Are Trump allies sharing Russian disinformation about Biden?

Hunter Biden email detailing Chinese ties confirmed by source report

Except, based on Facebook's own metrics, that company hasn't censored them at all.

Following publication of the extremely suspicious story from the Trump-friendly New York Post involving the blind owner of a computer fix shop providing Giuliani with a copy of the hard drive from a laptop said to have been abandoned at the store by Hunter Biden, several news outlets reported that intelligence agencies had already warned the Trump administration that the Russians were actively trying to manipulate Giuliani.

"I have no response", Biden said.

The White House was warned in 2019 that U.S. President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani "was being used to feed Russian misinformation" to the President, The Washington Post reported Thursday. According to a former intelligence official who spoke with the Post, national security adviser Robert O'Brien directly warned President Trump that he should assume that Russian Federation had manipulated any information Giuliani obtained from Ukraine.

Giuliani has traveled overseas looking for dirt on the Bidens, developing relationships with shadowy figures, including a Ukrainian lawmaker who USA officials have described as a Russian agent and part of a broader Russian effort to denigrate the Democratic presidential nominee.

Causing massive outcry, and fresh allegations of "leftist bias" and "political interference" from Republican lawmakers, Twitter even briefly restricted Trump's re-election campaign's account after it posted a video about Hunter Biden and the allegations. The New York Times earlier reported Twitter's decision.

Trump had also criticised Twitter's action. And a New York Post story, also published Wednesday, on the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings, has been shared 46 times, as of this writing.

Springer led off the bottom of the first by sending Curtiss' first pitch onto the second balcony of the Western Metal Supply Co. Arozarena pulled the Rays to 3-2 with an opposite-field shot to right-center off Enoli Paredes with one out in the fifth.

The paper said officials wanted to keep Trump from "saying something stupid", especially given the fact that he was in the middle of an impeachment process led by Democrats in the House.

Facebook limited the spread of the story hours after it was published. We will update if we hear back.

Twitter is changing its Hacked Materials Policy, walking back a set of rules at the heart of its enforcement action this week against a controversial article that included potentially damaging allegations against U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden. That policy, enacted in 2018 - announced as part of an election integrity initiative, recalling the 2016 Hillary Clinton email leaks - stated that "news articles discussing a hack", without including the hacked materials, are exempt from penalties.

Twitter at first reacted by forbidding clients from sharing connects to the article in tweets and direct messages since it abused the organization's strategy denying hacked content. After announcing a Senate Judiciary Committee vote to subpoena Dorsey, Texas Senator Ted Cruz demanded to know "what the hell is going on".

The company's policy chief Vijaya Gadde said Thursday night that Twitter had chose to make changes to its hacked materials policy following feedback, but a spokesman told Reuters that the New York Post story would still be blocked for "violating the rules on private personal information". The problem is that Twitter's policy update only makes sense in the context of a news story shared by a media outlet.

Recently, social media platform Twitter was surrounded by a lot of backlashes by people around the world.
