Republicans demand answers from Facebook over Fauci emails

Marsha Blackburn R-Tn., says Mark Zuckerberg should be called to testify before Congress on ‘Fox Business Tonight’

The GOP is demanding answers from Facebook on its censorship of coronavirus origins in relationship with Dr. Anthony Fauci and Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., told "FOX Business Tonight" she agrees Mark Zuckerberg should provide some answers.

"Mark Zuckerberg should be called to testify on this issue," she said. "If it turns out that they knew early on that there was a possibility of an engineered virus and a leak from that lab, and there was work to suppress this information, of course, that is something that should be delved into, and this needs to be done under oath."

Blackburn revealed Senate plans to investigate the matter from several different oversight committees including the judiciary committee looking into the suppression of information and the commerce committee holding Big Tech accountable.
