Some of the FBI officials who helped suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 election, also donated to Democrats.
Conservatives have become very skeptical of the FBI in recent years and they have good reasons to do so.
It seems to have become a partisan agency.
The New York Post reports:
FBI brass who warned Facebook about Post’s Hunter Biden laptop reporting were Democratic donors: records
Both FBI officials who briefed Facebook before the social media giant opted to censor The Post’s initial reporting on Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop made small-dollar donations to Democrats during the 2020 election cycle, according to campaign finance records and court filings.
An amended complaint released Monday by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s office says Laura Dehmlow, the section chief of the bureau’s Foreign Influence Task Force, and Elvis Chan, who manages the cyber branch of the FBI’s San Francisco field office, were “involved in the communications between the FBI and Meta that led to Facebook’s suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.”
Federal Election Commission records show that Dehmlow and Chan donated a total of $160 to Democrats in 2020. Chan contributed $50 each to Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock for their Georgia Senate runoff campaigns in November of that year, while Dehmlow gave the Democratic National Committee $60 in $10 increments between March 30 and August 30.
The FBI is not doing itself any favors with news like this.
What a news day–FBI agents who warned Facebook to suppress coverage of Hunter Biden laptop identified in new court filing.
