Mark Zuckerberg is probably wishing he didn’t go on Joe Rogan’s podcast last week and reveal that Facebook algorithmically censored the Hunter Biden laptop story for 7 days back in 2020.

GOP Senators issued a letter to Facebook demanding that the social media company turn over its communications with the FBI regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) wrote to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, “The American people deserve to know whether the FBI used Facebook as part of their alleged plan to discredit information about Hunter Biden.”
In the letter, the senators requested all records between and among Facebook, the FBI, the DOJ, and government agency employees that referred to Hunter Biden, including but not limited to Russian disinformation, the Hunter Biden laptop, and the senators’ investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
They additionally asked for the names of the DOJ, FBI, and Facebook officials who communicated “regarding Russian disinformation during the 2020 election” as well as those officials who made contact “during the 2020 election,” and “the dates of when Facebook decreased the distribution of articles relating to Hunter Biden’s laptop.”
According to the Daily Wire, Facebook has not yet responded to the letter or any requests for comment.
This all comes after last week, in which we reported that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Joe Rogan that Facebook algorithmically censored the Hunter Biden laptop story for 7 days based on a general request from the FBI to restrict election misinformation.
The FBI responded last Friday once Zuckerberg’s admission made airwaves, saying in a statement, “The FBI routinely notifies U.S. private sector entities, including social media providers, of potential threat information, so that they can decide how to better defend against threats” The FBI added that it “cannot ask, or direct, companies to take action on information received.”
Zuckerberg’s admission is very alarming and its good that the GOP are jumping on this right away. This collusion between the FBI and Facebook could have an even bigger aftershock than what the Democrats are expecting.
