Twitter using ‘hacked info’ policy to suppress bombshell NYPost story, but no evidence hacking was involved

By Andrew Kerr

Twitter on Wednesday afternoon began blocking tweets from being posted that contained links to the New York Post’s report on alleged emails that purportedly show Hunter Biden offered to introduce then-Vice President Joe Biden to an executive of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma.

“We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful,” Twitter told users who attempted to post a tweet containing a link to the Post’s story.

A Twitter spokesperson told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the platform took action to limit the spread of the Post’s report because of the lack of authoritative reporting on the origins of the materials cited by the outlet.

“In line with our Hacked Materials Policy, as well as our approach to blocking URLs, we are taking action to block any links to or images of the material in question on Twitter,” the spokesperson said.

There’s no evidence at the moment the Post relied on hacked materials for its report.

According to the Post, the email was part of a “massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer” that was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019. The owner of the repair shop said the customer never came back to pay for the service and retrieve the computer, the Post reported.

The Post uploaded an invoice signed by the customer that states that equipment left with the repair shop “after 90 days of notification of completed service will be treated as abandoned.”

The repair shop owner later alerted the FBI to the existence of the laptop and its hard drive after it went unclaimed, both of which were seized by federal authorities in December, according to a federal subpoena obtained by the Post.

Before the laptop was seized, however, the shop owner reportedly made a copy of its hard drive and turned it over to a lawyer for former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who in turn provided a copy of the hard drive’s contents to the Post.

The DCNF has not confirmed the authenticity of the emails reported by the Post, and the Biden campaign issued a statement on Wednesday denying that Biden met with the Burisma executive in 2015 as alleged in the Post’s report.

Also on Wednesday afternoon, Twitter began blocking any tweet from being posted that contained links to one of the two documents the Post uploaded to document sharing platform Scribd.

One of the documents depicts an alleged email sent by Hunter Biden in April 2014 to his former business partner Devon Archer, and the other is an alleged email that Vadym Pozharsky, an advisor to Burisma’s board of directors, sent to Hunter Biden and Archer in May 2014.

Facebook spokesman Andy Stone, a former staffer for the Democratic House Majority PAC and former California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, announced earlier Wednesday it would reduce the distribution of the Post’s report despite the lack of any fact-checks against the story.

  1. HIDING THE EVIDENCE

    Info status as of October 18, 2020
    As additional news comes in during October through February, this write-up gets revised and augmented.

    1) THE DEEP STATE

    Yes, the DEEP STATE and FBI/Obama holdovers, who are still around, have been HIDING Hunter Biden’s computer in secret FBI vaults to protect Joe Biden (Hunter calls him The Big Guy in his emails), since DECEMBER 9, 2019, more than TEN MONTHS.

    NOT ONE PEEP FROM THE FBI FOR TEN MONTHS

    Wray, FBI Chief, likely knew about the computer, but kept it a secret.
    He should be questioned by the US Senate ASAP. What did he know, and when did he know it, and why did he keep it a secret?
    Barr, Attorney General, was kept in the dark, even though the FBI is a part of the US Justice Department!!!
    Barr would have immediately told Trump.

    An Oct 17, 2020, Bloomberg article, by Chris Strohm, states, the FBI had probed if the hard disc info was part of a “Russian disinformation operation”.
    That looks like a red herring to divert attention. A Russian Hoax-2?
    Russian Hoax-1 was Hillary’s. See below.

    NOTE: Bloomberg is spending $100 million in Florida to sway Florida into Biden’s column.

    Senate Investigation: On October 17, a letter from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs requested the FBI provide information regarding the computer to compare its hard drive and the New York Post copy. The FBI refused to provide the information, likely to run out the clock to protect Biden.
    The hard drive and copy comparison likely will prove them to be identical, i.e., no Russian Hoax.

    The FBI had the computer during the impeachment process, which was about a phone call during which President Trump asked Zelensky, Ukraine President, to provide information regarding Biden’s dealings in Ukraine.
    Trump smelled a rat and was right ALL ALONG.

    According to emails, the hard drive contains info that would have supported Trump’s position, i.e., influence peddling by Hunter Biden, which was fully known by VP Joe Biden.
    Hunter Biden complains in one email he has to share 50/50 with “the Big Guy”, i.e., VP Joe Biden.
    Hunter arranged for a top Burisma executive to meet with VP Joe Biden; such a meeting likely would not appear on any OFFICIAL records.
    Sure enough, the Biden campaign is claiming “the meeting is not shown on OFFICIAL records”.
    Joe Biden still claims he never discussed business dealings with Hunter, his son, even though the Hunter emails prove otherwise.

    Why did the FBI not speak up during the impeachment process that it possessed EXONERATING EVIDENCE?
    Was the FBI shielding “the Big Guy”, who shows signs of dementia while running for President?

    It appears, the US Media, VT Media and Facebook and Tweeter are colluding with the FBI, i.e., interfering with the election by preventing the free exchange of information between voters.

    Are you kidding me? Right here in the USA?

    Hunter Biden Mac Computer: The computer had been brought to a Delaware Mac repair shop, owned by John Paul Mac Isaac, in April 2019, according to shop records.
    No one had picked up the computer after Hunter Biden was billed $85 and notified several times.
    By law, the Mac shop becomes the LEGAL OWNER of the computer after a certain time period.
    If the owner of the Mac shop had not LEGALLY made a copy of the hard drive, NO ONE WOULD HAVE EVER KNOWN. NO ONE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CONNECT THE DOTS.

    The FBI confiscated the computer on December 9, 2019, and nothing happened for almost 9 months.
    The Mac shop owner realized the FBI was just going to hide the computer (loaded with Joe Biden’s multiple deeds of malfeasance while VP of the US (tens of $millions of grafting and grifting collected by the CORRUPT Biden clan over the years!).
    The Mac shop owner finally decided to contact the Senate HSGA Committee on 24 September, 2020, and also give a hard drive copy to Giuliani, former Mayor of New York, in September 2020.
    Giuliani, after verifying with the Mac shop owner, immediately gave it to the NEW YORK POST.

    A statue should be erected for the courageous Whistleblower!

    2) US MEDIA SILENCE AMOUNTS TO ELECTION INTERFERENCE

    The traditional US, Europe and Vermont media have decided not to mention the grafting and grifting of the Biden clan in Ukraine, Russia and Moscow.

    The NYT, WSJ, WaPo, LAT, etc., mentioned NOT ONE WORD about this EXPLOSIVE NEWS.
    They are in cahoots with the DEEP STATE folks at the FBI, “Justice” Department, State Department, intelligence agencies, etc.

    Is that the way the US people are allowed to elect their PRESIDENT?

    This makes the RUSSIAN HOAX-1, instigated by Hillary and her discredited, DNC-financed Steele report (even the FBI has stated the report is bogus), look like a Sunday school picnic.

    3) GIULIANI, FORMER MAYOR OF NEW YORK

    Giuliani says the hard drive originally came into his possession after the Mac shop owner created four copies to distribute to his friends, because he feared for his life.
    It is likely, the Mac shop owner distributed copies to his friends, to make sure it would become public, after he had been HARMED, OR OTHERWISE DEALT WITH.

    The Mac shop owner handed the original, physical hard drive to the FBI in December 2019, and after almost 9 months, handed over the copy in Giuliani’s possession to Robert Costello, Giuliani’s attorney.

    According to Giuliani, the Mac shop owner attempted to give copies to other Republican operatives, but no one would take them.

    Are we living in a free country, or what?

    4) HUNTER BIDEN AND JOE BIDEN

    Hunter Biden was using “the Big Guy”, meaning VP Joe Biden, for influence peddling.

    According to THOUSANDS of Hunter’s emails on the hard-drive, he had to share 50/50 with “the Big Guy”, i.e., Joe Biden was an active participant and beneficiary of Hunter’s shenanigans.
    Crime boss Joe Biden keeps repeating: “My son did nothing wrong”

    Hunter had a seat on the board of Burisma, a major gas trading company in Ukraine, at $50,000 PER MONTH, FOR FIVE YEARS (2014 – 2019).
    Hunter had zero experience in the energy sector. His usefulness to corrupt Burisma was being close to “the Big Guy”

    Here is a video of Joe Biden bragging about pressuring Poroshenko, president of Ukraine, to fire the Ukraine prosecutor, who was investigating corrupt Burisma, as otherwise Ukraine would not get $1 billion in aid.
    At one point, Joe Biden says, if you think I am kidding, call Obama. Poroshenko fired the prosecutor and got his $1 billion.

    There are many photos with Hunter and Joe Biden grinning and smirking, with Obama, in a knowing fashion. Obama may have been a “beneficiary” as well.
    https://www.facebook.com/WhiteHouse/videos/joe-biden-if-the-prosecutor-is-not-fired-youre-not-getting-the-money/797504800724150/

    Hunter gave up the Burisma job in 2019, after “the Big Guy” decided to run for President

    Similar shenanigans went on in Moscow, Russia, and China, which netted the Biden clan, and Associates, tens of $millions EACH YEAR.

    China has “the Big Guy” in its pocket.
    US factory workers will get no relief from being screwed-over by China, with the help of the likes of Biden.

    4) CORROBORATION

    A hunter Biden partner confirmed the authenticity of a March 13, 2019 email discussing “renumeration packages”, in a deal involving CEDF, a Chinese energy firm.

    The CEDF “meet and greet” payment was $5 million, of which Hunter was to get $1 million (20%), of which $500,000 (10%) was reserved for “the Big Guy”, i.e., VP Joe Biden, according to the email.

    I spend a lot of time checking and cross-checking before I write anything.
    I try my very best to be accurate.

    https://dailycaller.com/2020/10/17/hunter-biden-email-reportedly-authentic/

    Excerpt from the URL:

    “One of the recipients on an email chain with Hunter Biden that was published earlier this week has authenticated the document, Fox News reported.

    The email in question, which is dated March 13, 2017, purportedly shows a business partner of Biden’s discussing “remuneration packages” for participants in a deal involving CEFC China Energy, a Chinese energy company that was owned at the time by Ye Jianming.

    The New York Post published portions of the email on Thursday as part of a series of stories based on documents purportedly from Biden’s laptop.

    Some Democrats have questioned the authenticity of emails published by the Post. But according to Fox News, a person copied on the March 13, 2017, email confirmed that the published document is authentic.”

    Others may come forward to corroborate/authenticate other emails within the next few days.
    It is best not to prejudge the developing news.

    I can assure you, I do not like this disappointing news about Biden.
    I always thought he was one of the good guys.

    Biden was doing this while VP, an impeachable offense (emoluments?), similar to the insider-dealing of Spiro Agnew, the VP of Nixon.
    Agnew resigned, with Nixon to follow later.
    I am old enough to remember; 83

    There is no way crime-boss Biden can continue to go before voters to be President.
    He likely has to hide in his basement.
    The Democrat party will have to replace him.

    I realized the US Media was not going to cover his criminal scandals.
    Tweeter and Facebook are still blocking accounts and URLs.
    It looks like George Orwell has come to pass.

    Therefore, I decided to prepare my own write up.
    It has been widely distributed.
    As additional news comes in during October through February, the write-up gets revised and augmented.

    5) VT MEDIA

    The VT Media has been acting dumb regarding the Biden decades-long grifting and grafting, as if nothing has happened.
    It is treated as a non-event to help touchy-feely, smiling/grinning, conniving Biden become President.
    Nothing to see here folks.
    Just move on.

    Had this involved Trump, it would have been written about all over the place for days.

    ALL THIS IS HIGH ORDER CRAPOLA.
    It stinks to high heaven.

    NOTE: The NYTimes still has not released the source of Trump’s tax returns, but had full-page write ups about them for days, making statements that no one could VERIFY.

  2. The NY Post did its job. To get a Federal subpoena, you have to go to a judge with real evidence in hand. So what did the FBI do with this computer from December 2019 until NOW? Hide it? Destroy it? No investigation and no charges just to protect Biden ? Sort of like Hillary’s phone with the email scandal? I s this another case of Obama leftover hidden personnel like what happened with the fake Russian impeachment? Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? Twitter needs to be temporarily shut down, sued, and investigated by the Feds.

    • “To get a Federal subpoena, you have to go to a judge with real evidence in hand.”

      Really? Like the Steele Dossier?

      It’s frightening to think we can no longer believe anything we don’t learn for ourselves, especially when it comes from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation – our “premier national security organization with both law enforcement and intelligence responsibilities, one that protects the nation from a variety of serious threats while providing leadership to its partners around the world.”

      So, here we are, as predicted by Benjamin Franklin in his address to the Constitutional Convention of 1787.

      “I believe farther that this [Constitution] is likely to be well administered for a Course of Years, and can only end in Despotism as other Forms have done before it, when the People shall become so corrupted as to need Despotic Government, being incapable of any other.”

      ‘Choose wisely, Grasshopper.’

      • Jay hits the nail on the head when he writes: “……we can no longer believe anything…” and the problem he eludes to goes well beyond the FBI.

        Just consider for a moment, the press and media that had worked for generations to keep Americans informed and politicians in line can no longer be trusted……Pretty scary indeed.

        Let’s name, names……..Can we believe what the New York Times tells us today? Or, how about what they don’t tell us? Or how abut the way they present the news that advances a point of view as opposed to unbiasedly informing……. Pretty scary.

        Now add The Washington Post, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CNN and the social media giants that control what we hear or don’t hear……Pretty scary.

        Corruption in the new reporting is nothing new, it goes back to George Washington’s time, but Washington never experienced what we’re witnessing today and that……Pretty scary.

    • Resolute,

      Yes, the DEEP STATE and FBI/Obama holdovers, still around, have been HIDING Hunter Biden’s computer in its secret vaults to protect Joe Biden (Hunter calls him THE BIG MAN), since DECEMBER 2019, more than TEN MONTHS.

      NOT ONE PEEP

      The current FBI Chief may not have known about it.
      Barr, the Attorney General, was kept in the dark, even though the FBI is a part of the US Justice Department!!!

      Are you kidding me?

      If the owner of the computer repair shop had not LEGALLY made a copy of the hard drive, NO ONE WOULD HAVE EVER KNOWN.

      When the owner realized the FBI was just going to hide the computer (loaded with malfeasance IN OFFICE; tens of $millions of grafting and grifting collected by the CORRUPT Biden folks over the years), he decided to give a copy to Giuliani, former Mayor of New York, who immediately gave it to the NEW YORK POST.

      A statue for the courageous Whistleblower!!!.

      The NYT, WSJ, WaPo, LAT, etc., mentioned NOT ONE WORD about this EXPLOSIVE NEWS.
      They are in cahoots with the DEEP STATE folks at the FBI, “Justice” Department, State Department, intelligence agencies, etc.

      Is that the way the US people are allowed to elect their PRESIDENT?

      This makes the RUSSIAN HOAX, instigated by Hillary and her DNC-financed Steele report, look like a Sunday school picnic.

  3. The traditional uS and Europe media have decided not to mention the grafting and grifting of the Bidens in Ukraine, Russia and Moscow.

    Hunter Biden was using “the Big Man”, meaning Joe Biden, for influence peddling.

    Hunter had a seat on the board of Burisma, a major gas trading company in Ukraine, at $50,000 PER MONTH, FOR FIVE YEARS.

    Hunter had zero experience in the energy sector. His usefulness was being close to “ the Big Man”

    Hunter gave up the job in 2019, when “the Big Man” decided to run for President

    Similar shenanigans went on in Moscow, Russia, and in China, which netted the Bidens and Associates tens of $millions EACH YEAR.

    China has “the Big Man”, soon to be President?, in its pocket.
    US workers will get no relief from being screwed over.

  4. It’s not only Twitter and Facebook who are distorting this news, NPR’s ‘All Things Considered’ is referring to the censorship only as locking out unfounded and non-specific Qanon conspiracy theories.

    In other words, the media platforms will tell us that these claims of censorship are conspiracy theories too.

    One thing appears for certain…. the only unfounded conspiracy theory is that there are no actual conspiracies. Welcome to Alice’s Wonderland where up is down and down is up.

    • I am finding their fascination with Qanon really interesting.
      If Q was not a big deal, they’d not be saying a word about it. It really is ‘right over the target’, as they say.
      Q has woken up a tremendous amount of people to a whole lot of reality about the level of corruption in this government, and how far this all goes back too. The history of how we got here.
      It’s also taught people how to research, dig out and digest the news on their own.
      Everything that Q posts is fully researchable.. it’s not like it’s some secret. Everything I’ve ever done a deep dive on- checks out.
      There are now a whole lot of people that have left the plantation and are no longer willing to be spoonfed all the lies and propaganda that the left-wing news pumps out 24/7.

      As far as NPR.. yes, that is quite a hoot.
      I was listening to the ACB hearing yesterday and the NHPR came in the most clear so I was tuned onto that station. I listened to the commentary after and I felt like they listened to an entirely different hearing than I just did.
      I don’t think these people understand how off their rockers they all are.
      It’s hard to take them seriously at this point.

      The Biden stuff has been know about by us for a long time now.. it’s just now finally getting onto the radar in a larger way. They had quite a money laundering operation going on over there disguised as ‘foreign aid.’
      But Hillary really perfected all of this.. more of the same corruption. Look at what she did to Haiti.

      • Red October?

        If you’re a follower of the conspiracy theory that’s “completely baseless,” then you’d know. More to come: a red October indeed.

        After three years, finally! Mainstream media will be screaming bloody murder. Stay tuned.
