Three Republican Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee said they will vote Tuesday to subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey after censoring stories from the New York Post about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley and Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters outside of the Senate Judiciary Committee room that they believe the social media giants are interfering in the 2020 elections by censoring and suspending accounts which share stories on Hunter Biden from the New York Post.

I will strongly support this measure for @jack to appear before @senjudiciary next Friday. The biased actions by @Twitter and @Facebook to censor the @nypost story about Hunter Biden and block conservative accounts needs to be fully investigated. https://t.co/JCMT7Lglev
