  • Retired Michigan Republican Rep. Pete Hoekstra, the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said revelations that the FBI and intelligence community were pressuring social media companies to censor Americans’ opinions is “totally disgusting” and should result in the punishment of officials and wholesale reform of agencies.
  • “From my perspective, there should be people going to jail for what they were doing,” Hoekstra told Just the News. “This is scary for the American people that our intelligence community is being used to target Americans and to censor Americans’ speech. Government has no role there. The intelligence community has absolutely no role.”
