Files Show Twitter Execs, FBI Communicating Before Hunter Biden Story Buried


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

The new Twitter files have shown more information that links the FBI to Twitter executives. A new batch of “Twitter Files” showed that messages were sent on Teleporter, which is a one-way communications platform where the FBI sends messages to Twitter, by FBI Special Agent Elvis Chan prior to the Hunter Biden laptop story being buried.

The message was sent to the man who was Twitter’s head of site integrity, Yoel Roth. And it came hours after Hunter Biden’s attorney, George Mesires, contacted Delaware computer store owner, John Paul (J.P.) Mac Isaac, who had Hunter Biden’s laptop.

“The next day, October 14, 2020, The New York Post runs its explosive story revealing the business dealings of President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. Every single fact in it was accurate,” reporter Michael Shellenberger said.

The reporter said that those researching the Twitter files have found evidence of “an organized effort by the intel community to influence Twitter & other platforms.”

“During all of 2020, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies repeatedly primed Yoel Roth to dismiss reports of Hunter Biden’s laptop as a Russian ‘hack and leak’ operation,” he said.

And there was no evidence that any of it was based on new evidence of Russian interference.

“Were the FBI warnings of a Russian hack-and-leak operation relating to Hunter Biden based on *any* new intel? No, they weren’t ‘Through our investigations, we did not see any similar competing intrusions to what had happened in 2016,’ admitted FBI agent Elvis Chan in Nov,” he said.

“Indeed, Twitter executives *repeatedly* reported very little Russian activity. E.g., on Sept 24, 2020, Twitter told FBI it had removed 345 ‘largely inactive’ accounts ‘linked to previous coordinated Russian hacking attempts.’ They ‘had little reach & low follower accounts,’” he said.


“After FBI asks about a WaPo story on alleged foreign influence in a pro-Trump tweet, Twitter’s Roth says, ‘The article makes a lot of insinuations… but we saw no evidence that that was the case here (and in fact, a lot of strong evidence pointing in the other direction),’” the reporter said.

“It’s not the first time that Twitter’s Roth has pushed back against the FBI. In January 2020, Roth resisted FBI efforts to get Twitter to share data outside of the normal search warrant process,” he said.

The reporter said that the intelligence community had been hammering Roth to think about the Russian hacking group APT28, which Roth confirmed during an interview with Kara Swisher.

“It set off every single one of my finely tuned APT28 hack-and-leap campaign alarm bells,” he said of the Hunter Biden laptop story.

This week Twitter CEO Elon Musk asked users on the social media platform if he should step down from leading the company. Musk shared a poll to his Twitter account Sunday night asking his users if he should leave his position as head of the social media platform.

“Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll,” Musk wrote.

The poll ended on Monday morning after 24 hours since it was published. Over 17 million users voted in the poll, which found that a majority of people said they believed Musk should step down as head of the social media company.

The poll from Musk comes after he triggered liberals on Sunday and he did not have to say a word to do it.

The CEO was spotted making a surprise appearance at the World Cup final and he was spotted with former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

And he was busy sharing videos of the event on his platform during the game.


And liberals were furious about his appearance with Kushner.


It comes after Musk decided to bring back journalists he suspended for reporting on the flight information of his private jet.

It was last week when Musk said that the suspended accounts had violated the Twitter Terms of Service by sharing the information.

The CEO shared a poll on Twitter asking f the suspended journalists should be reinstated “now” or “in seven days” and with 58.7 percent of those who responded answering that the accounts should be reinstated immediately he decided to honor it.

“The people have spoken. Accounts who doxxed my location will have their suspension lifted now,” he said
