Twitter and Facebook are getting blasted today because of trying to suppress the NY Post story about Hunter Biden’s emails.
Twitter not only blocked the NY Post from spreading their own story, they’ve even locked out people like the White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing the story.
This is a Big Tech information coup. This is digital civil war.

I don’t know if the allegations are true—Qs that deserve to be answered.

There is no evidence that the material was “hacked” despite that being Twitter’s excuse for stopping the spread of the story.
But the fact they were trying so hard to suppress it, made people want to share it all the more and made people give it more credence and attention.
They wouldn’t be trying so hard if they didn’t think it was a big problem for Biden.
But now the Biden team responded earlier to the explosive story about Hunter Biden’s emails.
Among the emails was one which involved an advisor to Burisma, Vadym Pozharskyi, was thanking Hunter Biden for setting up a meeting with his father, the then Vice President and Obama administration point man on Ukraine, Joe Biden.

The initial response of Biden’s team claimed they had checked Joe Biden’s official calendar and denied there ever was such a meeting because it was not on the calendar. But given the nature of the meeting, who would put such a potentially “quid pro quo” meeting on an official calendar?
But they didn’t dispute that the emails were Hunter’s and it was very clear there were Hunter’s pictures and videos that also were on the hard drive.
But the Biden team must know that they’re in trouble on this because now they are trying to hedge their bets, perhaps in case there are actual photos or recordings of the meeting. Now they’re not ruling out there might have been an “informal interaction” with the Burisma advisor but said any meeting would have been “cursory.”

So before Biden denied he even had one, but now they’re claiming if he had one it was “cursory?” Sounds like they’re basically now admitting now that the meeting could have occurred but they were playing word games in their initial response and are doing their best to minimize it. Can we say backpedal? This adds more to the claim that Joe Biden wasn’t telling the truth about not talking about his son’s business dealings.
Now we know why the denial was qualified: “Biden’s campaign would not rule out the possibility that the former VP had some kind of informal interaction with Pozharskyi, which wouldn’t appear on Biden’s official schedule.” https://t.co/8ITsuXX4fq pic.twitter.com/1XTpv6x94p

Joe Biden called a lid at 9:41 a.m. today, no doubt hoping to avoid any more questions on this story. But despite that, it still blew up. With this further “non-denial,” it adds more fuel to the fire.
