Former Democrat congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard says her former political party, along with the mainstream media and others, "rigged" the 2020 presidential election for Joe Biden by intentionally suppressing a story late in the race about the contents of a laptop belonging to son Hunter Biden.
Gabbard made the argument Monday on Truth Social, based on what she said were "polls," including one she added to her post, a survey from the group TIPP Insights and published in The Daily Mail, that found voters thought they lacked "critical" information about the laptop during the elections and would have voted differently had they known more.
"If the polls are accurate, we have a president who won because Dems/National Security State/MSM rigged the election by deliberately suppressing Hunter Biden laptop story,” the former Hawaii congresswoman wrote. "We need to hold them accountable, otherwise they will do it again in 2024."
The New York Post three weeks before Election Day published a story about a laptop recovered at a Wilmington, Delaware, computer repair shop that had information about the Biden family’s overseas business deals that raised concerns about Joe Biden’s involvement, or at least knowledge of them, as vice president.
Former members of the U.S. intelligence community, including some who still reportedly had a security clearance, collectively acknowledged in a letter that they couldn’t verify the story was so-called “Russian disinformation” but said it appears as such. And essentially most of the so-called “mainstream media” didn’t acknowledge the veracity of the story or write about it until recently.
Furthermore, with Elon Musk having recently taken over Twitter, he recently allowed reporters access to the decisions made by the top executives of the social media platform to limit the distribution of the story. The reporters' Twitter posts withe the communications appear to show Democrats trying to get the executive to suppress the story.
