One of the Federal Election Commission members who rejected a claim that Twitter violated campaign finance laws by censoring The Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop said that the social media giant may have been biased in favor of then-candidate Joe Biden but did not break the law.
Republican commissioner Sean Cooksey issued a three-page justification of his vote to reject the complaint by the Republican National Committee, saying that he thought Twitter may have had political motives in censoring the articles, but that it did not rise to the level of an in-kind contribution to Biden’s presidential campaign against incumbent President Donald Trump.
Cooksey expressed his doubt that Twitter was neutral in its coverage and simply following standard company practices.
"The Commission’s approved Factual and Legal Analysis concludes that Twitter was simply enforcing preexisting, commercially reasonable policies to protect its product quality and business interests. According to the Commission, none of the behavior at issue was for the purpose of influencing the 2020 presidential election.
