House GOP Orders Twitter Board To Preserve Documents


Elon Musk’s ongoing fight with the Twitter board has now reached the halls of government.

The board made headlines when it adopted a ‘poison pill‘ strategy to counter Musk’s bid for the company; a bid that he now claims he has the financing for.

Musk responded by pointing out that Twitter’s board is essentially foregoing their fiduciary duty to their shareholders by blatantly denying attempts to increase shareholder value…

Twitter has always struggled financially as a company.

Now, House Judiciary Committee Republicans are ordering Twitter’s board to preserve all documents relating to Musk’s takeover attempt of the company.

Take a look:

CNBC confirmed:

In letters shared exclusively with CNBC, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee asked Twitter Board Chairman Bret Taylor and other members of the board to preserve any messages from official or personal accounts, including through encryption software, that relate to Twitter’s consideration of Musk’s offer.


The Epoch Times had more details:

Reps. Steve Chabot, Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Ken Buck (R-Colo.), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Mike Johnson, Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Tom McClintock (R-Calif.), Gregory Steube (R-Fla.), Tom Tiffany (R-Wis.), Chip Roy (R-Texas), Dan Bishop (R-N.C.), Michelle Fischbach (R-Minn.), Victoria Spartz (R-Ind.), Scott Fitzgerald (R-Wis.), Cliff Bentz (R-Ore.), and Burgess Owens (R-Utah) also signed the letters.
