Twitter’s new CEO, Elon Musk, released Twitter Files to expose the involvement of the far-left in silencing conservative voices on Twitter by using the federal government’s intelligence and law enforcement agencies.
The newly released Twitter records suggest the company was controlled by former intelligence officers, along with Democratic politicians and strategists, who were suppressing the truth on the platform.
Leftists Corrupted Twitter Using Intelligence Officers
Jeff Carlton, whose LinkedIn profile has been deleted now, worked in the FBI before joining Twitter. Carlton was working in the Strategic Response Team of Twitter, which is responsible for removing conservative accounts and content from the social media platform.
In his now-deleted LinkedIn profile, Carlton claimed he was involved in content moderation and customer support on Twitter to encourage healthy debate on the platform.
Whereas before joining Twitter, Carlton worked with the US federal government in many intelligence-related works.
As per his LinkedIn profile, Carlton worked in the US Marine Corps, as well as in the FBI and the CIA. Reportedly, Carlton worked in authoring such high-profile intelligence reports, which were even presented to former President Barack Obama.
Exclusive: Bari doesn't name too many names but the head of Twitter's Strategic Response Team when secret actions were taken to stifle conservative accounts happened under Jeff Carlton, who worked for both CIA & FBI.

However, Carlton was not the only intelligence officer who ended up working at Twitter. In fact, the social media company employed many former FBI and CIA officials who were at the forefront of suppressing conservative voices on Twitter.
For instance, Jim Baker, who was recently fired from Twitter by Elon Musk, also worked in the FBI before joining Twitter. Baker was fired after he failed to explain why Twitter suppressed Hunter Biden’s laptop story before the 2020 presidential elections.
While working in the FBI, Baker was involved in propagating the conspiracy theories of the Trump-Russia coalition.
I assure you whatever @Twitter was doing, pre-@elonmusk, is currently being done on steroids at @YouTube, @Google, @Meta and @instagram.#Twitterfiles

Democrats Tried to Conspire With Big Tech
For a long time, leftists used Twitter as a major source of distributing misinformation. However, after Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, leftists have been struggling to use the platform for political gains.
Meanwhile, many veteran Democrats also worked in different social media and Big Tech companies, where they continued promoting left-leaning political ideology using their official powers.
For example, Andy Stone, who was a communications director at Meta, remained a Democratic supporter for a long time. When Facebook decided to suppress Hunter Biden’s laptop story, Stone was the Meta official who announced this decision of the social media company.
Similarly, Jay Carney, who remained the White House press secretary under President Obama, worked as a senior vice president of global corporate affairs of Amazon.
Furthermore, Alison and Jessica, the two daughters of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, worked in Meta and Amazon, respectively.
In addition to that, the daughter of Democratic lawmaker Zoe Lofgren works on Google’s legal team. Lofgren is also serving on the House Judiciary Committee, which is responsible for regulating big tech.
Apart from that, the daughter of Dr. Fauci worked as a software engineer on Twitter.
