Texas Republican Rep. Troy Nehls submitted Joe Rogan’s controversial podcast with Dr. Robert Malone to the Congressional Record on Monday after it had been removed on YouTube, saying the move will keep it from being censored.

“Today, I submitted the transcript from the @joerogan experience podcast episode #1757 with Dr. Robert Malone to the Congressional Record,” Nehls, who is also a medical doctor, tweeted.

“Big tech wants to restrict your access to this information- but they cannot censor the Congressional Record,” he added.

Nehls also posted the full episode transcript to his own congressional website.

“By deplatforming Dr. Robert Malone for voicing opposition and removing the interview, Twitter and YouTube are once again proving that they don’t work for their users but for big Pharma, big media, and the elites,” Nehls said in a statement.

“When we stray away from our core principles of freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of debate, democracy is lost. Today, I entered the transcript of the Joe Rogan Experience #1757 into the Congressional Record to preserve the podcast forever. Big Tech may be able to censor information on their own platforms, but they cannot censor the Congressional Record,” he added.

His statement also referred to Malone as “a widely published mRNA vaccine expert who went on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast to raise concerns over the COVID-19 vaccine.”

YouTube reportedly removed a clip of Rogan’s podcast with Malone that was posted on Friday.

“This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines,” now shows where the episode was previously posted.

“During the interview, Malone, who claims to be part of a collaboration that reportedly created the mRNA technology widely used in the COVID-19 vaccines, talked about vaccines, mandates, amongst other pandemic-related topics,” the Post Millennial reported.

Rogan invited Malone onto his podcast after the doctor was banned from Twitter last week over the information he shared regarding the coronavirus.

On Sunday, Rogan invited followers on Twitter to join him as he makes the move to the free speech social platform Gettr. “Join me on GETTR,” he tweeted.

The Daily Wire previously reported on the move and Rogan’s rapid growth on the new platform:

On GETTR, the host suggested his move to newer website was predicated by recent censorship from Twitter. “Just in case s*** over at Twitter gets even dumber, I’m here now as well. Rejoice!” he posted.

The announcement from Rogan, who has a stunning 7.8 million followers on Twitter, sparked his name to trend Sunday afternoon and evening for hours.

“Did Joe Rogan just end Twitter?” Marc Lobliner posted, generating more than 20,000 “likes” in a matter of hours.
