The seventh installment of the “Twitter Files” has a bombshell revelation.
According to The New York Post, a top Twitter executive was in touch with the FBI just hours before the Post broke the Hunter Biden laptop from hell story. So who knew what and when?
From The New York Post:
FBI San Francisco Special Agent Elvis Chan sent 10 documents to Twitter’s former Head of Site Integrity Yoel Roth and at least one other person on the night of Oct. 13 via a special one-way communications channel, according to independent journalist Michael Shellenberger. Chan asked Roth and his colleagues to confirm they had received the documents.
Approximately two-and-a-half hours earlier, Shellenberger went on, Hunter Biden attorney George Mesires had called and emailed Delaware computer repair shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac after learning from The Post the first article based on files recovered from the abandoned laptop would be published the next day.
“I am a lawyer for Hunter Biden and I appreciate you reviewing your records on this matter,” Mesires wrote to Mac Isaac.
It is not clear what was in the documents Chan emailed to Roth, who played a key role in suppressing The Post’s bombshell.
But the timing is uncanny and, as Shellenberger reported, Chan’s action was in keeping with a larger effort by the FBI to squelch speech on the platform in the name of guarding against “foreign interference in elections.”
Roth said three months later in a sworn declaration that the feds had primed him to dismiss reports of the soon-to-be first son’s laptop as a “Russian ‘hack and leak’ operation,” but Chan later admitted under oath that the warnings were overblown, Shellenberger wrote on Twitter Monday.
Musk teased the bombshell revelation on Twitter, saying “Elvis is in the building.”
