January 6 panel targets social media companies with subpoenas after 'inadequate responses' to voluntary request - CNN

The panel specifically raises questions about how YouTube's election misinformation content moderation policy worked.

To Meta, the committee states that the parent company of Facebook has still not turned over key documents or responded to specific requests for information.

Thompson highlights in the letter that Meta has still not explained to the committee why Facebook disbanded its Civic Integrity team following the November 2020 election.

"Despite repeated and specific requests for documents related to these matters, the Select Committee still has not received these materials," Thompson said in his letter to Meta.

The committee also highlights that Meta has "failed to provide critical internal and external analyses conducted by the company regarding misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation relating to the 2020 election, efforts to challenge or overturn the election, and the use of Meta by domestic violent extremists to affect the 2020 election."

"Despite repeated and specific follow-up requests on September 28, 2021, and October 29, 2021, Meta has declined to commit to a deadline for producing or even identifying these materials," the committee adds.

In August, the committee sent requests to 15 social media companies, including those receiving subpoenas Thursday, seeking to understand how misinformation and efforts to overturn the election by both foreign and domestic actors existed on their platforms.

In addition to requesting a paper trail of information, the select committee also asked these social media companies in August to provide information on how they tried to address the misinformation that existed on their platforms and where the holes in doing so might have been.

In the days directly after the attack at the US Capitol, major social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter suspended the accounts of influential promoters of election conspiracy theories -- including Trump himself.
