Facebook announced Friday that it will end former President Trump’s suspension on January 7, 2023, two years after his account was taken away. In addition, they announced that two years will be the maximum punishment for those public figures guilty of inciting mobs during times of civil unrest.

Trump’s Facebook account was suspended following the riots on Jan 6 At first, the social media’s Oversight Board upheld Trump’s suspension. However, they criticized its duration. The board asked that leadership, including Vice President Nick Clegg, review Trump’s suspension.

As a result, Clegg said they would change the nature of the ban. The board gave Facebook six-month-deadline to come to a decision. Facebook came to its decision after a month. Now, the Oversight Board will review the response again, and determine if it is proportional.

Now, public figures face suspension between one month and two years for violating Facebook’s policies during times of “ongoing violence” and “civil unrest.” And, should Trump violate the rules again after this suspension ends, he could still be up for permanent removal.

Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
