A pair of FBI agents tasked with pressuring Meta to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story leading up to the 2020 election were donors to the Democrat Party, according to government records.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted on Joe Rogan’s podcast in August that the FBI approached Facebook just before the Hunter Biden laptop story dropped to be on the lookout for “Russian misinformation.”
An amended lawsuit from Oct. 6 filed by Missouri and Louisiana Attorneys General Eric Schmitt and Jeff Landry revealed that Laura Dehmlow and Elvis Chan were the FBI officials “involved in the communications between the FBI and Meta that led to Facebook’s suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.”
Dehmlow serves as the unit chief for the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF), while Chan heads the FBI’s San Francisco cyber division.
Campaign records from the Federal Election Commission reveal that Dehmlow and Chan donated to the Democrat Party before the 2020 election.
Dehmlow donated a total of $60 to the Democratic National Committee, while Chan donated $50 each to Sens. Jon Ossoff (D-Ga.) and Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) in their runoff elections.
The complaint revealed that Dehmlow delivered a presentation to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)’s Cybersecurity Advisory Committee in March where she “indicated that the FBI’s FITF ‘engages…with appropriate partners for information exchange.’”
“On information and belief, this ‘information exchange’ includes communications with social-media platforms about censorship and/or suppression of social-media speech,” the complaint states.
As for Chan, the complaint also notes that he “has performed a critical role in communicating with social media platforms on behalf of the FBI relating to censorship and suppression of speech on social media.”
Chan even bragged in a podcast in June that his San Francisco office “was very involved in helping to protect the US elections in 2020.”
“We talked with all of these entities I mentioned regularly, at least on a monthly basis. And right before the election, probably on a weekly basis. If they were seeing anything unusual, if we were seeing anything unusual, sharing intelligence with technology companies, with social media companies, so that they could protect their own platforms. That’s where the FBI and the US government can actually help companies,” Chan said.
These revelations further confirm that the FBI interfered in the 2020 election by deploying biased Democrat operatives to ensure that the Hunter Biden story would not damage Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.
After all, FBI whistleblowers revealed to Republican lawmakers last month that Timothy Thibault, the former FBI assistant special agent in charge of the Washington Field Office who left the bureau in August, shut down a line of inquiry into Hunter in October 2020 despite some of the details being known to be true at the time.
Hunter is currently under criminal investigation and reports indicate he could be charged for lying on his taxes and a firearm purchase application, considered to be the less serious crimes compared to others detailed on his laptop.
