President Joe Biden spread the disinformation narrative during the one and only debate he would do with Trump, and he had shared a letter from a 51 intelligence officials aligned with him, saying the laptop story was a Russian disinformation campaign, echoing the 2016 allegations of Russian meddling in the presidential election.
And, this week, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg told “The Joe Rogan Experience” that his Meta platforms throttled down the reach of the laptop story after getting a visit and a warning from the FBI about Russian disinformation.
“The names have changed, but the allegations are the same, that these FBI agents were attempting to influence the outcome of the 2020 election by suppressing derogatory information about Hunter Biden and potentially Joe Biden,” former National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe said this week.
“It is the FBI that is the primary domestic authority for investigating and leading to the prosecution of election influence and election interference. It’s really a problem when the agency that is responsible for investigating those things is engaged in those things.”
