Musk Demands Answers From Adam Schiff About Bombshell News FBI Paid Twitter to Censor

As we reported, the latest Twitter files revealed that the FBI pushed Twitter and other social media to squash the Hunter Biden laptop story without any evidence that it was a foreign operation and that they arranged for Top Secret security clearances for executives of Twitter to see some of the information that they wanted them to pursue regarding election “threats.”

That was a far cry from the disclaimer the FBI issued last week when the Twitter files started dropping. They said that they just provided information to Twitter and that whatever Twitter did with it was their own business.

But it gets worse.

The latest Twitter files that were dropped by Michael Shellenberger have yet another bombshell, and now Elon Musk himself is demanding answers about it from Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the lame-duck present head of the House Intelligence Committee. Turns out that not only was the FBI pressuring Twitter to censor things, but according to the files, Twitter was getting paid for it by the FBI. So if you were talking about acting as an arm of the state — and making bank in the process — the new release nails them to the wall.

“I am happy to report we have collected $3,415,323 since October 2019!” reported an associate of Jim Baker in early 2021.

Shellenberger noted that the pressure continued, as the FBI pressed for Twitter to turn over more information without warrants.

Elon Musk himself highlighted this aspect of the files and demanded answers from Schiff.

“As (outgoing) Chair of House Intelligence, did you approve hidden state censorship in direct violation of the Constitution of the United States @RepAdamSchiff?” Musk asked.

Musk also said it wasn’t just Twitter being paid.

You have to hand it to Musk, he’s fearless. He’s not afraid to put them on the spot in pursuit of the truth. Of course, Schiff is one of the biggest liars in Congress, so I wouldn’t trust any response that he gave. But as I previously wrote, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) has already admitted that he had some knowledge of some of the things that were going on and acted like tracking Americans for their tweets was completely normal. What needs to happen here is the Republicans have to take up the cause once they take over, push for answers, and clean house.
