Senator Josh Hawley has found a new publisher after his book was dropped by Simon & Schuster in the wake of the siege of the US Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump.
The conservative publisher Regnery announced Monday that Hawley’s The Tyranny of Big Tech will come out this spring.
“Regnery is proud to stand in the breach with him. And the warning in his book about censorship obviously couldn’t be more urgent,” Regnery President and Publisher Thomas Spence said in a statement.
Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, has been widely condemned for his encouragement of the Jan 6 protest that ended with a violent mob rampaging through the Capitol.
Thousands had gathered that day as Congress voted to formally certify Joe Biden’s win over Trump. Hawley and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, also a Regnery author, led objections in the Senate to Biden’s victory, citing baseless claims the election was stolen.
