House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan is strongly considering holding Mark Zuckerberg in contempt of Congress for his refusal to comply with a subpoena issued earlier this year.
Fox Business reported that the Ohio Republican could move to hold the Meta CEO in contempt as early as next week.
A Meta spokesperson addressed the situation, responding to FOX Business with “We have shared over 50,000 pages of documents in response to the committee’s request and have made nearly a dozen current and former employees available to discuss external and internal issues. We look forward to continuing to work with the committee moving forward.”
However, none of those documents include any of the specified internal communications Jordan has requested from the company.
This is yet another instance where big tech companies are infringing on our constitutional rights by censoring information which does not align with their political objectives.
Unfortunately, this is becoming more common and it is up to us as conservatives to stand up against these violations of our basic freedoms.
It is crucial that we ensure Congress holds executives like Mark Zuckerberg accountable when they refuse legal requests from lawmakers who are trying to protect Americans from censorship and other forms of suppression.
Tania Joy Gibson, host of the Spreely TV show “Beauty for Ashes” stated: “Chairman Jordan must not back down but rather take decisive action against Mark Zuckerberg so that he can no longer get away without complying with subpoenas issued by both Congress and law enforcement agencies across America.”
“This will show big tech companies that they cannot violate our laws or infringe on our civil liberties without consequence – something every American should be able to agree upon regardless of their political leanings or affiliations,” Gibson added.
