If the emails attributed to Hunter Biden are proven authentic, they'll show "what was known all along" about him and "really Joe Biden's entire family" trading on the former vice president and senator's public office for decades, Sen. Tom Cotton said Friday. 

"The Biden family is beginning to rival the Clinton family with the money they make off one politician's office," the Arkansas Republican said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends."  

Reports about Hunter Biden being on the board of the Ukraine energy company Burisma has been long known, but even more members of Biden's family have been pulling in money on his name, said Cotton.

"We learned this week the son-in-law (was) advising his campaign on the coronavirus response, while he is also investing in numerous healthcare companies, which is obviously a highly regulated industry," said Cotton. "James Biden, his brother, has long been accused of trading on Joe Biden's public office and his sister has built a lucrative campaign consulting business tenure."

Meanwhile, Cotton slammed Twitter and Facebook for banning anyone trying to post the New York Post's articles about emails found on a laptop reportedly belong to Hunter Biden, and said he's glad Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is being subpoenaed to come to Capitol Hill. 

Censorship of Republican voices has been going on for years, but with the ban, "they declared open war on Republicans and conservatives across America," said Cotton. 

The senator also called for stripping away immunity that Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act provides social media sites, whether it's the FCC that stops the rule or Congress. 

"When (Facebook CEO) Mark Zuckerberg testified in front of Congress last year, he said that Silicon Valley is an extremely liberal place," said Cotton. "I think everyone knows that. But I think it's been exposed even more this week when Twitter and Facebook began to block content from one of the largest circulated papers in America ... this kind of censorship cannot be tolerated."
