Facebook and Twitter censor Biden bombshells weeks after execs join his transition team
In a 15 October 2020 Breitbart article, we find that Facebook and Twitter executives censored information on Hunter Biden emails shortly after those executives joined the Biden transition team.
Following the publication of the New York Post‘s bombshell story about the Biden family’s business dealings in Ukraine, Facebook and Twitter worked hard to suppress the story across their platforms. The censorship comes just weeks after executives from both firms joined the Biden transition team.
Breitbart News recently reported on the New York Post’s bombshell story that indicated that Joe Biden may have met with an adviser to the board of Burisma while he was Vice President, arranged by his son Hunter, who was working as a lobbyist for the company at the time. Joe Biden has previously said, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”
But, the leaked emails allegedly show that Hunter introduced his father to a Bursima executive less than a year before Biden, acting as Vice President, pressured the Ukrainian government into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company. Shortly after the story broke, many found themselves having trouble sharing it across social media. This censorship comes just weeks after executives from both Facebook and Twitter joined the Biden transition team.
Breitbart News reported in September that Twitter Public Policy Director Carlos Monje left the social media company to join the transition team for Joe Biden. Monje’s specific role on the team has not been made clear and Biden’s transition team reportedly declined to comment on the situation.
Despite a specific role not being named, Monje will reportedly be serving as co-chair of Biden’s infrastructure policy committee and has already helped to host a fundraiser for Biden this week, according to an invitation sent to Politico.
Monje has worked in the world of presidential transition politics in the past, previously serving as the director of agency review on the team that prepared for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s administration, which failed to take flight. Monje also worked on the Obama administration team’s 2008 national security working group according to his LinkedIn profile.
Monje also acted as deputy policy director during Obama’s first run for office and subsequently served as a senior policy advisor and special assistant to the president on the Domestic Policy Council. Monje’s final years in the administration were spent in the Transporation Department before he departed for Twitter.
In October, Breitbart News further reported that Biden’s transition team had hired top Facebook executive Jessica Hertz to its general counsel to oversee ethical issues. The move reportedly came as the campaign struggles with Facebook to have posts by President Trump censored on the platform. This is the second Big Tech executive to join Biden’s campaign. Hertz will reportedly be responsible for “enforcement, oversight, and compliance” of the ethics plan that Biden’s team unveiled this week.
New York Post op-ed editor Sohrab Ahmari was one of the first to note that Twitter was blocking him from posting a link to the Biden-Ukraine story, claiming that the link was “potentially harmful.”

Here we have proof of a propaganda system denying news that hurts Biden and promoting news that hurts Trump
With Facebook and Twitter blocking stories about the Biden emails, a good portion of the nation has not heard of Hunter and Joe Biden’s misdeeds. With Reddit’s initial blocking of the story, numbers who will visit the polls today may remain uninformed.
And the left calls Trump’s followers the next generation of Hitler. They have truly earned the title of Goebbels’ protégés.
Report: Feds had evidence of Joe Biden’s Burisma meeting since Impeachment inquiry
Breitbart also reported that the FBI has held the evidence leaked to the New York Post since 2019.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has reportedly had evidence that former Vice President Joe Biden met with an executive from Burisma introduced by his son, Hunter, since the week in December 2019 when the House impeached the president.
The New York Post reported on Wednesday that an abandoned laptop hard drive contained evidence that Hunter Biden, who sat on the board of the corruption-plagued Ukrainian company, made the introduction to then-Vice President Biden in 2015.
The evidence: an email from Burisma adviser Vadym Pozharskyi thanking Hunter Biden for the “opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together” in Washington, D.C.
Less than a year later, in March 2016, Biden would pressure Ukraine into firing a prosecutor with jurisdiction over investigations into Burisma, threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees.
Joe Biden has denied speaking with his son about his foreign business — a claim his son has contradicted.
The new evidence comes from an abandoned laptop that was left at a Delaware repair shop and seized by the FBI on Dec. 17, 2019 — the day before Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held the vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
The store owner had contacted the FBI, but made copy of the hard drive before yielding it. He later provided that copy to Robert Costello, an attorney for former NewYork City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is an attorney for the president, the Post reported.
The Post also noted that other materials, including family photographs, support the laptop’s relationship to Hunter Biden.
The issue of Joe Biden’s intervention in Ukraine — and his conflict of interest — was crucial to the impeachment.
President Trump had asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into allegations concerning “Biden’s son.” He was then impeached, based on a letter from a “whistleblower” who had not actually heard the call between Trump and Zelensky.
The president claimed he had been acting in the national interest; Democrats alleged he had abused his power to smear a rival.
It is not clear why the FBI never released or acted on the evidence it reportedly seized, which supported Trump’s case.
During the Senate impeachment trial earlier this year, Republicans suggested that they would allow the White House to call Hunter Biden and perhaps Joe Biden as witnesses if Democrats insisted on calling more witnesses than the House had seen.

Wray has a lot of answering to do
With this laptop and its hard drive sitting in the hands of the FBI leadership since the time of the impeachment, there has been enough time for announcements to be made. Therefore, the only conclusion we can draw is that Wray has worked again to subvert justice. He needs to be perp walked.
