Elon Musk released documents exposing the government’s collusion with social media.
It’s shocking how the government wants to suppress Americans’ freedom of speech.
Tucker Carlson blasted Democrats’ violation of the law with these six words.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Friday that documents released by Elon Musk and journalist Matt Taibbi show a “systemic violation” of the First Amendment.
“One of the most extraordinary moments in the history of social media is unfolding right now as we speak. It began when Elon Musk took control of Twitter. When he bought the company, he promised to reveal its corruption, the extent to which Twitter engaged in politically motivated censorship, including the unlawful illegal censorship of American citizens at the direction of the U.S. government.”
The Twitter documents were released to Rolling Stone contributing editor Matt Taibbi, who posted a long thread on the platform noting how Twitter executives made moderation decisions that came from the Biden campaign.
“Well, tonight, less than an hour ago, Musk began to make good on that promise. Twitter shared a trove of internal documents with Matt Taibbi of Substack, these documents are coming out as we speak and what they prove is very serious,” Carlson said. “Those documents show a systematic violation of the First Amendment, the largest example of that in modern history.”
Right before the 2020 election Facebook and Twitter censored a New York Post article reporting on emails from a laptop Hunter Biden abandoned at a computer repair shop which the FBI had within their possession.
The documents Musk released revealed the decision to shut down the Hunter Biden story “was made at the highest levels of the company, but without the knowledge of CEO Jack Dorsey, with former head of legal, policy and trust Vijaya Gadde playing a key role.”
House Republicans have signaled that they will work to bring in “every” single employee involved in efforts to restrict the spread of reporting about the Hunter Biden laptop.
“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,” Rep. James Comer (R-KY), who is currently the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, told Jason Chaffetz, a former congressman who was guest-hosting in place of Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Friday night.
“This was a huge story,” he added. Comer then went a bit further, saying, “This story’s just beginning … 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.”
