Trump calls for hearings into DEEP STATE attacks on free speech trends now
He issued the demand Wednesday, in the latest of his campaign videos.
'We need a free press, we need free speech, we need fair elections, and we need borders,' he said in the video obtained by DailyMail.com.
'The new Congress should immediately hold hearings to investigate the role of the FBI and other federal agencies in censoring lawful speech.
'Congressional leaders should promptly issue subpoenas in furtherance of this goal.'
His call comes a day after the House voted to set up a committee to probe national security agencies, and what Republicans said was a plot to silence conservatives, including Trump.

Trump has placed free speech and the dangers of Big Tech at the heart of his 2024 election campaign.

Last month he used one to promise to 'ban federal money from being used to label domestic speech as "mis-" or "dis-information."'
The 'Twitter Files' have provided a rich trove for conservatives intent on claiming a conspiracy against them.
With the latest releases of internal Twitter communications, the platform's owner Elon Musk claimed the FBI paid it millions of dollars to censor information before it reached the public.
His evidence came from an email screenshot showing that the FBI had paid $3.4million as part of a 'reimbursement program' for the platform's work responding to information requests.
