During the Trump impeachment proceedings, Democratic Congressman and Chair of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff talked a good game about “American values” and the like, but when he decided he didn’t like certain journalists and tried to get them banned from social media outlets, well, maybe that whole “freedom of the press” thing wasn’t quite so important after all. In the latest Twitter Files dump, journalist Matt Taibbi reveals the efforts Schiff made to silence journalists who were a bit too “oppositional.”
Guest host Aaron Maté and Taibbi discuss the journalists targeted by Schiff and how Twitter responded to the demands.

A congressmen should be upholding our constitution.

Until now i though that Matt Taibbi, was university professor look a like dude in his 50's
Land of the free my a55 😂, more of it is like land of where corruption is legal for the few elites 😂
ORWELL CITY 8.6.2021 DR.PIERRE GILBERT 1995
So the United States Gov, many different office holders and Agency heads were denying Citizens their 1st Amendment right to free speech! It doesn't matter what side of the aisle you are on, if you think this is ok, then you are CRAZY! Yet, no one is getting punished. This country as a working Republic with true legislative and agency accountability is OVER. The DREAM that was AMERICA IS DEAD!!!
The US govt has become the Catholic Church, totally corrupt, and kid touching, and lying to the flock.
Democrats are not liberals, they’re radical corporate statists…. 🥷
"drain the swamp" remember that? does anyone now believe they need a third non corporate funded party.
And nothing will come of any of these Twitter revelations. And in a month or maybe two no one will even remember it happened.
That this isn't a front page scandal says everything you need to know about the state of politics & MSM media in the US.
Schiff is everything you think he is. He's a piece of himself.
Adam Schiff Is that smell you close your nose to.
Adam Shitt should be court-marshaled and his bank acounts and wealth seized as a traitor to the country.
Schiff, what a liar and snake. Still next to zero coverage by so called MSM
This is all part of the Biden Administration to censor and ban journalists who don't fit their political narrative.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-N.Y.) voted to arm and fund N@zis in Ukraine.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-N.Y.) is a N@zi supporter.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-N.Y.) is as traitorous and Un-American as it gets.
Adam Shitf reminds me of a 10 yo boy running to his mommy and telling her a lie in order to get his little sister in trouble. He has the kind of beady eyed smirky face you just wanna slap. And tell him to “run along, now….and go suck on your binki “.
I get the same visceral feeling when I see Fauci’s face!!
I still remember when Rand Paul tried to have Abby Martin fired.
I love it when the legislative branch plays executive branch. Bills of attainder, anyone?
There is a way to stop this. STOP USING TWITTER. But our "journalists" might actually have to work. Who gives a crap about Twitter?
Dr Shiva accuses this matt guy of knowing about this 2 years ago, because of the discovery in his Massachusetts election lawsuit.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained Only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” — Josep Borrell
“They are incapable of common sense, They are incapable of logic; They believe Only in the pursuit of the American and Nato Singularity; the So-called American and European Exceptionalism, AKA the Rules-Based International Order must be perserved at all costs.” — Scott Ritter
“The worst part is that the Ukrainian People are being exploited by US in a proxy war against Russia. And I think proxy wars are fundamentally immoral. If you are not willing to fight the warrior yourself, what gives you the right morally to expect someone else to die in your cause?” — Douglas Macgregor.
"Foreign aid is taking money from the poor people of a rich country and giving it to the rich people of a poor country.” — Ron Paul
Why do I keep thinking that politicians using or attempting to use a third party to censor private citizens is illegal?
Oh yes, that thing we all learn in highschool civics. I just have to wonder why no one is being prosecuted for this, perhaps because everyone is doing it.
why does everything from Elevator gate to gamer gate to russia gate all either metoo's good natured nerds or jornos and pushes a strange sort of misandrist demolition man kind of agenda with Propaganda and manipulation tactics?
"We came, we saw, he died." — Hillary Clinton.
She was talking about the Death of the former Libyan president, Muammar Gaddafi, on October 20, 2011, with an interview on CBS News channel.
For those who have not recently brushed up on their Roman history, that is a reference to Julius Caesar's famous line "veni, vidi, vici," which means "I came, I saw, I conquered."
Jimmy you have a great show and you bring decent news with genuine humour and you seem to want to do good, however you've brought up my country's politicians a couple of times and I just wanted to update you on what Barrett, one you highlighted, is up to at the moment. He reckons, cos of Ukraine, that our government has the power to force people into housing Ukrainians in spare bedrooms. Just thought you'd like to know. There are no good politicians in Ireland, I'm being 100% serious. Please if you get a story about an Irish politician, look into them. I guarantee you they have an agenda. Hasn't been a good politician in Ireland for 40 years.
Happy January 6th. Let us not forget, Americans, wanting change in their country, were imprisoned for exercising their constitutional rights and entering their capital building that their taxes pay for, for these so called representatives to represent us. January 6th, let us not forget, it’s the day that we had our right as Americans taken from us in front of the entire world. This is not about trump or Biden. This is about the FBI and our “Justice Department” wanting to control Americans and who governs us. How was it said by an fbi agent? “We gotta storm the capital”, then they get the doors opened up to let them in. Seems pretty F’y to me
What date did that happen? 😳 when everything was amped up and Twitter got overwhelmed? Let me guess 2019 and 2020 lol but the exact date would reveal something
