Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is facing a massive crisis.
His son Hunter’s corrupt business dealings are now out in the open.
And now this criminal investigation about one email is bad news for Joe Biden.
The New York Post published a story revealing emails from a Burisma executive to Hunter Biden thanking him for setting up a meeting with Vice President Joe Biden which appeared to show Joe Biden was in the loop on Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings.
Facebook suppressed the reach of the post and Twitter prevented users from tweeting the article or sending it as a direct message.
Twitter later shut down the accounts of the New York Post, the Trump campaign and press secretary Kayleigh McEnany because they shared the story.
President Trump and his supporters saw clear political bias and election rigging in action.
Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley accused Twitter of violating a federal election for violating campaign finance in-kind contribution limits.
Senator Hawley wrote:
“A ‘contribution’ includes ‘anything of value . . . for the purpose of influencing any election for Federal office.’ 52 U.S.C. § 30101(8)(A)(i). Twitter’s and Facebook’s active suppression of public speech about the New York Post article appears to constitute contributions under federal law. There can be no serious doubt that the Biden campaign derives extraordinary value from depriving voters access to information that, if true, would link the former Vice President to corrupt Ukrainian oligarchs. And this censorship manifestly will influence the presidential election.”
These possible campaign finance violations by two of the most powerful corporations in America come only weeks before Election Day, and while millions of Americans are in the midst of voting.
Hawley then demanded the Federal Election Commission investigate Twitter.
“I ask that the FEC take immediate action to investigate these potential violations and, if appropriate, take remedial action to prevent further interference with the 2020 presidential election,” Hawley added in his letter to the FEC.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz echoed Hawley’s call for a criminal investigation into social media censorship of a story that would hurt Joe Biden as a campaign finance violation.
“But Twitter’s censorship of this story is quite hypocritical, given its willingness to allow users to share less-well-sourced reporting critical of other candidates for public office,” Cruz wrote in a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. “Accordingly, this can only be seen as an obvious and transparent attempt by Twitter to influence the upcoming election.”
The Senate Judiciary Committee announced that on Tuesday it will vote to subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to testify this coming Friday.
That is a welcome first step to curbing Big Tech’s election-rigging scheme.
