House Republicans demand answers from FBI director about Hunter Biden’s hard drive after NY Post exposé

Nineteen Republican lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives signed a letter demanding answers from FBI Director Christopher Wray about whether the bureau had possession of a hard drive that led to the controversial New York Post exposé.

Catherine Herridge of CBS News posted the letter to her social media account on Friday:

“Yesterday, the New York Post published an article entitled, ‘Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad.’ The article documents how a recently uncovered laptop and hard drive allegedly revealed e-mails to and from Hunter Biden that strongly indicated that former Vice President Joe Biden was, in fact, aware of his son’s overseas dealings,” the letter read.

The letter went on to address the allegation that the FBI was in possession of the hard drive in 2019.

“This action took place right at the end of the U.S. House of Representative’s impeachment sham against President Donald J. Trump, and right before the U.S. Senate tried the case. A large portion of the President’s legal defense case revolved around strong evidence that former Vice President Biden’s son, Hunter, was peddling his influence to his father to land lucrative jobs overseas that he might not have otherwise been qualified for,” the letter continued.

The letter went on to call it a “gross error of judgement” and a “severe violation of trust” if the FBI had been in possession of the hard drive and had not divulged the information that was so damaging to the Biden campaign.

They demanded the FBI answer if they had possession of the hard drive, whether they had informed the White House or the Department of Justice about the hard drive, and if they had authenticated the evidence.

The lawmakers asked for an answer to their letter from Wray by Thursday.

Also on Friday, Biden snapped at a reporter who asked him to respond to the New York Post story, and instead accused him of participating in a smear campaign against him.

Twitter caves and reverses policies on NY Post story ban after furious backlash

Twitter reversed course on Thursday and said that they would allow users to post a controversial New York post story damaging to the Joe Biden presidential campaign.

Twitter’s head of legal, policy, trust and safety, Vijaya Gadde, tweeted Thursday evening that after much public input, they would be changing their policies to allow people to post the story and others like it.

On Wednesday Twitter clarified that they had banned the posting of the story because it included personal and private information, something that is prohibited by Twitter’s terms of use. Critics of the social media giant accused it of banning the story in order to help Democrats and influence the election.

Gadde explained why they decided to change course.

“Over the last 24 hours, we’ve received significant feedback (from critical to supportive) about how we enforced our Hacked Materials Policy yesterday. After reflecting on this feedback, we have decided to make changes to the policy and how we enforce it,” she tweeted.

Gadde explained that the ban policy was implemented in 2018 but that Twitter had since then developed new tools to aid in stopping the spread of unsubstantiated reports.

“We believe that labeling Tweets and empowering people to assess content for themselves better serves the public interest and public conversation. The Hacked Material Policy is being updated to reflect these new enforcement capabilities,” Gadde continued.

“So, what’s changing? 1. We will no longer remove hacked content unless it is directly shared by hackers or those acting in concert with them 2. We will label Tweets to provide context instead of blocking links from being shared on Twitter,” she added.

She went on to thank everyone for their input.

Some, like reporter Andrew Feinberg were critical of the decision.

“How much did the bullying from GOP senators factor into this decision,” he tweeted to Gadde.

CNN analyst and former FBI agent Asha Rangappa accused Twitter of aiding foreign adversaries in spreading fake news.

Trump campaign advisor says White House is looking into taking legal action against Twitter for censoring NY Post Biden story

A top advisor of the Trump 2020 campaign said that the White House was looking into what legal actions they could take against Twitter for censoring the New York Post’s Biden story.

Trump Campaign senior adviser Steve Cortez made the comments to the Daily Caller on Thursday.

“The White House is very much looking into that as we speak — what can be done from the executive branch side, what can the DOJ do for example, or Department of Commerce,” Cortez said.

The social media company has been besieged by criticism over their banning of a story in the New York Post that could be very damaging to the Biden presidential campaign. The Post claims that they have obtained an email that proves Biden met with an official of a Ukrainian energy company because of the machinations of his son, Hunter Biden. The former vice president had previously denied meeting with the official.

Cortez said he did not know if the president was considering issuing an executive order about Twitter’s censorship.

On Wednesday, Twitter claimed in a statement that they had banned the story because it included personal and private information, which would be a violation of their terms of service.

Critics of the company claim that the censorship had more to do with protecting the Biden campaign.

Earlier on Thursday, FCC chairman Ajit Pai tweeted that he was going to release a clarification about Section 230 of the Communications Act in order to toughen restrictions on online companies like Twitter and Facebook. Many on the right have been calling for an outright repeal of the policy that would make internet companies more susceptible to legal action.

“If you get rid of Section 230, that’s the end of that,” said Trump in a phone interview on Fox News Business with Stuart Varney on Wednesday. “We are looking at a lot of things.”

The president went on to criticize the news media and their coverage of the story. “It’s out of control!” he concluded.
