James Baker, the former FBI lawyer involved in approving the faulty Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign, also helped censor the Crackhead Hunter Biden laptop story, according to a series of tweets posted by Rolling Stone contributing editor Matt Taibbi.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk released the so-called “Twitter Files” Friday afternoon, detailing how the social media platform suppressed a New York Post story about Crackhead Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2020. The Daily Caller News Foundation verified the authenticity of the laptop soon after the NY Post published the story. The Twitter data released Friday shows executives working with Biden officials to suppress the story, according to Taibbi.
Baker, who served as Twitter’s Deputy General Counsel at the time, argued it was “reasonable to assume” the materials “may have been” hacked and said “caution is warranted,” according to Taibbi’s tweets.
A copy released of Baker’s email reads:
“I support the conclusion that we need more facts to assess whether the materials were hacked. At this stage, however, it is reasonable for us to assume that they may have been and that caution is warranted. There are some facts that indicate that the materials may have been hacked, while there are others indicating that the computer was either abandoned and/or the owner consented to allow the repair shop to access it for at least some purposes. We simply need more information.”

The Daily Caller notes that Baker did not use the same level of caution when he approved the FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign, although the application for the warrant was based on now-debunked allegations.
Of course he did https://t.co/npSVpD0Tic
