Ted Cruz: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to be subpoenaed over Hunter Biden story censorship
Twitter is actively interfering in the presidential election. Senator Ted Cruz isn't going to let them get away with it without a fight.
Less than three weeks before the most consequential election of our lifetime, Twitter, Facebook, and other Big Tech companies have censored a NY Post article detailing Hunter Biden's use of his father's influence to secure more pay and a longer contract with Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Dozens of prominent accounts and pages have been suspended for sharing the link to the article. Meanwhile, Twitter claimed the censorship was over "hacked" details.
This morning, Senators Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, and Josh Hawley announced they will be voting on a subpoena to hear testimony from Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter. Hawley noted that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg should be subpoenaed as well.
“Chairman Lindsey Graham and I have discussed this at length and the committee today will be noticing a markup on Tuesday to issue a subpoena to Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next Friday,” Cruz said.
The story is consequential to the election, not only because it shows the connection and potential corruption between Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden and Ukrainian officials, but also because Biden has said multiple times in the past that he never spoke to anyone about Burisma. He even claimed he knew nothing about the dealings Hunter Biden had in Ukraine. The campaign has now changed their story to indicate the meeting he did have with heads of Burisma were "not official."
Twitter and Facebook censorship has been a problem for a long time, but as our EIC noted this morning, there has never been real action by Republicans over the issue. There has been plenty of talk and occasional threats, but not actions. It seems the Senate Judiciary Committee is finally ready to act.
Big Tech has bullied conservatives for long enough. With Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, and Josh Hawley taking action, we may not see a resolution before the election but we may finally get to see the truth exposed.
