Twitter’s co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey is facing possible perjury charges after new evidence has emerged that suggests he lied about the company “shadow-banning” conservatives while testifying before Congress.
Dorsey’s congressional testimony has been called into question after Twitter’s new owner and CEO Elon Musk started exposing the old management’s practices.
Musk has been releasing the “Twitter Files” in several installments which reveal how the company had been colluding with Democrats to censor Americans.
The bombshell files finally prove that Twitter has “secret blacklists” and “shadow-banned” users.
The company’s left-wing executives used these tools to heavy-handed target conservative users.
On Saturday, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) called for an investigation into Dorsey for possible perjury.
Dorsey had told Congress under oath, that Twitter was not shadow-banning conservatives.
In a post on Twitter, the congressman called for an investigation into Dorsey:
“The Twitter Files reveal that former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey may have committed perjury.
“He told Congress under oath that Twitter was not shadow-banning conservatives. Twitter was.
The Twitter Files reveal that former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey may have committed perjury.
He told Congress under oath that Twitter was not shadow-banning conservatives.

While testifying before Congress in 2018 Dorsey was asked, “Social media is being rigged to censor conservatives, is that true of Twitter?”
Dorsey answered, “No.”

The information released in the “Twitter Files” appears to directly conflict with Dorsey’s testimony, indicating that he may have been lying to congress, perjuring himself.
However, there is also speculation that Dorsey was so absent from his role as CEO that he didn’t know what his executives were doing.
Nevertheless, it was the chief executive’s responsibility to know.
Biggs is calling on the House Judiciary Committee as well as the GOP Oversight Committee to take a deeper dive into what the revelations from the “Twitter Files” are exposing.
Dorsey seems to also be surprised by a story by the New York Post regarding a lawsuit against Twitter.
The lawsuit alleges that Twitter failed to take action on child porn as it didn’t violate policies.
Dorsey has asked Musk to make all of his emails public to show that it isn’t true.
I don’t know what happened in past year. But to say we didn’t take action for years isn’t true. You can make all my emails public to verify. Company took away my access to email or I would.

Musk has promised that more bombshell installments of the “Twitter Files” will soon be released.
As Slay News reported Sunday, Musk suggested that coming revelations will provide evidence to “prosecute” Dr. Anhtony Fauci.
