Jan. 6 Committee Raises ‘White Flag,’ Withdraws Major Action Against Trump

(Worthy Insights) – The House Jan. 6 committee has dropped its subpoena against former President Donald Trump as it wraps up work and prepares to dissolve next week.

Twitter Files Reveal Internal Dialogues On Why Trump Was Banned From Platform

Internal Twitter conversations released Friday by reporter Matt Taibbi showed the deliberations that Twitter executives had when deciding to ban former President Donald Trump from the platform in January of 2021.

Trump’s account ban was ultimately justified by Twitter executives as looking at the “context surrounding” Trump and his supporters “over the course of the election and frankly last 4+ years,” one internal conversation shows, according to Taibbi’s Twitter thread.

Before the riot on Jan. 6, Twitter was already closely moderating Trump’s Twitter account by employing “a vast array of tools for manipulating visibility,” Taibbi tweeted. Trump’s account was reportedly “covered in bots,” with “bot” meaning “any automated heuristic moderation rule,” on the day of the riot, according to Taibbi. Source: Daily Caller

‘Twitter Files’ Expose Michelle Obama’s Personal Involvement in Trump’s Ban, But That’s Just the Beginning

The latest installment of the “Twitter Flies” notes the extent to which public pressure as well as private machinations contributed to Twitter’s decision to ban former President Donald Trump in January 2021.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama posted an irate tweet on Jan. 7, 2021, one day after the Capitol incursion.

“Now is the time for Silicon Valley companies to stop enabling this monstrous behavior — and go even further than they have already by permanently banning this man from their platforms and putting in place policies to prevent their technologies from being used by the nation’s leaders to fuel insurrection,” she wrote in part of her statement.

Report: Trump Aims to Drain the Swamp in 2025 – Plans Post-Election Purge of DOJ, FBI, Intelligence Community

Former President Donald Trump may not have made an official announcement about a second run at the White House, but according to insiders he has already decided how he would gut the deep state if he does run and win a second term, a new report states.

Trump is eyeing a wave of firings, restructuring and cutting of the federal government that could see as many as 50,000 federal employees fired, the political news site Axios reported Friday.

One of Trump’s campaign aims in 2016 was to “drain ‘the swamp’” — a euphemism that has long been applied to Washington D.C. — and to reduce or eliminate the deep state full of perfunctory federal employees that costs the government billions and has enshrined the power of the unelected, unaccountable regulatory state.  Source: Western Journal

Famed liberal law professor predicts Bannon convictions will be overturned

Famed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz is predicting that ex-Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s contempt of Congress conviction by a jury will be overturned on constitutional grounds.

Friday’s convictions are “entirely in violation of the Constitution” in part because the jury was comprised of “probably 97 percent Trump haters,” Dershowitz told Newsmax.

”The only provision of the Constitution, which appears basically twice, is trial by jury in and in front of a fair jury,” he explained.

”Number one, he didn’t have a fair jury. Number two, the judge took his defenses away from him,” he added. Source: Just the News
