FBI censored Hunter Biden laptop story on Facebook and other social media in election intervention

Aug. 26, 2022, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to Facebook Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s admission the Joe Rogan show that Facebook censored the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020 in response to an FBI warning about it being Russian disinformation:

“Facebook Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s admission on the Joe Rogan show that his platform censored information about Hunter Biden’s laptop in advance of the 2020 presidential election is proof that the FBI directly and intentionally flipped the election to Joe Biden.  Polls of Biden voters taken after the election revealed that if they were aware of facts contained in the laptop, they would not have voted for now President Biden.

“With everything we now know about the FBI, their leadership and their willingness to use their power to manipulate and game the U.S. election system, the only question that remains is if they should have to register with the FEC as the enforcement arm of the Democratic National Committee.  It is impossible to reconcile today’s FBI with the once guaranteed rights Americans used to take for granted.  Congress must recognize that Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. doesn’t work there anymore and take action now to begin the dismantling this Agency that has turned into a civil liberties nightmare.”
