House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan subpoenaed the Center for Countering Digital Hate on Wednesday for communications between the organization and the Biden White House.
Jordan's demand comes as part of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government's investigation into the administration's alleged collusion with Big Tech to censor Americans. He previously requested the group's voluntary cooperation with his probe earlier this month, highlighting the administration's reliance on a CCDH reported entitled "The Disinformation Dozen."
"It is necessary for Congress to gauge the extent to which the federal government or one of its proxies worked with or relied upon CCDH to censor speech," he told the organization. "The scope of the Committee’s investigation includes intermediaries who may or may not have had a full understanding of the government’s efforts and motivations."
CCDH evidently produced no documents of its own volition, prompting Wednesday's subpoena.
"By declining to produce anything of substance in response to the Committee’s request, CCDH is hindering the Committee’s ability to fulfill its constitutional oversight obligations," Jordan wrote.
