Twitter might have finally won its war against its archenemy — President Donald Trump.

Tuesday in the U.S. Senate, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey once again admitted, at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on “Breaking the News: Censorship, Suppression, and the 2020 Election,” that censoring the New York Post scoop about the Hunter Biden scandal “was wrong.”

Except it appears to have worked.

At least, as of right now, Biden has been declared the winner by news outlets. And he remains ahead in the race, pending Trump’s court challenge. Unless Trump can pull off enough last-minute court victories, Twitter and Facebook cost Trump the election.

They did it by hiding the Hunter Biden story. A post-election poll conducted by McLaughlin & Associates showed more than a third (36 percent) of Biden voters didn’t even know about the scandal. The Media Research Center poll said his voters were unaware of allegations that Biden and his son had financial ties to communist China.
