That Twitter Data Dump.

 Let me see if I have the argument correctly.  An interwebnetubes content publisher (not a traditional journalism company, not that it matters,) "suppressed" a bonkers story, back when the story could not be verified.  And the people who wanted the unverified story spread far and wide, had a specific political goal in mind; to manipulate public opinion around an election.   

Same could be said for some of the people who did not want the story spread.

But only one side was trying to manipulate the news, and or info tainment cycles?  Not both?  And not only ignoring the fact that a politician campaign is exactly that?  A manipulation of ideas, and minds, and public opinion?

And journalists have always had a thumb on that scale, anyway?  And by scale I mean public opinion.

And we are supposed to throw out the US Const. because one side's attempt to manipulate public opinion was not as far and wide, and or effective as they hoped?

Oh.  And despite all the hosts of horrors that political party repeated published during the last election cycle, in their attempt to manipulate opinion.  They, having newly won control of the House of Representatives, wants to investigate attempts to manipulate public opinion around elections?

Yeah.  That is not only bonkers.  It is childishly silly.
