Facebook ‘Election Integrity’ Expert Advised Biden on Ukraine Policy

Facebook’s election integrity expert reportedly advised Joe Biden on Ukraine policy while he served as Vice President, according to Breitbart.

Anna Makanju, who is currently a “legal expert working at Facebook, where she leads efforts to ensure election integrity on the platform,” formerly worked for Biden as the “special policy adviser for Europe and Eurasia.”

In her current role, Makanju helps Facebook decide which election-related content is acceptable, meaning, she helps the social media platform censor material that could “compromise” the integrity of the election, according to her Atlantic Council biography.

This revelation comes right after Facebook suppressed a New York Post story detailing corruption between Biden and Ukraine — a decision that could have been influenced by Makanju given her current and former roles.

She already has a history of defending Biden’s dealings with Ukraine.

In 2019, when transcripts of Biden’s phone calls with Ukrainian officials were released, Makanju reportedly said that the calls “would only strengthen Biden’s case that he acted properly,” according to the Washington Post.

Facebook claimed last week that it would not allow a New York Post report proving that Biden helped his son, Hunter Biden, with his foreign business dealings until a thorough fact-check had been completed.

“I will intentionally not link to the New York Post,” said Facebook spokesman Andy Stone. “I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform. This is part of our standard process to reduce the spread of misinformation. We temporarily reduce distribution pending fact-checker review.”

Shortly after Facebook decided to censor the story, Twitter followed suit.

When confronted about the blatant act of suppression, Twitter executives claimed that the New York Post report violated a 2018 policy prohibiting the sharing of “content obtained without authorization.”
