Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) didn’t hold back at the House Oversight Committee hearing on Twitter censorship.
Higgins told Twitter executives, Vijaya Gadde, James Baker, Annika Collier Navaroli and Yoel Roth, they may be arrested for interfering with the 2020 presidential election.
“For the submission for the record, I’d like to consent to submit the Twitter files dated December the 8th posted by the New York Post regarding the suppression of conservative commentators,” Higgins stated.
“I’d like to also submit for the record a timeline of events which cited sources outline and strong evidence of the Biden family organized criminal actions would certainly indicate that we’ve crossed a threshold of reasonable suspicion.”
“The bottom line is that the FBI had the Biden Crime Family laptop for a year. They knew it was leaking. They knew it would hurt the Biden campaign. So the FBI used its relationship with Twitter to suppress criminal evidence from being revealed about Joe Biden one month before the 2020 election,” Higgins added.
“You ladies and gentlemen interfered with the United States of America 2020 presidential election, knowingly and willingly. That’s the bad news. It’s gonna get worse. Because this is the investigation part. Later comes the arrest part your attorneys are familiar with that.”
“Mr. Chairman I’d like to spend five hours with these ladies and gentlemen doing depositions surely yet to come.”

Here’s a Rumble backup from Daily Caller:
Fox News reported:
Higgins accused the FBI of using its relationship with Twitter to suppress criminal evidence against Joe Biden, a month before the 2020 election.
“You, ladies and gentlemen, interfered with the United States of America 2020 presidential election, knowingly and willingly,” Higgins said. “That’s the bad news, it’s gonna get worse because this is the investigation part. Later comes the arrest part. Your attorneys are familiar with that.”
The FBI rejected the characterization of an inappropriate relationship with Twitter and issued a statement in response to Higgins’ comments.
“The FBI does not instruct or direct any social media company to censor an account or remove information from their platform. In carrying out its law enforcement mission, the FBI receives voluntarily provided information from these companies, when the company believes there is a serious risk of death or serious physical injury,” the FBI said in a statement obtained by Fox News correspondent David Spunt.
“In addition, the FBI also shares identified malign foreign influence information with these companies. The information we provide in these circumstances is specific to foreign actors — such as Russia, China, and Iran and their activities, we do not provide information based on content or narratives without attribution to a foreign actor. We may also alert social media companies about intentional attempts to post disinformation about voting times, places, or dates, which may be a federal crime. Private sector entities independently make decisions about what, if any, action they take on their platforms and for their customers in response to information we share.”
