Following last week’s release of the revealing emails of Dr. Anthony Fauci, which included mutual admiration correspondence he had with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the top two Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight Committee want copies of ALL company employees’ communications — both internal and externally with government employees — as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and censorship.
The online schmoozing between Zuckerberg and Fauci, the director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectiousness Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, included promotion of a special Facebook database about the coronavirus, and an invitation to Fauci to record a video to promote the project. It is widely known that Facebook (and Twitter) have banned any discussion or posts by users that do not conform to the government’s official narrative on the virus, its origins, and how to respond to it.
National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), an ethics watchdog group, along with Andrew Miller, a former aide to Roger Stone who challenged the constitutionality of Special Counsel Robert Mueller with NLPC’s support, filed a complaint against Mueller prosecutor Aaron Zelinsky today with the Office of Professional Responsibility at the Justice Department.
The 17-page complaint with exhibits alleges ethical misconduct by abusing the grand jury in seeking Mr. Miller’s testimony, misleading the court at a May 29, 2019 hearing about why the government failed to expedite the case after the court of appeals denied the Mueller challenge on February 26, 2019, and switching grand juries on Mr. Miller without informing his attorney and the court.

“The deceptive_news domain blacklist is going to be used by many search features to filter problematic sites that violate the good neighbor and misrepresentation policies,” the leaked document says, later adding:
“The beginning of the workflow starts when a website is placed on a watchlist which is used for monitoring of sites to determine if they violate the Good Neighbor Policy. This watchlist is … Read More ➡
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has a well-earned reputation for vindictiveness. But she’s now reaped poetic justice. Yesterday the Texas Democrat resigned her posts as chairman of a House Judiciary subcommittee and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation following a wrongful termination suit filed earlier this month by an ex-female staffer identified in court documents as “Jane Doe.” The former aide, who seeks $75,000 in damages, had been fired last spring after stating her intent to pursue legal action against a former foundation employee, Damien Jones, who allegedly raped her back in the fall of 2015, a time during which she interned for another House member. Lee has denied wrongdoing from the start. But increasing pressure from black colleagues helped persuade her to step down.
