On former intelligence officials using their titles for political purposes:
“These are all former intelligence officials who are trafficking on [their service]…. It gives them the credibility to band together in the eyes of the media and do things like they did with this letter about the laptop. 
“They come out, and they tell people this is all Russian disinformation…. These are all formers trafficking on their former service. It’s not just that they put the letter out there. They have every right to put letters out there. It’s what happened after the letter that we’re forgetting. Facebook refused to allow you to post the New York Post story. All the other media outlets refused to even report on it. 
“There was a complete and total systemic blackout on the issue because these people, this unelected, unappointed, self-appointed committee of formers signed this letter. It turns out not to be true, and none of them have apologized.”
On the media’s role in elevating former intelligence officials: 
“The secondary problem is how the media reacted. They take it as the gospel truth. It’s one thing to say, here’s an article, and the Trump people say this, but Biden has 50 formers who say that it’s not okay. They didn’t even write the story. The whole thing was blacked out. 
“In essence, parts of this country never heard about the laptop because it wasn’t allowed. [The American people] weren’t allowed to post on Facebook about it. They would take down your posts. You weren’t allowed to post about it on social media. They would take down your posts. 
“The First Amendment gives people the right to lie. It happens all the time in political campaigns. What becomes a problem is when systematically, across the board, the entire media colluded to basically cover up the story. 
“Today, there’s an active Justice Department investigation on the laptop because it was real and it was true. But obviously that would have been very inconvenient to have out there in October of 2020 as opposed to after the election.”
On the good work done by our intelligence agencies:
“I travel around the world, and I meet the people working out in the field. They want no part of this stuff. This is a Washington-centric group of people who are looking for a big job so they can get close to one of these campaigns.”
