It took escalating Communist Chinese aggression and a smart-phone app that gives groomers and foreign adversaries alike easy access to tens of millions of American children to unite Republicans and Democrats, but it happened Thursday as politicians from both parties confronted the CEO of TikTok.

TikTok’s CEO Shou Zi Chew the House Energy and Commerce Committee that its owner, the Beijing-based internet company ByteDance, “is not an ‘agent’ of communist-led China — amid growing U.S. concerns the immensely popular social media site is a national security threat and omnipresent danger to teens’ mental health,” Just the News reported.

Congressmen from both sides of the aisle on the committee came at Chew like waves on a beach, hitting him with tough questions about: Chinese Communist Party, or CCP, access to Americans’ TikTok user data; the app’s algorithms that hook teens on harmful (even deadly) videos; and the app’s biased moderation, including the banning of NBC star Enes Kanter Freedom, a fierce critic of human rights abuses in Communist China.
