GOP to social media players, New York Times: Save Hunter Biden evidence

The Republican party has begun setting the stage for a full-blown review of the scandals involving Hunter Biden, and perhaps those linked to Joe Biden, by ordering social media industry players and the New York Times to preserve the evidence they have.

In an interview on John Solomon Reports, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., confirmed that GOP lawmakers are dispatching letters to Twitter, Facebook, the Times and “dozens” of former U.S. intelligence officials.

The letters instruct them to preserve any and all evidence of their efforts to suppress 2020 news reports about Hunter Biden’s laptop and business dealings.

Those stories first were broken by the New York Post, but social media industry leaders, along with legacy players like the Times, insisted they were Russian “disinformation” and suppressed them.

A subsequent Media Research Institute survey later revealed that had those accurate reports been more widely distributed, enough voters would have withheld their support from Joe Biden that he would have lost the 2020 election.

Those reports, of course, were verified through a variety of ways, and now even the Times has admitted to their accuracy.

Issa told John Solomon Reports the letters will set the stage for the Republicans to issue subpoenas and open a formal investigation of the matter, should they reclaim the majority in Congress in this fall’s midterms, as many election analysts are predicting.

Issa would be in line to be chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee should the GOP regain its majority.

He explained on the podcast, “What I can’t live with is the fact that when the New York Post, one of the oldest print newspapers in the country, founded in 1801, comes out with credible evidence, which they can show how they got it, what their sources were — there were no hidden sources on this — they not only got shut down by … Facebook and Twitter, but they got shut down by the New York Times, by public broadcasting, by virtually everyone.”

He continued, “And they were shut down by having more than 50 of the most informed people in the intelligence world all saying that they knew that this was false information. That is a conspiracy of monumental size.”

He explained there were those to coordinated the drive to call the factual reporting disinformation, and they knew what they were doing.

“That is where we’re asking to have the evidence preserved. And when we receive the ability to subpoena again … on the anticipation that the House will return to the [GOP] majority, this is an investigation that has to be done, because shutting down the First Amendment is now a pattern of new media. But it’s also becoming a pattern of old media. And there aren’t very many older than the New York Times.”

Just the News explained the Post in October 2020, just before the election, gained access to emails from a laptop Hunter Biden abandoned at a repair shop in Delaware.

The Bidens never have denied those facts.

“One message showed that he introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at Ukrainian energy firm Burisma less than a year before the vice president pressured Ukrainian officials to drop an investigation into the firm, long shadowed by corruption allegations,” Just the News reported.

“The emails also revealed the executive asking Hunter — who received over $80,000 per month as a Burisma board member — for ‘advice on how you could use your influence’ on the company’s behalf.”

Despite the facts of the reporting, Andy Stone, a longtime Democrat operative and at the time Facebook’s “policy communications director” boasted about censoring that information.

Twitter followed.

Legacy media outlets like the Times either ignored it or claimed it wasn’t authentic.

Then in what obviously was a coordinated campaign move, 51 “former intelligence officials” like ex-CIA chief John Brennan falsely claimed in a public letter that the laptop details were Russian disinformation.

“The laptop is now in FBI custody and has been reviewed by Just the News and deemed authentic. Only a small handful of media outlets, including Just the News, have consistently reported on the laptop’s contents since 2020,” Just the News said.

Issa said the questions include exactly who made the decision at the various organizations to shut down the story.

“Who [did] that person talk to? What was in their texts and the like? Because there obviously was — and I hate the use of this word, since it was false when it was first used — but collusion at the highest levels” between Big Tech, the media, and former government officials,” Issa said.
