A Senate committee wants to subpoena the tech CEOs over that New York Post story

The Senate Judiciary Committee is gearing up to subpoena Facebook and Twitter over their handling of the controversial New York Post story about Hunter Biden.

Republican Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, as well as Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, said the committee could proceed as soon as Tuesday to vote on the subpoena.

"These social media platforms have a dominance in our lives," Graham said during a brief press conference on Capitol Hill. "This, to me, crystallizes the problem better than anything I could think of for the American people. We're going to proceed Tuesday. Hopefully the Democrats on the committee will be as interested in this as we are."

Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey are already set to testify before another Senate committee, the Senate Commerce Committee, later this month.
