  • Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul grilled FBI Director Christopher Wray Thursday collusion between his agency and Facebook.
  • Facebook allegedly eavesdropped on private communications of people who questioned the results of the 2020 presidential election and passed information to the FBI, according to whistleblowers who talked to the New York Post.
  • Facebook allegedly passed along that information to the FBI, which used it to target American citizens.
