    The Republicans serving on the January 6 committee investigating the Capitol riot don't have much to say about reports that the FBI told Facebook to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story.

    Mark Zuckerberg's admission to Joe Rogan that Facebook hid the Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the 2020 election at the bidding of the FBI has outraged most major Republicans. But Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) - who just lost her re-election bid - and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), both of whom have repeatedly cited their devotion to the Constitution in explaining their roles on the Jan. 6 committee, have yet to weigh in.

    Neither representative responded to requests for comment from The Daily Wire asking them to weigh in on the news, which broke Thursday evening. They do not appear to have otherwise publicly discussed the revelation.

    "We just kind of thought, hey, look, if the FBI, which I still view as a legitimate institution in this country, it's like very professional law enforcement, they come to us and tell us that we need to be on guard about something, then I want to take that seriously," Zuckerberg told Rogan.

    In the hours after news broke about Zuckerberg's admission, Kinzinger tweeted about reports that former President Donald Trump's social media platform is late paying its bills to RightForge, its web hosting company. He also criticized pro-Trump Christian pastors.

    Cheney weighed in last week on the FBI's raid of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home, saying, "I've seen no evidence that there was any political motivation."

    "I was ashamed to hear Republicans immediately and reflexively attack the FBI agents who executed the search warrant. I was disgusted when I learned that President Trump had released the names of the agents when he released the unredacted search warrant, and that has now caused violence," Cheney added. "This is a really dangerous moment."

    And Kinzinger accused Trump of inciting his supporters against the FBI, saying in a CNN interview, "It's ridiculous obviously for what the former president has done, in terms of saying, 'This is an attack on my home, I did nothing wrong,' and of course, from the little bit we know, it seems like there's certainly good reasons for the FBI to have done what they did."

    "Yes, absolutely, 100 percent," he responded when asked if he held Trump responsible for inciting his supporters to violence.

    Kinzinger added: "Members of Congress, Senators, any Republican elected official out there that rushes to be the first on television or the first to Twitter to basically condemn the FBI - I'll tell you as a guy who grew up in the right, and grew up as a Republican, there's always been this strain of people who believe that the government is out there to get them, that the FBI represents that part of the government that's out there to get people: This stokes that, it's really dangerous, and I fear it could get worse unless people are way more responsible."

Big Tech Platforms are acting as the defacto policing /judgement force of the internet by deciding whose Speech is most relevant, which Speech might languish, and which Speech must die, never to be resurrected. Is this what you expected to occur on OUR internet when we began expending so much of our time on this medium?
  Yes, I have always trusted a larger entity to divine for me what is true and what is real.
  No, I instead expected the internet to become a conduit to information that might enlighten my perspective by the choices I make while using OUR internet.
  I never think this deeply; this makes my brain hurt.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.

Are you in favor of the Joe Biden Executive Order, just weeks before the midterm elections, to shift the Higher Education debt, of up to $10,000.00 per individual, to the taxpayers of this Republic (estimated at 1/2 trillion)?
  Yes, it costs so much to go to college, and the right job is so hard to find in my focus of study.
  No, one's individual debt should be born by the beneficiary of that debt; certainly NOT by others that work to support their own families and pay their own debts, and their taxes.
  I am bereft of knowledge, so who cares?

Is it fair or even patriotic to threaten states that do not conform to the Democratic Socialists' mandate to control the outcome of Free and Fair elections enacted by constitutionally guaranteed states' legislatures?
  Yes, all elections must be federalized so that the whim of the majority political party can set the standard for all elections.
  No, Our Founders purposefully decentralized elections by guaranteeing only states' legislatures the independent right to enact Free and Fair elections.
  I don't vote and I don't care.
