Sen. Cruz seeks federal Twitter probe as Trump feuds with company

By Arshad Mohammed

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Ted Cruz on Friday urged the Treasury and Justice Departments to investigate whether Twitter, which is embroiled in a feud with the White House, is violating U.S. law by letting top Iranian officials use the social media platform.

Cruz, a Republican ally of President Donald Trump, wrote a letter asking the Justice and Treasury Departments to open an investigation into Twitter Inc "for possible criminal violations" of U.S. sanctions against Iran.

Cruz said Twitter may have broken the law by letting Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweet despite their being blacklisted under Executive Order 13876, which bars providing goods or services to those targeted.

Twitter declined comment on Cruz's letter. The Treasury Department, Justice Department and Iranian mission to the U.N. did not immediately reply to requests for comment.

4. This would make Twitter rescind their policy

Of not blocking political leaders. Which means they could ban Trump.

5. Cruz

was called a sleeze by Trump. Trump insults Cruz's wife and says that Cruz's father was involved in the Kennedy assassination but yet this idiot still kisses the orange ass! What a man of integrity and honor.
