Rep. Matt Gaetz announced tonight on Tucker Carlson’s show that he’s filling an FEC complaint against Twitter for interfering in the 2020 election against President Trump:

Gaetz says the Trump campaign has lost the element of surprise that they had in 2016, when no one though they could win the rust belt. So he believes they have to be aggressive to keep big tech from stealing the election.
Gaetz added that the FEC needs to “get off their duff” and investigate Twitter for interfering in the election, which is why he’ll file such a complaint tomorrow.
In very much related news Trump just tweeted what Facebook’s Zuckerberg said in his interview with Dana Perino. He then asked why Twitter didn’t ‘fact check’ Obama for lying that people would be able to keep their doctor with Obamacare:
.@Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is today criticizing Twitter. “We have a different policy than Twitter on this. I believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online.” Did Twitter criticize Obama for his “you can keep your Dr.”?
