Tech CEOs to Testify Before Senate Judiciary Committee

Subpoenas were issued for the January 31 hearing regarding online child exploitation.

The chief executives of top tech companies have responded to subpoenas issued by the Senate Judiciary Committee and are now scheduled to testify at a January 31 hearing on online child sexual exploitation. 

The committee issued subpoenas to the heads of Meta, TikTok, Snap, Discord, and X, formerly known as Twitter earlier this year. After not receiving a response from Discord and X, legislators sent the U.S. Marshals Service to deliver the subpoenas directly to the companies, and the CEOs confirmed their participation in the committee’s upcoming hearing.

The committee’s chair Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, jointly stated that tech companies “finally are being forced to acknowledge their failures when it comes to protecting kids. Now that all five companies are cooperating, we look forward to hearing from their CEOs. Parents and kids demand action.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Senators Durbin and Graham as they head the committee’s effort to protect children from being exploited through social media.
  • For members of the Senate Judiciary Committee as they prepare for the hearing with tech CEOs.
  • For American parents to be discerning regarding their children’s potential exposure to harmful or dangerous content and entities online.
