When the nation discovered that Twitter had been suppressing the very real news regarding Hunter Biden’s “laptop from Hell”, there were immediate and rather powerful criticisms abound.
For many, this sort of arbitrary censorship represented more than just the filthy whims of the sultans of Silicon Valley, but honest-to-goodness electoral interference.
Now, as the Republican Party prepares to retake the House of Representatives in January, likely incoming House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is set to turbocharge an investigation into the matter.
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy said Saturday on FNC’s “One Nation” that he will bring the 51 intel agents that signed a letter that said the Hunter Biden information was Russia collusion to testify at a congressional hearing.
Host Brian Kilmeade asked, “We saw the revelations coming out of Twitter as Elon Musk is unmasking the corruption that existed there and the denials that they testified about. So for you personally you have another move you want to make. Not only do we want to hear from the former executives of Twitter and the other entities, but you have something else you want to say.”
McCarthy said, Yeah, I do. This is egregious what we are finding. They should not have section 230 to start out with, but we also have to go further. What did Facebook and Google do as well because they became an arm of the Democratic Party and an arm of government.”
There was more where that came from.
He continued, “Those 51 intel agents that signed a letter that said the Hunter Biden information was all wrong — was Russia collusion — many of them have a security clearance. We are going to bring them before committee. I’m going to have them have a hearing. Why did they sign it? Why did they lie to the American public? A Clapper, a Brennan? Why did you use the reputation that America was able to give to you more information, but use it for a political purpose and lie to the American public?”
The Hunter Biden scandals were bad enough, but the suppression of the story has been a far more detrimental piece of the puzzle for the Democrats, who now appear to be pulling some clandestine strings behind the scenes, hoping to keep themselves in power at all costs.
