Evidence of Democrats’ conspiracy to sway 2020 election getting too big to hide
Much of the attention paid to allegations of interference in the 2020 election has focused on former President Donald Trump’s claims of voter fraud and malfeasance. However, potential fraud at the polls is far less disturbing than the growing body of evidence that Democrats, the FBI, Big Tech, and legacy media worked together — right out in the open — to put President Joe Biden in the White House.
At least a dozen FBI whistleblowers have reached out to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), ranking members of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees, respectively, to inform them that, in the months leading up to the election, bureau insiders tried to scuttle the investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign business adventures. Their modus operandi was to label the story as Russian disinformation.
One whistleblower told the Republicans that FBI leadership deliberately slow-walked the investigation into Hunter Biden because they didn’t want it to have an effect on the 2020 presidential election.
Grassley and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), the ranking member of the Subcommittee on Investigations, are demanding some answers. On Friday, they sent a letter to FBI intelligence analyst Nikki Floris and FBI Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Bradley Benavides requesting they appear for a “transcribed interview” to discuss an “unnecessary briefing” in August 2020 on matters related to their investigation of Hunter Biden’s “financial connections to foreign governments and questionable foreign nationals.”
The senators wrote, “FBI officials initiated a scheme to downplay derogatory information on Hunter Biden for the purpose of shutting down investigative activity relating to his potential criminal exposure by labeling it ‘disinformation’” and “whistleblowers have also alleged that local FBI leadership instructed employees not to look at the Hunter Biden laptop immediately after the FBI had obtained it.”
Additional proof the FBI was on a mission to squash the Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the election came from a surprising source. During a lengthy and revealing interview on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast last Thursday, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted Facebook received a warning from the FBI about potential Russian misinformation.
Zuckerberg told Rogan, “The FBI, I think, basically came to us, some folks on our team, and said, ‘Hey, just so you know, you should be on high alert. We thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on a notice; basically, there’s about to be some kind of a dump that is similar to that, so just be vigilant.’”
This warning came shortly before the New York Post broke its bombshell story about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Rogan asked, “Did [the FBI] specifically say you need to be on guard about that story?”
“No, I don’t remember if it was that specifically, but it basically fit the pattern,” Zuckerberg replied.
He also told Rogan that Facebook’s “protocol” was “different than Twitter’s. What Twitter did is they said you can’t share this at all. We didn’t do that,” he said, referring to Twitter’s decision to ban all circulation of the Post’s report and suspend the Post’s account. Facebook didn’t go that far, Zuckerberg said, but the platform did intentionally limit the article’s circulation, he admitted.
Rogan noted that the story turned out to be real and asked Zuckerberg if he regretted “not having it evenly distributed and for throttling the distribution of that story?”
“Yeah, it sucks,” Zuckerberg answered. “It turned out after the fact, the fact-checkers looked into it, no one was able to say it was false. … I think it sucks, though, in the same way that probably having to go through a criminal trial but being proven innocent in the end sucks.”
But this wasn’t just an innocent mistake. Dozens of former intelligence community leaders — those with the wherewithal and experience to recognize that Hunter Biden’s laptop was legitimate — signed on to a letter discrediting the report as Russian disinformation. They gave Facebook and Twitter the justification they needed to squash the story — even though it was true.
One of the signers was former CIA Director and retired Air Force four-star Gen. Michael Hayden. Hayden recently responded to a tweet from Edward Luce, an editor at the Financial Times, which read: “I’ve covered extremism and violent ideologies around the world over my career. Have never come across a political force more nihilistic, dangerous & contemptible than today’s Republicans. Nothing close.”
Hayden’s reply? “I agree. And I was the CIA Director.”
The reason all of this is so damning is that Hunter Biden’s laptop had the potential to change the outcome of the 2020 election, and everyone knew it. That’s why the FBI allegedly delayed its investigation into Hunter Biden until after the election; why the New York Times and Washington Post confirmed that Hunter Biden’s laptop was legitimate only after Biden was in office; and why Big Tech tycoons such as Zuckerberg are only admitting they were wrong to crack down on the story years after the fact.
They were all in on it. It was a full-court press by our institutions to interfere in the 2020 election. And thanks to a group of FBI whistleblowers — something we’ve never had before — it’s all starting to come to light.
