White House dodges question about FBI interference — RT World News


Federal agency allegedly “directed” Twitter executives to stop Hunter Biden’s laptop story

The White House declined to comment on the latest revelations from Twitter Files, which appear to suggest that the FBI was engaged in a pre-emptive campaign to discredit reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop and cancel it after publication.

“I will introduce you to the FBI. I won’t comment from here on that,” Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said during Monday’s daily briefing, when asked about allegations.

The son of the current president and then candidate Joe Biden left his laptop at a repair shop in Delaware, the owner of which was later summoned by the FBI for delivery. pay it. However, he did make a copy of the information on the device, which was then passed to the New York Post during the 2020 election campaign. When the Post posted a story about possible street vendors. Under the influence of Hunter Biden, Twitter briefly banned users from sharing it on its platform.

According to bestselling author Michael Shellenberger, who has been granted access to internal communications on Twitter by its new owner, Elon Musk, the FBI. “bait” corporate executives to treat news legitimately as a “hack-and-dump” operated by a malicious actor.

The federal agency has sent out a warning to Twitter about threats from foreign influence activities during the 2020 election, Shellenberger reported. It also has former FBI agents – “Alumni Bu” — worked for Twitter, who backed the story and later argued that the laptop was what the agency had warned about.

Former FBI advisor Jim Baker, a prominent figure in the ‘Russiagate’ story, has repeatedly emphasized that “Hunter Biden documents were forged, hacked, or both and violated Twitter policy,” Shellenberger said.

He added that considering the amount of time the FBI had to verify the laptop’s authenticity, it was “inconceivable” that Baker believes the New York Post report is not legitimate. The FBI took possession of the laptop in December 2019, while the Post published the story in October 2020.

More on Shellenberger’s Twitter Files and journalists Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss explained how the US intelligence community worked closely with the platform to mark the suspended speech the US government gave to be “wrong information.” It also shows that the FBI and Twitter have locked horns over the agency’s claims of increased activity by ‘propaganda’ bots, of which Twitter said it found no evidence.
