Elvis Chan subject to subpoena

Elvis Chan, point man for the FBI to social media platforms, is under subpoena by the House Judiciary Committee.

Special Agent Elvis Chan, FBI, yesterday backed out of an appearance before the House Judiciary Committee and its Weaponization Subcommittee. So now the Judiciary Committee has issued a subpoena to compel his attendance. Whether this will succeed is anyone’s guess – but Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Chairman of both the Committee and Subcommittee, faces increasing pressure to deliver some kind of tangible result.

The role of Elvis Chan

Elvis Chan is, of course, the Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Field Office in San Francisco, California. Platform X, once known as Twitter, has had its headquarters in San Francisco since its founding. So Elvis Chan has met regularly with the Twitter Trust and Safety Team. On July 4, Judge Terry A. Doughty of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana found that communications to Twitter/X (and other social media) by Chan and Foreign Intelligence Task Force Section Chief Laura Dehmlow have been of a threatening, or at least strongly encouraging, nature. Recently the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals said the same. Accordingly they affirmed Judge Doughty’s order to enjoin Chan from meeting any further with any Trust and Safety Team.

Justice Samuel A. Alito of the U.S. Supreme Court has stayed that injunction until midnight September 22. He has also set a Wednesday afternoon deadline for written responses for his colleagues to consider. (See docket pages for Missouri v. Biden, at District Court, Appeals Court, and Supreme Court levels.)

But more to the point, Chairman Jordan had an arrangement for Chan to appear voluntarily for a transcribed interview with him and other Members of his Committee. Yesterday morning, Chan didn’t show – possibly because the Justice Department ordered him not to. For that reason, the Judiciary Committee issued a formal subpoena, compelling him to appear on Thursday for a deposition.

Thread by the Judiciary Committee

Yesterday afternoon the Judiciary Committee dropped a thread explaining their position, and including their demand letter to Elvis Chan.


In addition, the Weaponization Subcommittee dropped this solitary post containing the demand letter:

The letter itself takes an interesting tone. Not only does it accuse Chan of lack of candor, but it also suggests his personal interests differ from those of the FBI and the DOJ.

Reaction to the thread consists of equal parts support and skepticism. But the skeptics don’t seem to understand that Chairman Jordan’s Committee did issue a subpoena to Chan. Still, this example of skepticism is especially instructive:

Other reaction to both the thread and the Weaponization Subcommittee post consists of catcalling by obvious Democrats. One user shared the profile of candidate Tamie Wilson, who will run against Jordan in the general election. (That is, if she wins the primary. She ran against Jordan last Midterms, and lost.)


Regular readers will recall our saying that Elvis Chan and Laura Dehmlow definitely perjured themselves. They did so both at the green table and at deposition. So on one hand, this next deposition gives Chan a chance to cut his losses and “rat out” his masters. On the other, if he’s a conscienceless servant of the elite, that deposition will accomplish little or nothing.


Almost certainly, Judge Doughty must be taking notes. The next question is whether Mr. Justice Alito, and Justices Barrett, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, Thomas, and Chief Justice Roberts will also take notes. True enough, Elvis Chan will never give evidence before the Supreme Court, for that Court is not a trial court. But Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar will find the government’s case far more difficult to defend.

The relevance of the Hunter Biden Laptop story is simply this: the FBI directly interfered in the Election of 2020. Now the American people know it. So if, as seems likely, the Election of 2024 is a rematch, President Joe Biden is more likely to lose. Even one who votes the cemetery, or repeat-votes those who move and re-register, one still needs a baseline. And Joe Biden is already losing his baseline. People watching him and his family getting away with obvious venal shakedown, while Donald Trump faces charges no one should have brought, will not vote for him.

The Democrats know this. So expect the higher-ups to look for another candidate. Any other candidate (except Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.).
