Dorsey infamously claimed, falsely, that Twitter does not "shadow ban" conservatives and independent voices, and that all users are treated the same. We now know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this was a lie.
Since Dorsey was under oath at the time of this claim, he is guilty of committing perjury, which carries with it serious consequences. (Related: Dorsey is also accused of covering up Twitter's child pornography problem.)
A formal investigation, announced Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), could soon be launched into Dorsey's crimes. If that happens, Dorsey could be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
"The Twitter Files reveal that former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey may have committed perjury," Biggs tweeted. "He told Congress under oath that Twitter was not shadow-banning conservatives. Twitter was. He should be investigated by @JudiciaryGOP and @GOPoversight."
The Twitter Files, of course, are document dumps that new Twitter head Elon Musk is releasing to indict Dorsey and other former leadership of the corrupt social media platform.
Some of these files contain internal conversations among Twitter staff that reveal how certain accounts were tagged and targeted for unfair treatment. Some of them were banned while others were simply made less visible, which is what "shadow-banning" means.
Twitter executives have repeatedly claimed that such practices are not happening, but ever since Musk took over, proof that they are, in fact, happening has been flowing straight to the media.
In 2018 when Dorsey was asked if social media "is being rigged to censor conservatives," he answered with a simple "no" – watch the video below:
"Social media is being rigged to censor conservatives, is that true of Twitter?"

Another revelation in the Twitter Files is the fact that Dorsey was largely absent from his role as CEO while at Twitter. As some suspected was the case, he may have just been a figure head or patsy, of sorts, who functioned as the "face" of the company.
There is a possibility, in other words, that Dorsey was largely unaware of all that was really happening at Twitter. He might have known a few things, but was he really involved with the day-to-day activities of the company's far-left employees?
Biggs wants to see all of this addressed and answered as part of a House Judiciary Committee and GOP Oversight Committee investigation into the matter.
"I don't know what happened in the past year," Dorsey tweeted on December 9. "But to say we didn't take action for years isn't true," he added, referring specifically to the child porn allegations.
"You can make all my emails public to verify," he further wrote to Musk. "Company took away my access to email or I would."
Once Republicans take over the House next term, there is a chance that at least some of this will be addressed and looked into further. Time will tell.
"What about Zuckerberg at Facebook, and Ryan Roslansky at LinkedIn?" asked a commenter about other social media heads who are suspected of similar wrongdoing. "Why stop at Jack Dorsey?"
"He's another one they've obviously groomed and recruited from infancy, from his family history in service to them, for the position they used him in," wrote another about who Dorsey might really be, which is just a patsy from a rich family.
