Internal FCC documents obtained by Motherboard using a Freedom of Information Act request show that the independent, nonpartisan FCC Office of Inspector General—acting on orders from Congressional Republicans—investigated the claim that Obama interfered with the FCC’s net neutrality process and found it was nonsense. This Republican narrative of net neutrality as an Obama-led takeover of the internet, then, was wholly refuted by an independent investigation and its findings were not made public prior to Thursday’s vote.
The longer this goes on the more obvious it becomes that Ajit Pai is a plant from Verizon, whose job is to torpedo Net Neutrality before he’s fired for incompetence. Congress can still stop the Verizon/FCC power grab by letting Congress know. We have to stop this asshole and the assholes that he works for. Join the Battle for Net Neutrality.
