‘Twitter Files’ Part 7: Platform Employed Gang Of Spies Leading Up To 2020 Election

The seventh installment of the “Twitter Files” has dropped, once again delving into the collusion between the intelligence community and the social media platform. This time, journalist Michael Shellenberger revealed that Twitter had employed multiple former spies in the lead-up to the 2020 election.

The latest “Twitter Files” — which consist of internal documents and discussions from the social media company released by new Twitter owner Elon Musk — was published on the platform on Monday by Shellenberger in a lengthy tweet thread.

According to the documents that have already been released, among the former spies who worked for Twitter was James Baker — the FBI’s former general counsel.

Baker, a key participant in pushing the Russia collusion hoax against former President Donald Trump, was recently fired by Musk for his “possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue,” Musk said in a tweet on December 6.

In 2018, Baker left the FBI and joined the far-left Brookings Institution and became a legal analyst for CNN. He later joined Twitter as the “Deputy General Counsel and Vice President, Legal” in 2020, according to his LinkedIn.

While at Twitter, Baker played a major role in suppressing the New York Post’s bombshell story about the Hunter Biden laptop.

“As of 2020, there were so many former FBI employees — ‘Bu alumni’ — working at Twitter that they had created their own private Slack channel and a crib sheet to onboard new FBI arrivals,” Shellenberger revealed in one tweet.

The seventh installment of the “Twitter Files” revealed that the FBI wanted to share information with Twitter employees that required a top-secret security clearance — and thus, Twitter pointed them to Baker.

The FBI also warned Twitter prior to the 2020 election about a Russian disinformation campaign. Then, when the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story dropped, Baker repeatedly insisted in Twitter’s internal communications “that the Hunter Biden materials were either faked, hacked, or both, and a violation of Twitter policy,” according to Shellenberger.

Another former spy exposed in the “Twitter Files” is Dawn Burton, the former Deputy Chief of Staff to former FBI Director James Comey — who initiated the Russia collusion hoax.

According to Breitbart News, “Burton would have been close to the FBI’s Hillary Clinton email investigation due to her connection with Comey and the agency’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections.”

In 2019, the ex-spy joined Twitter as “Senior Director, Strategy & Operations for the Legal, Public Policy, and Trust & Safety Organization,” according to her LinkedIn.

Comey himself was also employed at Twitter in September 2019 as the director of strategy and operations and counsel organization.

Comey, who was nominated as FBI director in 2013 by then-President Barack Obama, faced controversy during the nomination process over his previous employment with Lockheed Martin and his association with the Clinton Foundation.

Breitbart News reported: “Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010. According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010. In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.”

While they may be the most high-profile former intelligence community members that Twitter has employed, Baker, Burton, and Comey were not the only ex-spies working at the social media company. According to reporting from the New York Post, Twitter’s ranks were filled with former spies, many of whom are likely still employed at the company.

Shellenberger appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss the latest developments.
