Jordan Subpoenas FBI Agent Accused Of Coordinating Suppression Of Hunter Biden Laptop

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has issued a subpoena to Elvis Chan, the FBI agent accused of coordinating the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.

After the Department of Justice (DOJ) prevented Chan from appearing for a transcribed interview with House lawmakers, Jordan was forced to issue a subpoena for the San Francisco-based FBI agent to appear before the House for the interview on September 21.


House Republicans have alleged that Chan was “the main conduit” between the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force and Big Tech companies as part of their effort to suppress the information on Hunter Biden’s laptop in the weeks leading up to the 2020 presidential election — which essentially amounted to election interference on the part of the FBI.

“The Committee on the Judiciary is conducting oversight of how and to what extent the Executive Branch has coerced and colluded with companies and other intermediaries to censor speech,” Jordan wrote in a letter to Chan accompanying the subpoena. “As the primary liaison between the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF) and social media companies, you are uniquely positioned to aid the Committee’s oversight.”

In a previous statement to House lawmakers, Chan claimed that the FBI had not communicated with Facebook outside of a meeting on October 14, 2020 — coincidentally the same day that the New York Post published the bombshell story about the Hunter Biden laptop. However, according to Jordan, Chan was involved in a “secret ‘follow-up’ call” with Facebook the next day — which contradicts a claim made by Chan during a November 2022 deposition in Missouri v. Biden, a government censorship case.

Chan also spoke to a Facebook employee that day who said: “Chan advised that he was up to speed on the current state of the matter within the FBI.”


The FBI agent told Facebook that “there was no current evidence to suggest any foreign connection … of the leaks,” according to documents published by Jordan.

In his letter to Chan, the Judiciary Committee chairman cited increasing evidence of collusion between the White House and social media companies to suppress and censor conservative content — which reaches far beyond just the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story.

“Numerous documents that have been made publicly available reflect the weaponization of the federal government’s power to censor speech online directly and by proxy. It is necessary for Congress to gauge the extent to which FBI agents coerced, pressured, worked with, or relied upon social media and other tech companies to censor speech,” Jordan wrote.
