Must-See: Jim Jordan Exposes Biden Admin’s Harassment of Elon Musk

(SNews) – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) has exposed an effort by Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration to use taxpayer-funded federal agencies to harass Elon Musk to pressure him to suppress free speech on Twitter.

Jordan caught the Biden admin with its hands in the cookie jar when he grilled Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chair Lina Khan today.

Khan was called to testify before the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, which Jordan also chairs.

Jordan accused Khan and the FTC of harassing Musk to force him to comply with the Biden admin’s censorship agenda on Twitter.

Khan admitted to the subcommittee that Biden’s FTC sought to “punish” Musk for advocating free speech on Twitter.


Jordan said: “We knew they were harassing @elonmusk, but it was worse than we thought.

“The FTC communicated to Ernst & Young, the independent assessor, the fact finder that the FTC selected, quote, ‘Ernst & Young’ feared that the FTC would take exception if they chose to withdraw from the case.’”

“So on the one hand your harassing Twitter and then you are saying the guy we selected to be the fact finder, you better find what we want and if you try to get out of it, we’re going to retaliate against you.

“That is frightening,” Jordan declared.

“When we talk about the weaponization of government, this is from the same agency that said tell us all the journalists you are talking to.

“That’s what we’re concerned about, Miss Khan.

“That’s what has to change.

“You can comment if you want but I‘m reading from the motion filed today in court.

“Why’s Joe Biden’s FTC afraid of free speech?”

The House Judiciary Committee said: “Joe Biden’s FTC wanted Ernst & Young to punish @elonmusk’s Twitter.

“If they didn’t, Ernst & Young feared they would be retaliated against by the government.

As Slay News reported earlier, Elon Musk responded by accusing the Biden admin of “insanely illegal overreach.”

“FTC overreach has gone absurdly far beyond the legal mandate granted by Congress,” Musk said.

“Weaponization of government agencies for censorship & political machinations needs to stop.

“This platform is unique in no longer rubber-stamping FISA queries.

“They must be soundly justified.”
