On Wednesday members of Congress denounced the censorship and retaliation by Twitter and Facebook of the New York Post’s bombshell report about connections between Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and his father’s vice-presidential tenure.
Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri, both members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent letters condemning the censorship and calling for answers from the big tech companies.
In Cruz’s letter, he requested that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey answer why Twitter chose to censor that particular article, claiming it was “hypocritical” and an attempt to influence the presidential election. Cruz demanded that Dorsey submit Twitter’s answers to the Subcommittee on the Constitution.
“Twitter well knows its incredible ability to influence public dialogue by promoting some stories while suppressing others and it has plainly decided that the American should not be seeing or discussing this particular story which could significantly influence voters’ views of candidate Biden,” Cruz said.
