Jeff Sessions sat for one closed door meeting that could change everything
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is rumored to be out the door.
Donald Trump is fed up with him because of the Russia investigation.
But Sessions attended one closed door meeting that could change everything.
Donald Trump and other conservatives have pointed out that social media companies are biased against conservatives.
Twitter got caught shadow banning accounts belonging to prominent Republicans.
All the big social media companies banned pro-Trump radio host Alex Jones.
And Tucker Carlson revealed an email where a Google executive said the company gave a “silent donation” to Hillary Clinton.
Google partnered with left wing groups to drive Hispanics to the polls in key swing states.
The email made it clear that was done to benefit Hillary Clinton.
Sessions announced he would meet with 25 Republican state attorneys general to discuss possible litigation against the tech giants over their bias against conservatives.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is exploring a potential investigation of social media companies and will be briefed on Sept. 25 by Republican state attorneys general who are already examining the firms’ practices, according to two people familiar with the matter.
The meeting — which will include a representative of the Justice Department’s antitrust division — is intended to help Sessions decide if there’s a federal case to be made against companies such as Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. for violating consumer-protection or antitrust laws, the people said. They asked not to be identified discussing the matter because of its sensitivity.
Sessions hasn’t made up his mind about whether to proceed, the people said. At least one of the attorneys general participating in the meeting has indicated he seeks to break up the companies.
A Justice Department probe of the social media giants for potentially improper business practices would likely trigger a political firestorm. President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans have complained that Facebook, Google and Twitter have censored or otherwise suppressed some conservatives.
Conservatives know the tech companies are all run by liberals.
They can control the outcome of elections by manipulating what information gets put in front of voters.
Their past actions demonstrate these platforms are tilted against conservatives.
Trump supporters cheered Sessions taking this meeting and hope he follows through with litigation.
