Ray Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, had an uphill battle with his Democratic colleagues at a congressional hearing Wednesday with tech veterans.
Jordan grilled conservative CEO Sundar Pichai over Google’s alleged search engine bias against conservatives and whether Pichai could pledge that Google would not intervene to benefit Joe Biden in the upcoming election.
However, Rep. Mary Gay Schnallon, D-Pa., Dismissed Jordan’s concerns as a “fringe conspiracy theory.”
“Mr. Chairman, we have the email,” Jordan replied, referring to an email written by a Google employee suggesting that in 2016 the tech giant supported Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Committee Chairman David Cicillin, DR.I., scolded Jordan for interrupting Scannon’s interrogation. Rape Jamie Ruskin, D-Md., Joined the Ohio Congress by ordering him to “put on his mask”.
“Mr. Ruskin, you want to talk about the mask? Why would you disclose the name of Michael Flynn, the Treasury’s deputy secretary?” Jordan shot back.
It was in reference to Ruskin’s wife, Sarah Bloom Ruskin, who was revealed to be an Obama-era appointee who requested the unveiling of then-incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn.
“What I want to know is that if someone comes after my intention to ask questions, I want to get a chance to answer,” Jordan told Sisilyn, who continued to formally ask questions to Scanlon .

Back in May, Republican lawmakers released the list, which came from the office of then-DNI Richard Grenell, showing many of Obama’s top officials who unmasked Flynn between November 2016 and January 2017 before President Trump’s inauguration. Dozens of requests were made. The list included former Vice President Joe Biden, former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former DNI James Clapper, former UN Ambassador Samata Power, former Treasury Secretary Jack Lave, and former White House chief Dennis McDonough . .
