A recent poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports found that 53% of Americans believed there is a politicized element within the FBI that works as “Joe Biden’s personal Gestapo.”
And that seems to have been confirmed by an admission by Facebook CEO Mark Zukerberg, who said the social media giant banned, censored, gagged, suppressed, stifled, and restricted any news about information found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, after being contacted by the FBI.
Hunter Biden, of course, is the much-maligned son of US President Joe Biden. His laptop contained rafts of information on how he used his political connection to wrangle deals that allegedly included companies in Communist China.
The Daily Wire reports:
Zuckerberg told podcast king Joe Rogan that the FBI, which by then had been in possession of the laptop for nearly a year, contacted top Facebook officials weeks before the election to warn them that a major dump of Russian disinformation was coming. When the New York Post broke the story, Twitter kicked the news site off its platform, and Facebook, Zuckerberg said, downranked the story for over a week to dampen its impact.
“We just kind of thought, hey, look, if the FBI, which I still view as a legitimate institution in this country, it’s like very professional law enforcement, they come to us and tell us that we need to be on guard about something, then I want to take that seriously,” Zuckerberg told Rogan.
It sounds more like FBI collusion and disinformation than a Russian one during the last US Presidential election.
From Fox News:
Speaking on an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Zuckerberg explained, “The FBI, I think, basically came to us – some folks on our team – and was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert… We thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that, basically, there’s about to be some kind of dump of that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant.’”
Zuckerberg acknowledged that “the distribution on Facebook was decreased” of the New York Post’s story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, noting, “fewer people saw it than would’ve otherwise.”
When asked by Joe Rogan how many people had been deprived of the information, Zuckerberg responded, “I don’t know off the top of my head, but it’s – it’s meaningful.”
And did it work?
It should be noted whistleblowers revealed to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) that the leadership of the FBI forbade agents from investigating Hunter Biden’s laptop until after the 2020 election was decided.
A bit more on Hunter Biden’s laptop saga:
The NY Post writes:
In October 2020, The Post exclusively reported on the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop that he ditched at a Delaware repair shop in April 2019.
The laptop’s hard drive contained a trove of emails, text messages, photos and financial documents between Hunter Biden, his family and business associates — detailing how the president’s son used his political leverage in his overseas business dealings.
The repair shop owner reported the laptop to the FBI, which seized the device and its hard drive.
