STEALING FREE SPEECH AND ELECTIONS: James Baker, Former FBI General Counsel, Buried Hunter ‘Laptop From Hell’ Story At Twitter, Had HAMMER / SCORECARD Source Code According To CIA Contractor-Turned-Whistleblower Dennis Montgomery

By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | December 3, 2022

During the run-up to the 2020 U.S. election, agents from the FBI’s San Francisco bureau met with California-based social media executives — initially on a quarterly basis, then monthly, and finally, weekly, according to Missouri Attorney General and U.S. Senator-elect Eric Schmitt.

On one side of the table were agents from the FBI San Francisco field office cyber branch, where Elvis Chan and FBI Section Chief, Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF) Laura Dehmlow led efforts to cross pollinate and synchronize the efforts of FBI officials and social media company executives in a Chinese Communist Party-style control grid over all internet communications.

On the other side of the table were executives from social media companies such as Facebook owner Meta and Twitter, where former FBI General Counsel James Baker, who served as a Deputy General Counsel, and as of December 2022, is perhaps now leading Twitter’s legal department.

Elon Musk promised to expose internal Twitter emails and subsequently linked to a Twitter thread by reporter Matt Taibbi.

According to an internal Twitter corporate email published on Twitter by Taibbi, amid an internal debate among Twitter executives on the decision to censor links to a bombshell New York Post report about Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell,” James Baker wrote:

I support the conclusion that we need more facts to assess whether the materials were hacked. At this stage, however, it is reasonable for us to assume that they may have been and that caution is warranted.

There are some facts that indicate the materials may have been hacked, while there are others indicating that the computer was either abandoned and-or the owner consented to allow the repair shop to access it for at least some purposes. We simply need more information.

We previously reported at The American Report on July 13, 2017 that Senior U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia “struck a limited immunity agreement for Montgomery with the FBI.” At the time that Judge Lamberth struck Montgmery’s limited immunity agreement with the FBI, future Twitter Deputy General Counsel James Baker was the FBI’s general counsel.

“FBI Director James Comey demanded that the FBI be given the source code to SCORECARD, the election-hacking application that operates on THE HAMMER surveillance supercomputer platform, as a condition of  CIA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis L. Montgomery’s 2015 FBI and DOJ immunity agreements, according to Montgomery,” we reported in a December 18, 2020 article at The American Report titled “STEALING AMERICA: ‘Former’ Communist Comey Got SCORECARD Election Hacking Source Code And Knew SolarWinds Was Not Secure: US District Court Judge Richard Leon Confirmed That ICIG Had Possession Of Montgomery’s Recorded Testimony And Hard Drives.”

Montgomery states that he “implanted a unique digital signature within the source code” of SCORECARD, The American Report reported on May 17, 2021.

FBI Met Weekly With Social Media Companies During Run Up To 2020 Election

According to a December 2, 2022 Fox News exclusive report titled “FBI met weekly with Big Tech ahead of the 2020 election, agent testifies: FBI Agent Elvis Chan testified Tuesday to Missouri and Louisiana attorneys general”:

On Tuesday [November 29, 2022], lawyers from the offices of Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana deposed FBI Supervisory Special Agent Elvis Chan as part of their lawsuit against the Biden administration.” That suit accuses high-ranking government officials of working with giant social media companies “under the guise of combating misinformation” to achieve greater censorship.

…According to the complaint, pursuant to a third-party subpoena, Meta identified the FBI’s Foreign Interference Task Force and Chan as involved in the communications between the FBI and Meta that led to Facebook’s suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.

We previously reported in an October 25, 2020 article at The American Report  titled “Since 2015 FBI, DOJ Hid Secret Evidence Proving Hunter And Joe Biden’s China Ties Says CIA Whistleblower”:

In August 2015, CIA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis L. Montgomery provided the FBI and the DOJ with evidence stored on 47 hard drives that implicates Robert Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, in illegal activities, Montgomery states.

Among the 600 million pages of documents stored on those 47 hard drives of electronic data that Montgomery turned over to the FBI were 10,000 pages of documents regarding Hunter Biden and Joe Biden, according to Montgomery. The 10,000 pages of documents regarding Hunter Biden and Joe Biden included videos and images.

Going all the way back to 2003, Montgomery maintains, the U.S. government continuously targeted Joe Biden and Hunter Biden with electronic surveillance via THE HAMMER.

US District Court Judge Richard Leon Confirmed That ICIG Had Possession Of Montgomery’s Recorded Testimony And Hard Drives 

We also previously reported at The American Report that US District Court Judge Richard Leon confirmed that the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) had possession of Montgomery’s recorded testimony and computer hard drives:

According to a March 3, 2018 opinion by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon in the case DENNIS MONTGOMERY, et al., Plaintiffs, v. JAMES COMEY, Defendants:

At the status conference in this case, counsel for the Government defendants represented to this Court that the “hard drives are in a secure facility with the [I]ntelligence [C]ommunity’s Office of Inspector General” and that there was “no risk” that they were “going to be destroyed anytime soon”…

…Plaintiffs’ primary argument on this point is that, without preservation of the hard drives and the interview tapes, they “will lose the material evidence in this case.” Pls.’ Mot. 18. But as I have already explained, the Government has represented to this Court that there is a litigation hold preventing the destruction of either the hard drives or the interview tapes.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General from 2010 to 2018 was former FBI agent Irvin Charles “Chuck” McCullough III. McCullough, in that role, reported directly to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. McCullough was also previously employed by the NSA Inspector General’s office.

Fox News reported in a December 3, 2022 article titled “Musk declares New York Times ‘lobbying firm for far left’ after reportedly ignoring ‘Twitter Files’ story”:

Twitter owner Elon Musk called The New York Times a “lobbying firm for far left politicians” on Saturday.

The world’s richest man made his comments on Twitter Saturday in response to the claim that the news outlet featured no articles about the revelation of Musk’s “Twitter Files” the morning after they dropped on Twitter.

Five Months Before 2020 Election, Twitter Hired Former FBI General Counsel James Baker; Baker Is Still Twitter’s Attorney As Of November 2022

The New York Post reported on June 16, 2022 article titled “Twitter hires former FBI lawyer James Baker to join legal team,” “Twitter has tapped former FBI general counsel James Baker, a central player in the Russia collusion investigation, to serve as counsel to the tech giant.

Bloomberg Law reported on November 22, 2022:

The most senior in-house attorneys left at the company [Twitter] are Baker, a former general counsel of the FBI hired by Twitter in 2020, and Lima, the international legal head who recently relocated to the US, the people familiar said.

Baker and Lima didn’t respond to requests for comment.
