House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan is running one of the probes examining the growing allegations of corruption surrounding Joe Biden.
Jordan’s probe could very well result in an impeachment inquiry.
And now Jim Jordan produced a smoking gun that proved Joe Biden broke the law.
Meta relented and turned over documents to the Judiciary Committee after Chairman Jordan threatened to hold founder Mark Zuckerberg in contempt of Congress.
Zuckerberg relented and the company forked over documents relating to the Biden administration pressuring Facebook to illegally censor conservative critics of the Biden administration’s COVID vaccine mandates and other restrictions.
Jordan made the emails Meta turned over public and they were as devastating as everyone thought.
In one email, a Facebook employee recounted how Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg felt immense pressure from the Biden administration to censor the president’s political opposition.
“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,” Jordan posted on social media.
Jordan recounted how Biden COVID advisor Andy Slavitt sloughed off concerns that pressuring Facebook to take down posts would violate the spirit of the First Amendment.
Chairman Jordan said that Slavitt – a lockdown and mask mandate zealot – did not care and demanded Facebook censor Joe Biden’s critics.
“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 added.
“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,” Jordan continued.
Facebook eventually drafted talking points for Clegg to show Slavitt and Biden that they were obeying censorship requests by cutting down the reach of a Tucker Carlson video by 50 percent even though the post did not violate any rules.
To appease the Biden White House, talking points were drafted for Clegg.

Finally, Facebook capitulated and adopted the authoritarian and repressive censorship regime the Biden administration demanded.
“On August 2, 2021, Facebook admitted it was going to change its policies because of pressure from the Biden White House,” Jordan said. “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,’” Jordan stated.
The government cannot pressure private companies to censor speech to get around the First Amendment.
The Supreme Court established case law on this matter.
And in an unrelated case, a federal judge in Missouri slapped the administration with a restraining order blocking administration officials from meeting with Big Tech executives to lobby for removing content except in very narrowly defined circumstances.
The judge called the Biden administration twisting the screws on Big Tech to censor conservatives the worst assault on free speech in the nation’s history.
Republicans may very well impeach Joe Biden on charges of weaponizing the justice system to protect Hunter Biden and attack Donald Trump as well as allegedly taking a $5 million bribe from the founder of Burisma while serving as vice president.
But Republicans may also add in an article of impeachment for Joe Biden illegally pressuring Big Tech to censor conservative speech online.
