FBI ‘Weekly’ Meetings Led To Twitter’s Censorship Of Hunter Biden Laptop Story

(Congress Report) – According to Miranda Devine of the New York Post, the Federal Bureau of Investigation warned social media giant Twitter during “weekly” held meetings prior to the 2020 presidential election to expect “hack-and-leak operations” by “state actors” that would involve Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and to be ready for this during the month of October, as per a sworn declaration by Twitter’s former head of site integrity, Yoel Roth.

So once again, ladies and gentlemen, you see the progressive left utilizing the FBI as a weapon against conservatives and protecting Democrats. This agency has been compromised in the worst way and the corruption that is eroding it needs to be scraped out as soon as possible. Those who have participated in this kind of activity deserve to be held accountable for violating the rights of the American people.

“The warnings were so specific that Twitter immediately censored The Post’s scoop about Hunter Biden’s laptop on Oct. 14, 2020, citing its ‘hacked materials’ policy, a move described on Saturday as “election interference” by Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk,” Devine wrote. “The extraordinary revelation for the first time lays bare how the FBI was involved in pre-bunking the story of the laptop, which had been in the bureau’s possession for almost a year.”

“I was told in these meetings that the intelligence community expected that individuals associated with political campaigns would be subject to hacking attacks and that material obtained through those hacking attacks would likely be disseminated over social media platforms, including Twitter,” Roth commented in a Dec. 21, 2020, declaration to the Federal Election Commission. “I also learned in these meetings that there were rumors that a hack-and-leak operation would involve Hunter Biden.”

Roth’s signed declaration has formed one part of Twitter’s defense against a complaint that was filed by the Tea Party Patriots Foundation which alleges that the company’s censorship of the original Post story concerning the laptop of Hunter Biden was “in kind” a type of campaign contribution to Joe Biden.

Devine then explained, “The FBI also warned Facebook to be on ‘high alert’ for a ‘dump’ of ‘Russian propaganda’ before the 2020 election, in terms specific enough that it ‘fit the pattern’ of The Post’s story, CEO Mark Zuckerberg told podcast host Joe Rogan in August.”

Twitter wasn’t the only social media company to take action and suppress the story. Facebook also pushed down the story.

Devine added, “The FBI agent who organized those weekly meetings with Big Tech was Supervisory Special Agent Elvis Chan, whose postgraduate thesis claimed that Russia interfered with the 2016 election to help former President Donald Trump.”

Chan provided testimony via Zoom Tuesday in a lawsuit launched against the Biden administration that he organized the meetings that took place in San Francisco for as many as seven D.C.-based FBI agents in the days leading up to the 2020 election. Chan also organized similar meetings with Facebook.

“The lawsuit brought by the Republican attorneys general of Missouri and Louisiana alleges that White House officials and federal agencies acted with Big Tech to censor ‘disfavored speakers, viewpoints and content on social-media platforms,'” Devine reported.

“Under questioning by Missouri Solicitor General John Sauer on Tuesday, Chan said the FBI warned Twitter to be on guard for a ‘hack and leak’ operation but could not recall whether Hunter Biden was mentioned,” she continued.

This, of course, is a critical bit of inconsistency with Roth’s sworn declaration which stated the FBI specifically mentioned Hunter Biden. A source with access to a transcript of Chan’s testimony revealed that the FBI used the meetings as an opportunity to lobby the social media platforms to change their terms of service so they could quickly take down “hacked material.”

The FBI knew this story was coming and took action to try and prevent the information it contained from reaching the voting public, knowing that it would likely persuade voters away from Joe Biden and lead to a second term for Donald Trump. How is this not election meddling?
