WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Scott Fitzgerald (WI-05), along with Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-04), Rep. Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Rep. Dan Bishop (NC-09), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01),  sent a letter to the Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, Lina Khan, concerning the commission’s review of Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter.

“Big Tech is no friend of conservatives, and neither is President Biden’s FTC. The Left has made clear its discontent with Elon Musk’s attempt to restore free speech on Twitter,” said Congressman Fitzgerald. We must ensure that his bid to purchase the social media company receives a fair review well above the partisan fray by the Commission.”

Under the Biden administration, the Federal Trade Commission has taken a series of actions which have undermined the unbiased and apolitical nature of the enforcement agency, damaging its credibility. The political implications of Musk’s purchase of Twitter cannot be understated as his publicly stated intentions would level the playing field for users of one of the most politically influential social media platforms. The FTC’s review process of Musk and Twitter must avoid the partisan actions that have defined Chair Khan’s tenure in order to maintain the public’s faith in the agency.
