Meta/Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is being hit with formal demands to turn over any and all documents showing its internal communications with government agencies, all discussion of the New York Post's Hunter Biden laptop story, and any correspondence with the FBI showing its interference in the 2020 election.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who may chair powerful Senate committees in 2022, issued a letter to the billionaire CEO on Monday demanding to know more about the role his company appears to have played suppressing stories at government officials' behest to tilt the election towards the Democratic Party nominee.

"The American people deserve to know whether the FBI used Facebook as part of their alleged plan to discredit information about Hunter Biden," said the letter, which was obtained and published by the New York Post. "If so, Congress and the American people require clarity with respect to the extent the FBI communicated with Facebook during the 2020 election about Hunter Biden-related information."

The senators point to a recent interview that Zuckerberg had with popular podcast host Joe Rogan as evidence of FBI election interference.
