Facebook Files #4 show FBI lied about meeting with Big Tech on Hunter Biden laptop story: Jim Jordan

Perjury and collusion allegations were front and center in the latest Facebook Files, adding a new layer to concerns about President Joe Biden’s administration.

Though they’ve left the American people waiting to see consequences, the Republican-led 118th Congress has stayed true to midterm election promises regarding investigations. To that end, House Judiciary Committee chair Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) doled out more findings damning members of the FBI for their part in covering up censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story and their own tracks.

“Internal FB (Facebook) docs reveal that an FBI Special Agent made false statements in testimony about the FBI’s role in the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story,” Jordan posted to social media Monday morning.

Turning to specifics, the congressman named a regular character from the “Twitter Files,” FBI Special Agent Elvis Chan as “the main conduit between the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force (FTIF) and Big Tech. Agent Chan was in the meeting between the FBI and Facebook on Oct. 14, 2020–the day the @nypost published its story on the Hunter Biden laptop.”

Looking back at congressional testimony from the FTIF section chief Laura Dehmlow, Jordan asserted that her statements revealed for the first time to the committee that the FBI had met with Facebook after meeting with Twitter that same day.

As a result of those FBI meetings, the chief explained that “there were internal deliberations” on how to answer questions on the veracity of the laptop leading to the decision that “no comment” was the path forward.

“Did Dehmlow know that the FBI had the laptop and it was real? Yes.” Jordan fired off. “Did other key members of the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force know? Yes. The FBI knew the laptop was real and yet decided it would say ‘no comment.'”

The Ohio lawmaker shared snippets of Chan’s testimony claiming multiple times that there had been only one meeting between the FBI and a social media company, documented as a conversation with Facebook on Oct. 14, 2020.

“COMPLETELY FALSE,” the congressman said as he included an internal document that showed the special agent had a “follow up” discussion with Facebook on Oct. 15 about the laptop.

“Agent Chan also claimed in the deposition that he had ‘no internal knowledge of [the FBI’s] investigation’ involving Hunter Biden’s laptop,” the thread continued with screenshots of testimony. “But the Facebook employee, and ex-FBI agent, wrote–the day after the story broke–that ‘Chan advised that he was up to speed on the current state of the matter within the FBI.’ Chan had also told FB that ‘there was no current evidence to suggest any foreign connection…of the leaks.'”

The previous Facebook Files followed Jordan’s previous account of the Biden administration’s work to suppress the spread of information on social media that painted COVID shots in a negative light, regardless of their truthfulness.

This latest show of evidence proved especially weighty considering recent testimony from Hunter Biden’s former business partner Devon Archer on then-Vice President Joe Biden’s repeated call-ins to business meetings of his son.

Before hinting that there would be more information to come, Jordan nodded to seemingly ongoing collusion between federal agencies to drive a specific outcome and asked, “Is there any wonder why the Biden DOJ has so far stonewalled the Committee’s efforts to interview Agent Chan?”
