SAN FRANSISCO, CALIFORNIA: FBI has been under fire ever since the news of the agency warning Twitter regarding the hack and leak operations in Hunter Biden case was out. It is said that FBI have constantly warned Twitter about the hacking attacks during the weekly meetings of the company. The revelations were made by Twitter’s former head of site integrity, Yoel Roth.

According to New York Post, Yoel in a declaration to the Federal Election Commission, said: “I was told in these meetings that the intelligence community expected that individuals associated with political campaigns would be subject to hacking attacks and that material obtained through those hacking attacks would likely be disseminated over social media platforms, including Twitter." Further, he stated, "I also learned in these meetings that there were rumors that a hack-and-leak operation would involve Hunter Biden.”

In a podcast with Joe Rogan in August, Mark Zuckerberg claimed that the FBI warned Facebook to be on high alert for a “dump” of “Russian propaganda” before the elections. In October, Facebook also censored the story of The Post on its platform, claiming the pending “fact checks." Meanwhile, the FBI also used the meetings to lobby the social media platforms to change their terms of service to be able to take down “hacked material quickly,” says a source with access to a transcript of Supervisory Special Agent of Big Tech, Elvis Chan.

Chan has also agreed that he had conducted weekly meetings with Facebook and held meetings with seven FBI agents. FBI had also spied on Donald Trump’s then-lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s online cloud, claiming as a part of an investigation on a foreign-agent registration violation. Meanwhile, the FBI also accessed messages with Giuliani in October discussing when The Post would publish the story.

'The FBI is a Joke'

The Internet quickly reacted to the warnings by FBI in the Hunter Biden case. A user said, "Wow. The FBI meddling in our elections.. why do they exist again? The agents involved need to be found and exiled." Another added, "So the @FBI is the Gestapo? If you disagree with this crazy-sounding idea, look up The Enabling Act of 1933 - the very first law Hitler imposed. It’s main purpose was to enable this ability. That is the company you are keeping of you’re somehow not angry about this." A tweet read, "And ppl are still ok with this government… insane!!"

Another added, "As they (somebody) say, "A picture is worth a thousand words!" It's always been right there in living color. The corrupt FBI/DOJ just tried to cover it up. Then fake news tried to cover up the cover-up. Thank God for Elon Musk for having the balls to help America see the truth!." A tweet read, "Seems like FBI belongs to the Democrats." Another user explained, "Our Justice System is a complete disappointment." A user claimed, "Nothing will come of any of this. Would say a fair election in 2024, however, Maury Povich would say “that is a lie.” Another added, "Definitely need to haul the FBI before Congress to discover who was running this operation since they had the laptop and knew it was legit." A tweet stated, "Haven't the FBI been Investigating Hunter for Years now The FBI is a Joke."

A user added, "There is no honest federal law enforcement in the United States." Another explained, "If not the FBI then it would have been the NSA. All these organizations have to be brought down."
