Special Counsels Witch Hunt Includes a List of Trump Twitter Engagers that Raises Alarm
Special Counsel Jack Smith has triggered controversy by demanding access to the social media activities of individuals who interacted with former President Donald Trump’s tweets leading up to the January 6 riot, marking a concerning move that reeks of government monitoring.
In a recent revelation from court documents, engaging with Trump’s Twitter account during that period puts individuals on an unsettling government watchlist.
Delving into specifics, Smith’s investigation, aimed at probing Trump’s alleged endeavors to overturn the 2020 election, resulted in a search warrant targeting a broad array of data from October 2020 to January 2021. This includes exhaustive details of Trump’s tweet content, interactions (likes, retweets), and even private messages, alongside the personal information of users who engaged with Trump’s tweets by liking or retweeting them.
The transparency surrounding these lists was not Smith’s intent; he was compelled to disclose them following legal pressure from various media outlets that sought access to his search warrants.
In a timeline breakdown, Smith, appointed as special prosecutor in November 2022 by Joe Biden’s Attorney General, submitted this controversial search warrant in January 2023. Subsequently, in August 2023, Trump faced indictment in connection to his alleged attempts to challenge the 2020 election.
Elon Musk emerged as a vocal opponent of Smith’s search warrant, arguing that it violated fundamental rights protected by the First Amendment and the Stored Communications Act. However, despite Musk’s opposition, a judge ruled against him, compelling disclosure of the requested information. Musk incurred a fine of $350,000 for his resistance to comply with the court’s orders.
This saga paints a stark image: Trump’s earlier warning, “They’re not after me. They’re after you. I’m just standing in the way,” appears eerily prophetic as Smith’s investigation encroaches on the personal digital footprint of countless individuals, invoking concerns of government overreach and potential infringement of civil liberties.
