The Daily Beast is reporting that in 2019, Mark Zuckerberg and Jared Kushner allegedly struck a deal to allow fictional right wing propaganda to be freely posted on Facebook during the 2020 election – without any fact checking intervention – in exchange for the Trump regime not bringing heavy handed government regulations against Facebook.
If this is true, then Zuckerberg and Kushner both need to go to prison. It’s the kind of quid pro quo that not only should be illegal, it is illegal. Alright fine, Zuckerberg can have a plea deal as long as he testifies against Kushner at trial.
In fact there need to be congressional hearings on this. Subpoena Zuckerberg and Kushner, make them publicly testify about this, and make it a national story. If such an ugly quid pro quo agreement to alter the outcome of the 2020 election really did happen, the American public needs to know about it – as loudly as possible.
