An FBI official whom Republicans claim was directly involved in advising social media companies to clamp down on the Hunter Biden laptop story, is reportedly still advising Big Tech firms on disinformation, despite the story ultimately proving accurate.

Widely regarded as a potential election game changer, the New York Post story, which included damaging information on the Biden family recovered from the personal laptop of now-first son Hunter Biden, was heavily throttled by social media giants. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the FBI was directly involved in warning them about potential disinformation campaigns ahead of the 2020 presidential election. The story was ultimately verified, but not before President Joe Biden won the election.

Attorneys general from Louisiana and Missouri previously identified FBI Foreign Influence Task Force section chief Laura Dehmlow as an involved party in the briefing of Facebook on disinformation, per the Washington Examiner. Leaked notes from a later briefing with social media and financial executives revealed that Dehmlow is still providing briefings and advice to establishment entities on such matters.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Cybersecurity Advisory Committee and the Protecting Critical Infrastructure from Misinformation and Disinformation Subcommittee met on March 1 to receive a briefing from Dehmlow “regarding the FBI’s roles and responsibilities in combating foreign influence,” the leaked meeting notes, obtained by The Intercept, read.

“Ms. Dehmlow was asked to provide her thoughts or to define a goal for approaching MDM [misinformation and disinformation] and she mentioned ‘resiliency.’ She stated we need a media infrastructure that is held accountable; we need to educate the populace; and that today, critical thinking seems to be a problem,” they continued.

The news comes amid reports that the Department of Homeland Security met regularly with Twitter and Facebook to provide guidance on censorship efforts.

Twitter, Facebook routinely met with DHS on censorship: report

Investigative journalist Lee Fang posted screenshots of text messages between tech executives discussing such meetings.

Social media giants Twitter and Facebook were reportedly attending regular meetings with the Department of Homeland Security  (DHS) to discuss censorship on a host of sensitive topics, documents leaked to The Intercept reveal.

Investigative journalist Lee Fang posted screenshots of text messages between tech executives discussing such meetings and expressing interest in working more closely with government on censoring “misinformation.”

Citing an Inspector General report, The Intercept noted that big tech executives attended “weekly teleconferences to coordinate Intelligence Community activities to counter election-related disinformation.” Fired Twitter executive Vijaya Gadde was one of the regular attendees of such meetings, the documents revealed. Fang also highlighted one Microsoft executive’s text expressing a desire that the social media platforms “get more comfortable” with government following one such digital gathering.

The outlet further highlighted the apparent normalization of the reporting process to government, pointing to extant domains for submitting takedown requests.

“There is also a formalized process for government officials to directly flag content on Facebook or Instagram and request that it be throttled or suppressed through a special Facebook portal that requires a government or law enforcement email to use,” The Intercept noted. “At the time of writing, the ‘content request system’ at facebook.com/xtakedowns/login is still live.”

The report follows revelations from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg that the FBI had pressured the platform to throttle the Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

Twitter, meanwhile, may be poised to change its relationship with the government following Elon Musk’s takeover of the company, with the billionaire having vowed to curtail the platform’s censorship practices.

  1. I remember this same outline in the 2016 election regarding Hillary’s hard drive, alternative email addresses, Obama’s alternative email addresses and James Comey coming out against Hillary Clinton for those 2 minutes.
    It’s a wonder we ever got any of these truths when big tech was so divisive in keeping it from us.
    Providence smiles upon humanity at the most opportune times.
