Originally the official Menzingen "party line" was that the letter was a fake. Now that they have started punishing priests, they have as good as admitted to the world that teh letter is genuine. In any case, as others have pointed out, the arguments contained in the letter are what matters, not who wrote it. The message, not the messenger.
Bp. Fellay talks about "revolutionaries" whose only desire is to harm the SSPX and to attack it and weaken it. The District Superior of France issued a communique attacking the priests, a translation of which can be read here. Nowhere are the arguments of the letter refuted, nowhere are it's contents addressed.
One of the three priests, Fr. Rioult, has written a reply, which can be read in translation here.
