Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai said Thursday that his agency will move forward with President Donald Trump’s petition to clarify the meaning of a law that gives social media and tech companies legal protection for content posted by third parties.

The announcement came as Twitter and Facebook said they would take action to limit the reach or bar sharing of a New York Post article about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and purported emails that show his family’s ties to foreign officials.
