FBI Director Says FBI Doesn’t Act As ‘Truth Police’ Despite Censoring Hunter Biden Laptop Story


On Tuesday, FBI Director Chris Wray claimed that the bureau does not engage in policing the truth on social media platforms, despite the fact that the FBI told Twitter and other social media companies to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story. 

“The FBI does not, is not in the business of functioning as the truth police,” Wray claimed. “We don’t tell social media companies to censor anything or remove account information.

Fox News anchor Bret Baier pushed back on the claim, pointing out information that was confirmed in the release of the Twitter Files.

\“I mean, there was an FBI request numerous times. Taibbi puts it out. FBI San Francisco request to ban certain accounts. Twitter personnel in this case went on to look for reasons to suspend all four accounts that the FBI wanted to ban or suspend,” Baier said. “Was — is it appropriate to flag social media accounts for — on Twitter or elsewhere due to politics or government policies when it comes to COVID? Is it appropriate in any way? You’re saying it doesn’t happen, but there’s evidence that it had.”

“We don’t tell social media companies to ban accounts,” Wray claimed. “What we do is tell social media companies about information that we have about foreign disinformation campaigns by foreign actors, by foreign intelligence services.”
