California Congressman Adam Schiff got some bad news.
This bombshell will force Schiff into crisis mode.
And that’s because Elon Musk busted Adam Schiff for this illegal act.
Elon Musk previewed that journalist Matt Taibbi would publish two new installments of the Twitter Files.
The latest revelations showed how Democrats and the intelligence community forced Twitter to suspend over 250 accounts including those of journalists and Canadian officials.
One of the accounts that Twitter suspended for over two years was that of investigative reporter Paul Sperry.
Adam Schiff’s team pressured Twitter to ban Sperry complaining that Sperry and others harassed Schiff’s aide, Sean Misko.
“Remove any and all content about Mr. Misko and other Committee staff from its service- to include quotes, retweets, and reactions to that content,” the request to Twitter read. “Suspend the many accounts, including @GregRubini and @paulsperry, which have repeatedly promoted false QAnon conspiracies.”
Schiff’s office also demanded Twitter “stop the spread of future misinformation on Twitter” about Schiff’s aides and also “label and reduce the visibility of any content.”
Taibbi exposed Schiff as a liar for falsely claiming that he never supported censorship in response to a question from Elon Musk asking how many accounts Schiff ordered Twitter to censor.
I don’t support censorship. Or hate speech.
As the (outgoing) CEO of Twitter, how about you? Why not do more to stop slurs against Black people, LGBTQ+ people, Jewish people, and others? Do you commit to providing the public with actual answers and data, not just tweets? https://t.co/aejdHNLud5

The latest round of the Twitter Files found that after a sustained media campaign of gaslighting the public into believing Russian troll farms swung the 2016 election with “misinformation” Twitter eventually turned itself into a subsidiary of the Democrat Party and FBI by obediently following censorship requests.

There is an established Supreme Court case ruling that the government cannot pressure a private actor to censor speech.
While private entities are not bound by the First Amendment the second they begin acting on orders from the government they turn into agents of the state and are thus bound by the Constitution to protect free speech.
And there is now smoking gun evidence that Adam Schiff violated the First Amendment with his office’s unconstitutional demand to censor a journalist who produced critical coverage of Schiff.
