Big Tech executives donated almost exclusively to Joe Biden while they were suppressing new evidence of the Biden family’s influence peddling business, according to data from the Federal Election Commission.
Fox News reported Facebook and Twitter executives donated tens of thousands of dollars to Biden’s campaign amid suppression of bombshell news stories by the New York Post.
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said “the Silicon Valley mafia was always in the tank for Joe Biden and everyone knew it,”
“It’s why they blocked the sharing of the Hunter Biden story, to protect their boy Joe Biden. That was election interference, plain and simple, while they also targeted President Trump and other Republicans with censorship,” he said. “So it should surprise no one that they have also showered money on him.”
Fox News said it reviewed FEC records showing several top executies gave the legal maximum of $2,800.
At the same time, Fox found no Facebook or Twitter executives who gave to Trump’s campaign.
The report said FEC records show:
- Erin Egan, Facebook vice president of public policy, gave $2,800 to Biden’s campaign after giving the same amount to the campaign during the primaries.
- David Fischer, Facebook’s chief revenue officer, gave the maximum to Biden for the primary, then added another $750.
- David Wehner, Facebook’s chief financial officer, gave the maximum to Biden’s campaign.
Facebook vice presidents Gene Alston, Michael Verdu, Shahriar Rabii and T.S. Khurana also donated the legal maximum of $2,800 to Biden’s campaign during the 2020 cycle, FEC records show.
Instagram’s chief operating officer, Marne Levine, also donated the maximum limit of $2,800 to Biden’s campaign.
Twitter Vice President Matt Derella donate $2,800 to Biden.
FEC records show dozens of the companies’ workers with “manager” or “director” in their titles donating to Biden.
They included Twitter director Ryan Oliver and senior director of product management James Kelm, and Facebook’s public policy director, Steve Satterfield, public policy director Michael Matthews, product manager Brett Keintz and director Ibrahim Okuyucu.
A Twitter spokesman claimed to Fox that “political ideology” plays no role in the company’s processes, but Facebook did not respond to Fox’s request for comment.
An analysis by the Media Research Center earlier found that Facebook and Twitter employees sent more than 90% of all their political donations to Democrats.
That amounted to millions of dollars.
“The social media companies have come under fire from Republicans on Capitol Hill and conservatives for suppressing the circulation of reports in October related to Hunter Biden’s business dealings,” Fox News reported.
The New York Post stories censord by Twitter undermined Joe Biden’s claim that he had no knowledge of his son’s business deals while he was vice president.
Twitter even suspended the accounts of some individuals who tried to share the news in the days before the presidential election.
The laptop also was subpoenaed by the FBI as part of a money-laundering investigation.
Now Hunter Biden has acknowledged that his “tax affairs” are the subject of federal investigation.
A spokesman for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told Fox News: “Of course Silicon Valley billionaires donated to Joe Biden. But their political bias doesn’t end at their checkbooks. By censoring President Trump and news organizations, Big Tech stacked the deck for the Democrat Party and against the American people.”
