Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg told podcast host Joe Rogen on Thursday that the FBI approached Facebook about “Russian propaganda” shortly before the NY Post broke the explosive Hunter Biden laptop story.

“Basically, the background here is the FBI, I think, basically came to us- some folks on our team and was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert. We thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election,” Zuckerberg told Rogan.

“We have it on notice that, basically, there’s about to be some kind of dump of that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant,” the META CEO added.

To refresh your memory, Hunter Biden abandoned his laptop at a repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware, on April 2019.

The shop owner, John Paul Mac Isaac, took the laptop into the Albuquerque FBI office, explaining what was in his possession, which the bureau later denied. Isaac was told, in basic terms, to get lost.

After two months, the FBI contacted John Paul Mac Issac out of the blue.

Two FBI agents, Joshua Williams and Mike Dzielak, came to John Paul’s business where he offered to give them the hard drive, no strings attached – but they declined.

Isaac later provided a copy to then-President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who then provided a copy of the hard drive to The Post.

Censorship

After months of censorship on social media platforms and ridicule from the establishment media, the story turned out to be true.

Zuckerberg seemed to express regret about suppressing the story.

“Yeah, yeah. I mean, it sucks,” Zuckerberg said, before defending the platform for allowing others to share the NY Post story, unlike Twitter.

“It’s probably also the case of armchair quarterbacking, right?” replied Rogan, adding, “Or at least Monday morning quarterbacking… because in the moment, you had reason to believe based on the FBI talking to you that it wasn’t real and that there was going to be some propaganda.”

“So what do you do?” Rogan said. “And then, if you just let it get out there and what if it changes the election and it turns out to be bulls—, that’s a real problem. And I would imagine that those kinds of decisions are the most difficult.”

This week, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) revealed in a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz that an FBI whistleblower claims the agency gave orders not to investigate the laptop.

“Allegations provided to my office appear to indicate that there was a scheme in place among certain FBI officials to undermine derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation,” wrote Sen. Grassley in a separate letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray.
