Republican lawmakers have been using congressional hearings as an opportunity to grill the CEOs of tech companies whose online platforms, they allege, discriminate against conservative content. Republicans typically use their time during the hearings to demand to know why tech platforms "censor" posts from President Donald Trump, intentionally silence voices on the right, and stifle free speech. These talking points have proven to be effective messaging for senators seeking election, as well as for expanding the Republican Party's reach online. Twitter and Facebook have been fielding accusations over anti-conservative bias for years now, after Republicans' criticism of the tech companies increased soon after Trump's election in 2016. And as the political climate grows more polarized, more platforms will emerge that run on lighter enforcement of online rules.

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

The Office of the Attending Physician has not replied to NBC’s repeated requests for comment. Signs around the Senate office buildings suggest mask usage. Sen.

Republicans subpoenaed Dorsey following his company's ban of the story, and he willingly agreed to testify on Tuesday. Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz used his entire allotted time during the October hearing to accuse Republicans of politicizing Section 230 protections.

As President-elect Joe Biden prepares to assemble the key players in his upcoming administration, Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard has been floated as a possible Treasury Secretary. She would be the first woman to lead the Treasury Department, if chosen and confirmed by the Senate. Brainard’s career includes an earlier stint at the Treasury, to which she was confirmed with bipartisan Senate support in 2010 on a 78-19 vote. After leaving the Treasury in late 2013, she moved to the Fed, also with bipartisan backing — she was confirmed in June 2014 by a 61-31 vote. "The Biden administration will look for centrist candidates on key economic and financial posts."

For many, the testimony of Big Tech CEOs may evoke a similar feeling. There will be no damning self-incrimination on camera that leads to a dramatic and wholesale reversal of fortunes for Big Tech. Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn asked Google CEO Sundar Pichai if an employee who had criticized her had been fired. Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson read out a tweet that had identified itself as satire and had falsely claimed Johnson had strangled a dog. "Republicans can and should join us in addressing the real problems posed by Big Tech," Markey said.
