Graham: Senate Judiciary to vote on subpoena for Facebook CEO

Graham was campaigning in North Charleston, S.C. on Friday and announced to POLITICO that he would accept the proposal.

“Yeah, I think I will,” said Graham when asked about Hawley’s remarks.

A Facebook spokesman declined to comment.

Twitter received the harshest criticism for preventing users from posting links to the New York Post article on its platform. The company has since softened its stance and revised its policies to only remove hacked materials that are shared by hackers or their affiliates. Twitter also said Friday that it would no longer prevent users from posting the link because of concerns about the private information displayed in the article, as it is now widely used on other platforms.

A Facebook spokesman confirmed Friday that the company’s processing of the report remains unchanged.

“What we have to do is we finally have an accounting that is long overdue,” said Graham Thursday after announcing the subpoena for Dorsey.

The CEOs of Twitter, Facebook and Google are due to testify separately to the Senate Trade Committee on October 28th about a hearing on an important set of legal liability protection provisions for Internet companies. The tech moguls agreed to testify after that panel voted to approve subpoenas for all three executives.
