Files showing Twitter’s suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal were released on the social media giant today thanks to Elon Musk.

The documents include internal Twitter emails appearing to show staffers censoring tweets at the behest of the Joe Biden 2020 presidential campaign.

Weeks ahead of the election in October 2020, Twitter prevented sharing of a story about Hunter’s involvement with a Chinese oil giant – and his then-presidential candidate father Joe Biden’s potential slice of a multi-million-dollar deal with the foreign firm.

Emails between Twitter staffers show them censoring people sharing the story, including the White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, citing their ‘hacked materials policy’.

Elon Musk, the billionaire owner of Twitter, gave journalist Matt Taibbi access to the explosive documents, which he began to publish excerpts of on the social media site on Friday evening.

Twitter also allegedly used blocks in an attempt to halt the spread of the story, published in October 2020 weeks before the election, including tactics usually reserved for preventing the sharing of child porn.

Amid the scramble to limit sharing of the New York Post’s Hunter story, Taibbi claimed emails showed Dorsey intervening multiple times to question the censorship.

The journalist also added that he had not seen any evidence that the federal government had a role in suppressing the story.

However, in a recent interview with Joe Rogan, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg admitted that his company received a briefing from the FBI ahead of the 2020 election warning of disinformation campaigns.

The briefing led to Facebook being on high alert for Russian propaganda – which Hunter’s laptop was initially tarred as by top former intelligence officials, until DailyMail.com proved it was real.
