    The House Oversight and Reform Committee has asked the FBI to investigate the role that Parler, a social media website and app popular with conservatives, played in the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a New York Democrat who chairs the panel, cited press reports that detailed violent threats on Parler in her letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday. Maloney noted that numerous Parler users have been arrested and charged with threatening violence against elected officials, or for their role in participating in the attack.  Her letter also cited reporting from DailyMail.com on Parler CEO John Matze's Russian wife Alina Mukhutdinova, and Maloney alleged that the company has suspicious 'connections to Russia'.

    (CBS4) – Rep. Ken Buck, a Republican who represents Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, joined 24 of his Republican colleagues in sending a letter expressing support for the Trump Administration’s efforts to stop TikTok, and other social media companies, from stealing Americans’ data. “These popular apps’ data collection practices, coupled with China’s onerous cybersecurity laws requiring all companies operating in China, including TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, to share user data with CCP authorities, present a very real threat to U.S. national security. As such, we urge your administration to take decisive action to protect the American people’s privacy and safety,” Rep. Buck and co-signers wrote. “It is clear that the United States should not trust TikTok or any other Chinese-affiliated social media websites or apps to protect Americans’ data, privacy, or security. As such, we urge you to take strong action to stop the CCP’s sophisticated espionage campaign against our country...
    Roughly 100 Ford employees requested the company stop building and selling police vehicles amid calls by anti-police protesters to defund departments, the Detroit Free Press reported. Ford  heard out the employees, which make up a small fraction of the more than 85,000 US employees. The company described the concerns as expressed in a “respectful” and “constructive” manner, according to the Free Press. “We want to hear and listen to all employees, understand their point of view and be transparent about the actions and positions we are taking,” Mark Truby, chief communications officer at Ford, told the Free Press. “It’s a healthy dialogue.” Some workers sent around a letter asking the company to “cease development, production, and sale” of all police vehicles, and want the company to take action by July 15, according to Jalopnik. A hybrid police car is seen at the unveiling of two new Ford Fusion hybrid pursuit-rated...
    Employees inside Ford have asked the company’s leadership to stop making and selling police vehicles, according to Jalopnik. In response, Ford CEO Jim Hackett has told employees in a letter that he doesn’t think it’s “controversial that the Ford Police Interceptor helps officers do their job” and that Ford will continue the business. The internal discussion, which Ford confirmed to The News Brig, comes as the country is gripped by national movements for racial justice and against police brutality that were sparked by the killing of George Floyd. Ford is far and away the leading automaker in the US when it comes to making and selling specially-designed vehicles for law enforcement, making up some two-thirds of the market. While it’s not a big source of the company’s annual revenue (which was $156 billion in 2019), Ford has long maintained that its overall lineup benefits from new technologies that get...
    The Chinese private equity firm BHR Partners updated its business records on April 20 to remove Hunter Biden as a member of its board of directors, but he continues to hold a 10% ownership stake in the company through his LLC, Chinese business records show. Hunter Biden’s departure from BHR’s board was submitted to China’s National Credit Information Publicity System (NCIPS) more than six months after he pledged to relinquish his position with the firm “on or by October 31,” according to Qixinbao and Baidu, two independent services that provide registration information on Chinese corporations based on NCIPS filings. The records also show that Hunter Biden continues to hold a 10% equity stake in BHR through his company, Skaneateles LLC, as of Friday, a position he maintains despite a pledge in December from his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, that none of his family members would “be engaged in...
              Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said Google and its parent company, Alphabet, pose a “threat to a free and fair press in America” in a letter sent Sunday to U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr. The Department of Justice is currently investigating Google in an antitrust probe, but a recent report from The Daily Caller found that investigators do not appear to be examining claims of bias in the company’s search engine. “As your antitrust investigation of Google intensifies, I urge you to thoroughly scrutinize how the company’s anticompetitive practices could lead to the crippling of journalistic freedom. I also ask that your probe examine abuses in both the online advertising and online search markets, and to take enforcement action swiftly before further economic harm results,” said Blackburn. As she notes in her letter, Google took action last week towards demonetizing two conservative news outlets...
