At least two of the tech titans who appeared before the House Antitrust Subcommittee back in July will return to Capitol Hill on Oct. 28, accompanied this time by Twitter's Jack Dorsey, as they sit for a hearing before the Senate Commerce Committee, to dig into what happened this week as Big Tech - Facebook, Twitter and Google - appeared to blatantly and aggressively work together to smother a story about Hunter Biden's seedy international business dealings which included incriminating emails and photos that the MSM has denounced as "hacked".

Though there's so far no evidence that the materials published by the NY Post were obtained by hackers, the tech companies continued with the practice for at least two days, until Jack Dorsey earlier apologized for the second time.

All three CEOs agreed to appear voluntarily.

Meanwhile, Sen. Josh Hawley has filed a complaint with the FCC, and is urging the Trump Administration to make a formal complaint against the companies.

After Twitter and Facebook first censored posts from the president earlier this year, he issued an executive order attacking their Section 230 liability shield from the 1996 Communications Decency Act.
