U.S. Rep. James Comer, R-Kentucky, vows to subpoena three Twitter employees when he convenes the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform in January. Comer will take over as chairman of the committee now that Republicans have won the U.S. House.
“They will testify,” says Comer, speaking of the trio of Twitter employees who collectively made the decision to ban most tweets that mentioned the Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the 2020 general election.
The censors, who collectively hid the news to try to ensure a Biden victory, included James Baker. He’s the former counsel for the FBI, where he also was involved in crafting and publicizing the phony Russian collusion charges against former President Donald Trump. He later joined Twitter as its Deputy General Counsel, although he lost his job Tuesday. As Elon Musk put it, “In light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today.”
Baker will share the House witness stand with Yoel Roth, Twitter’s former head of site security, and Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s ex-chief of legal affairs. Will be interesting to hear their excuses, or see whether they just plead the fifth! Here, Comer appears on Fox News with Sean Hannity.
