Prospective House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) has been forced to take a hardline on issues that matter to the Republican base to get the votes necessary for the top job in the House.
He already promised to start impeachment proceedings against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas due to the crisis at the border.
Now, House Republicans have expressed support for bringing current and ex-Twitter staff in front of the House to answer questions about their decision to censor the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop in the runup to the 2020 Presidential election.
Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) the ranking Republican on the House Oversight Committee, was the first to make the announcement.
The announcement came just hours after the ‘Twitter Files’ were released by independent journalist Matt Taibbi.
The files show collusion between the US Government and senior Twitter executives to censor the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

The top Republican on the House Oversight Committee said that Twitter staff involved in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the 2020 presidential elections will face Congress and testify about their actions.
Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), the GOP ranking member on the Committee, made the remarks in a Friday appearance on Fox News after Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk dropped part one of the so-called “Twitter Files,” an expose of the inner workings of Twitter’s censorship machine.
“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,” Comer told program host Sean Hannity.
Musk and independent journalist Matt Taibbi on Friday unveiled a series of internal Twitter communications that give insight into steps taken by staff at the social media platform around suppressing the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story.
