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.
