Emails show Twitter staff 'handled' things for the Biden campaign

 December 4, 2022

While conservatives have long accused social media platforms of colluding with Democrats, Twitter owner Elon Musk has just provided them with proof.

As journalist Matt Taibbi revealed last week, Musk provided him with emails showing that Twitter staff worked with the Biden campaign to censor negative reporting. 

Twitter "handled" requests

Taibbi's bombshell report came in a series of tweets on Friday which featured screenshots of emails sent by Twitter employees.

One exchange showed that a Twitter employee had been provided with a list of tweets by the Biden campaign that it wanted reviewed. Another employee then responded that the matter had been "handled."

However, the most egregious examples came in connection with Twitter's handling of the New York Post's reporting on Hunter Biden's laptop.

Taibbi noted how Twitter "took extraordinary steps to suppress the story" around Biden's laptop, even "removing links and posting warnings that it may be 'unsafe,'" steps which are normally reserved for malware and child pornography.

Despite initial allegations that the laptop story was Russian disinformation, mainstream media outlets such as CBS News have since confirmed its authenticity.

Republicans promise an investigation

Those revelations led Kentucky Rep. James Comer to tell Fox News host Jason Chaffetz that Twitter employees will be called to testify before the House Oversight Committee when he becomes its chairman next year.

"In January, when I become chairman of the House Oversight Committee, I can promise you this: every employee at Twitter that was involved in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story will have an opportunity to come before Congress and explain their actions to the American people," he said.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
