Ohio House Representative Jim Jordan, one of Trump’s most loyal attack dogs in Congress, was particularly angry. During the hearing, Jim Jordan asked Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai if he could “assure the Americans” that Google would not use its features to give former Vice President Joe Biden, candidate Democrat in the presidency for 2020, an advantage over Donald Trump in the presidential elections.

Sundar Pichai claimed that Google is “completely non-partisan” and does not favor one candidate over another in elections.

After Jim Jordan finished asking his questions, Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon stood up and said, “I’d like to bring your attention to antitrust law rather than fringe conspiracy theories.” .

Jim Jordan got angry with his coworker saying, “We have the mail”, possibly in reference to an email that was leaked to Fox News in which the former head of the multicultural market at Google expresses his support for the increase. of the electoral participation of the Latino population in the United States.

Other lawmakers in the courtroom then started yelling at Jim Jordan and telling him his time was up, while committee chair MP David Cicilline of Rhode Island repeatedly knocked with his hammer to silence Jim Jordan and restore order.

When Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin yelled at Jim Jordan to “put on his mask,” the latter used the remark to refer to another Republican conspiracy theory about “unmasking” the name of the former national security adviser Michael Flynn in U.S. Intelligence Reports after the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

At another point, Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz used up a significant portion of his question time
