Elon Musk Meets With Kevin McCarthy And Hakeem Jeffries

Twitter CEO Elon Musk took a trip to the U.S. Capitol on Thursday to speak with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), the billionaire tech mogul reported on his social media platform.

“Just met with [McCarthy] & [Jeffries] to discuss ensuring that this platform is fair to both parties,” Musk posted online.

McCarthy, who had his 58th birthday on Thursday, responded to reporters asking what he and Musk discussed by saying, “He came to wish me happy birthday. We’ve been friends for years.”

Breitbart News noted that Musk is a “longtime McCarthy donor,” and that he appeared at a Wyoming Republican retreat hosted by McCarthy last summer.

Musk’s meeting with Jeffries was incidental, according to the New York Post.

Judiciary Committee chair Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) also reportedly met with Musk, staying in the speaker’s office for almost an hour while he was still there. He notably is also slated to chair the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government and has indicated he will be looking deeper into the “Twitter files,” especially its revelation that the FBI sent Twitter over $3 million after the two groups worked together.

This meeting comes before a planned congressional hearing in February, in which the House Oversight Committee will be addressing Twitter’s censorship of the New York Post’s October 2020 bombshell story surrounding the questionable contents found on Hunter Biden’s laptop.

As the outlet points out, Twitter banned the forwarding of stories that potentially implicate Joe Biden due to his son’s foreign business relationships weeks ahead of the 2020 election, falsely alleging that the articles broke an anti “hacked materials” rule.

Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) informed former Twitter officials Yoel Roth, Vijaya Gadde, and James Baker that the hearing will investigate their conduct and requested they show up.

Should they not come of their own volition, the panel can vote to force their appearance.
