The intelligence community worked to ensure Twitter would quash The New York Post’s report on Hunter Biden’s laptop. New internal documents released by Twitter show the company received over $3 million from the FBI in the run-up to the 2020 election. 

Michael Shellenberger released several documents in a thread titled “TWITTER FILES: PART 7.” The internal files show how the intelligence community sought to influence the company.

One goal of the FBI’s campaign was to censor content on the platform. High-ranking Twitter employees attended conferences with representatives from the intelligence community. At the meetings, the executives were primed to believe Russia would use the platform to influence the 2020 elections.

However, the documents released by Shellenberger show Twitter repeatedly told the FBI they have no evidence of any Russian interference. A June 26, 2020, email from Twitter exec Yoel Roth said, “we don’t at this time have a clear indication that [the accounts] are foreign in origin.”

After The NY Post dropped the Hunter Biden laptop story, Twitter officials concluded the story did not violate the platform’s policies. One employee, James Baker, who previously worked with the FBI, pushed the company to determine that the Hunter Biden emails were hacked. Baker lacked proof of that assertion; it was later confirmed the emails were authentic and not stolen.

Twitter would go on to prohibit users from even sharing a link to the article via direct messages. The story exposed corruption within the Biden family in the weeks before the 2020 election.

According to an email released by Shellenberger, during the run-up to the election, the FBI was paying Twitter millions. “I am happy to report we have collected $3,415,323 since October 2019!” an associate of Baker wrote in February 2021.

In addition to seeking to censor undesirable news, the FBI also sought to conduct warrantless searches of Twitter users. In Aug 2022, Twitter execs prepared for a meeting with the FBI, whose goal was “to convince us to produce more FBI EDRs.” Shellenberger tweeted, “EDRs are an “emergency disclosure request,” a warrantless search.”

  1. The vibrations of interstellar gamma and cosmic rays will eventuly permeate the minds of the receptors of people that can feel the spirit of the creators’ comings and goings, albeit, many will fall under the impressionist diabolical rabbinical quorum of dualistic mental distortions that contribute to a false reality, in the delusional psychopathy of inventive mythological and allegorical religious dogmas. Politics in my opinion, are ruled by such rifts in the process of political adversarial projections to get people to fear the circumstances, which are being creating, to manipulate the tax money of the masses and the structures of illusions it harbors in the Governmental state of propaganda and mental conditioning, propagandized in every war of Jewish Zionist making and the orthodoxy of the hierocratic religious order to separate the goyim, from a solidarity of non-Racial bias. Here we can find the circumference of the term normalcy bias, when considering the Ashkenazi Khazarian mafias world wide infrastructure of international proportions, now ruling the congress of the USofA’s political agendas, all being led by the dualistic elected of Israel in the congressional committees they control as parliamentary rule and not constitutional rule of law. Take away the last 50 years of congressional amendments that favor the communistic Neo-cons and Zionist Jewish Christians feathering the caps of the Babylonian Talmudic Rabbinic clergy and their mafia internationalist! “Tyranny”!

  2. Joe Biden. More corrupt than Bubba Clinton? Probably, and that’s really covering a large swath of US history. To paraphrase Casey Stengel talking about his hapless Mets…”Is there anyone in this country who knows how to govern by the rules?”
