The CEOs of Facebook and Twitter have agreed to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer questions about why the New York Post’s bombshell reporting into Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings were censored or suppressed on their websites.
The New York Post’s official Twitter account has been suspended since the story broke on Oct. 14. Facebook brass said they would limit the visibility of the piece as well.
The news was first reported in a terse press release by the committee.
The timeline of the vote was held up by unnamed Senate Republicans earlier this week, many of whom worried about the “timing and scope of the maneuver,” Politico reported.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz previously told the website the duo would be called up before the election.
Both Zuckerberg and Dorsey are also scheduled to testify alongside Google CEO Sundar Pichai before the Senate Commerce Committee on Oct. 28. That hearing will focus on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act — which broadly protects tech giants from liabilities over how they moderate content on their platforms.
