​Sen. Ted Cruz said he considers the big tech behemoths the largest threats to “free and fair elections” in the country because of their oversized influence, but Google tops the list because of its global reach.

“I think hands down Google is the most dangerous company on the face of the planet. Google is the most dangerous because it’s the biggest by far. It is the most powerful by far. It controls the vast majority of searches people do,” the Texas Republican told Breitbart News on Saturday.

Cruz, who notably got into a heated exchange with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey during a Senate hearing in November over The Post’s reporting about Hunter Biden, deemed the social media platform “the most brazen.”

“We just recently had a hearing where Jack Dorsey testified with a beard that looked like he had crawled out from under a bridge,” Cruz said, referring to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing about censorship and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act that provides big tech with liability protections when it posts third-party content.

Cruz grilled Dorsey about why Twitter decided to censor The Post’s stories about Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings in the days before the Nov. 3 election.

“I asked Mr. Dorsey at that hearing, ‘Who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what we’re allowed to read?’ Look, Twitter brazenly censored the New York Post when it ran stories about Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s corruption concerning China, concerning Ukraine and Russia, and they just silenced it,” Cruz said during the interview.

“Not only did they prevent you and I from circulating those stories, for two weeks, they banned the New York Post,” he continued. “The New York Post is not some fly-by-night organization. It is the newspaper with the fourth-highest circulation in the country. It was founded by Alexander freakin’ Hamilton.”
