Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., fired back after YouTube decided to block video of him on the Senate floor naming an individual who has been reported to be the anonymous whistleblower who filed a complaint that touched off President Trump’s impeachment.

YouTube spokesperson Ivy Choi told Fox News that they had “removed hundreds of videos and over ten thousand comments that contained the name” because it violated their Community Guidelines.

The article goes on to state the following:

“A chilling and disturbing day in America when giant web companies such as @YouTube decide to censor speech,” Paul tweeted Thursday morning. “Protected speech, such as that of a senator on the Sen floor, can be blocked from getting to the people. This is dangerous & politically biased.”

Conservative analyst Mark Dice responded, “We’ve been trying to tell you what YouTube has been doing for years Senator. They manipulate the search results at the request of liberal media outlets when they complain about the top results, and is the second largest search engine next to Google. Contact me for details sir.”

Another Twitter user, Alexander Muse, asked, “How does YouTube know the identity of the whistleblower. Perhaps you can start an investigation into who leaked the name to them?!?”
