Extremist GOP Reps. Tried to Send a Threatening Letter to Yahoo! But Sent it to the Wrong CEO

Republicans have tried to shut down an investigation into the 1/6 insurrection at every turn. Unfortunately for them, Democrats have pushed forward with an investigation which features two GOP Reps.

WASHINGTON, DC – JULY 27: (L-R) Rep. Bob Good (R-VA), Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) hold a news conference outside the U.S. Department of Justice on July 27, 2021 in Washington, DC.

As part of that investigation, the panel has requested phone records from that day for a number of Republicans. They include Jim Banks, (IN), Andy Biggs (AZ), Lauren Boebert (CO), Mo Brooks (AL), Madison Cawthorn (NC), Matt Gaetz (FL), Louie Gohmert (TX), Paul Gosar (AZ), Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), Jody Hice (GA), Scott Perry (PA).

Those Reps sent a letter to Yahoo! in an attempt to stop their records from being released. Unfortunately for them they sent it to Marissa Mayer, who left Yahoo! in 2017. The current CEO of the company is Guru Gowrappan.

The letter read, in part, “You are receiving this letter because news reports indicate that your company received a request to turn over your clients’ private and confidential data to Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives.”

The note continues, “Congress has no general power to inquire into private affairs and to compel disclosure in order to expose for the sake of exposure. It states if the companies comply with congressional requests for the data in question, the undersigned will pursue all legal remedies.”

The letter will also be sent out to a number of other companies. It is unknown if the Republicans looked up the leaders of those companies before sending.
