Biden Hints at Targeting Musk over Twitter’s Longstanding Foreign Investors

'They believe they can use their influence inside Twitter to either repress speech that they don’t like or potentially track their enemies...'

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) President Joe Biden threatened on Wednesday to investigate Twitter’s ties to foreign investors—specifically members of Saudi Arabia’s royal family, Politico reported.

Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talal has owned stock in Twitter since 2011, but the concerns from Democrats came to the forefront only after the company’s recent acquisition by red-pilled ex-liberal Elon Musk, who vowed to relax the platform’s censorship restrictions.

Biden failed to confirm or deny if there was an active investigation against Musk.

However, the announcement followed similar threats from lawmakers and federal bureaucrats,  including a recent call for an investigation by Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn.

In a separate discussion of Musk’s Twitter, Murphy cast the situation as dire and imminent.

He warned the Treasury Department’s Committee on Foreign Investment that it should investigate the situation as a potential national security threat due to the possibility that the Saudis might have a “political agenda.”

“They believe they can use their influence inside Twitter to either repress speech that they don’t like or potentially track their enemies,” Murphy claimed.
