Twitter CEO and owner Elon Musk revealed that a new batch of “Twitter Files” focusing on Dr. Anthony Fauci will be released later this week. Musk made the revelation in a Twitter response to Bill Clinton’s rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick.

Musk had initially posted a tweet on Sunday wishing people a good first day of the new year and saying, “One thing’s for sure, it won’t be boring.” Broaddrick then responded to Musk’s tweet, saying she was waiting for “Fauci Files,” with Musk telling her that the files would be released “later this week.”
Musk has also taken aim at Fauci in the past, with the billionaire claiming in one post that his pronouns are “Prosecute/Fauci.”

While the contents of the “Twitter Files” on Fauci remain uncertain, many hope the new batch of files could shed light on Fauci’s role in Twitter’s decision to secretly blacklist Stanford University professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya.
At the height of the pandemic, when schools were closed, Bhattacharya argued that the Covid lockdowns would harm children. A thread by independent reporter Bari Weiss revealed that Bhattacharya’s argument got him blacklisted on Twitter.
Previous segments have exposed how the social media company, under its previous leadership, has been censoring and shadowbanning conservatives.
The files also showed how Twitter censored and locked the New York Post out of its account after the media outlet refused to take down the Hunter Biden laptop story. The story revealed how the Bidens had been using then-Vice President Biden’s influence to strike foreign business deals and enrich the Biden family.
After the Post tweeted a link to the article, Twitter asked that the posts containing the links be taken down because they violated the social media company’s policy. Twitter falsely claimed, without evidence, that the story contained hacked materials.
Other bombshells included in past Twitter Files showed how the company had been working with federal law enforcement agencies to censor conservatives. The files also revealed how Twitter executives caved to pressure from the liberals to ban former President Donald Trump.
