Pai’s latest statement comes as President Trump and other Republicans have issued renewed calls for Section 230 to be revoked after Twitter and Facebook moved to stop a New York Post story that claimed to incriminate Joe Biden. Section 230, considered by many to be the internet’s most important law, is a provision of the Communications Decency Act, which protects social media companies from being legally liable for what their users say and do on their platforms.
