Congressional investigation against Twitter’s board after nobbering of Musk

Published April 22, 2022 at 7:18 p.m.

On Friday, a group of 18 Republican members sent a letter to Twitter’s board members requesting that they preserve all documents and other material relating to Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s bid for the company.

The letter states that the investigation suspects that the board has turned down Elon Musk because of its opposition to freedom of expression rather than for business reasons.

“Congress is examining Big Tech and how best to ensure American citizens’ freedom of speech, which is why this letter is a formal request that you preserve all recordings and material related to Musk’s offer to buy Twitter, including Twitter’s considerations and responses to this offer, and Twitter’s evaluation of its shareholders in relation to Musk’s offer “was stated in the letter signed by Justice Committee Vice Chairman Jim Jordan and the committee’s Republican members.

“The Twitter board’s obligation is to manage the interests of shareholders. This obligation applies regardless of how many business leaders choose to pursue their own left-wing agendas that run counter to the interests of their owners,” the Justice Committee’s Republicans reminded in the letter.

All members of the US Congress have a set of powers to take investigative measures that individuals cannot use without a court decision. Members can, for example, force a party to preserve and submit evidence, such as documents and other documents, to Congress.
