Tucker Carlson had on columnist Miranda Devine from the New York Post to discuss the Twitter Files saga on his show Tucker Carlson Tonight last Friday.
Devine is what you could call an expert on the Hunter Biden laptop story. In fact, she researched and vetted the contents and even wrote a book about it, “Laptop from Hell: Hunter Biden, Big Tech, and the Dirty Secrets the President Tried to Hide.”
Devine shared that the Twitter Files wasn’t the “smoking gun” that we (The New York Post) had hoped for. The key component of the story was very obviously redacted in her eyes.
Journalist Matt Taibbi who is combing through and releasing the documents said there was no evidence of interference with the FBI. She knew of sworn affidavits that said otherwise.
She went further to say that there was seeded information from the FBI to the social media giants that there would be Russian disinformation coming, likely about Hunter Biden. She theorizes that the “heads-up” ensured that within hours of the New York Post story going live in October of 2020, it was censored.
In essence, yes, Twitter CEO Elon Musk released the Twitter Files but somewhere along the line, the meat was taken out. This left Devine along with other insiders wondering how, when, and why the meat of the matter was redacted.
She re-joined Carlson again on Tuesday to further the conversation about the redactions.

“It was pretty obvious that the Twitter files that had just been released were missing a crucial element — and that was the FBI,” she stated.
A weekend revelation showed that former FBI lawyer James Baker was hired by Twitter in June 2020, shortly before the elections and was still employed at Twitter. Baker isn’t just any ex-FBI lawyer. He played a major role in the Russian collusion hoax with the Steele Dossier. And once people started connecting the dots, it was obvious what had happened.
“Lo and behold, he shows up at Twitter five months before the 2020 election and lo and behold, one little element did come out in the Twitter Files Friday night,” Devine said. “It was this one email that had the date and time removed from it very peculiarly. But it was from James Baker and it was weighing in on the decision of the morning of Oct. 14th 2020, a few hours after our story came out. And there was James Baker weighing in on the side of censorship, no surprise.”
Musk, who claims he didn’t know Baker worked there until Sunday, has since fired Baker stating that his explanation of the situation was unconvincing when he was confronted.
Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is now calling on Musk to release all of the information, unredacted.
“If the goal is transparency to build trust, why not just release everything without a filter and let people judge for themselves? Including all discussions around current and future actions? Make everything public now.”

Insiders are claiming Dorsey had little to no knowledge of the FBI censorship entanglement at the time.
