Rep. Schiff has replied to Musk’s question… and just like every politician before him, has failed to answer the question…instead choosing some snark and distraction to a narrative of his choice…
I don’t support censorship. Or hate speech.
As the (outgoing) CEO of Twitter, how about you? Why not do more to stop slurs against Black people, LGBTQ+ people, Jewish people, and others? Do you commit to providing the public with actual answers and data, not just tweets? https://t.co/aejdHNLud5

As we detailed earlier, in the wake of the most recent ‘Twitter Files’ release – which showed that the FBI infiltrated the social media giant, then primed its ‘Trust & Safety’ head to interpret things like the Hunter Biden release as foreign influence – CEO Elon Musk asked Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) whether he approved ‘hidden state censorship in direct violation of the Constitution.”

Some have speculated that the speed at which Twitter reacted to the NY Post‘s Hunter Biden bombshell was the result of a “powerful Dem” reaching out to the FBI’s operative, Elvis Chan.
There’s just no way that someone from Biden’s team or a powerful Dem like Schiff or Pelosi did not contact Chan in this 3-hour window.

Musk also advocated for a modern-day Church Commission, responding to a suggestion promoted by investor David Sacks.
We need a new Church Commission to investigate why the FBI and Intelligence Community are engaged in social media censorship, including the suppression of the Hunter Biden story. https://t.co/eUjK8RpY4S

“Hear, hear!!” Musk replied.
Of note, thought leaders such as Eric Weinstein have been calling for a new Church Commission for years to unravel revelations that the FBI participated in the Russiagate hoax against candidate – and then sitting President, Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, in response to the Twitter Files revelation that the FBI was deeply embedded at Twitter, Rep. Jim Jordan said: “I have concerns about whether the government was running a misinformation operation on We the People.”

Perhaps Jordan will get behind the new Church Commission idea?
