House Weighs Vote to Hold Zuckerberg in Contempt

Jul 25, 2023 | Political News

Amid reported Meta refusals to comply with congressional oversight of Big Tech censorship, the House Judiciary Committee is reportedly weighing a potential Thursday vote on a contempt of Congress referral on Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to the Justice Department.

Myriad government agencies have been exposed by the Twitter Files to have conspired with allies at Big Tech social media companies to throttle down, censor, and even suspend accounts sharing opinions the Biden administration disagrees with.

A vote in the committee chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, would send the vote to the full House, but a Biden DOJ is unlikely to act on any recommendation to hold Democrat ally Zuckerberg in contempt of Congress, Punchbowl News reported Monday.
