How Twitter Blacklisted Conservative Accounts
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet

Spencer caught the first trove of the ‘Twitter files,’ which detailed the protocols the social media giant took to censor the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, the real October Surprise of the 2020 election, which could have impacted the result if the media did their jobs. Instead, they wanted to win an election, dump Trump, and would intentionally not inform voters of the alleged corruption that permeated the Biden family.

It was later revealed that some of the people reviewing the site’s dirty laundry, part of Elon Musk’s moves towards making the company more transparent, were former FBI officials. James Baker, Twitter’s deputy legal counsel, who had served as general counsel for the bureau from 2014-2018, was one of those people. When his role was discovered, Musk quickly fired him on Tuesday. As someone who reviewed the files, there’s ample suspicion that he deep-sixed items that put Twitter, the FBI, or both in a negative light. Read more and see tweets here.

Kyrsten Sinema Has Left the Democratic Party

Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema left the Democratic Party to become an independent, the lawmaker told CNN.

In an interview with host Jake Tapper, she explained why the decision makes the most sense.

“I’ve never fit neatly into any party box. I’ve never really tried. I don’t want to,” she said. “Removing myself from the partisan structure – not only is it true to who I am and how I operate, I also think it’ll provide a place of belonging for many folks across the state and the country, who also are tired of the partisanship.”

Sinema will become the third independent in the upper chamber, joining Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Angus King of Maine, both of whom caucus with Democrats.
