Nunes calls for racketeering investigation into Amazon, Apple, Google following Parler ban

FOX NEWS — Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., called for a racketeering investigation on Sunday following AmazonApple and Google’s decisions to suspend the alternative social media platform Parler after Wednesday’s U.S. Capitol riot.

During an interview on “Sunday Morning Futures,” Nunes said Amazon, Apple and Google’s suspension of Parler is “clearly a violation'” of antitrust, civil rights and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, which is a federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization.

“I don’t know where the hell the Department of Justice is at right now or the FBI,” the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence told host Maria Bartiromo.

Nunes argued that “there should be a racketeering investigation on all the people that coordinated this attack on not only a company, but on all of those like us.
