Jim Jordan Finds Smoking Gun: ‘These Documents Prove Biden Admin Abused Its Powers’

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) has warned Democrat President Joe Biden that he now has a smoking gun that proves his administration “abused its powers.”

In a thread on Twitter, Jordan revealed that he now has the “Facebook Files” which were handed over the Congress by the social media platform’s parent company Meta.

Jordan says the files prove that social media companies censored American citizens in response to pressure from the Biden admin.

The documents now provide evidence that Biden and his administration officials violated the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution by stripping the American people of their free speech rights by proxy.

Jordan said:

“Never-before-released internal documents subpoenaed by the Judiciary Committee PROVE that Facebook and Instagram censored posts and changed their content moderation policies because of unconstitutional pressure from the Biden White House.

“During the first half of 2021, social media companies like Facebook faced tremendous pressure from the Biden White House—both publicly and privately—to crack down on alleged ‘misinformation.’

“In April 2021, a Facebook employee circulated an email for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg, writing: ‘We are facing continued pressure from external stakeholders, including the [Biden] White House’ to remove posts.”

“In another April 2021 email, Nick Clegg, Facebook’s president for global affairs, informed his team at Facebook that Andy Slavitt, a Senior Advisor to President Biden, was ‘outraged . . . that [Facebook] did not remove’ a particular post,” Jordan continues.

“What did the Biden White House want removed? A meme.

“That’s right, even memes weren’t spared from the Biden White House’s censorship efforts.

“When Clegg ‘countered that removing content like that would represent a significant incursion into traditional boundaries of free expression in the US,’ Slavitt disregarded the warning and the First Amendment.

“What happened next? Facebook panicked.

“In another April 2021 email, Brian Rice, Facebook’s VP of public policy, raised the concern that Slavitt’s challenge felt ‘very much like a crossroads for us with the [Biden] White House in these early days.’”

“But Facebook wanted to repair its relationship with the White House to avoid adverse action,” Jordan continues.

“‘Given what is at stake here, it would also be a good idea if we could regroup and take stock of where we are in our relations with the [White House], and our internal methods too.’

“This wasn’t the first time that the Biden White House was angry that Facebook didn’t censor more.

“According to these documents, the Biden White House demanded to know why Facebook had not censored a video from Tucker Carlson

”So, Facebook prepped its response.

“To appease the Biden White House, talking points were drafted for Clegg.

“Facebook was ready to tell the White House that it had demoted a video posted by Tucker Carlson by 50% in response to the White House’s demands, even though the post didn’t violate any policies.

“Public pressure mounted as well.

“In July 2021, President Biden publicly denounced Facebook and other social media platforms, claiming they were “killing people” by not censoring alleged ‘misinformation.’

“On August 2, 2021, Facebook admitted it was going to change its policies because of pressure from the Biden White House.

“August 2, 2021: ‘[Facebook’s] Leadership asked Misinfo Policy . . . to brainstorm some additional policy levers we can pull to be more aggressive against . . . misinformation. This is stemming from the continued criticism of our approach from the [Biden] administration.’

“These documents, AND OTHERS that were just produced to the Committee, prove that the Biden Admin abused its powers to coerce Facebook into censoring Americans, preventing free and open discourse on issues of critical public importance.”

The Twitter Files showed similar coercion by the Biden administration.

Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk should put down the boxing gloves and sue the heck out of the Biden administration.
