BREAKING: House Republicans Call for Emergency Hearing After Facebook, Twitter Block Negative Hunter Biden Story

Sparked by Twitter and Facebook’s blocking of a negative New York Post article about Hunter Biden, ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform James Comer (R-Ky.) and other top republicans on Thursday urged Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) to hold an emergency hearing on election interference and Big Tech’s censorship.

“Big Tech’s silencing of conservative viewpoints and censorship of news undermines the integrity of the 2020 election and harms Americans’ First Amendment right to freedom of speech,” the GOP members wrote in their letter to Maloney.

“Since the election is in only 19 days and other Big Tech platforms continuously limit speech based on political ideology, we must immediately hold a hearing to learn who is responsible for making these decisions and what policies enable Big Tech to selectively limit speech on social media,” the Republican members continued.

Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee said Thursday they would be issuing a subpoena to Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, saying that blocking the Biden report may constitute election interference given the country is 19 days away from Nov. 3.

“This is election interference and we are 19 days out from an election,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told reporters on Thursday, adding that the Judiciary Committee “will issue a subpoena to Jack Dorsey” for next Friday, Oct. 23.

Cruz and Chairman Graham said they will hold a vote on issuing a subpoena.
