FLORIDA REP. MATT GAETZ ASKS THE DOJ TO LAUNCH A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION INTO MARK ZUCKERBERG, ACCUSING THE FACEBOOK CEO OF LYING TO CONGRESS

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz on Monday accused Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg of lying to Congress in 2018 and asked the Justice Department to investigate the matter.

In a letter to Attorney General William Barr, Gaetz alleged that Zuckerberg made false statements to Congress about Facebook's content moderation during two hearings two years ago.

"On both occasions, members of Congress asked Mr. Zuckerberg about allegations that Facebook censored and suppressed content supportive of President Donald Trump and other conservatives," Gaetz wrote.

"In his responses, Mr. Zuckerberg repeatedly and categorically denied any bias against conservative speech, persons, policies, or politics," he added. "Mr. Zuckerberg also dismissed the suggestion that Facebook exercises any form of editorial manipulation."
