeebled incumbent.

While Haley seems to have little chance of beating Trump, her campaign is being fueled with donations from Wall Street and Biden supporters eager to block Trump from power.

She has vowed to stay in the race past this weekend's primary in her home state of South Carolina, where Trump is expected to win handily.
