Representative Ro Khanna (D-CA) said on this week’s broadcast of FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that he was “open” to congressional hearings on Twitter’s suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 presidential election.
Khanna said, “I have said I am open to hearings in Congress on this. There are two competing values. On the one hand, we don’t want censorship. We don’t want to have people censored or boxed out, or shadow-banned and removed from Twitter because of their viewpoint. On the other hand, we do want respect, and we don’t want accounts that are filled with anti-Semitism or just spewing racism or hate on these accounts. And I think Congress should have an honest, thoughtful conversation about how we uphold both of those values.”
Anchor Maria Bartiromo said, “So hearings would be good, talking about how this took place to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Do you believe this can get better? Can we take the politicization out of federal agencies as well as the media?”
Khanna said, “I do, Maria, because I think if we want my hope of coming together as a country, the first thing we have to do is say people have to be able to express their view. We can’t tell people we disagree with please be silent. We don’t want to hear you. We don’t want to engage with you. That’s going to create further polarization.”
In 2018 and 2020, Breitbart Senior Contributor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer published Secret Empires and Profiles in Corruption. Each book hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and exposed how Hunter Biden and Joe Biden flew aboard Air Force Two in 2013 to China before Hunter’s firm inked a $1.5 billion deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China less than two weeks after the trip. Schweizer’s work also uncovered the Biden family’s other vast and lucrative foreign deals and cronyism. Breitbart Political Editor Emma-Jo Morris’ investigative work at the New York Post on the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” also captured international headlines when she, along with Miranda Devine, revealed that Joe Biden was intimately involved in Hunter’s businesses, appearing to even have a 10 percent stake in a company the scion formed with officials at the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party.
