The allegations made by Michael Shellenberger about the FBI's efforts to suppress the story about Hunter Biden's laptop were shocking. However, we are still far past the point where officials should be more powerful than a group of grifters.
The details of the report revealed that the FBI had over 80 agents monitoring Twitter, and they were also feeding suggestions about what to remove from the platform. This is hardly surprising, given how the security state has grown.
The allegations made by Michael Shellenberger about the FBI's efforts to suppress the story about Hunter Biden's laptop were shocking. The agency lied to Twitter, as well as other platforms such as Google, Facebook, and Apple, about the nature of the device. They also claimed that it was a fake plant that could be used by a foreign government to influence the 2020 presidential election.
1. FBI took Hunter Biden's laptop in Dec 2019 & knew it didn't come from hacking
2. FBI spent 2020 telling Twitter that a "hack-and-leak" involving Hunter would occur in Oct 2020
3. FBI was spying on Giuliani when he gave laptop to NY Post https://t.co/AtU08zfsYS

The FBI tried to stack the deck in favor of its preferred candidate during the 2020 presidential election. This is a serious threat to our democracy, as this is the same reason why foreign governments would try to influence our elections. We rely on the agencies of the government to protect our democracy.
They interfered with one instead.
The FBI is a vital part of protecting our democracy, as it is supposed to be one of the most professional agencies in the world. Unfortunately, instead of being a leading law enforcement agency, the FBI is run by political hackers. Americans were outraged when they learned about the political manipulation of J. Edgar Edgar Hoover, and numerous reforms were implemented after his death.
The FBI is clearly interested in becoming the Praetorian Guard, as they have reportedly chosen their emperors and are ready to kill those they don't like.
During Donald Trump's presidency, the FBI conducted numerous operations against him. They illegally leaked documents, spread lies about him, and tried to establish a witch hunt against him. They also pretended that the allegations about the Dossier were based on credible sources, while knowing that they were being manipulated by the Clinton campaign.
The FBI is full of power hungry liars who are making a living by lying. The top ranks of the organization are populated with these individuals.
The FBI was always on the lookout for Trump, and they were right on their target. They were able to get him through their efforts with the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop case.
The FBI's response to the allegations is classic, as they can't dispute the facts. They then spin the story as if nothing happened.

The FBI stated that the agency's agents work hard to protect the American people. It is sad that conspiracy theorists and individuals are only interested in spreading false information to undermine the agency.
It is sad that conspiracy theorists and individuals are only interested in spreading false information to undermine the agency. The only theory that can be proven is a conspiracy. The FBI has receipts proving that they do not dispute the facts.
The Left is constantly trying to create bubbles in the water in an attempt to hide the truth, and they will do anything in their power to do so. If they say "misinformation," the Left will immediately embrace it, and they will do everything in their power to discredit the truth in order to do so.
The FBI is one of the institutions, similar to the CDC, that once looked like it was above reproach. As the rest of the government looked corrupt and bloated, these institutions still managed to maintain their reputation.
However, the rest of the government is full of corrupt and bloated individuals. There are still many good people working in the government, but the fish is slowly rotting away. It is hard to imagine what it would be like to be a good person working for these individuals.
I believe that most people who work for the FBI are good people. It is also possible that many of them think they are doing the right thing by doing their jobs.
Unfortunately, the FBI is now corrupt. As an institution, it is compromised. It cannot be fixed, and I don't see how it can get back on track.
