Grassley on Big Tech Censorship and Hunter Biden Investigation

Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On Big Tech Censorship and Hunter Biden Investigation
Monday, October 19, 2020
 
Last week, news broke about Hunter Biden’s questionable financial dealings.
 
That information, allegedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop, appears to show that Joe Biden may have been more aware of his son’s financial deals with foreign despots and criminals than he’s admitted to the American people. 
 
That information was quickly censored by Big Tech companies.
 
Just today, Director Ratcliffe said that Hunter Biden’s laptop issue isn’t part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
 
You know what actually is fake news? The Steele Dossier. 
 
But, I don’t recall reporters and Big Tech censoring the false reporting about President Trump.
 
Instead the liberal media did the opposite – they became super spreaders of false reporting across the world.
 
What happened last week is election interference and anti-conservative bias, and Facebook and Twitter are guilty.
 
Democrats and liberals in the press can’t have veto authority over information just because it makes their nominee look bad. They can’t have a double standard.
 
Vice President Biden owes the American people answers.
