  27. Face this scrutiny; The corrupt and complicit D.O.J and FBI interfered in the election by forcing social media companies to suppress free speech regarding the egregious Hunter Biden laptop that contained information about the corrupt racketeering of his father, Joe Biden! This information would've kept this 50 year con man from getting elected! Now, does this grotesquely corrupt propaganda outlet want to discuss this! And lastly, what ethical news agency supports a treasonous regime that floods their country with millions upon millions of illegals to elevate their criminal voting base while destroying the sovereignty of this republic!
