Jim Jordan reveals FBI official lied under oath about censorship of Biden laptop story

 August 21, 2023

As the 2020 presidential campaign drew to a close, big tech firms worked to suppress discussion of incriminating material found on Hunter Biden's laptop.

Earlier this month, Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan pointed to witness testimony as evidence that this censorship stemmed from the FBI's efforts to protect the Biden family. 

FBI had "no comment" on whether laptop was real

As the Daily Caller reported, Jordan posted a Twitter thread regarding FBI Special Agent Elvis Chan, who served as "the primary conduit between the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF) and social media platforms."

Jordan noted that current FITF Section Chief Laura Dehmlow told the House Judiciary Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government last month that she and Chan met with Facebook and Twitter executives on October 14, 2020 to discuss the laptop story.

Questions over Chan's testimony

"Did Dehmlow know that the FBI had the laptop and it was real? Yes. Did other key members of the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force know? Yes. The FBI knew the laptop was real and yet decided it would say 'no comment,'" Jordan wrote.

Yet when Chan testified this past fall as part of a lawsuit filed by Republican Attorneys General from Missouri and Louisiana, he said he said he was "confident" about not having participated in any laptop-related meetings with other tech companies.

Jordan noted how Chan reiterated that position when asked if he was "aware of any communications between anyone at Facebook and anyone at the FBI related to the Hunter Biden laptop story?"

Jordan says committee has proof Chan was lying

However, Jordan declared that his committee has "obtained an internal Facebook document PROVING that Agent Chan had a secret 'follow up' call with Facebook."

Jordan argued that the discrepancies explain "why the Biden DOJ has so far stonewalled the Committee’s efforts to interview Agent Chan."
