The House Republicans are suing Elvis Chan for ignoring two subpoenas for him to testify on the Biden censorship of honest conservatives who disagree with him. Chan is considered to be right in the middle of the bullying of social media in order to hide the unconstitutional censorship by the Biden administration that defies the First Amendment rights of American citizens. Chan dodged two congressional subpoenas from the Judiciary Committee related to its investigation into the extent to which government agencies pressure social media companies to silent dissent.
The complaint asserts:
“Publicly available information indicated, and information uncovered during the Committee’s investigation to date has confirmed, that Chan was at the heart of the FBI’s interactions with technology companies, including Facebook and Twitter.”
“After Chan failed to voluntarily appear before the Committee, it subpoenaed him to testify at a deposition. But Chan defied the Subpoena. Chan’s employer, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), instructed him not to appear, and he complied with that directive. By refusing to comply with the Subpoena, Chan is frustrating the Committee’s ability to conduct oversight — a critical part of the legislative power that the Constitution vests in Congress,” the complaint states, referring to both subpoenas. The complaint goes into further detail about Chan’s role in the FBI’s coordination with social media companies and the dispute between the committee and the DOJ.”
THE FACEBOOK FILES PART 4. FBI LIED ABOUT MEETING WITH BIG TECH REGARDING NY POST’S HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY
Internal FB docs reveal that an FBI Special Agent made false statements in testimony about the FBI’s role in the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story

The FBI said:
“Today, after an FBI employee traveled across the country to voluntarily participate in a scheduled interview, he was denied the right to have his chosen legal counsel accompany him.”
“Upon arrival at the Capitol, Committee staff directed agency counsel to leave the premises, and the interview was unable to proceed.”
House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan previously accused Chan of lying under oath about his role in the FBI’s communications with Facebook over the Hunter Biden laptop story, based on internal Facebook documents Jordan obtained during the social media censorship investigation.
The committee’s investigation and the “Twitter Files” documents appear to show Chan was a central liaison between the FBI and social media platforms. He was allegedly involved with the FBI’s effort to pressure Twitter and Facebook into censoring the New York Post’s reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop archive leading up to the 2020 election.
The House Judiciary Committee released a report in November on how the federal government worked with universities to target political speech online. One of the report’s exhibits was an email Chan sent to Alex Stamos, an executive at the Stanford Internet Observatory (SIO), describing the mandate of the FBI’s San Fransisco outpost to coordinate with social media companies.
“The FBI [San Francisco] mandate is to be the conduit to/from the social media companies for all election-related threats, whether foreign or domestic. We’ve been receiving mostly domestic voter suppression-related accounts to flag for social media companies as each state had its primaries,” Chan said.
The committee’s censorship investigation is ongoing.
