House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) posted the entire text of an explosive New York Post story about Hunter and Joe Biden on his congressional website on Thursday, after Twitter censored a link to the House Judiciary GOP’s website where the story text was also posted.

The House Judiciary GOP account tweeted, along with a link to Jordan’s website: “Twitter censored our last link! So, we put the article on @Jim_Jordan‘s website. Nice try, @jack. But, we won’t stop. Click, share, and RT!”

By approximately Thursday 9:35 a.m. ET, clicking on the link to Jordan’s website did not trigger a warning from Twitter.

The move came after Twitter added a warning before allowing people to access the story text posted on the House Judiciary GOP’s website.

The warning said:

Warning: this link may be unsafe.

Ignore this warning and continue

Twitter also used the same warning for the Post‘s follow-up story on Thursday about Hunter Biden making a lucrative deal with a Chinese firm that benefitted his family.

Twitter also on Thursday began taking action against accounts for posting photos of Hunter Biden that were published by the Post.
