Another edition of the Twitter Files dropped on Tuesday.
Perhaps you were distracted
. The latest edition comes from Matt Taibbi and is called
Twitter and the FBI “Belly Button”
. The jist of it is that in 2020, everything was Russian disinformation, and everyone in the government expected Twitter to do something about it. And you can't talk about Russian disinformation without discussing the biggest purveyor of it, Rep. Adam Schiff.
If he wasn't
lying about Russia
(according to critics), he was
lying about Ukraine
(according to critics). Anything to have an excuse to impeach
. That was his main quest. It turns out from the Twitter Files, he had a side quest to get journalists suspended who he didn't like. Schiff wanted Paul Sperry, a journalist from Real Clear Investigations and the New York Post, kicked off the bird app. The claim was that he was spreading "what comes between P and R" conspiracies.
Schiff's ask was so ridiculous, not ever the commie-as-f*ck sympathizers as Twitter would oblige.
Silly, Schiff. Had he gone through the FBI like a normal Democrat, he could have gotten Sperry yeeted. The reporter
was permanently suspended two years
later after reporting on the FBI raiding Donald Trump's house.
Of course, as Sperry says, “I have never promoted any ‘[between P and R] conspiracies.’ Ever. Not on Twitter. Not anywhere.” But Sperry was the guy who leaked the name of the "Ukraine whistleblower" at the center of the first impeachment of Donald Trump. Schiff was angry about that.
