House Oversight Holds Hearing on Twitter's Suppression of Biden Laptop Story

On Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee held a much-anticipated hearing entitled, “Protecting Speech from Government Interference and Social Media Bias, Part 1: Twitter’s Role in Suppressing the Biden Laptop Story." The witnesses were former Twitter employees, including Yoel Roth, the former Global Head of Trust & Safety.

For background:

Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.

The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month. . .

The blockbuster correspondence — which flies in the face of Joe Biden’s claim that he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” — is contained in a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer.

Twitter suppressed this story in the weeks leading up to the 2020 presidential election.

Despite recent admissions that the laptop is indeed Hunter Biden's, Democrats are still trying to twist the facts to fit their narrative:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slammed the House Oversight Committee's hearing on Twitter's decision to repress the Hunter Biden laptop story in the fall of 2020 and called the story "half-fake." 

"We could be talking about the cost of prescription drugs, abortion rights, civil rights, voting rights, but instead we're talking about Hunter Biden's half fake laptop story. I mean, this is an embarrassment, but I’ll go into it," she said during the hearing.

The Democratic congresswoman also said the hearing was a waste of time and public resources.

However, statements and questioning by Republican members of the Committee showed just how important Wednesday's hearing was—covering other topics like suppression of Twitter accounts having important conversations about the COVID-19 pandemic and radical gender ideology in addition to the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.

Wednesday's hearing explored just one piece of a broader pattern of corruption surrounding the Biden family.
