House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is vowing to hold Big Tech and the FBI “accountable”, saying that the agency “colluded” to “silence news stories weeks before the 2020 election”.
His comment comes after Meto CEO and Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg, during a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, admitted to algorithmically suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story for 7 days in 2020 following FBI officials reportedly directing Zuckerberg to do so.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote on Twitter Thursday: “The FBI colluded with Big Tech to silence news stories weeks before the 2020 election in an attempt to control your access to information.”
“Democrats in Congress have been intentionally ignoring the facts. When Republicans are back in charge, we will hold all of them accountable,” he vowed.

During the 2020 election, Zuckerberg also donated roughly $400 million through two liberal-leaning 501(c)(3) organizations under the guise of supporting a safe election during the pandemic in 2020. What ended up happening amounted to an enormous Democrat voter turnout operation complete with mass mail-in voting, insecure drop boxes, recruiting poll workers and ballot curing — all courtesy of “Zuck bucks.”
The group that got the bulk of Mr. Zuckerberg’s money — the Center for Tech and Civic Life — sent some 2,500 grants to government elections offices in 48 states. Defenders of Mr. Zuckerberg contend that more grants went to Trump areas while conveniently ignoring the fact that the vast amount of money was targeted to critically important areas for Mr. Biden. In fact, approximately 160 of the 2,500 grants were for $400,000 or more and totaled a whopping $272 million — and 92% of the money flowed to jurisdictions that Mr. Biden carried, Washington Times reported.
