The article included an email from Biden's son, Hunter, related to his overseas business, which has often been the subject of political attacks on Joe Biden.

Musk shared a series of tweets from a journalist. These showed, among other things, several screenshots of internal communication, according to which was controversial on the blocking of the article on Twitter. Musk wrote that the story was deliberately withheld.

Twitter blocked the newspaper's article and account at the time because the report allegedly violated rules prohibiting the dissemination of information obtained through illegal hacks.
