Executives at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram donated tens of thousands of dollars to President-elect Joe Biden’s campaign, Fox News reports.

Moreover, critics of the tech giants, say their actions during the 2020 general election and actions targeting conservatives on social media raise serious concerns about censorship in America.

The donations are just the tip of the iceberg. Federal Election Commission records reveal that top executives at the big tech companies made several large donations to the Biden campaign, while there was no record of them donating to the Trump campaign.

The legal maximum amount to donate is $2,800. Numerous executives donated the maximum amount to the Biden campaign, including Facebook vice president of public policy, Erin Egan, Facebook chief revenue officer David Fischer, Facebook’s chief financial officer, David Wehner, Facebook vice presidents Gene Alston, Michael Verdu, Shahriar Rabii and T.S. Khurana and Instagram’s chief operating officer, Marne Levine.

A number of of Facebook and Twitter employees also donated the maximum amount.

The social media giants have been under fire recently for accusations of censorship. Earlier this week, Twitter prevented users from sharing tweets by President Donald Trump. Trump has also accused the tech companies of suppressing the circulation of news stories that expose the alleged Hunter Biden scandals.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a conservative government watchdog group noted that Google and YouTube “under false and non-sensical pretenses, double down on election intervention and political censorship against @RealDonaldTrump to help Joe Biden – the after President Trump officially threatens to veto over section 230 reform.”

GOP members of the House Oversight Committee are demanding a hearing to investigate Twitter and Facebook’s “unjustifiable censorship” of the New York Post’s reporting on Biden’s foreign business dealings.

“Reporting indicates this investigation is related to his overseas business dealings,” the GOP members wrote in a new letter obtained by Fox News. “In light of Hunter Biden’s admission that he is under investigation, especially after Big Tech’s unjustifiable censorship of the New York Post’s report, we are renewing our hearing request.”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
