Jordan demands records and communications between FBI and big tech

by | Apr 9, 2024

House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan sent letters on Tuesday to five social media companies, the justice department, and the FBI, requesting documents and records concerning any recent interactions between the Executive Branch and social media companies.

Copies of the letters were initially obtained by The Daily Caller, addressed to the Chief Executive Officers of Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Meta, and Microsoft, as well as to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Chris Wray, demanding documentation of such interactions.

Jordan emphasized that the communications and documentation regarding Meta's ongoing interactions with the FBI fall within the scope of a subpoena issued on February 15, 2023. He noted that the subpoena is “continuing in nature,” meaning that all documents and communications related to the FBI's recent outreach to Meta and FITF meetings are responsive to the Committee's subpoena. Jordan explained that these documents are pertinent as they pertain to how the FBI communicates with Meta regarding content moderation.

In the letter addressed to Zuckerberg, Jordan requested the following documents from Meta, “no later than two weeks after each meeting between Meta and the FBI occurs.”:

-All records, notes, and other documents pertaining to interactions between or among Meta and the Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF) or the FBI’s San Francisco Field Office.

-All communications and documents exchanged between or among Meta and the FBI concerning information sharing related to alleged foreign influence or election integrity.

-All internal communications and documents related to information sharing with the FBI concerning alleged foreign influence or election integrity.
