FBI Worked with Ukraine to Censor American Citizens Online

Twitter has just published files that expose a collusion campaign between Ukraine’s government and the FBI to censor American citizens online.

According to the latest bombshell installment of the Twitter Files, the FBI sent Twitter an email from Ukrainian intelligence asking the social media platform to ban users.

The list contained Twitter users who posted content or comments that were critical of Ukraine.

The FBI also demanded that Twitter hand over “user data specified during registration” of those on the list.

Among those on the list were American and Canadian journalists.

The explosive findings were detailed by Canadian journalist Aaron Maté on Twitter.

Maté further detailed his findings on his Substack page.

“The Federal Bureau of Investigation has aided a Ukrainian intelligence effort to censor social media users and obtain their personal information, leaked emails reveal,” Maté writes.

“In March 2022, an FBI Special Agent sent Twitter a list of accounts on behalf of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), Ukraine’s main intelligence agency.

“The accounts, the FBI wrote, ‘are suspected by the SBU in spreading fear and disinformation.’

“In an attached memo, the SBU asked Twitter to remove the accounts and hand over their user data.”

“The Ukrainian government’s FBI-enabled targets extend to members of the media,” Maté reveals.

“The SBU list that the FBI provided to Twitter included my name and Twitter profile.

“In its response to the FBI, Twitter agreed to review the accounts for ‘inauthenticity’ but raised concerns about the inclusion of me and other ‘American and Canadian journalists.’

“The FBI’s attempt to ban Twitter accounts at the request of Ukrainian intelligence is among the most overt requests for censorship revealed to date in the Twitter Files, a cache of leaked communications from the social media giant.”

Twitter declined to turn over the users’ data but banned dozens of people from the list.

This news comes as the FBI is desperately trying to cover up its collusion with Big Tech companies to censor the American people by blocking so-called “disinformation.”

The FBI is blocking the release of records of its officials “advising” Twitter workers how to attack information they disliked, as Slay News reported.

“Officials at the FBI repeatedly flagged alleged examples of election ‘misinformation’ in early 2020 and late 2022 to Twitter under its then-CEO Jack Dorsey, with the platform in some cases removing accounts shortly after government outreach, according to emails published by journalist Matt Taibbi in December 2022 as part of the ‘Twitter Files,’” the Washington Examiner reported.

But now it has closed a records request from the watchdog Protect the Public’s Trust that sought to obtain more details.

If released, the FBI claims the information could create an “unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.”
