Jim Jordan Puts Biden On Notice After FBI Makes Monumental Admission

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

The Justice Department and FBI have allegedly been used as political weapons against Americans and many of their political leaders, according to the majority of House Republicans.

The House Judiciary Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government’s chairman, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), revealed on Monday in a Twitter thread that “FBI Special Agent Elvis Chan appeared to make false statements under oath about the Bureau’s suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the 2020 presidential election,” according to the Daily Caller.

Chan was a key player in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election as the primary liaison between the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF) and a number of social media companies. According to documents Jordan made public, Chan lied about his interactions with computer firms in relation to the Hunter Biden laptop story.

“Internal FB docs reveal that an FBI Special Agent made false statements in testimony about the FBI’s role in the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story,” Jordan tweeted Monday.

U.S. laws state that it is a criminal to make a false statement while testifying before Congress.

The current FITF Section Chief, Laura Dehmlow, claimed that she and Chan met with Facebook on October 14, 2020, to discuss the Hunter Biden laptop story that the New York Post had reported on around that time. In July, Dehmlow gave a testimony before Jordan’s committee.

When questioned about the veracity of the information on Hunter Biden’s laptop, the FBI said “no comment.” Dehmlow claimed the response was made in accordance with instructions from an unnamed FBI officer during internal deliberations regarding the laptop, which the organization was aware was legitimate and not a piece of Russian propaganda prior to The Post’s publication of its findings.

“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 said.

Chan gave his testimony in November 2022 as a part of the Missouri v. Biden censorship litigation, which was brought by the Republican attorneys general of Missouri and Louisiana. Chan recalled the FITF’s conversation with Facebook throughout his testimony, and he voiced his assurance that he had not attended any other meetings with internet companies discussing the laptop.

“I was confident that I was not a party to any meeting with social media companies where Hunter Biden was discussed outside of the one incident that I told you about,” Chan said, according to his testimony.

Jordan discovered that Chan also said he was unaware of any conversations between FBI agents and Facebook regarding the Hunter Biden case that were being investigated by legislators.

Jordan displayed a Facebook internal document that showed Chan and company representatives had a “follow-up” meeting on October 15, the day after the Hunter Biden story was suppressed and the FBI had its first meeting with the social media site.

“The Committee has recently obtained an internal Facebook document PROVING that Agent Chan had a secret “follow up” call with Facebook about the Hunter Biden laptop story on October 15,” Jordan wrote on the “X” platform in a post containing a screengrab of the document.

“COMPLETELY FALSE,” Jordan noted in all caps in his thread.

Chan said he had “no internal knowledge” of the FBI’s Hunter Biden probe, which Jordan pointed up as another inconsistency in Chan’s evidence. Chan had in fact told Facebook officials about the FBI’s investigation against Hunter Biden, according to internal communications that were made public by the Ohio Republican.

“Chan advised that he was up to speed on the current state of the matter within the FBI and that there was no current evidence to suggest any foreign connection or direction of the leak,” a Facebook employee said on Oct. 15, 2020.
