Elon Musk Says He Will Release the Full Truth About Twitter's Suppression of Hunter Biden Laptop Story at 5pm
Delayed Until 5:50 (Or Later)

Elon Musk's account.

While we wait, Missouri's AG -- and incoming Senator -- Eric Schmitt got to depose alleged FBI Agent Elvis Chan, who attempted to avoid the deposition. He had his lawyer argue that a tech company representative said that he wasn't a censor, so why bother deposing him?

This liar knew he had material information crucial to the lawsuit -- but he had his lawyer lie to protect him from giving information.

That lie didn't work. Schmitt reports:

BREAKING: In our deposition of FBI agent Elvis Chan on Tuesday, we found that the FBI plays a big role in working with social media companies to censor speech - from weekly meetings with social media companies ahead of the 2020 election to asks for account takedowns.


Chan, the FBI's FITF, and senior CISA officials had meetings with social media companies in the lead-up to the 2020 election, in which Chan personally told the social media companies that there could potentially be a Russian "hack and leak" operation shortly before the election.

Thus setting the pretext for the "Laptop is disinformation" lie. Remember, the FBI already had the laptop in its possession and knew that it was likely to leak.

Those meetings were initially quarterly, then monthly, then weekly heading into the 2020 election.

Chan stated that the FBI regularly sent social media companies lists of URLs and social media accounts that should be taken down because they were disinformation from "malign foreign influence operations." The FBI then inquired whether the platforms have taken down the content.

On many occasions, the platforms took down the accounts flagged by the FBI.

In their complaint, the GOP AGs noted an Aug. 26 podcast episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience," in which Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated that "the FBI basically came to us" and told Facebook to be "on high alert" relating to "a lot of Russian propaganda." Zuckerberg added that the FBI said "there's about to be some kind of dump... that's similar to that, so just be vigilant."

As noted in the complaint, Zuckerberg stated, "If the FBI... if they come to us and tell us we need to be on guard about something, then I want to take that seriously." Zuckerberg said he could not recall if the FBI specifically flagged the Hunter Biden laptop story as Russian disinformation, but said that the story "basically fit the pattern" that the FBI had identified.

"On information and belief, the FBI's reference to a 'dump' of information was a specific reference to the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop, which was already in the FBI's possession," the complaint said.

According to the complaint, pursuant to a third-party subpoena, Meta identified the FBI's Foreign Interference Task Force and Chan as involved in the communications between the FBI and Meta that led to Facebook's suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.

A Louisiana federal judge ordered Chan's deposition on Nov. 14. "Chan had authority over cybersecurity issues for the FBI in the San Francisco, California region which includes the headquarters of major social-media platforms and played a critical role for the FBI in coordinating with social-media platforms related to censorship," Judge Terry A. Doughty wrote in his court order.

"Even if Chan played no role in the Hunter Biden laptop communication issue, he may have knowledge of who did, and his deposition is nonetheless warranted," the judge said. "If Chan played no role in the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story, then such information will be made clear in his deposition."
