One conservative lawmaker wants every Twitter employee who was allegedly involved in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story to testify before a congressional committee.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY), a member of the House Oversight Committee, shared the comments on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Friday.

“Well, in January, Jason, when I take your old position as Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, I can promise you this, every employee at Twitter who 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. This was a huge story,” Comer said.
“But this story’s just beginning, Jason, because we’re going to have every single person at Twitter that was involved in this in front of the House Oversight Committee as soon as possible,” he added.

“[W]e knew that the Democratic National Committee was communicating with Twitter. We knew the Biden campaign was communicating with Twitter,” Comer continued.
“That’s why, in April of this year, we, on the House Oversight Committee, requested that Twitter preserve all documents and correspondence between Twitter executives and the Democratic National Committee and the Biden campaign with respect to the Hunter Biden laptop story,” Comer concluded.
The Twitter Files
“On Friday, Elon Musk criticized Twitter’s former management for its decision to limit access to a New York Post story on Hunter Biden’s laptop three weeks before the 2020 presidential election,” Axios reported.
“Musk allowed newsletter author Matt Taibbi to review internal Twitter documents over the decision. Called the “Twitter Files,” Taibbi’s report showed a back-and-forth debate within Twitter about the story and the thinking behind the ban,” it added.
Appearing on Hannity Friday night, Kentucky Republican James Comer clamored for the hearing, asserting Twitter will answer for the alleged crimes when he becomes chair in January. https://t.co/2bXgKF6Rmh

The Twitter Files reveal that the suppression of the story was not based on company policy but rather on direct contacts from Democrats.
The shocking evidence is reportedly only part of the history Musk intends to share regarding internal censorship within the company’s past.
The future may reveal several other examples that help to offer more insight into Twitter’s past censorship and its impact on world events.
