In the News…

Carolyn Maloney, chair of the House Oversight Committee, is asking the FBI to conduct a “robust examination” of the role social media site Parler played in the January 6 incursion of the Capitol, specifically whether the platform was a “potential facilitator” of planning or inciting violence.

In a letter to the FBI, she requested they review whether Parler facilitated planning and questioned whether it is a “potential conduit for foreign governments who may be financing civil unrest in the United States.”

She wrote, “It is clear that Parler houses additional evidence critical to investigations of the attack on the Capitol.” She went on to question whether Parler has financial ties to Russia.

Parler’s CEO Jeffrey Wernick said they welcome her call to have the Federal Bureau of Investigation conduct a robust examination of their policies and actions.
