While appearing on PBS’s Firing Line with Margaret Hoover, former Attorney General William Barr insisted that a government “deep state” does, in fact, exist.

During a Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs hearing, Senator Josh Hawley questioned Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas about his department's work with “big tech” to suppress stories and social media posts the Biden Administration deemed “misinformation.” According to a report from The Intercept, which was cited by Hawley, the federal government pressured Facebook to suppress posts that question the origins of COVID-19, the prevalence of racial injustice, and the Biden Administration’s decision to withdraw from Afghanistan. Mayorkas conceded that his department meets with different tech companies but denied he has pushed for censorship.
