(Natural News) Chairman Dan Bishop (R-N.C.) of the Subcommittee on Oversight Investigations and Accountabilities held a hearing the other day about the role the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) have played in illicitly targeting Americans with censorship, which is a violation of their First Amendment rights.

Entitled “Censorship Laundering: How the U.S. Department of Homeland Security enables the silencing of dissent,” the hearing, which you can watch the opening of below, unpacked how the federal government, via non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that were used as cover, targeted the online voices of millions of Americans – all in the name of fighting “misinformation,” “disinformation,” and “misinformation.”

The nerve center of the government’s censorship scheme, this censorship laundering effort, as Bishop called it, allowed DHS and CISA to stray well outside the bounds of their jurisdiction of keeping an eye out for foreign election interference, to instead begin targeting Americans and their free speech rights through a veil of NGOs, which includes the so-called Election Integrity Project (EIP).

“What was initially a limited effort to counter foreign disinformation on elections metastasized into a sprawling effort that directly or indirectly censors Americans’ discourse and debate that are the hallmark of our democracy,” Bishop stated at the hearing – watch below:
