James Comer (R-Ky), the incoming chairman of the House Oversight Committee told the New York Post that “I have reached out to Elon Musk through backchannels to tell him that we would love for him to come before the committee. I’m pretty confident he’s going to provide more information, but he is welcome to come before our committee. We will roll out the red carpet for Elon Musk.”

“He’s doing a great service to the Oversight Committee and America by disclosing all of the emails and correspondence between the Biden campaign and the Democratic National Committee and Twitter,” Comer added.

According to the New York Post, in a letter to the Tesla CEO, Comer wrote “Republicans on the Committee . . . urge you to reverse the pattern of censoring certain news and views. This includes ending the practice employed by Twitter’s previous leadership of prioritizing its own worldview over freedom of speech and information,” while asking him to preserve the relevant documents that exposed many hidden truths.

The 'Twitter Files' with almost 36 threads of tweets in the initial phase was released on December 3 by journalist Matt Taibbi who was given access to the sensitive information by Musk. Taibbi released the entire story of the internal emails shared at the Twitter company on its discussion on the removal of tweets about Hunter Biden's laptop that contained unverified information on his business deals in Ukraine as well as the campaign teams of both Joe Biden and Donald Trump trying to get tweets removed.

On behalf of the Oversight Committee, the incoming chairman had sent formal letters to three others to testify including the top leaders of the Pre-Elon Musk Twitter including former lawyer Vijaya Gadde and ex-Global Global Head of Trust & Safety, Yoel Roth who were part of the censorship and general counsel Jim Baker who was recently fired following the Twitter Files release.

However, the three former leaders at Twitter would receive a frostier reception and if needed, they may receive a subpoena to testify, reports the New York Post.
