FBI Paid Twitter Millions to Censor Hunter Biden Laptop Story: Report

The FBI paid nearly $3.5 million in taxpayer funds to Twitter to censor conservatives, according to the latest “Twitter Files” released.

Twitter took down the New York Post’s bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in Oct. 2020 after the FBI repeatedly warned executives at the Big Tech company it would be coming, internal documents reveal.

Is the FBI corrupt?

“Government paid Twitter millions of dollars to censor info from the public,” Twitter CEO Elon Musk wrote in a tweet.

Musk asked Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), “As (outgoing) Chair of House Intelligence, did you approve hidden state censorship in direct violation of the Constitution of the United States?”

A lengthy “TWITTER FILES: PART 7” on “The FBI & the Hunter Biden Laptop” thread was posted by independent journalist Michael Shellenberger Monday. The full thread is posted below.

The intelligence community “discredited factual information about Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings both after and *before* The New York Post revealed the contents of his laptop on October 14, 2020,” Shellenberger said.

FBI Special Agent Elvis Chan sent 10 documents to former Twitter Head of Site Integrity Yoel Roth through a one-way channel hours before the Post article was published. Chan urged Roth that the documents were “not spam” and asked him to “confirm receipt.” Two minutes later, Roth replied: “Received and downloaded – thanks!”

There were so many former FBI alumnae working at Twitter in 2020 that they had created their own secret Slack channel. Former FBI General Counsel Jim Baker, who started working as deputy general counsel for Twitter in 2021, told Roth the materials from Hunter Biden’s laptop were either faked or hacked, even though the Post included a receipt from the repair shop signed by Hunter Biden.

At least 10 percent of voters said knowledge of the story would’ve changed their mind about voting for Biden, according to a poll by the Media Research Center.
