McCarthy hints GOP will look into Twitter over 2020 election

Saturday, 03. December 2022 07:26

Kevin McCarthy, the Republican leader in the United States House of Representatives and the lower congressional chamber's likely next speaker, signaled that GOP lawmakers will investigate Twittter Inc.'s actions ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

"We're learning in real-time how Twitter colluded to silence the truth about Hunter Biden's laptop just days before the 2020 presidential election. In 32 days, the new House Republican majority will get answers for the American people and the accountability they deserve," he tweeted.

After a journalist used leaked company correspondence for a report about Twitter's moves to suppress media articles about the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop and other similar actions by the social media firm, new Twitter CEO Elon Musk said the documents showed potential violations of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
