FBI Official Admits Agency Colluded Weekly With Facebook To Flag, Take Down Posts
Daily Caller ^ | ALEXA SCHWERHA

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) met weekly with large social media platforms to collaborate on moderating content, according to a deposition this week from FBI Supervisory Special Agent Elvis Chan.

Chan, who was one of the two FBI agents who contacted Facebook ahead of its censoring of the Hunter Biden laptop warning of potential Russian disinformation operations, said that the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF) and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) officials met weekly with social media companies to remove specific accounts ahead of the 2020 presidential election, according to his deposition cited by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt. The deposition was part of a lawsuit filed against the Biden administration for allegedly censoring Americans’ speech in the name of “misinformation” led by Schmitt and Republican Attorney General Jeff Landry of Louisiana.

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.

“Since filing our lawsuit, we’ve uncovered troves of discovery that show a massive censorship enterprise,” Schmitt told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Now we’re deposing top government officials, and we’re one of the first to get a look under the hood – the information we’ve uncovered through those depositions has been shocking to say the least.”

Trump recognizes we are in the midst of a Constitutional crises.

The Constitution was set aside to get Biden elected.

Fully half of the population had their 1st amendment rights removed by the government.

Only a democrat would label an election as being unconstitutional.

I’m pretty sure the MSM wants to see this as a sort of “spat” — if they see it at all.

But this does seem like a real Constitutional crisis. We have an illegitimate government. Is that a big deal? I guess it depends on who you ask.

So the FIB had enough time to collude weekly while not having time to pursue Antifa, ISIS or other terrorists and several mentally ill shooters whom they “had on their radar in the past” but didn’t stop in time to save citizens’ lives?

Wasn’t the FBI, a long time ago, an organization that had mostly conservative patriotic special agents who arrested Soviet spies and bank robbers?

Efram Zimbalist Jr. would be saddened by today’s FBI.

When did the FBI veer so far to the left? And why?

Forgot one more: The FIB has time for weekly collusion but had no spare time to look for the bomber who left bombs in two places in DC before the Jan.6 demonstrations? Just forgot all about this a day later? Why? To cover for a pal?

At what point do FBI agents get indicted? And by whom?

<>Trump recognizes we are in the midst of a Constitutional crises.<>

Like no other man, PDJT knows.

It’s time for him to realize the rigged and corrupt legal and electoral systems will never stand down. The Party will never relinquish power unless We the People stand up.

He should lead the Article V COS charge to flank The Party, do an end run around DC and begin the renewal of Free Government.

Yes, this country is screwed. I’ve been saying that since the 2020 election fraud, burning down cities, and wide open borders inviting people to come here and commit terrorism… which will come.

TALKING POINTS

CURRENT WALMART PRESIDENT IS DOUG MCKINNON

<><>I am shocked, and, moreover, extremely angry, to learn Walmart president Penner
colluded with a ne’er do well crackhead Hunter Biden to interfere in a US presidential election.

<><>It is shocking to learn that a Walmart president was even willing to use violence to stop an opposition candidate.

<><>Walmart shoppers are hard working people who, as Americans, possess a sacred right to vote that you would wantonly abrogate.
.

<><>This is more proof that the 2020 election was illegal.

<><>Walmart aided and abetted Fraudulent Conveyance of Services and should be so charged.

Unless there is a speedy trial and incarcerations, nothing will come of these findings.

Remember the famous saying: “At this point, what difference does it make.”

There is proof of FBI, MSM, and social media companies collusion in the 2020 election unlike the alledged Russian collusion in the 2016 election.

Because of the FBI, representative of the Deep State (which includes McConnell, Graham, etc.), the United States’ energy policy is financing the Ukraine/Russian War. The FBI/Deep State along with MSM is responsible for electing The Biden Crime Family into the White House. That unprecedented election meddling is leading the country and the world into a financial crises and who knows what else.

”In your face” is our communist masters' favorite tool to rattle the chains of tyranny that they have wrapped around our necks...

No Big Deal!
Our communist masters know that the pathetically servile and indolent Aamerican people will just continue to roll over and spread their collective cheeks...

The Aamerican people now understand that the First Amendment calls for them to:
Bow down!... Obey!... Snitch!...

The Gestapo is alive and well, disguising itself as a law enforcement agency.
