(ConservativeSense.com) – Former employees of Twitter are set to testify next week to the House Oversight Committee regarding the censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 presidential election.
This will be the first time former company executives will discuss Twitter’s decision to block a New York Post article about Hunter Biden’s laptop before Congress, a decision that many feel had a direct impact on the 2020 election.
The hearing on Feb. 8th will see testimonies from former chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, former deputy general counsel James Baker, and former head of safety and integrity Yoel Roth, all of whom were dismissed when Elon Musk took control of Twitter.
Shortly after Musk’s takeover of the company, he began to release what he calls “the Twitter Files” through various journalists. These releases demonstrated evidence that the Hunter Biden laptop story was deliberately suppressed, among other questionable choices of the social media platform executives, such as how the decision was made to suspend Former President Donald Trump after the Jan. 6th riots at the Capitol.
In October 2020, the New York Post released a story about a copy of a laptop hard drive belonging to President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, who left it at a computer repair shop in Delaware 18 months prior.
The hard drive copy was given to the Post by Rudy Giuliani, former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, which raised questions about whether or not the story could be trusted. When the story first came out, Twitter blocked people from sharing links to it for days. Facebook also suppressed the story.
Chairman of the Oversight committee Rep. James Comer said they are investigating the Biden family for “influence peddling” and to “make sure that our national security is not compromised,” citing claims of possible Russian interference in 2016 and concerns of the same in 2020.
Now that Republicans have control of the House this won’t be the last hearing to focus on the Biden family.
