His company did not provide the requested information.

House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan is considering holding Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg accountable for contempt of the U.S. Congress.

Sources with knowledge of the situation tell FOX Business that Meta* did not provide data to Congress regarding the company’s activities related to content censorship, as requested by Congress.

After the Republicans took control of the House of Representatives in January, Jordan’s Judiciary Committee formally issued Meta* a subpoena in February of this year in a document censorship case.

In May, Jordan contacted Meta* to warn that the company’s response was insufficient because it had not complied with a subpoena request for internal communications between Meta* employees.

A Meta* spokesperson said in response, “We provided over 50,000 pages of documents in response to the committee’s request and provided 10 current and former employees to discuss external and internal issues. We look forward to continuing to work with the committee in the future.”

However, the documents provided did not comply with the request of the judicial committee, which is considered as disrespectful to Congress.

* The Meta company is recognized as extremist in Russia and banned.
