Twitter Files: ‘Accountability Is Coming’
Can we really have accountability? We definitely need it. Let’s pray that God steps in wherever our government fails.
From The Center Square. A series of document dumps called the “Twitter files” have exposed the social media companies’ collusion with federal law enforcement and the Democratic Party to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story before the 2020 election, and now lawmakers are calling for consequences.

Senators joined in as well. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz discussed the issue on his podcast, “The Verdict,” released Monday.
“Twitter acted as an arm of the Biden campaign,” Cruz said. …

Two years later, more and more details of the Hunter Biden story have been verified by leading news outlets.
Elvis Chan, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI San Francisco Cyber Branch, testified in a deposition before Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana. Chan said in the testimony that the FBI met with Twitter weekly leading up to the election.
“Elvis Chan’s deposition last week shed more light on the FBI’s role in the government’s unlawful censorship enterprise, as it made clear that the FBI orchestrated social media censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story,” said Jenin Younes, litigation counsel at the New Civil Liberties Alliance. …
