Twitter has reportedly suspended the Trump Campaign’s official Twitter account for a video referencing the bombshell New York Post report alleging Joe Biden’s son Hunter leveraged his father’s position as vice president in his foreign business dealings.

“Twitter has suspended @TeamTrump for posting a video calling Joe Biden a liar who has been ripping off our country for years, as it relates to the @nypost article. 19 days out from the election,” said the Campaign’s Mike Hahn on Twitter Thursday.

According to the Campaign, Twitter flagged the post for violating the platform’s “rules against posting private information.”

On Wednesday, shortly after the Post broke the story, Twitter and Facebook began censoring anyone who shared the article. Moreover, Twitter suspended many accounts sharing the story, including White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s personal Twitter.

The Post’s report included emails in which Hunter Biden allegedly connected people at Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings, where he was a board member, to his father when he was vice president.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
