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.”
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), who on Wednesday also requested a Federal Election Commission investigation, said “the most powerful monopolies in American history are attempting to control the news and interfere in a federal election.”
