On Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee held a committee hearing on Twitter’s suppression of conservative accounts as well as their suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.
Fired Twitter officials James Baker, Vijaya Gadde, and Yoel Roth were all present at the hearing as they got grilled by Republican lawmakers.
At one point during the hearing, Rep. Byron Donalds unleashed on the former Twitter executives, suggesting that they may have broken federal election laws by censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story.

The moment from Donalds came as he hammered for FBI agent and Twitter executive Jim Baker.
“Do you think Twitter will be in violation of federal election laws with the size of an in kind contribution to take down a story which is true because you guys thought you knew something with limited information?” Donalds asked.
“I’m not going to speculate on that today sir,” Baker replied.
