House GOP Demands Answers From Fired Twitter Execs Behind Biden Laptop Cover-Up

Rep. James Comer has requested three former Twitter executives implicated in the cover-up of the Hunter Biden laptop story to appear before the House Oversight Committee next month.

On Friday, journalist Matt Taibbi published internal documents given to him by new Twitter owner Elon Musk, revealing just how the Hunter Biden laptop story was covered up by the Big Tech platform in October of 2020. As Valiant News reported:

Internal Twitter emails between public policy executives and the Trust and Safety team confirms that users were being removed for allegedly violating the “hacked materials” policy, despite no evidence to suggest any hacking was involved. Taibbi claimed that the decision was “made at the highest levels of the company, but without the knowledge of CEO Jack Dorsey,” and that Vijaya Gadde, the head of Trust and Safety at the time, had played a “key role” in ensuring discussion around the laptop was censored.

Following the publication of the Twitter documents, Rep. James Comer, the current Republican ranking member on the House Oversight Committee, sent letters to Gadde, along with former Trust and Safety head Yoel Roth, and James Baker, former Deputy General Counsel, asking them to appear in front of the committee in January.

Watch an excerpt of the interview on Spreely.video:

“The American people deserve to know why Twitter took down the Hunter Biden laptop story even when your colleagues were questioning the rationale for suppressing the story,” Comer wrote in his letters. “Your testimony will provide the Committee critical context regarding the Twitter censorship team’s decision to prohibit users from sharing information about a presidential candidate.”

“What we’re going to ask them is, who was influencing your decision making?” Comer said in an appearance with Sean Hannity on Fox News. “Did you do this unilaterally, or did you do this based on what you were told by the Biden campaign, from the DNC, or even worse, as I suspect, from the FBI?” he added. “Why were they so intent on suppressing this story?”

Rep. Jim Jordan, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, noted that Baker had previously been the chief counsel at the FBI “back when they spied on President Trump’s campaign.”

 

“The way you stop it is to get the facts, everything out there, like Elon Musk has started, but we’re going to continue,” Jordan said. “You get the facts out there, and that’s the first step to making sure this kind of baloney and garbage never happens again.”

Speaking to Maria Bartiromo following the release of the files, Comer added that House Republicans were “pretty confident that this wasn’t an isolated incident,” and that they believe “numerous officials within our federal government have been communicating on behalf of the Biden White House, to Twitter,” as to who they can censor and ban.

“This raises a whole host of ethical issues,” Comer argued. “The 2020 stuff that he released with the DNC on the laptop story, that raises campaign finance violations. There are a lot of problems for the Biden administration and the Biden campaign right now.”

  1. WHEN THE “REAL AMERICANS” TAKE OVER IN JANUARY, THEY SHOULD TAKE THIS QUACKO (THE SON OF A REAL QUACKO) DOWN AS HARD AS THEY CAN, IF THEY CAN PUT HIM IN JAIL, SO BE IT. NO SYMPATHY LOST HERE.
