Republican Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins told former Twitter executives to prepare to be arrested for alleged criminal interference in the 2020 elections during a House Oversight Committee hearing on Twitter censorship Wednesday.
Higgins accused Twitter executives of working with the FBI to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story the month before the 2020 election in order to hide criminal evidence against the Biden family. He warned the social media executives that, after the investigation, arrests would be the next step.
“Bottom line is that the FBI had the Biden crime family laptop for a year,” Higgins said. “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 being reveled about Joe Biden one month before the 2020 election.”
“You ladies and gentlemen interfered with the United States of America’s 2020 presidential election knowingly, and that’s the bad news. It’s gonna get worse. Because this is the investigation part; later comes the arrest part,” he said. “Your attorneys are familiar with that.”
Revelations from The Twitter Files series showed that Twitter engaged in widespread censorship with frequent direction from FBI, which warned the company before the laptop story broke that a “hack and leak” story could break that involved Hunter Biden.
Twitter did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
