Twitter Suspends Trump Campaign, House GOP Accounts Over Biden Scandal As Jack Dorsey’s ‘Mea Culpa’ Proves Meaningless

After yesterday’s cross-platform social media embargo on a New York Post exposé detailing explosive evidence against Joe and Hunter Biden, Twitter is at it again on Thursday – suspending the Trump campaign’s official account for sharing a video accusing the former Vice President of being a “liar who has been ripping off the country for years.”

According to emails obtained on a laptop reportedly abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop (which also contained photos of Hunter smoking crack and an alleged sex tape), Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at Burisma – a Ukrainian energy giant paying Hunter upwards of $50,000 per month to sit on its board.

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” reads the email.

In another email from May 2014, Burisma board adviser Vadym Pozharskiy asked Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.

In response to the allegations, Twitter and Facebook aggressively censored anyone sharing the Post story on Wednesday – suspended the Post itself while claiming that it was distributing ‘hacked material.’

The social media giant also blocked the official account of the House Judiciary GOP for sharing yesterday’s story.

Twitter’s response sparked such a political backlash – with accusations of partisan election interference flying, that CEO Jack Dorsey issued a mea culpa, admitting that the company hadn’t offered a sufficient explanation as to why the company blocked the Biden story (while failing to explain why they continue to allow unfounded Trump-Russia conspiracies to remain on the platform). Dorsey said that there had been a ‘lack of communication’ surrounding Twitter’s decision, and that “Our communication around our actions on the NYPost article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable.”

Twitter is also now hiding behind the Washington Post‘s ‘confirmation’ that Joe Biden didn’t push out a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter.

Yet, despite Dorsey’s mea culpa, Twitter is at it again on Thursday, censoring the Post‘s second installment of ‘Bidengate’ – citing never-before-seen emails between Hunter Biden and various individuals connected to a major Chinese energy firm that failed earlier this year after its chairman – a party insider with deep ties to China’s military – was “disappeared” by China’s state security apparatus.

A subject line on the email, dated May 13, 2017 read “Expectations”, and it included details of “remuneration packages” for six individuals involved in the new business venture (the nature of the business wasn’t clear, though it appears to be related to Biden’s international consulting business). However, Biden’s partner in the business appears to be CEFC China Energy, the now-defunct energy firm mentioned above.

In response, Twitter is in full censorship mode, again

What would Twitter do if this was a scandal involving the Trumps? Based on the unverified Russia allegations they continue to allow on the platform, it becomes a rhetorical question.
