A former CIA agent who was a signatory to the now-infamous October 2020 open letter dismissing The New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop emails as Russian disinformation was found to have worked at Twitter until last year, all while keeping her affiliation hidden from Congress.
The explosive details came to light in the newly discovered “Twitter Files” on Wednesday.
Nada Bakos, who held a position as a Twitter policy enforcement official, was among the 51 former intelligence agents who falsely claimed the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation in their October 2020 letter, the New York Post reported.
Bakos, it turns out, had alerted her senior policy team at Twitter about her appearance on the New York Post’s March 2022 cover featuring the “spies who lie” who publicly cast doubt on the laptop’s authenticity, independent journalist Texas Lindsay revealed in her Twitter Files reporting.
What makes this revelation even more intriguing is that Bakos, along with her Twitter colleagues, took steps to conceal this information.
She made her Twitter account private and “locked down” her LinkedIn profile “in hopes of hiding the fact that she worked at Twitter,” Lindsay reported.
In an email to her colleagues, Bakos acknowledged the situation, stating, “I wanted to make you aware of the NYPost cover that I was ‘featured’ on related to the Oct 2020 story about Hunter Biden’s emails when he was on the Board of the Ukrainian Gas company, Burisma.”
A former CIA agent who signed the October 2020 open letter that dismissed The Post’s bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop emails as Russian disinformation worked on policy enforcement at Twitter as recently as last year and did not disclose her role to Congress, new “Twitter Files” reporting shows.
Nada Bakos alerted her senior policy team — including now-former Twitter head of trust and safety Yoel Roth — that her photograph was one of 20 on The Post’s March 19, 2022, cover highlighting 51 former intelligence officials who cast doubt on the authenticity of the laptop, according to an email sent the same day and obtained by independent journalist Texas Lindsay.
“Hi All – I wanted to make you aware of the NYPost cover that I was ‘featured’ on related to the Oct 2020 story about Hunter Biden’s emails when he was on the Board of the Ukrainian Gas company, Burisma and a letter signed by 100s of former IC officials,” Bakos wrote in an email that listed her title as a senior policy domain specialist of site integrity.
“(Twitter also banned the NYPost for the story at the time),” she added. “Given my Policy role (and currently doing enforcement) across CHA-O, I didn’t want this to come as a surprise. I don’t /haven’t publicly acknowledged working for Twitter and locked down my LinkedIn.”
“I have no plans to respond/make a statement or acknowledge the piece,” she told the team.
Shortly after, Bakos switched her LinkedIn account to private and locked her profile on Twitter, now known as X.
Bakos worked at the social media giant from September 2021 through November of last year. Since leaving the CIA in 2010 after a decade as an analyst……
The ex-CIA counterterrorism analyst worked under former agency head Michael Morell, who helped author the now-infamous letter seeking to discredit laptop emails that showed Hunter Biden had introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a Ukrainian business partner, according to congressional testimony he gave earlier this year.
In April, the former CIA director told members of the House Judiciary Committee in private sworn testimony that he had been “triggered” to write the intelligence letter by then-Biden senior campaign official Antony Blinken, now secretary of state.
Bakos also helped draft the intelligence letter, but the email address she used with other former officials was redacted in communications forwarded to House lawmakers, according to a source familiar with the matter.
In case there was any doubt about her politics:
Twitter teamed up with multiple government agencies to control free speech and social media.
The same government agencies who cover for the Biden Crime Family.
