Officials with the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden are grasping at every straw they can find to try and refute very credible, evidenced-based claims of corruption involving the former vice president’s family and son Hunter Biden.
These new allegations are contained in bombshell reports first by the New York Post and then Breitbart News that stem from emails and other materials extracted from a MacBook Pro laptop Hunter Biden abandoned at a computer repair shop in Delaware last year.
According to reports, the emails:
— Expose Joe Biden for lying about never knowing much about his son’s foreign business deals, especially in Ukraine
— Provide intricate details about Hunter Biden’s business deals with Communist Chinese companies (he traveled to China in 2013 with his father aboard Air Force Two)
— Indicate that Hunter Biden has been kicking back 50 percent of what he makes to his dad as a result of using the Biden family name to get ahead
These are documented on the hard drive, which, by the way, was seized in December by the FBI, which has done nothing with the evidence of corruption and alleged criminal activities.
Nevertheless, the Biden campaign pushed back on the stunning allegations on Friday using one of the most ridiculous of reasons: Twitter.
In an interview with Cheddar, Jamal Brown, the Biden campaign’s national spokesman, said he was grateful for the social media platform’s attempts to “limit misinformation” by blocking access to the original Post story.
Then he tried to say that, because Twitter was blocking access, it ‘proves’ the story is false — because, you know, the platform is such a fair arbiter of ‘the facts’ when it comes to conservative and left-wing figures.
“I think Twitter’s response to the actual article itself makes clear that these, you know purported allegations are false, and they’re not true,” Brown said. “Glad to see, you know, social media companies like Twitter, taking responsibility to limit misinformation.”

Is he serious? Yes, of course he is.
Twitter, like Facebook and other major social media platforms, has decided to go all-out this election cycle to see President Trump and Republicans defeated.
But really, this “election interference” began in 2016, as Natural News reported in September 2018. Google employees and engineers actively worked to turn out more voters for Hillary Clinton:
Eliana Murillo, a Hispanic woman who heads Google’s “Multicultural Marketing” department, was caught conversing with other Google employees about how to get more Latino people out to the polls in an attempt to help Clinton win the election. Murillo also used the term “silent donation” to indicate that her employer had given cash contributions to pro-Hillary causes.
During this election cycle, with the left-wing sycophants who run the country’s biggest social media platforms even more stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome, they are going all-out to block, limit distribution, or outright censor any stories that are harmful to Biden, as evidenced by platforms blocking access to the Post story.
For it’s part, the The Republican National Committee has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, labeling the censorship an “in-kind” political contribution which is patently illegal.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) on Friday filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) alleging that the censorship of the New York Post article about Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings and former Vice President Joe Biden’s alleged knowledge of those dealings amounts to an “illegal corporate in-kind political contribution” to the Biden campaign, Fox News has learned.
In the complaint, the RNC asserted that it “believes that Twitter has violated FECA and the Commission’s Regulations by making corporate in-kind contributions to Biden for President.”
The RNC correctly described Twitter as “a partisan actor, run by partisan Democrats” and has accused the platform of “using its corporate resources to provide active support for Joe Biden’s campaign in violation of federal law.”
As such, the FEC ought to “conduct an immediate investigation” into Twitter’s “illegal in-kind contributions to the Biden campaign,” and “impose the maximum penalty allowed under the law,” the RNC insisted.
