Jan 6 Commission Tells Social Media Platforms To Turn Over ALL User Data Records Pertaining to Capital Hill Terrorist Attack

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) has served notice to the top social media platforms in the country to turn over all relevant records of users’ comments about overturning the 2020 presidential election as well as those expressing plans or strategies for the Jan 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Via Raw Story:

“The letters to the social media companies seek a range of records, including data, reports, analyses, and communications stretching back to spring of 2020,” Thompson said in a statement on Friday. “The Select Committee is also seeking information on policy changes social media companies adopted—or failed to adopt—to address the spread of false information, violent extremism, and foreign malign influence, including decisions on banning material from platforms and contacts with law enforcement and other government entities.”

Facebook, Google, Twitter, Parler, 4chan, Twitch, TikTok, andl other social media outlets have two weeks to respond to the request.
