There is no evidence to suggest that Russia had anything to do with Hunter Biden's laptop and the scandalous information contained on it, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said.

Ratcliffe was on Fox Business Network's "Mornings with Maria" Monday and discussed allegations from Democrats that information purportedly on the laptop, which had emails that appear to link the Bidens, including Joe Biden, to China and the Ukraine, could have come from Russia.

"It's funny that some of the people who complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence," Ratcliffe said. "Unfortunately, it is [Rep.] Adam Schiff who said the intelligence community believes the Hunter Biden laptop and emails on it are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

"Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn't believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we have shared no intelligence with Adam Schiff, or any member of Congress."

He added that claims of Russia being behind the hard drive's contents, which included emails, photos, and videos, are "simply not true."

"Hunter Biden's laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign," he said, adding later than the FBI already looked at the drive.

A senior official in the U.S. intelligence community told Fox News that Ratcliffe is right.

"Ratcliffe is 100% correct," the unnamed official said. "There is no intelligence at this time to support Chairman Schiff's statement that recent stories on Biden's foreign business dealings are part of a smart campaign that 'comes from the Kremlin.' Numerous foreign adversaries are seeking to influence American politics, policies, and media narratives. They don't need any help from politicians who spread false information under the guise of intelligence."
