Jim Jordan Issues Subpoenas to Big Tech Execs For Info on Alleged Collusion With Government to Censor Speech

The House Judiciary Committee, led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), has sent subpoenas to five prominent U.S. Big Tech executives, demanding information on their censorship practices.

“Today, House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) subpoenaed the chief executive officers of Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Meta, and Microsoft for documents and communications relating to the federal government’s reported collusion with Big Tech to suppress free speech,” the committee announced in a statement Wednesday.

House Republicans are reportedly looking into allegations that Biden regime colluded with big technology and social-media companies to censor legitimate views on issues such as Covid-19 policy that countered the Biden White House’s propaganda.

“The House Judiciary Committee has repeatedly attempted to engage with the five companies since last December. Unfortunately, the companies have not adequately complied with our requests,” the statement reads.

Specifically, the committee asked Sundar Pichai, Andy Jassy, Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg, and Satya Nadella to “turn over all requested documents and communications by March 23, 2023.”

The committee didn’t demand information from Twitter Inc., which has been voluntarily transparent and less hostile to conservative speech since it was purchased by billionaire Elon Musk last year.

In the statement, Jordan stressed the importance of, “protecting and advancing fundamental free speech principles,” and “examining how private actors coordinate with the government to suppress First Amendment-protected speech.”

These subpoenas are the first step in holding Big Tech accountable,” Jordan said.
