Jim Jordan: ‘Let’s Hope’ Dorsey and Zuckerberg are Subpoenaed By U.S. Senate
Jordan described the social media platform's censorship as 'concerning'
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said he hopes the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate would use its subpoena power to call Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and to testify about the suppression of the New York Post's explosive Hunter Biden story ahead of next month’s presidential election.
Jordan described the social media platforms' decision to bury the story of alleged improprieties committed by former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden as a major cause for the concern.
“Frankly, the other big question — let’s just be honest — is Twitter going to continue to censor The New York Post?” Jordan asked.
“Are they going to continue to block people from getting access to this information?”
“So let’s hope that Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg and these folks, that they are subpoenaed now by the United States Senate,” he continued.
“They are brought in front of the committee and asked the tough questions."
"Why are you preventing the American people from getting access to critical information about a candidate for the highest office in our country, for the most important position in the world?" Jordan asked.

Last week, a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) was filed by The Republican National Committee (RNC), alleging the platform's censorship amounts to “illegal corporate in-kind political contribution” to the Joe Biden campaign.
The complaint stated Twitter “is a partisan actor, run by partisan Democrats” and is “using its corporate resources to provide active support for Joe Biden’s campaign in violation of federal law."
It then demands the FEC must “conduct an immediate investigation” into Twitter’s “illegal in-kind contributions to the Biden campaign” and “impose the maximum penalty allowed under the law.”
Neon Nettle reported a former British deputy prime minister was also "involved in Facebook's decision" to bury the story exposing potential corruption.
The ex-UK leader, Sir Nick Clegg, was reportedly one of the company's executives that decided to "reduce the distribution" of the NY Post report that exposed the explosive scandal.
