Congressman Biggs Sends Letter to Companies Condemning Democrats’ Request for Private Phone Records

September 3, 2021
Press Release

Today, Congressman Andy Biggs, along with ten of his colleagues, sent a letter to thirteen companies condemning Democrats’ attempt to illegally obtain private phone records as part of their investigation into the events of January 6th.  

“The January 6 Select Committee has neither statutory nor constitutional authority to secretly demand phone companies turn over their customers’ personal records,” said Congressman Andy Biggs. “This power-hungry, smear-campaign of a committee knows this request is a blatant overreach of their congressional authority. Yet, they insist these companies make legally compromising decisions. If these phone companies give into this unconstitutional subpoena, they will forever set a precedent for the violation of all Americans’ privacy rights.”

Co-signers: Congressman Jim Banks, Congressman Matt Gaetz, Congressman Jody Hice, Congressman Scott Perry, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, Congressman Louie Gohmert, Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S., Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, Congressman Madison Cawthorn, Congressman Mo Brooks

The letter was sent to the following companies: Amazon, AOL, Apple, AT&T, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Snap, T-Mobile, Twitter, U.S. Cellular Corporation, Verizon, Yahoo!
