About to get wild’: Musk vows to release details of Twitter censoring Hunter Biden laptop story

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

The ‘Laptop From Hell’ is not going away; in fact, the American public is about to find out how and why the information on Hunter Biden’s laptop was being lied about by our top intelligence agencies and then censored by the FBI – and then by Big Tech- preventing Americans from talking about and learning about the massive corruption of the Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Mark Zuckerberg, Meta CEO of Facebook, shook the news cycle mid Summer when he admitted that Facebook cracked down on users from posting about or reading about the laptop ahead of the 2020 election- he told media then that it was because the social media giant was instructed to do that by the FBI.

In August, Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) pushed for clarity about comments made by  Zuckerberg in an interview when he indicated that Facebook took “meaningful” steps to decrease the distribution of the reports about Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2020 after Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officials approached the company with warnings about disinformation, according to a press release from Grassley’s office.

So we know that suppression of the story, which likely changed the outcome of the 2020 election, was being investigated and Facebook was complying.

Grassley and Johnson demanded records relating to the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) and FBI’s contact with Facebook, Twitter, and other social media companies regarding the Biden family, Hunter Biden’s laptop, and Russian disinformation around the time of the election. The press release shows, they also ask for the names of the government and Facebook officials involved in these conversations.

“The FBI’s consistent efforts to falsely paint information relating to Biden Family misconduct as Russian disinformation continues to draw serious concerns, and those concerns are magnified by the FBI’s consistent failure to answer congressional inquiries,” the senators wrote in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Chris Wray. “The FBI’s ill-conceived actions not only interfered in our congressional investigation by frustrating and obstructing our ability to advance the matters under review, it also interfered in the 2020 election.”

Grassley and Johnson are respectively the ranking members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. For years, the duo has investigated Hunter Biden’s dubious foreign business entanglements, during which the FBI provided an unnecessary August 2020 briefing to the senators—which then provided a pretext for political opponents to falsely label the investigation as advancing disinformation.

Now Twitter will comply- according to updates by company leadership.

A tweet shared on Wednesday from new Twitter boss Elon Musk helps provide a better understanding of why the billionaire has met so much resistance from the left after taking the helm at the social media platform, American wire service reported, adding details:

In another tweet shared the same day, after apparently rummaging through the closets at Twitter’s headquarters, Musk shared a photo of stacks of “#StayWoke” t-shirts, but that’s not all that he has access to as the new owner. As he intimated later in the day, Musk also has access to all the inner workings at Twitter.

News personality Alex Lorusso posted a tweet asking followers to “raise your hand” if they think Musk “should make public all internal discussions about the decision to censor the @NYPost’s story on Hunter Biden’s laptop.”Musk responded to the tweet to say, “This is necessary to restore public trust.”

“This is necessary to restore public trust,”  Elon Musk (@elonmusk)  posted on November 24, 2022.

Twitter joined with Facebook and other social media outlets to either censor entirely or otherwise limit the dissemination of the bombshell story involving Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” in the days leading up to the 2020 presidential election, while corporate media largely blackballed the story.

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey would later admit they were wrong to intervene in the Hunter Biden story. In another bombshell report earlier this year, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said they suppressed the story during the election because the FBI warned Facebook about “Russian propaganda” just before the laptop story broke.

These collective actions had a key impact on the outcome of the election, according to later polling.

A survey conducted by Technometrica Institute of Policy and Politics found that 79% of respondents said it was “very” or “somewhat” likely that “a truthful interpretation of the laptop” would have resulted in former President Donald Trump being reelected. Among Republicans, 57% were strongly convinced Trump would have won, compared to 48% of independents and 44% of Democrats.

Biden’s laptop was in the news again this week when CBS News, a full two years later and then some, finally came around to acknowledge that it exists — this being the once venerable CBS News, home of Walter Cronkite.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to Musk’s tease from Twitter:

“Major announcement from @ElonMusk: Commits to exposing details of @Twitter’s campaign intervention on behalf of Joe Biden against @realDonaldTrump,” Tom Fitton (@TomFitton) posted on Twitter on November 24, 2022.

“It is the proper commitment to make on Thanksgiving @elonmusk,” Viva Frei (@thevivafrei) posted on Twitter on November 24, 2022.

“I am loving the new Twitter.I rate this four popcorns out of four!” Peter Doran (@PeterBDoran) posted on Twitter on November 24, 2022.

“Pay Per View streaming event with all the dirty secrets. $8 to watch. I’d be happy to moderate,”  Carol Roth (@caroljsroth) posted on November 24, 2022.

“Curious if there was a request from the New York Times about it, due to the lawsuit. One way to stifle their defense would be to ensure they have no platform for which to speak,” Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) posted on Twitter on November 24, 2022.

“How about making public any conversations that happened between Twitter and the FBI or any other federal agency,” Dan Hollaway (@DanHollaway) posted on Twitter on November 24, 2022.

“Sweet mother of God. Shits about to get wild,” SETH WEATHERS (@sethweathers) posted on Twitter on November 24, 2022.
