The 2020 Election and FBI Interference (1 Viewer)

We did? Do tell…
  • The computer repair shop owner calls the FBI in the Summer of 2019 about Hunter's laptop. They aren't interested, which is fishy as hell, especially considering there's been an open DOJ investigation into Hunter's tax affairs since 2018.
  • Later that Fall Trump gets impeached, and suddenly the FBI is interested Hunter's laptop. FBI agents from Albuquerque contacted the shop owner in October 2019, as impeachment proceedings were ongoing in Washington, to discuss the laptop. A few weeks later, FBI agents in Delaware seized the original laptop.
  • So the FBI has the laptop in December 2019.
  • According to whistleblower claims made public two days ago by Sen. Ron Johnson, FBI officials told agents not to investigate first son Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop for months — vowing that the bureau was “not going to change the outcome of the election again.”
  • There are other whistleblower allegations alleging that in August, 2020, FBI supervisory intelligence analyst Brian Auten opened an assessment, which was used by a team of agents at FBI headquarters to improperly discredit and falsely claim that derogatory information about Biden’s activities was disinformation, causing investigative activity and sourcing to be shut down.
  • The FBI either did or did not investigate the Hunter laptop prior to the October 14, 2020 NY Post bombshell. Either way they are corrupt or inept:
    1. If they didn't investigate it, then they were derelict for a few reasons. One, Hunter was being investigated for tax issues and business dealings since 2018. Two, they had to have known that Rudy G. and Tony Bobuliski had a copy of the hard drive and were going to drop their bombshell in a couple days. Three, the FBI knew as early as December 2019 that Hunter Biden believed Russians had stolen his other laptop, which he believed made him vulnerable to blackmail because of compromising evidence on the laptop combined with his father’s presidential ambitions.
    2. If they did investigate it, they certainly knew it was legitimate. The Washington Post was able to do so in a few days using forensic analysis.
  • The FBI warned Zuckerberg about a Russian disinformation on October 13, 2020. The next day the NY Post dropped the laptop bombshell, and a few days after that Tony Bobulinski came forward with his allegations. Coincidence? I think it's naive to think so.

Appreciate all the words you typed however waiting to hear where the FBI is corrupt. Also - your timeline is misleading on a number of fronts especially the comment that the Washington Post verified that it was authentic.

Stating that you don’t like Trump while continuing to post nonstop a bunch of whataboutisms really doesn’t make your claims believable IMO but who knows. It sucks that the man who is the face of the party you support is going to prosecuted for a number of high level crimes against our country - I get it - I’d hate to be lumped in with that group as well.
I voted for Biden. I hate Trump, but you know what I hate more? A politicized justice system. And we clearly have that today. You’re not concerned because, well, sidez. I don’t play sides. I call it as I see it.

So is it corrupt or politicized or both or neither? Sorry but having trouble keeping up with the direction we’re trying to go with this.

Not concerned because ‘sidez’? What side am I on again exactly? In all my times of voting I’ve voted the person, not the party. Do I despise Trump - absolutely - if that means I’m on a side, so be it.

Nice. 🤙. Apologies for getting that wrong. Your voting history is almost identical to mine, except I voted for Obama twice and Trump instead of Clinton (big regret there). I have voted for the winner in every election in my life. 5 Democrats and 4 Republicans.

I usually vote based on the 2 or 3 biggest issues I see in the country. Right now my top 3 are close together. My #1 issue is Trump. We can’t afford another 4 years of him. My #2 is the economy, and #3 is the Far Left and their bias influence in education, the MSM, and now apparently the FBI. Right now it looks like Desantis will be my choice, and a potential winner as he is currently tied with Trump as the Vegas favorite.

Gun regulation got passed over?

ETA: sorry, didn't see RC's post.
Yeah, gun control is right there as well.

Gotcha. I see too much of Trump in Desantis, so I am surprised to see you lean that way as much as you dislike Trump. I will admit I don't know a ton about him, and I am not looking to any D or R in 2024, so take my comment with that in mind.

Believe me, I'm not crazy about Desantis. He reminds me of a high school bully.

They raided Veritas with a warrant. The rest of the above is bullspit, brought to you by those enabling a conman/grifter.

Has this thread discussed how Meta themselves have responded to the hot take in the OP and vigorously denied it? Because that happened.

Hmmmm. At the exact time I was being ridiculed in here on Friday, the FBI agent who slow played the Hunter Biden laptop investigation, and was one of the agents at the heart of Sen.Grassley’s whistle-blower allegations - suddenly “resigned” and was seen being escorted out of the Washington Field Office. Just another crazy coincidence. Nothing to see here. 😆

Bat signal going out to the Liberal Source Cops.

Former DNI John Radcliffe was on tucker tonight and he brought up an interesting point. He said that at the time of the alleged FBI “warning,” Radcliffe had been working with FBI leadership and they were all on board that the laptop was not Russian dissing information. And if you go back you’ll see that Radcliffe had issued a statement to that effect a few days after the New York Post story had broken, and a couple days after that the FBI issued a statement saying they had nothing to add to what Radcliffe had said. So the “warning” Zuckerberg received must have came from the lower ranks of the fbi, and fbi leadership may not have even been aware of it.

A few selections from Ratcliffe’s Wikipedia page, a helpful reminder of who Ratcliffe is and what he stands for and how those who are skeptical about what Ratcliffe says about national security matters got there:

“during his tenure as DNI, Ratcliffe was regarded as using the DNI to score political points for Trump. Ratcliffe made public assertions that contradicted the intelligence community's own assessments, and sidelined career officials in the intelligence community….

Ratcliffe has little experience in national security or national intelligence and is reported to have demonstrated little engagement on the matters as a congressman. Trump's intent to nominate Ratcliffe became controversial when he was found to have misrepresented his role in prosecuting terrorism and immigration cases….

Ratcliffe is well known for criticizing the FBI and the special counsel investigation as being biased against Trump. Ratcliffe has also alleged that Russian interference may have benefited Trump's 2016 rival candidate Hillary Clinton more than it benefited Trump. American intelligence agencies, the Senate Intelligence Committee and Robert Mueller have maintained that Russia interfered to help Trump. A week before Trump's announcement, Ratcliffe had argued that the special counsel investigation put Trump "below the law" because it declined to exonerate Trump. Later, Ratcliffe claimed on Fox News that the special counsel investigation's report was not written by special counsel Robert Mueller, but by "Hillary Clinton’s de facto legal team".…

Thirty-five days before the November 2020 election, Ratcliffe declassifed 2016 Russian disinformation that asserted Hillary Clinton had personally approved a scheme to associate Trump with Vladimir Putin and Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee. Ratcliffe provided the disinformation to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, who publicly released it. The allegation had been previously rejected as baseless by the Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee. Ratcliffe acknowledged in a letter to Graham that the intelligence community "does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication." The intelligence community opposed the release of the information. According to the New York Times, Ratcliffe's disclosure "appeared to be a bid to help Mr. Trump politically."

Ratcliffe diverged from remarks prepared by the intelligence community regarding attempted election interference by Iran in the 2020 election. Ratcliffe said that the election interference was intended to "damage President Trump."
