Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan serves as Chairman of the House Select Committee on the Weaponization of the Government.
This Committee is conducting the vital work of unraveling Joe Biden’s scheme to manipulate the levers of power to target Donald Trump and his supporters for harassment, intimidation, and prosecution.
But Jim Jordan is preparing to drop the hammer on this major Joe Biden ally.
The Committee on the Weaponization of the Government is focusing in on the Biden administration colluding with Big Tech to censor Americans who opposed his COVID vaccine mandates and other restrictions.
Then-Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted in 2021 that the administration kept an enemies list of accounts that spread so-called “misinformation” on social media.
Joe Biden even falsely claimed Facebook was killing people by allowing Americans to speak freely and oppose his vaccine policies.
But Facebook stonewalled the Congressional investigation into government-mandated censorship on social media.
And now the Committee is threatening to vote on holding Mark Zuckerberg in contempt of Congress over Facebook’s refusal to turn over documents.
“Meta and its Chief Executive Officer, Mark Zuckerberg have willfully refused to comply in full with a congressional subpoena directed to Mr. Zuckerberg stemming from an investigation conducted by the House Committee on the Judiciary and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government into the Executive Branch’s coordination with social media companies and other third parties to censor free speech on digital platforms. This censorship by proxy is a serious threat to fundamental American civil liberties. A federal court recently described this conduct as ‘arguably the most massive attack against free speech in United States history’ and concluded that ‘the United States Government seems to have assumed a role similar to an Orwellian ‘Ministry of Truth,’” the Committee wrote.
A federal judge already weighed in on a related case where the Attorneys General of Missouri and Louisiana sued the Biden administration over government-mandated censorship on social media.
The judge in the case ruled that the Biden administration pressuring social media companies to censor conservatives amounted to the biggest attack on the First Amendment in American history.
And the judge issued an injunction blocking administration officials from communicating with social media companies except under very narrow circumstances.
Facebook is clearly terrified over what full compliance with the Committee’s subpoena will reveal about how the tech giant complied with Joe Biden’s demands for censorship.
But that does not mean the company gets to defy a Congressional subpoena.
