WASHINGTON, DC- It’s about time. Fox News reports that a conservative legal group is suing the FBI for suppressing communications between the agency and big tech companies, including Facebook, in an effort to suppress information posted online about the Hunter Biden laptop, ostensibly in an effort to protect the sitting president, Joe Biden.

America First Legal (AFL), led by former Trump White House advisor Stephen Miller filed a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act in Washington, D.C. federal court last week.

In that suit, they allege that the FBI is in violation of the law by failing to report its communications with Facebook and other big tech companies in an effort to “censor news and information about Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 presidential election,” Fox reported.

That suppression of that story—otherwise known as real election interference—is credited in part with Biden being able to pull out narrow victories in swing states which threw the election. The American people are now paying for that election interference in myriad ways.

This past August, AFL submitted a FOIA request asking the FBI to publicize its communications with Facebook between Oct. 1 and Nov. 15, 2020.

Last week, the FBI responded, calling the request “overly broad” and refusing to provide the requested information. As a result of the FBI raising that roadblock, AFL moved forward with filing a lawsuit to receive the requested information.

According to the lawsuit:

The evidence is that the FBI and Big Tech, including Facebook, colluded to interfere with the 2020 Presidential election by first falsely and maliciously labeling the laptop “Russian disinformation” and then by censoring and/or discrediting all news about its contents.

Now, barely a month before the 2022 midterm election, FBI officials continue to suppress information of great interest to American voters and stonewall AFL’s request for records relating to the FBI’s collusive scheme with Facebook to censor news and information about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

The laptop contained a bevy of information which detailed Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings and the apparent knowledge of them by Joe Biden, despite his repeated denials to that fact.

The laptop also detailed Hunter Biden’s nefarious business dealings with China and other foreign nations, including Ukraine, and has also gotten the attention of Congressional Republicans.

Hunter Biden is also subject to a federal investigation into his taxes, foreign lobbying violations, and a possible felony involving an application on a federal firearms form, a felony.

In fact, Facebook, now going by the name Meta, saw its CEO Mark Zuckerberg actually admit that the company actively censored news articles about Hunter Biden’s laptop after the FBI reached out to that company and others, such as Twitter, with the false claim that Russia may be spreading disinformation about Joe Biden and his family.

This served to give cover to Biden even though the FBI had little if any proof that the laptop was indeed phony. In fact, the FBI had possession of the laptop at that time.

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), in August called on Facebook to release communications between federal agencies and the company regarding Hunter Biden.

Grassley and Johnson are also demanding the FBI order the agents who provided Facebook and the other social media companies with an “unnecessary” briefing in August 2020 alleging “Russian disinformation” appear before the Senate for a transcribed interview.

At that time, Grassley and Johnson were working on a joint investigation into Hunter Biden’s role at Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings as well as his “extensive and complex financial transactions.”

Fox News Digital reached out to the FBI for comment on the lawsuit, however they did not immediately respond.

The Biden administration, knee deep in corruption on multiple levels, has long called the Hunter Biden laptop disinformation, however intelligence officials have said going back to October 2020 that neither the laptop nor any materials on it are part of an organized disinformation campaign.

“The evidence is that during the 2020 Presidential election campaign, the FBI conspired and combined with large corporations, including Facebook, to censor and suppress the damning evidence of Biden family corruption and influence peddling found on Hunter Biden’s laptop,” AFL’s senior counselor and director of oversight Reed Rubenstein told Fox News Digital.

“This was done to help Joe Biden and the Democrats win the 2020 election. Now, arrogantly disregarding the law, the FBI is stonewalling AFL’s efforts to expose the FBI’s emails detailing the tradecraft behind this collusive attack on our elections, and identifying the persons inside and outside of government who were responsible for it,” Rubenstein continued.

Hopefully, Biden doesn’t unleash a bunch of armed FBI agents on America First Legal’s offices or officials. That’s kind of how things go with this administration.

LOOK BACK

The following contains editorial content which is the opinion of the author, a staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

Remember when Joe Biden said during the campaign against President Trump that the abandoned laptop reported at the time by the New York Post was a “Russian disinformation” campaign?

We are now finding out that Biden had good reason to issue what is now known to be a complete fabrication in making such an allegation. And then as now, everything centered around Ukraine, The Federalist reports.

Last Friday, the Daily Mail reported that emails recovered from crackhead Hunter’s laptop reveal he had helped an infectious disease research company pursue projects in that Eastern European country.

In fact, those emails confirm in some manner allegations made by Russia the previous day, noting that an investment group run by Hunter Biden funded a company conducting research at biological labs in Ukraine.

It has long been thought by some that the shenanigans engaged in by Hunter Biden, taking advantage of his father’s role as vice president, would come back and haunt the United States.

In fact, President Trump had warned during a 60 Minutes interview that the laptop abandoned in a Delaware repair shop posed national security concerns, but those claims were dismissed outright by CBS News’ Leslie Stahl.

Only weeks before the November 2020 election, the Post published emails obtained from Hunter Biden’s laptop which he “forgot” (likely in a crack stupor) at the computer repair shop. Those emails showed that during Biden’s term as vice president, Hunter had engaged in a pay-to-play scandal, using his father’s power and influence to strike deals with key players not only in Ukraine, but also in China.

Among those emails was one in which Joe Biden was listed as “the Big Guy,” who was set to receive a 10 percent cut of one of the deals Hunter was working on, and another where Hunter claimed that “pop”—the family nickname for Joe Biden—took half of his earnings.

Furthermore, when a former business partner of Hunter Biden’s—Tony Bobulinski—confirmed the authenticity of the emails, the mainstream media and tech tyrants buried the story, with social media companies such as Twitter and Facebook censoring the story. In fact, Twitter kicked the New York Post off the platform until they agreed to remove the story.

To make matters worse, “more than 50 former senior intelligence officials”—including disgraced Obama-era officials John Brennan, Leon Panetta, and James Clapper—signed a letter which called the Hunter Biden emails “Russian disinformation.”

By signing the letter, which Biden famously bragged about during one of his debates with Trump, it gave Biden cover to lie to the American people, which he gladly did when Trump confronted him about it.

“Are you saying the laptop is now another Russia, Russia, Russia hoax?” Trump asked Biden during the debate.

“That’s exactly what [I] was told,” Biden replied. “There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what he’s accusing me of is a Russian plant,” Biden said, furthering the lie to the American people, perpetrating the lie long enough to get himself elected by an ignorant electorate.

Now, miraculously, the New York Times finally took off their blinders and admitted the truth and confessed both the laptop and the emails were legitimate.

That admission proved significant, at least initially because it appeared to further legitimatize the information gleaned from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. However the scandal elevated to a whole other level last week after the Daily Mail released the information they uncovered.

With that release, things went from bad to really bad.

“Emails from Hunter’s abandoned laptop show he helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases that could be used as bioweapons,” the Daily Mail said last week.

Continuing, the article read:

“[Biden] also introduced Metabiota to an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma, for a ‘science project’ involving high biosecurity level labs in Ukraine. And although Metabiota is ostensibly a medical data company, its vice president emailed Hunter in 2014 describing how they could ‘assert Ukraine’s cultural and economic independence from Russia’—an unusual goal for a biotech firm.”

The Daily Mail  further expanded on Metabiota and crackhead Hunter’s involvement in brokering relationships for that company in Ukraine. The article contained a number of copies of emails obtained from the laptop which confirmed the Mail’s reporting.

In addition, the article also included details which shed light on Hunter Biden’s “business” dealings in Ukraine while daddy Joe served not only as vice president, but more specifically as America’s point person on issues related to that nation.

The Daily Mail has been one of the leading media organizations reporting on materials contained on Hunter’s laptop.

For example, last summer it published “unearthed footage” of the younger Biden telling a prostitute that in 2018, another laptop had gone missing and he believed it to be stolen by Russia. He also expressed concern that the information on the laptop could provide “fodder for blackmail” since it contained confidential and “compromising” information.

The Federalist notes there are major differences between the emails addressed in the Daily Mail piece from last week and those published last year, with the most prominent being the timing of the release, only one day after Russia’s State Duma speaker accused Joe Biden of being “involved in the creation of bio laboratories in Ukraine.”

Vyacheslav Volodin claimed “an investment fund [Rosemont Seneca] run by his son Hunter Biden funded research and the implementation of the United States’ military biological program.”

Of course, leftist media soon seized upon Volodin’s claim, with The Telegraph referring to it as an “unsubstantiated claim” which it said was “designed to build on negative coverage about [the] president’s son in Right-wing US media.”

However, with Friday’s release of the previously undisclosed emails from Hunter’s laptop, it seems to give some credence to Russia’s claim concerning Hunter Biden’s ties to Ukrainian biolabs.

The Federalist noted that none of the emails released last week specifically back up Russia’s claim that the labs in Ukraine were used to either research or create bioweapons. However, for propaganda purposes, only a “sliver of truth” is needed “to serve its purpose.”

That is why the emails contained on Hunter Biden’s laptop serve, if nothing else, as enough evidence to provide Putin and Russia the ability to claim Hunter Biden’s potential involvement in developing a bioweapon program in Ukraine. That would also seem to give Russia cover for its attack on the eastern European country.

There is also an important question that needs to be answered. How, the day before the Daily Mail released the information about Rosemont Seneca investing in Metabiota and being involved in that company’s operations in Ukraine, did Russia confirm its suspicions of a biolab in Ukraine?

It has long been suspected in some circles that Putin (and possibly Xi in China) had compromising information on Joe Biden, courtesy of his crackhead son Hunter and his business dalliances facilitated by his father’s position as vice president.

The timing of last week’s events, The Federalist tells us, suggests that Russia either had access to the same emails as the Daily Mail, or did indeed get access to Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2018.

Either way, the apparent corruption of the Biden family as memorialized in the abandoned laptops belonging to Hunter Biden has taken them from a potential national security risk to a real one while at the same time Russia has launched an attack on an Eastern European country bordering countries in NATO.

If you were to take the name Biden and change it to Trump, the mainstream media would be having seizures, Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell would be having multiple orgasms, and Trump would be facing a third impeachment. This is media and political malfeasance on steroids.

If Biden didn’t know how compromised his family was, he should have. If he did, articles of impeachment should be drawn up…immediately. In fact, it is hard to reconcile the fact that Biden was unaware of what his son was up to. There seems to be sufficient evidence indicating he was in fact well aware of it.

Despite that, Biden lied to the American people, aided, and abetted by the so-called “high level” former members of the intelligence community who deliberately lied to the American people when they alleged the laptop was Russian disinformation.

And what of our friends in the FBI? In December 2019, they had access to Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop and should have been well aware that Hunter believed the Russians had stolen his other laptop in the summer of 2018.

There is no evidence, The Federalist notes that the FBI briefed Joe Biden on the national security risks posed by the missing laptops. Worse still is the possibility that the FBI did brief Biden on the risks and yet he ran for president anyway, thus putting our country’s national security and his credibility at risk, with Putin holding all the cards.

The worst, most egregious factor coming out of all of this is the complete malpractice by a majority of the mainstream media and the social media tyrants. Had they done their job and reported this story when they should have, much of the propaganda that Putin may have his hands on would be irrelevant. Instead, we are stuck with Biden as “president” and Putin may be in fact holding all the cards over his cognitively declined head.

Hopefully not, but it doesn’t look good.
