Zuckerberg Tosses FBI Under the Bus in Joe Rogan Interview
Washington, D.C.: “Whether intentionally or not, Mark Zuckerberg just outed the FBI for major corruption,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “A clip spreading like wildfire from Zuck’s interview on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast this week reveals that Facebook had warning from the FBI to be on the lookout for stories about Hunter Biden’s laptop, which they told the social media giant were known Russian propaganda.
“The really big hiccup in this story is that now, in 2022, we know the Hunter Biden laptop is real. We know that the then-censored New York Post initial reporting was accurate. And we know that the FBI has admitted it’s real and they’ve had it since 2019, long before they told Facebook in 2020 that it was Russian disinformation. The FBI lied, and they colluded with social media companies to bury a major, influential story on the eve of a consequential presidential election.
“This is absolutely disgusting, and it’s time for the FBI to face serious accountability. It’s time to tear apart the shadowy corruption of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and shine a light on their practices. Every American of any party affiliation should be terrified and angry at this news, and we must demand that this corrupt bureaucracy be held accountable now!”
