The Hunter Biden laptop continues to be a thorn in the side of the Joe Biden administration and the Democrats. And it’s only just now heating up.
Now the Bidens are panicking after a federal judge handed the FBI this ruling about Hunter Biden.
Founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg ignited controversy when he confessed that the FBI had pressed the business to delete stories about Hunter Biden by spreading false information about Russian disinformation while appearing on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
When U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Doughty agreed to order FBI official Elvis Chan to testify in their lawsuit against the Biden administration for pressuring social media platforms to censor criticism of vaccine mandates and the Hunter Biden laptop story, Attorneys General Eric Schmitt and Jeff Landry won a significant legal victory.
According to National Review:
An FBI official will be deposed in a lawsuit over alleged collusion between the Biden administration and social-media companies to censor speech on topics ranging from Hunter Biden’s laptop to Covid-19, a judge ruled Monday.
The ruling comes in response to a lawsuit by Missouri attorney general Eric Schmitt and Louisiana attorney general Jeff Landry accusing the federal government of working “hand-in-hand with social media companies to censor freedom of speech on their platforms.” The lawsuit has grown to include 67 defendants, including top officials at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the White House, and others.
Last month, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana granted the two states’ request for depositions from several top-ranking governmental officials.
Courts have often decided that the First Amendment is violated if the government exerts pressure on a private actor to restrict information or viewpoints because the private corporation is now functioning as the government’s agent.
Previously, Landry and Schmitt were successful in getting decisions that required Dr. Fauci and other administration representatives, such as Jen Psaki, to testify regarding their knowledge of the administration’s use of Facebook and Twitter to silence accounts that were opposed to vaccine requirements.
Judge Doughty determined that Agent Chan would have direct knowledge of the FBI officials who pushed Facebook to remove the story about the Hunter Biden laptop and their motivations.
Now that the case has been cleared up, Attorneys General Schmitt and Landry can investigate the FBI’s interference in the 2020 election.
There’s little doubt in the minds of millions of Americans that hiding a damning Biden story just before the 2020 election cycle tipped the scales in the Democrats’ favor.
But that’s not all the Bidens and the Democrats have to worry about.
Reports from the past several weeks have indicated that federal officials have enough to prosecute Hunter Biden on hundreds of federal violations.
And the U.S. House now under control of the GOP is poised to investigate the Biden family closer over these alleged crimes.
