(ConservativeInsider.org) – Between the rocky 2020 presidential election and oppressive federal policies put forth during the coronavirus pandemic, many Americans have lost trust in the government and the belief that the rule of law actually applies to those in power. With this in mind, Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) introduced a new resolution that would hold over 50 federal intelligence officials accountable for misleading the public.
On Tuesday, March 29, Gaetz announced his “Spook Who Cried Wolf Resolution,” which would indefinitely revoke security clearances for “51 intelligence officials who publicly signed a letter decrying the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation.” Representative Gaetz shared his news on Twitter:
BREAKING: Today I will be introducing the “Spook Who Cried Wolf Resolution” to indefinitely bar security clearances for 51 intelligence officials who publicly lied and labeled the real contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation.

The federal officials in question published the letter in October 2020, just days before the presidential election. The letter claimed that the Hunter Biden laptop scandal had all the key markings of a Russian plot. However, on March 17, 2022, a New York Times article confirmed that the laptop and the emails in question were real.
If the Florida congressman can get this resolution passed, he’ll effectively hold dozens of federal employees who misled the American public at a crucial time in our nation’s history accountable. This is significant as it may increase trust in the federal government and its agencies, which is critical if this democratic republic is to continue to lead the free world.
