Executives at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram donated tens of thousands of dollars to President-elect Joe Biden’s campaign, Fox News reports.

Moreover, critics of the tech giants, say their actions during the 2020 general election and actions targeting conservatives on social media raise serious concerns about censorship in America.

The donations are just the tip of the iceberg. Federal Election Commission records reveal that top executives at the big tech companies made several large donations to the Biden campaign, while there was no record of them donating to the Trump campaign.

The legal maximum amount to donate is $2,800. Numerous executives donated the maximum amount to the Biden campaign, including Facebook vice president of public policy, Erin Egan, Facebook chief revenue officer David Fischer, Facebook’s chief financial officer, David Wehner, Facebook vice presidents Gene Alston, Michael Verdu, Shahriar Rabii and T.S. Khurana and Instagram’s chief operating officer, Marne Levine.

A number of of Facebook and Twitter employees also donated the maximum amount.

The social media giants have been under fire recently for accusations of censorship. Earlier this week, Twitter prevented users from sharing tweets by President Donald Trump. Trump has also accused the tech companies of suppressing the circulation of news stories that expose the alleged Hunter Biden scandals.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a conservative government watchdog group noted that Google and YouTube “under false and non-sensical pretenses, double down on election intervention and political censorship against @RealDonaldTrump to help Joe Biden – the after President Trump officially threatens to veto over section 230 reform.”

GOP members of the House Oversight Committee are demanding a hearing to investigate Twitter and Facebook’s “unjustifiable censorship” of the New York Post’s reporting on Biden’s foreign business dealings.

“Reporting indicates this investigation is related to his overseas business dealings,” the GOP members wrote in a new letter obtained by Fox News. “In light of Hunter Biden’s admission that he is under investigation, especially after Big Tech’s unjustifiable censorship of the New York Post’s report, we are renewing our hearing request.”

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
