House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, threatened enforcement action against Google

that could include holding the company in contempt of Congress for failing to produce documents the committee subpoenaed to learn about communications between tech companies and the Biden administration.

In a letter to a lawyer for Google shared exclusively with CNBC, Jordan called the company’s compliance so far “insufficient” and demanded it hand over more information. If the company fails to comply fully by its new May 22 deadline, Jordan warned, “the Committee may be forced to consider the use of one or more enforcement mechanisms.”

Jordan issued subpoenas to the CEOs of Google parent Alphabet

, Amazon, Apple, Meta and Microsoft in February, demanding they hand over communication with the U.S. government to “understand how and to what extent the Executive Branch coerced and colluded with companies and other intermediaries to censor speech.” Jordan requested the companies comply by March 23. He made the request after initially asking the companies to hand over the information voluntarily, but said they had not sufficiently complied.
