In what could be disastrous news for President Joe Biden, Elon Musk has announced that “more smoking guns” could be released detailing collusion between Twitter and Democrats during the 2020 election.
“I’m somewhat leaving this up to Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss,” Musk said regarding the possibility of further revelations.
Decision up to two journos
“But,” he added, “I think the natural thing would be to say like, ‘okay, what happened after the election? Y’know, Hunter Biden laptop stuff?”
Taibbi explained in a series of tweet on Friday how “Twitter took extraordinary steps” to limit distribution of articles published by the New York Post on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
In addition to scenes of drug use and sexual activity, the device contained emails documenting Biden’s extensive business dealings with hostile foreign governments, something his father appears to have been involved with.
Twitter went so far as to remove links and post warnings that the material “may be ‘unsafe,'” steps the company usually takes when dealing with malware and child pornography.
18. Twitter took extraordinary steps to suppress the story, removing links and posting warnings that it may be “unsafe.” They even blocked its transmission via direct message, a tool hitherto reserved for extreme cases, e.g. child pornography.

Musk suggests he’s in danger
Furthermore, Twitter emails show that employees “handled” problems for the Biden campaign by deleting negative tweets.

Musk suggested during the discussion on Saturday that his life may be in danger, saying, “Frankly the risk of something bad happening or literally even being shot is quite significant.”
“I’m definitely not going to be doing any open air car parades, let me put it that way,” he went on, adding, “It’s not that hard to kill me if somebody wanted to, so hopefully they don’t.”
