Donald Trump says the “rightful winner” of the 2020 presidential race should be declared or a new election held in the wake of revelations from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg that the FBI tried to suppress The Post’s scoop about Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop.
“So now it comes out, conclusively, that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that, if they didn’t, ’Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election,’” the former president said Monday on his Truth Social media platform.
“This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!,” the 45th president said.
Zuckerberg made the stunning admission last week during an interview on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
“Basically, the background here is the FBI, I think, basically came to us — some folks on our team — and was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert,’” Zuckerberg told the podcaster.
The tech titan said the FBI then said: “‘We thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that, basically, there’s about to be some kind of dump that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant.’”
Zuckerberg said if the FBI was taking the time to reach out to warn about being “on guard,” then “I want to take that seriously.”
Facebook then limited the distribution of The Post’s October 2020 expose about the contents of the first son’s laptop, which he allegedly left at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019 and never retrieved.
The laptop’s hard drive contained a trove of documents and emails that detailed Hunter Biden’s questionable and lucrative overseas business deals in Ukraine and China while his father, Joe Biden, was the vice president in the Obama administration.
After The Post’s report, 51 former US intelligence officials — including former CIA Directors Mike Hayden, Leon Panetta and John Brennan — signed a letter claiming the laptop “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
More than a year and a half after The Post’s exclusive about Hunter Biden, the Washington Post and the New York Times admitted that the emails on the laptop were authentic and confirmed that Hunter Biden was being investigated by federal agents for tax fraud.
A poll by conducted by Technometrica Institute of Policy and Politics and released last week found that 79% of Americans agreed that it was “very” or “somewhat” likely that “a truthful interpretation of the laptop” before the 2020 election would have resulted in the re-election of Trump instead of former Vice President Biden.
Trump pointed to that poll in a posting on Truth Social over the weekend as evidence for his unfounded claims of voter fraud in the election.
“8 of 10 voters in major poll say that the ‘Laptop from Hell’ coverup played a major roll [sic] in the 2020 Presidential Election result,” Trump wrote.
“The FBI had the Laptop, but refused to divulge information because that would be bad for Biden. Even worse, sold the story to media as Russian ’Disinformation,’ knowing that was FAKE NEWS. But don’t feel bad, far worse things took place during that Rigged and Stolen Election, and our Country is paying a very BIG price!,” he continued.
