After the FBI admitted that there was “scant evidence” from the Jan 6 riot that was coordinated, now the Dems’ committee is now demanding more records.
After the riot happened in Capitol last Jan 6, things got bad to worse. From relentless arrests and detention by the police, foolish punishments for arrested persons who don’t want to get vaccinated, and then DC Police suing Donald Trump for the riot. That is crazy.
And now, after the FBI admitted that they have a piece of scant evidence for the incident, the Dems committee is now demanding 15 Social Media Companies to hand over their records and data about the riot.
The letter from The Select Committee investigating the Capitol riot sent letters dated Aug. 26 to Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube, and Reddit, along with Parler, TikTok, 4chan, and seven other social media platforms asking them to provide all documents, data, and other information related to the Capitol riot since April 2020.
The committee requested documents concerning “misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation relating to the 2020 election,” efforts to overturn the election, “domestic violent extremists,” and foreign influence. The committee also asked for internal documents and communications on how the social media companies’ algorithms may have contributed to the events at the Capitol.
“The Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol is examining the facts, circumstances, and causes of the attack and relating to the peaceful transfer of power, in order to identify and evaluate lessons learned and to recommend corrective laws, policies, procedures, rules, or regulations,” Rep. Bennie Thompson, the committee’s chair, said in a statement.
It was confirmed by the Daily Caller that the companies are 4Chan, 8kun, Facebook, Gab, Google, Parler, Reddit, Snapchat, Telegram, theDonald.win, and TikTok.
Twitter declined to comment when reached by the Daily Caller News Foundation. 4chan, TikTok, and Reddit did not immediately respond.
Some actions I think are just another propaganda against Donald Trump. Shame.
