Wild Senate Week Ahead Over Twitter And COVID Stimulus

Wild Senate Week Ahead Over Twitter And COVID Stimulus

(RepublicanDaily.org) – We’re set to see a lot of action in the Senate the week of October 19. Members plan to vote on a subpoena to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in relation to the platform’s apparent censorship of negative content about Joe Biden’s family. Additionally, the legislative body will vote on a coronavirus relief package worth about $500 billion.

On Wednesday, October 14, the New York Post published a story discussing evidence that Joe Biden had met with a Ukrainian energy executive while he was vice president. The piece had the potential to be politically damaging as he has consistently claimed not to have any inappropriate links with Ukrainian corporate interests

However, Facebook and Twitter blocked links to the story, leading many commentators to accuse them of censorship. Senate Republicans want to get to the bottom of this by compelling Jack Dorsey to answer their questions.

A second COVID-19 relief package has been up for debate for several weeks now. The proposition currently on the table got approval from nearly all Republicans, but Democrats chose to filibuster it. Most analysts believe this package is not comprehensive enough for the Left and that we’re unlikely to see a finalized deal before the election.

The weeks leading up to major elections always feature lots of important news stories. That said, it’s difficult to think of a time when there was more happening in the world of politics than there is right now.
