House Republicans Could Hold Mark Zuckerberg in Contempt This Week

Capitol Report
Capitol Report
The GOP-led House Judiciary Committee is considering voting this week to hold Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg in contempt, according to a spokesman. Judiciary Republicans, including the panel's chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), have accused Meta of being uncooperative in regards to the panel's efforts to investigate potential censorship and collusion between Big Tech and the federal government. Meta owns Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, and now Threads. When asked about the possible contempt charges against Mr. Zuckerberg this week, a spokesperson for Mr. Jordan's office told The Epoch Times that Republicans are "considering it." Some reports indicated that it could happen by Thursday, July 27. “Meta has critical information that it has not turned over to the committee regarding federal government efforts to censor speech online and how Meta responded to those efforts,” Russell Dye, a spokesman for Mr. Jordan's office, said in a statement to The Epoch Times on Monday. "It is imperative the committee get these materials and we will take whatever actions necessary to facilitate that end." The Epoch Times has contacted Meta Platforms for comment.
