CNN Debate Moderator’s Ex-Husband Linked to Hunter Biden Laptop Hoax

Leave it to CNN to pick one of the most biased, controversial choices as a debate moderator for the first Trump-Biden debate.

On Thursday, the far-left lame-stream media network will host the first presidential debate of the election cycle.

Along with Jake Tapper, Dana Bash will “moderate” the debate.

If you don’t know who she is, USA Today explained:

Dana Bash is CNN‘s chief political correspondent. She anchors “Inside Politics with Dana Bash” and co-anchors “State of the Union.”

She regularly serves as a moderator for political town halls and debates. She moderated two presidential primary debates in the 2020 election and six presidential primary debates for the 2016 election. Tapper and Bash also co-moderated a Republican primary debate earlier this year.

She has a forthcoming book “America’s Deadliest Election,” and has launched special CNN series like “Being…” and the “Badass Women of Washington.”

Bash graduated from The George Washington University.

As it turns out, Dana Bash’s former husband, former CIA chief of stall Jeremy Bash was one of the 51 infamous intelligence officials who lied about Hunter Biden’s notorious laptop being “Russian disinformation.”

Jeremy Bash is now a national security analyst for NBC News and MSNBC. He was also chosen by Biden for his Intelligence Advisory Board.

The Washington Examiner gave more details on his background:

President Joe Biden’s latest pick for his Intelligence Advisory Board is an MSNBC pundit who was among dozens of former intelligence officials to sign a letter in 2020 claiming, without evidence, that the Hunter Biden laptop story was part of a Russian disinformation operation.

Jeremy Bash, a former chief of staff at the CIA and Pentagon, was picked by Biden to be part of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board on Friday. Bash, along with roughly 50 other ex-intelligence officials, signed a letter in October 2020 claiming the Hunter Biden laptop saga had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation,” while Bash himself suggested on TV that the laptop story was “Russian disinformation.”

The biography of Bash provided by the White House noted he was the chief of staff under Leon Panetta when he was CIA director and then secretary of defense. Panetta also signed the Hunter Biden letter. Other signatories included Obama CIA Director John Brennan, Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Obama acting CIA Director Mike Morell, and former George W. Bush CIA Director Michael Hayden.

Can you get anymore biased than that?

Check out what folks on social media are saying about this discovery:


The New York Post reported on Jeremy Bash’s link to the Hunter Biden laptop hoax back in 2022:

An ex-intel official and MSNBC pundit who falsely claimed Hunter Biden’s laptop could be Russian disinformation has been appointed to a White House board that offers the president national intelligence advice.

The appointment of Jeremy Bash, a former CIA chief of staff during the Obama presidency, to the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board was announced Friday by the Biden administration.

Bash clinched the new role despite signing onto a letter along with 50 other former intelligence officials prior to the 2020 election that cast doubt on The Post’s expose of Hunter Biden’s laptop, insisting the computer’s contents “has the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

The letter was written in mid-October weeks before the election between Biden and President Donald Trump — and after The Post published its first story on Biden’s son. More than a year later, the New York Times and the Washington Post both reported the emails on the laptop were legitimate and confirmed that Hunter Biden was under federal investigation for tax fraud.

We think that Dana Bash should be disqualified from moderating this debate based on this information alone.

But, this likely won’t happen.

Instead, President Trump should definitely call her out over it.
