As the saga surrounding the Twitter Files rumbles on, Fox News host Steve Hilton said someone needs to be held responsible for the apparent collusion between intelligence agencies, Big Tech, and the Democrats. Hilton described the collusion as unconstitutional, illegal, and an attack on American democracy.
Hilton told Fox News host Trace Gallagher that the FBI colluded with Big Tech to influence the election on behalf of the Democrats when they asked Twitter and Facebook to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story.
“Worse, the FBI is engaged in the cover-up even though they know it’s true because they had the laptop for over a year,” Hilton said. That’s a massive scandal.”
Hilton noted that one of Twitter’s security officers met weekly with the FBI, DHS, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in the weeks leading to the election. Hilton added that these three federal agencies sent notice of everything to Twitter, including mail-in ballots.
The FBI should not be meddling in our elections.
They have lost the complete trust of the public and they’re the ones who are truly endangering democracy.
They must be held accountable.

Hilton also sent out a series of tweets stating that the FBI should not be meddling in the U.S. election and that the agencies have lost the public’s complete trust.
“The ringleaders of this plot must be identified, prosecuted, and punished for their crimes,” Hilton said in another tweet.
Hilton also expressed his shock at the media silence over the issue.
“It is completely unbelievable that the rest of the media are not interested in this story,” he said. “Look at the way that they never stopped talking about Russia collusion that turned out to be a hoax invented by the Democrats.”
Hilton also responded to former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s claim during a Congressional hearing that the social media was not censoring speech. Hilton said Dorsey lied and was only arguing about the semantics. Hilton added that what Twitter called visibility is the same as shadow banning.
“The job of the next House of Representatives and these committees chaired by Republicans is to haul these people in and to establish the evidence,” Hilton added. “And if there is evidence of criminal wrongdoing, these people should be prosecuted,” he concluded.
