    Has anyone been keeping tabs on the release of the Twitter files? Elon Musk is releasing confidential Twitter files connected to the systemic censorship, that occurred at Twitter, before he took over. The insider view was all recorded in the executive data archives that came with the company. The first installment came out on Friday, Dec 2.

    The first installment was connected to the censorship of the Hunter Biden Laptop story. It appears members of the FBI used the tired old Russian Disinformation scam to give cover for the censorship. Executive at Twitter had no problem following the lead, tampering with the 2020 election by the censorship and its own Russian centric misinformation campaign.

    This Twitter bombshell news story may be silenced on Left wing media, since it is look in the mirror to those who also participated. You may need to go outside, the pen, to get the first and future installments.

    I'm not in the habit of giving much attention to partisan melodrama, so I haven't been following this "bombshell story." The collection of buzzwords above also leads me to believe that, much like a lot of the partisan rhetoric that has come out of the US in recent years, this whole story is either a controversy-fueled publicity stunt or a molehill made into a mountain by vocal ideologues.

    There's always something from "Swift Boat Veterans" to Obama's birth certificate and now the laptop.. As far as I'm concerned it's always gaslighting. As far as I'm concerned, whatever Musk has to say is fake news at best turning a molehill into a supposed mountain.

    @Debater Slayer and I were of "one mind" about molehills and mountains.

    What you fail to remember is that everything about the Hunter Biden laptop sounded like a fraud when it came out just before the election, Twitter and the news media had every reason to be very skeptical of what quite likely could have been Russian propaganda, especially given the involvement of know frauds like Rudy Guiliani, just because they are now saying its an authentic story does not mean that the media etc were not correct in assuming it was probably a fake story in the beginning. IF the media was required to publish every suspicious story that came their way our ability to get to the truth would be lost

    There's just something about a random computer repair guy giving Guiliani a laptop from a nondescript person containing international secrets against the Bidens that just sounds absolutely ridiculous.

    You can Google the Twitter Files and there are many links that show up. I will give you the CNN link;

    Musk releases "Twitter Files" about platform's inner workings | CNN Business

    CNN Business reported the news, but it did not comment on the story, either way. They are trying to create a new image of not being biased, but they still have their own role in the original disinformation. You can get more details at FOX, but I knew a link to any Conservative outlet would be spun in a defensive way. I am not on Twitter but I assume they will have more exclusive content.

    I think it interesting the CNN Business broke the story. Maybe the spin masters have decided to treat this story as a business stunt, to capture market share. Genuine dirty laundry may become popular.

    Yes, I did a Google search and a number of links came up. I may look at them later, although I'll wait a while and see what unfolds before drawing any real conclusions here.

    As I recall all this nonsense there were many media organizations that would not repeat the disinformation coming from dubious sources about the laptop. That is ethical. The big right wing gripe is that these companies would not repeat the story that right wingers were reporting. This still seems to be the case.

    Spin masters? More conspiracy theory nonsense. Look at poor quality media sources to pull crap like this. As for CNN Business, well they still have reporters and one of them had a scoop. They will take that opportunity like any other organization. There is a lot of pride in being the first to report breaking news.

    The problem is the Democrats ran the Mueller investigation, which was about the claims of Russian Collusion and Russian Disinformation. This was investigated by 20 Democrat lawyers, who could not find any proof, even with no due process push back; no Republicans on the team.

    I was surprised the FBI, who was part of the spying on Trump, and fake dossier scam, went back to that same debunked well, once again. That gave it away for me. They should have used a new excuse to censor. My guess is they were caught off guard by the authenticity and had to act quickly to suppress the truth. The truth would have impacted the election. Now we get to see how a wide range of biased people conspired.

    Do you really believe the BS you are peddling, there was no such thing as 20 Democrat lawyers working for Mueller, it was obviously bipartisan, even if there were more democrats investigating

    If anyone has been keeping up with the Twitter files, an interesting revelation was that the FBI had the laptop for over a year before the FBI came to Twitter to ask for censorship. The FBI had enough time to verify the laptop as real, yet they sold this as Russian Disinformation to Twitter. It is hard to believe the FBI was that incompetent for that long. What were they covering up and for whom? Now even Left wing news is verifying what was know before the election.

    It also turns out that the FBI came to Twitter a few weeks before the laptop story was released. The excuses being offered by people on the Left is there was not enough time to think this through so they went on the side of caution. Now we know this excuse does not fit the timeline. Twitter had two weeks to think, while everyone was still in the dark. Not all executives at Twitter went along, as they debated this.

    The timeline also suggests that members of the FBI figured out the laptop was real and were doing damage control for Biden, while top members of Twitter were more than eager to go along with the deception. This shows collusion between members of the US government and Twitter. This cabal may have also broken spying laws, since how did the FBI know the the story was going to press in advance? Government side details will come out in January during the investigations.

    This dynamics is very similar to the Russian Collusion scam the FBI did, when Obama was President and Biden was the Vice President. There was spying and a large disinformation campaign. Loyalties seem to run deep; more spying, shadow banding and a disinformation campaigning.

    This January the hard questions of whether Biden has been compromised by his family business dealing will be explored. This was done to Trump. What comes around will go around.

    The numbers were 13 Registered Democrat Lawyers and the rest claiming no political affiliation. Only Mueller was a Republican. This was not exactly balanced in terms of half from each party on the research teams; checks and balance. However, in the end this was all part of a hunting expedition and theater and not a fact finding exercise.

    One thing that may have changed had there been some partisan Republican Lawyers, would be the connection to Hillary Clinton, the DNC and the fake dossier would be in the report. This original scam was the pretense to get things heading to the Mueller investigation. This was not included in the partisan Mueller report, even though all was started by this.

    The analogy is someone lights a fire, and you try to put it out and are blamed for the fire. The circumstantial evidence points to you since you are there. There is no investigation of your claim Hillary lit the fire, even though this was common knowledge. It was not put in the report. Republican worlds not have allowed that coverup; was main source of Foreign interference. I am happy justice is starting to be served.

    What?! Sounds perfectly reasonable to me. Who wouldn't put their trust into Giuliani?
