A Smoking Gun Email Just Landed Adam Schiff In Very Hot Water

Adam Schiff is in for a rough stretch.

Schiff set himself up for this one.

And a smoking gun email just landed Adam Schiff in very hot water.

As American Patriot Daily reports:

Elon Musk’s Twitter Files already showed Schiff’s office illegally pressured Twitter to suspend journalist Paul Sperry.

Sperry reported on the coordination between alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella and Schiff’s office during the Ukraine impeachment hoax.

But that was just the tip of the iceberg.

It turned out Schiff’s office was a conveyor belt of censorship demands to Twitter.

Journalist Matt Taibbi published a new batch of Twitter Files which showed during the 2020 election Schiff’s office ordered Twitter to censor tweets of a photoshopped meme of Joe Biden making a funny face.

Taibbi reported that Schiff’s aides demanded Twitter take down the tweets because Donald Trump began retweeting the satirical meme.

“The real issue was Donald Trump retweeted the Biden pic. To its credit Twitter refused to remove it, with Trust and Safety chief Yoel Roth saying it had obvious ‘humorous intent’ and ‘any reasonable observer’ – apparently, not a Schiff staffer – could see it was doctored,” Taibbi wrote.

To Twitter’s credit they refused Schiff’s censorship commands.

But Schiff did not give up.

Schiff’s office demanded that Twitter censor any posts about his aides and their contact with Ciaramella.

And to their credit again, Twitter refused the censorship order.

However, Twitter did comply with Schiff’s demand to censor so-called “QAnon” content as well as tweets about the hoax Steele dossier by “deamplifyng” them.

“Even when Twitter didn’t suspend an account, that didn’t mean they didn’t act. Schiff’s office repeatedly complained about ‘QAnon related activity’ that were often tweets about other matters, like the identity of the Ukraine ‘whistleblower’ or the Steele dossier,” Taibbi added.

“Twitter policy at the time didn’t ban QAnon, but ‘deamplified’ such accounts. About the batch of tweets that included those above, Twitter execs wrote: ‘We can internally confirm that a number of the accounts flagged are already included in this deamplification,’” Taibbi continued.

Everything Schiff asked Twitter to do is illegal.

The government cannot get around the First Amendment protection of free speech by ordering a private entity to censor.

And now this is twice Elon Musk’s Twitter Files caught Adam Schiff red-handed engaging in illegal censorship.
