House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy responded to Elon Musk releasing the “Twitter Suppression Files,” by calling for subpoenas. Appearing on Fox News, Kevin said:
“This is egregious what we are finding. Those 51 intel agents that signed a letter that said the Hunter Biden information was all wrong — was Russia collusion — many of them have a security clearance.
“We are going to bring them before committee, we are going to subpoena them before committee. Why did they sign it? Why did they lie to the American public? A Clapper, a Brennan?
“Why did you use the reputation that America was able to give to you more information, but use it for a political purpose and lie to the American public?” See Video Below
Journalist Michael Shellenberger released the latest installment of the Twitter files for Musk. He wrote:

“TWITTER FILES, PART 4. The Removal of Donald Trump: January 7. As the pressure builds, Twitter executives build the case for a permanent ban.
“On Jan 7, senior Twitter execs: create justifications to ban Trump, seek a change of policy for Trump alone, distinct from other political leaders, express no concern for the free speech or democracy implications of a ban.
“For years, Twitter had resisted calls to ban Trump. “Blocking a world leader from Twitter,” it wrote in 2018, “would hide important info… [and] hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions.”
“But after the events of Jan 6, the internal and external pressure on Twitter CEO @jack grows. Former First Lady @michelleobama , tech journalist @karaswisher , @ADL , high-tech VC @ChrisSacca , and many others, publicly call on Twitter to permanently ban Trump.
“On January 7, @Jack emails employees saying Twitter needs to remain consistent in its policies, including the right of users to return to Twitter after a temporary suspension. After, Roth reassures an employee that “people who care about this… aren’t happy with where we are.”
“Around 11:30 am PT, Roth DMs his colleagues with news that he is excited to share.
“GUESS WHAT,” he writes. “Jack just approved repeat offender for civic integrity.”
“The new approach would create a system where five violations (“strikes”) would result in permanent suspension.
“The *only* serious concern we found expressed within Twitter over the implications for free speech and democracy of banning Trump came from a junior person in the organization. It was tucked away in a lower-level Slack channel known as “site-integrity-auto.
“This might be an unpopular opinion but one off ad hoc decisions like this that don’t appear rooted in policy are imho a slippery slope… This now appears to be a fiat by an online platform CEO with a global presence that can gatekeep speech for the entire world…”
The evening of January 7, the same junior employee who expressed an “unpopular opinion” about “ad hoc decisions… that don’t appear rooted in policy,” speaks up one last time before the end of the day.https://t.co/DKyQmDhQvB
