On Tuesday, a conservative legal group, America First Legal (AFL), announced they are suing the FBI for allegedly concealing communications between the agency and big tech companies, including Facebook.
This legal group, spearheaded by former Trump White House advisor Stephen Miller, is specifically attacking communications regarding information posted online about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, President Biden’s son.
This was a Fox News Exclusive.
“The AFL filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in a Washington, D.C., federal court stating that the FBI is violating the law by failing to publicize its communications with Facebook and other Big Tech companies.”
“FOIA lawsuit specifically said that Tech companies worked with the agency to ‘censor news and information’ about Hunter Biden’s laptop immediately before the 2020 presidential election.”
The lawsuit states, “The evidence is that the FBI and Big Tech, including Facebook, colluded to interfere with the 2020 Presidential election first by falsely and maliciously labeling the laptop ‘Russian disinformation’ and then by censoring and/or discrediting all news about its contents.”
“Now, barely a month before the 2022 midterm election, FBI officials continue to suppress information of great interest to American voters and stonewall AFL’s request for records relating to the FBI’s collusive scheme with Facebook to censor news and information about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop,” the lawsuit continues.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted on Joe Rogan’s podcast that his company censored news articles about Hunter Biden after the FBI reached out ahead of the 2020 election.
The FBI responded to Zuckerberg’s interview by saying, “The FBI routinely notifies U.S. private sector entities, including social media providers, of potential threat information, so that they can decide how to better defend against threats.”
“The evidence is that during the 2020 Presidential election campaign, the FBI conspired and combined with large corporations, including Facebook, to censor and suppress the damning evidence of Biden family corruption and influence peddling found on Hunter Biden’s laptop,” AFL’s senior counselor and director of oversight Reed Rubinstein told Fox News Digital.
“This was done to help Joe Biden and the Democrats win the 2020 election. Now, arrogantly disregarding the law, the FBI is stonewalling AFL’s efforts to expose the FBI’s emails detailing the tradecraft behind this collusive attack on our elections, and identifying the persons inside and outside of government who were responsible for it,” Rubinstein continued.
In Congress Senators Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ron Johnson, R-Wis., called on Facebook in August to turn over communications between government agencies and Facebook employees regarding Hunter Biden.
