This week, our nation was blindsided by one heck of an October surprise…allegedly.
That addendum, “allegedly”, comes as Twitter and other social media platforms continue to push back against accounts who share information regarding this bombshell, no matter where they come from.
The story is as such: A laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden had its hard drive copied, and that copy was given to former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Information from the purported laptop continues to leak to the press, and Twitter, along with their contemporaries in social media, are attempting to stem the flow of this material.
Freedom advocates and pundits have decried the tactics as biased and totalitarian, while these social media companies hide behind their status as private corporations.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey can run, but he can’t hide from the Senate, however.
Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans on Thursday said they will hold a hearing Tuesday to compel Twitter’s chief executive to testify about censorship of The Post’s reporting on Ukraine- and China-related documents from an alleged Hunter Biden hard drive.
“This is election interference and we’re 19 days out from an election. It has no precedent in the history of democracy. The Senate Judiciary Committee wants to know what the hell is going on,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told reporters in a Senate office building hallway.
“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.”
President Trump has faced a number of social media issues during his presidency, often stemming from the alleged censorship of conservative viewpoints online. The Commander in Chief has gone so far as to hold a social media symposium in the Rose Garden, hoping to address the issue.
