The FBI met with representatives from the top social media companies on a weekly basis in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, it was reported on Saturday.

Agent Elvis Chan reportedly made the revelation during a sworn deposition for a Republican-led case against the Biden administration charging alleged social media 'censorship,' according to Fox News.
