Republican Senators Announce Subpoena of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Over Tech Platform’s Censorship Rampage
Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced to reporters on Thursday that they intend to subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over his social media platform’s Draconian policies against free speech.
“We have seen Big Tech, we have seen Twitter and Facebook actively interfering in this election in a way that has no precedent in this country,” Cruz told the reporters.
Cruz explained the situation with regards to the New York Post and their story about Hunter Biden and the implications for former vice president and Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.
“Never before have we seen active censorship of a major press publication with serious allegations of one of the two candidates for president. That was last night,” he said.
Cruz explained how Twitter has doubled down with even more censorship against the Post after they released a follow-up article on Thursday detailing Hunter Biden’s crony deals with Chinese interests.
“This is election interference, and we are 19 days out from an election. It has no precedent in the history of democracy,” Cruz said.
Cruz noted he is working with Graham, who is Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to ready a subpoena for Dorsey to testify regarding his company’s hostile business practices next Friday.
“Let me be clear: I don’t know if these New York Post stories are true or not. Those are questions Vice President Biden should answer, but Twitter and Facebook and Big Tech billionaires don’t get to censor political speech and actively interfere in the election. That’s what they are doing right now,” he said.
“The point is that the power behind these platforms has been taken to a level that truly is dangerous, I think, the stopping Americans from having these tools available to them from exercising their ability to share information with their friends,” Graham said.
“I think a subpoena from the judiciary committee is absolutely appropriate and in order. It is absolutely vital. We believe in a free press in this country. We also believe in free elections, and the attempt to rig an election, which is what we are seeing here, by monopolies is unprecedented in American history,” Hawley said, adding that Facebook should be subpoenaed along with Twitter.

Big League Politics has reported on the crackdown by Big Tech against conservative whistleblowing, which has increased drastically in the runup to the election:
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe was recently locked out of his Twitter account for a nine-month-old tweet that supposedly violated a copyright shortly after he uncovered a Democrat ballot harvesting scheme operating out of Minneapolis, Minn. tied to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
The revelations demonstrated how the Somali-dominated areas of Minneapolis are rife with fraud, showing how importing the third world can negatively impact electoral integrity in the U.S.
O’Keefe was temporarily locked out of his account and unable to promote the ballot harvesting story for a short period. However, he eventually had functionality restore to his Twitter account. He believes the censorship is proving what a massive impact he is having in exposing the globalist establishment.
“They couldn’t even provide proof of a legitimate reason and point to the tweet in question!” O’Keefe wrote in a Tweet after returning to the social media platform.
“Some “copyright violation” and they wouldn’t even show the tweet in question,” he continued.
“[Project Veritas] has the tech overlords rattled…we’re winning,” O’Keefe added…
Big Tech is heavily invested in the Democrat vote steal against President Trump. These powerful globalist interests hope to pull off their anti-Trump color revolution in broad daylight and rape U.S. democracy in the process.
Social media corporations have emerged as a far greater threat to U.S. electoral integrity than the Rooskies ever could be.
