A major issue has come up in the release of the Twitter Files.
One person had a huge motive to keep the public from knowing the truth.
Tucker Carlson exposed the person with the biggest motive to suppress the Twitter Files.
A New York Post reporter told Tucker Carlson that ex-FBI lawyer James Baker had the “biggest motive” to “suppress” the Hunter Biden laptop story on Twitter in 2020.
“It was pretty obvious that the Twitter files that had just been released were missing a crucial element,” Miranda Devine of the New York Post told Carlson. “And that was the FBI. So, we surmised that somehow Elon Musk had redacted it or someone had withheld the information about the FBI.”
Matt Taibbi published documents Friday about Twitter’s actions with regards to an October 2020 report by the New York Post but Baker was in a position to screen the communications given to Taibbi.
“The FBI, we knew, had pre-bunked to the social media platforms our story,” Devine said. “Before it came out, they told them to expect a pile of Russian disinformation and Twitter was told by the FBI that we know from Yoel Roth, to expect that it would be in October and would probably refer to Hunter Biden.
“So we knew that, there had to be something about that at Twitter, and yet there wasn’t in the Twitter files and it was pretty obvious who was suppressing the information, who was the person with the biggest motive, it was Twitter’s top lawyer James Baker, who as you just said had been the top lawyer at the FBI, the quarterback of the FBI-Russia collusion scandal,” Devine continued.
While working for the FBI Baker approved surveillance on a member of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. He joined Twitter after leaving the FBI in June 2020.
“Lo and behold, he shows up in Twitter five months before the 2020 election and lo and behold, one little element did come out in the Twitter Files Friday night,” Devine said. “It was this one email that had the date and time removed from it very peculiarly. But it was from James Baker and it was weighing in on the decision of the morning of Oct. 14th 2020, a few hours after our story came out. And there was James Baker weighing in on the side of censorship, no surprise.”
After Twitter CEO Elon Musk learned of Baker’s previous actions he posted on Twitter, “In light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today.”
