Former President Donald Trump said the 2020 election needs to be re-done following recent disclosures about how the FBI influenced reporting about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
“So now it comes out, conclusively, that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that, if they didn’t, ‘Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election,’” wrote Trump on Truth Social Monday afternoon.
“This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!” Trump also wrote Monday.
A poll conducted last week that found nearly 80 percent of Americans who were surveyed said that “truthful” coverage of the Hunter Biden laptop story would have changed the outcome of the 2020 election.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also told podcast host Joe Rogan that FBI officials communicated with Facebook staff ahead of the election and the social media giant moved to restrict the reach of articles around Hunter Biden’s laptop. Last week, meanwhile, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) revealed an FBI whistleblower told his office that the bureau slow-walked its investigation into the younger Biden’s laptop.
With weeks to go before the 2020 General Election, the New York Post published a bombshell report detailing messages regarding business dealings between Hunter Biden and foreign companies, including a firm that has ties with the Chinese Communist Party. A former associate, Tony Bobulinski, told news outlets days later that emails and other messages sourced from the laptop were authentic, including one email referencing “10 held by H for the big guy” when describing percent equity allocations of a project with CEFC, a Chinese firm.
Bobulinski, a business partner of Hunter, told outlets on the record that President Joe Biden was “the big guy.” Those emails and other details from the laptop were included in a presidential debate between Trump and Biden in late 2020.
But after the article was published on Twitter, the social media firm locked the New York Post out of its account for more than two weeks and blocked it from being shared.
Months later, in March 2021, former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey told a congressional panel that blocking the NY Post’s article was a “total mistake” and described it as a “process error.”
“It was literally just a process error. This was not against them in any particular way,” Dorsey told the House Energy and Commerce Committee at the time. He did not say who made the decision to block the NY Post’s story.
