Elon Musk fires Twitter counsel James Baker, former top FBI lawyer under James Comey, for reportedly scrubbing FBI references in the Twitter Files about Hunter Biden’s laptop 👀
· Dec 6, 2022 · NottheBee.com


James Baker was Twitter's legal counsel. He formerly worked for the FBI, and it is alleged that he removed references to the FBI's involvement in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story after the NY Post published it before the 2020 election.

Remember, about 17% of voters said they would have switched their vote if they had heard about the laptop or other scandals around the Biden name.

More from The Post Millennial:

On Tuesday, Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced that attorney Jim Baker had been "exited" from the company following recent revelations that he may have played a role in facilitating censorship on the platform.

Baker had been hired by Twitter as deputy general counsel following a stint at the FBI that ended with him essentially being forced out of the job.

"In light of concerns about Baker's possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today," Musk wrote on Twitter.

Musk said that Baker's explanation was "unconvincing" once he was confronted.

The Twitter files included revelations that "Twitter took extraordinary steps to suppress the [Hunter Biden laptop] story, removing links and posting warnings that it may be 'unsafe.' They even blocked its transmission via direct message, a tool hitherto reserved for extreme cases, e.g. child pornography.

At this point, it is unclear if Baker acted in his own or was working to cover up information on behalf of the FBI or other actors.

This begs the question:

Just how corrupt is our government???
