Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Republican Leader Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Communications and Technology Subcommittee Republican Leader Bob Latta (R-OH), and Consumer Protection and Commerce Subcommittee Republican Leader Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) asked Big Tech companies how they will handle the Biden administration’s latest efforts to censor Americans using the newly established Disinformation Governance Board.
Excerpts and highlights from exclusive Breitbart coverag of the letter:
“Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) is leading an inquiry into whether President Joe Biden’s ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ is pressuring big tech companies to increase their surveillance and censorship of conservative users, according to a letter exclusively obtained by Breitbart News.
“In a letter sent to the CEOs of Meta (Facebook), LinkedIn, TikTok, Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat, and Reddit, McMorris Rodgers asks whether Biden’s “disinformation” board has requested information about the companies’ political speech policies and if they would comply with any requests to remove political speech.
“The House Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member suspects Biden will use the disinformation board to increase the targeting of conservatives online.
“’We fully expect this will mean DHS will seek information from your company about conservative users, since President Biden has essentially identified them as political enemies,’ she wrote.
“McMorris Rodgers called out the board’s director, Nina Jankowicz, for spreading disinformation herself, pointing toward her comments about Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover and her promotion of the infamous Steele dossier.”
