On Wednesday, Republican Kentucky Representative Thomas Massie voiced his concerns to Attorney General Merrick Garland over the Justice Department’s probe into Elon Musk while allegedly ignoring an examination of Mark Zuckerberg. This gap, he posited, could be evidence of a political prejudice.
At a House Judiciary Committee hearing, Massie mentioned that X CEO and founder Musk had exposed left-wing repression. CEO of tech giant Meta, Zuckerberg, has given hundreds of millions to the Democratic Party. According to Massie, the Department of Justice is investigating two of Musk’s firms but none of Zuckerberg’s.
Massie claims that Elon Musk’s criticism of the Joe Biden administration exposed the administration’s censorship apparatus. Now, the Department of Justice has started looking into Elon Musk. Massie noted that in 2020, Mark Zuckerberg paid $400 million to influence the elections in favor of Democrats subtly. No probes have been conducted.
The Kentucky congressman remarked that these tactics look like those used by the mafia to the average American. “If you pay your dues, we ignore you.” He said it indicates that the DOJ shall enforce their will if you interfere. The American people are well aware of these strategies.
In what has become known as the “Twitter Files,” Musk permitted Matt Taibbi to publish batches of internal documents from Twitter communications before his purchase. According to the leaked records, Biden’s campaign staff requested that the corporation remove content about his son Hunter.
An August filing revealed that the DOJ is looking into allegations of discrimination in employment practices at Musk’s SpaceX. The Department of Justice alleges that SpaceX’s policy of not recruiting asylum seekers and refugees constitutes employment discrimination.
Zuckerberg and his wife provided substantial financing to the Center for Tech and Civic Life to ensure safe voting in the 2020 election. CTCL used the money to help Democratic precincts hire more poll workers, install more ballot drop boxes, and process more mail-in ballots.
