Twitter Files Part 7 – The DHS/FBI Teleporter One-Way Telecommunications Channel into Twitter, How the FBI Used and Paid Twitter for Censorship

from The Conservative Treehouse:

Twitter file release #7 comes from Michael Shellenberger and focuses on how the FBI specifically engaged with Twitter before, during and after the Hunter Biden Laptop story surfaced.  [RELEASE HERE]

There are some interesting facets to the Shellenberger outline including his naming of the communications method, “Teleporter, a one-way communications channel from the FBI to Twitter, ” and Shellenberger’s identification of payments from the FBI to Twitter in order to cover the expenses related to the censorship they requested.


As Shellenberger notes on paragraph 46, “The FBI’s influence campaign may have been helped by the fact that it was paying Twitter millions of dollars for its staff time. “I am happy to report we have collected $3,415,323 since October 2019!” reports an associate of Jim Baker in early 2021.”

Overall, the Twitter file 7 release shows the FBI being well aware of the Hunter Biden laptop issue long before the fall of 2020 and taking specific action to mitigate any potential damage to the Biden campaign.   The FBI was aware of the laptop in December of 2019, and the engagements with the social media platform were transparently proactive measures with political intentions.

The story weaves in and out of Washington DC and transfers the action items from DC to the San Francisco field office of the FBI where Elvis Chan was in charge of coordinating control over the content of the Twitter platform.

Factually, a solid argument could be made that this specific release shows how the FBI Russiagate effort against Trump needed to exit Washington DC following the 2016 election, and so the majority of FBI’s anti-Trump activity for 2020 shifted to San Francisco.

Washington DC DOJ, FBI and Intelligence Community efforts focused on protecting itself from discovery of their activity in 2015 and 2016, while San Francisco became the headquarters for FBI anti-Trump efforts targeting 2020.  This location shift aligns with the datapoint of Russiagate FBI Agent Joseph Pientka transferring from DC to San Francisco; with Elvis Chan taking the place of Pientka as the targeting focused on social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Google, YouTube, Instagram, etc).

Former FBI Legal Counsel James Baker was fired after the Russiagate activity started to surface.  Baker then becomes the General Counsel at Twitter, able to coordinate and receive ongoing FBI efforts.  Baker would be positioned to influence Twitter executives to accept the FBI instructions as well as deflect any internal questions that might arrise about the platform being used as an extension of the FBI.

As noted by James Baker’s email in the file release, Baker also dissuaded the financial concerns by coordinating payments from the FBI to cover the internal costs to Twitter.  The FBI was paying Twitter for influence and control operations and James Baker handled that transfer of funds.

On the financial side of the equation, I would be on the lookout for additional information about subsidies on the tech side of the platform operation. Specifically, data processing offsets for Twitter as a result of this DHS/FBI/ODNI relationship.  My suspicion for multiple years has been that Twitter tech shifted from an open portal type connection (front of building) to Twitter actually operating on the backbone of DHS servers (back of building).

From the FBI San Francisco Field Office (SFFO) Special Agent Elvis Chan was coordinating the activity.  Specifically, Elvis Chan was coordinating the overall FBI division influence operation of the DHS effort.

One rather stunning aspect to Chan’s role and responsibility, a point that highlights the importance placed on the FBI influence effort, showing the scale of Chan’s reach, was his ability to independently authorize security clearances for the Twitter executives based entirely on Yoel Roth just sending him a list of names.

This security clearance angle may explain why Twitter is currently concerned about releasing specific information related to the FBI “Teleporter” channel being outlined.

In summary, the Twitter File #7 release shows an active 2020 political operation conducted by the FBI in advance of the election mirroring the FBI operation in 2016 around the fraudulent Trump-Russia construct.  The FBI is conducting domestic political intelligence operations on behalf of the United States government.
