Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

“Twitter Files” release from independent journalist Matt Taibbi last week revealed that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) leveraged his position on the Intelligence Committee to influence Twitter to silence reporters who outed his sly maneuvers during President Trump’s impeachment trial.  Elon Musk and Taibbi both posted that Schiff pressed Twitter to ban journalist Paul Sperry’s account in November 2020. New York Post columnist and senior reporter for Sperry said he was targeted by Schiff after reporting on Democrat sources in Trump’s first impeachment trial.  Sperry is considering taking legal action against Schiff.
