Hunter Biden: Congress to probe Facebook, Twitter censoring laptop story
Republican lawmakers from the US House Judiciary Committee launch a probe against Twitter and Facebook on their censoring of stories on Hunter Biden.
Republican lawmakers have launched an investigation against Twitter and Facebook regarding censoring the dissemination of media publications on Hunter Biden.
The Congressmen decided to launch the investigation, with Republicans on the House Oversight Committee sending letters to the White House and the National Archives on Tuesday asking for records related to Hunter Biden's communications with the White House during the Obama Administration.

"Hunter Biden’s connections throughout the Russian sphere of influence have now become especially relevant in the fast-moving and developing Russian war in Ukraine," the 14 GOP members wrote.
Before the 2020 elections, the New York Post published a story based on confidential correspondence they obtained that belongs to Hunter Biden, which was allegedly obtained from his laptop.
The messages indicate that he sought to use his father's position as president to advance his own business interests. Joe Biden, who was still presidential candidate at the time, claimed that Russia was behind the dissemination of this information.
The New York Times also published another article in March saying that some correspondence has been found by federal investigators to be genuine.
