While Twitter was quick to censor a bombshell Hunter Biden New York Post report prior to the 2020 presidential election due to it supposedly violating the “hacked materials policy,” the social media giant has yet to take any action on the leaked ProPublica report Tuesday on confidential tax information.

Federal tax data illegally obtained by ProPublica and published on Tuesday shows tax data for billionaires such as Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. ProPublica found that the billionaires’ federal income taxes from 2014 to 2018 amounted to about 3.4 percent of their public net worth.

ProPublica has not said where it received the documents. White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Treasury Department spokeswoman Lily Adams indicated shortly after the report was published that the action was “illegal,” and the IRS, Treasury Department, and FBI will be performing an investigation.

“The matter is being referred to the Office of the Inspector General, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, all of whom have independent authority to investigate,” Adams said in a statement.

As of this writing, Twitter has not made any public comment on whether the report violates its hacked policy and has not blocked links to the report. A spokesman for the company did not immediately respond to The Federalist’s request for comment.

In the run-up to the 2020 presidential election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, Twitter censored all links to the New York Post’s story outlining several of the Biden son’s scandalous emails. Communications showed that Hunter set up a meeting between then-Vice President Joe Biden and a leading executive at a Ukrainian energy firm.

Twitter claimed after its decision to block link-sharing that not doing so
