Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement calling for an investigation of social media censorship following the suppression of the House Judiciary Committee Republican Twitter account:

“The suppression of an official House of Representatives social media account for sharing a news story constitutes an alarming and shocking act of censorship. Millions of Americans use social media. How can they expect to be treated fairly when their elected representatives are silenced in such an arbitrary and heavy-handed manner?

“As a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, I believe this issue deserves our intense scrutiny. I call on the subcommittee to launch an investigation of social media giants such as Twitter immediately.”
