Republican Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) has taken action against the alleged collusion between Big Tech and the Biden administration in censoring opposing views. As the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jordan sent subpoenas to the heads of three federal agencies, including Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Jen Easterly, head of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency; and James Rubin, coordinator of the Global Engagement Center, a State Department-housed interagency.

In recent times, Republicans have been accelerating efforts to investigate how the Biden administration and social media companies have collaborated regarding online content moderation. The subpoenas serve as a demand for the agencies to produce records that show the extent to which they coerced, pressured, worked with, or relied on social media and other tech companies to censor speech.

Jordan’s effort comes amid increasing concerns from the Republican party about the alleged censorship of conservative views on social media platforms. Republicans argue that social media companies have become too powerful and influential in controlling online conversations, and they are pressuring the Biden administration to intervene.

The subpoenas will play a significant role in determining the extent to which the government and Big Tech companies have worked together to regulate online content. It remains to be seen how the agencies will respond to the subpoenas and what impact they will have on the ongoing debate about online censorship.
