An FBI agent has testified that he met with Silicon Valley giants “weekly” on the eve of the 2020 election, shedding further light on an alleged conspiracy to elect Joe Biden by censoring unsavory information about his son’s overseas business deals.
Agent Elvis Chan conceded during a deposition that the FBI had secret meetings with Facebook and Twitter to warn about so-called “disinformation,” Fox News reported.
FBI met with Big Tech?
The damning admission came during a deposition to Republican attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana, who are suing the Biden administration over its alleged collusion with Big Tech to censor conservatives.
Chan, who served in the FBI’s San Francisco office, testified that the bureau warned social media companies about so-called Russian “disinformation.”
Of course, “Russian disinformation” became the media’s pretext for shutting down the Hunter Biden scandal after the New York Post published the scandalous contents of Biden’s laptop in October 2020.
Chan’s testimony mirrors what top executives at Facebook and Twitter have said about interactions with the FBI on the eve of the 2020 election.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted on Joe Rogan’s podcast in August that his company limited the Hunter Biden story’s reach after receiving a vague warning about a “dump” of “Russian propaganda” from the FBI.
Zuckerberg said he couldn’t recall if Hunter Biden was mentioned, but Facebook took the warning “seriously” because the FBI is a “legitimate institution.”
Twitter’s former “safety chief” Yoel Roth also said in a sworn declaration that the company was specifically warned during the FBI’s weekly meetings that there would be a “hack-and-leak” targeting Hunter Biden in October of 2020.
During his deposition, Chan said he could not recall if Hunter Biden was specifically mentioned, but he did admit that a “hack and leak” scenario was discussed.
Did FBI rig the election?
FBI whistleblowers have also alleged that the bureau blocked a probe into Hunter Biden prior to the election, with officials saying they were “not going to change the outcome of the election again,” referring to the FBI’s controversial decision to reopen a probe into Hillary Clinton days before the 2016 election.
Insiders at Twitter had similar concerns, according to explosive internal company e-mails released by Twitter owner Elon Musk on Friday.
“Given the SEVERE risks here and the lessons of 2016, we’re erring on the side of including a warning and preventing this content from being amplified,” Roth wrote.
Of course, many suspect that the FBI and Big Tech did in fact change the outcome of the election by censoring a legitimate scandal.
