House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) is zeroing in on Joe Biden and has just exposed more damning evidence against the Democrat president. Jordan just dropped the second installment of his “Facebook Files” which highlights the Biden admin’s effort to censor the American people.
As Slay News reported earlier, Jordan dropped the first part on Thursday and asserted that the documents prove Biden has “abused his powers.”
Facebook’s parent company Meta finally handed over documents to Congress that show how the social media giant was pressured to censor information by the Biden admin.
According to the latest drop from Jordan, Biden officials even demanded that Facebook censor jokes and true information posted online by American citizens.
As many have already pointed out, the effort by the Biden White House to stip the taxpaying public of their free speech rights is a violation of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Jordan detailed the “Facebook Files Part Two” in a lengthy thread on Twitter:
“Newly subpoenaed documents reveal Facebook bowed to the Biden White House’s pressure to remove posts.
“In summer of 2021, the White House was mounting a nationwide push for Americans to get vaccinated for Covid-19.
“Part of that push included a public and SECRET campaign to get Facebook to more aggressively police vaccine-related content, including TRUE information.
“This wasn’t the Biden Admin’s first pressure campaign.

“In July 2021, FB’s head of Global Affairs asked why FB had been censoring the COVID lab leak theory.
“The answer was clear: ‘Because we were under pressure from the administration . . . We shouldn’t have done it.’
“Biden Administration officials claimed that many Americans were hesitant to get vaccines because of content—including true information—that they saw on Facebook.
“’They’re killing people,’ President Biden said in July.
“Facebook employees initially bristled at President Biden’s accusation,” Jordan revealed.
“BUT the tongue-lashing directly caused Facebook to re-evaluate its policies about COVID-19 content—discussions that involved high-level company officials including Clegg and then-Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg.
“What did the White House want removed?
“Humorous posts about the vaccine.
“Seriously, jokes were too much!
“The Biden administration also wanted Facebook to remove TRUE information as well.
“As Clegg prepared to meet Biden’s Surgeon General, he emailed colleagues: ‘Sheryl is keen that we continue to explore some moves that we can make to show that we are trying to be responsive to the WH.’
“Facebook even considered ‘blackholing’ certain [website] domains.
“Clegg continued: ‘My sense is that our current course—in effect explaining ourselves more fully, but not shifting on where we draw the lines…is a recipe for protracted and increasing acrimony with the [White House].’
“Facebook’s leadership relented in August and agreed to change the company’s content moderation policies because of the Biden Admin’s continued pressure.
“These subpoenaed documents continue to reveal the Biden administration’s efforts to censor speech.”
