Investigating conspiracy theories on the taxpayer’s dime, that is:
The chairman of the new Republican-led House Oversight Committee has issued a flurry of letters as part of the panel’s first formal steps toward a long-promised investigation targeting President Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and social media companies that they allege sought to suppress negative stories about the president’s son that they claim could have impacted the 2020 presidential election…
Let the witness leading begin!
“The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating President Biden’s involvement in his family’s foreign business practices and international influence peddling schemes,” Comer wrote in the letter to Yellen…
…Comer sent letters to former top Twitter employees including former Twitter lawyer Vijaya Gadde, former head of trust and safety Yoel Roth, and former deputy general counsel James Baker, requesting that they testify at a public hearing during the week of Feb. 6.
“Your attendance is necessary because of your role in suppressing Americans’ access to information about the Biden family on Twitter shortly before the 2020 election,” Comer wrote to the former employees.
“Respect mah author-i-tay” –
Comer has previously claimed that the Treasury Department was providing “cover for the Biden family” after the department rejected Comer’s request last year for the same information when Republicans were in the minority. Noting in his letter to Yellen that the agency previously told him it would only respond to requests from committee chairs, Comer wrote, “I now make these requests pursuant to my authority as Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Accountability.”
It’s going to be a long, two years of Benghazi, innit?
