YouTube is banning Wisconsin's Republican U.S. Senator for a week for talking about coronavirus treatments. 

The company on Friday said it is suspending Ron Johnson for seven days for violating their medical misinformation policy. 

Johnson talked about using drugs like Hydroxychloroquine and other cheaper drugs to treat the coronavirus. 

YouTube says it's policy prohibits videos that mention those kinds of treatments. 

Johnson says his suspension shows that YouTube has too much power.
