Former President Donald Trump released a statement slamming the FBI and other agencies for colluding with big tech to censor Americans and for violating first amendment rights, with Trump citing the newly revealed Twitter Files in the video.
“The now-famous Twitter Files have proven beyond all doubt that the corrupt officials at the FBI have been coordinating a massive censorship, surveillance, and propaganda campaign against the American people, and quite frankly, me. In a most recent and notorious example, the FBI worked to stop the truth about the Biden family's criminality,” Trump said.
“The fix was in,” he said, “the election was rigged, but the story of the laptop from hell is only the beginning of the story about the weaponization of government against free speech. We must have free speech in our country, we must have a fair and open press.”
In December, Michael Shellenberger, released part seven of the Twitter files, detailing how the FBI, under the lead of FBI Supervisory Special Agent Elvis Chan, “discredited factual information” related to Hunter Biden's overseas business dealings in 2020.
Schellenberer released a 30-tweet thread starting with, “1. TWITTER FILES: PART 7 The FBI & the Hunter Biden Laptop How the FBI & intelligence community discredited factual information about Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings both after and *before* The New York Post revealed the contents of his laptop on October 14, 2020.”
“The new congress should immediately hold hearings to investigate the role of the FBI and other federal agencies in censoring lawful speech. Congressional leaders should issue subpoenas in furtherance of this goal,” Trump continued. “The revelations also highlight why my proposal to end the revolving door between the deep state, and there is a deep state indeed. I wasn't a believer, but everyone is a believer right now, and the tech tyrants, is so important. There must be a seven-year cooling-off period before any employee of these powerful agencies is allowed to take a job at a major platform.
“When I'm president we'll take back our freedoms, and take back our country,” said Trump
