Biden’s Budget Chief Scrubs Twitter History Ahead Of Contentious Confirmation

The Democ­rats can’t wait to con­firm Joe Biden as pres­i­dent and begin hear­ings on his Cab­i­net picks, despite exten­sive evi­dence of elec­tion fraud. One of those chomp­ing at the bit to get con­firmed in his Cab­i­net are tak­ing a ‘bleach bit’ approach to ster­il­iz­ing their social media ahead of poten­tial hearings.

With Sen­ate Minor­i­ty Leader Chuck Schumer call­ing on Con­gress to begin hear­ings on Joe Biden’s Cab­i­net picks before the inau­gu­ra­tion while the results of the 2020 elec­tion remain in dis­pute, one nom­i­nee has already stoked con­tro­ver­sy for ped­dling con­spir­a­cy the­o­ries and par­ti­san attacks on Twit­ter — and is now delet­ing the evidence.

The Wash­ing­ton Exam­in­er reports:

Neera Tanden, Pres­i­dent-elect Joe Biden’s pick for bud­get direc­tor, has delet­ed over a thou­sand tweets in antic­i­pa­tion of a tough con­fir­ma­tion vote.

Many of Tanden’s delet­ed posts were crit­i­cal of Repub­li­can sen­a­tors, whose votes she will like­ly need for con­fir­ma­tion, as well as promi­nent con­ser­v­a­tives and journalists.

Tanden, who is the CEO of the Cen­ter for Amer­i­can Progress, a lib­er­al think tank, would need a major­i­ty vote in the Sen­ate to become the head of Biden’s Office of Man­age­ment and Bud­get, mean­ing that she is like­ly to need GOP support.

Tanden’s delet­ed tweets include, for exam­ple, mul­ti­ple posts express­ing dis­ap­proval of Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, a cen­trist Repub­li­can who has been known to vote with Democ­rats on some issues and is con­sid­ered a “swing” vote. Yet, she left up a 2018 tweet that calls Collins “pathet­ic” for sup­port­ing Supreme Court Jus­tice Brett Kavanaugh’s.
