Nunes Files MASSIVE Lawsuit Against Twitter for “Shadow Banning” Conservatives


Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) filed a massive lawsuit against Twitter yesterday, alleging the social media giant censors conservatives and ignores valid complaints of abusive behavior.

In the complaint, Nunes claims Twitter wanted to thwart his investigation into DOJ and FBI surveillance abuses and accuses the company of “knowingly hosting and monetizing content that is clearly abusive, hateful and defamatory – providing both a voice and financial incentive to the defamers – thereby facilitating defamation on its platform.”

Fox News reports:

The lawsuit alleged defamation, conspiracy, and negligence, as well as violations of the state’s prohibition against “insulting words” — effectively fighting words that tend towards “violence and breach of the peace.” The complaint sought not only damages, but also an injunction compelling Twitter to turn over the identities behind numerous accounts he said harassed and defamed him.

Nunes’ legal team wrote, “Twitter created and developed the content at issue in this case by transforming false accusations of criminal conduct, imputed wrongdoing, dishonesty and lack of integrity into a publicly available commodity used by unscrupulous political operatives and their donor/clients as a weapon. Twitter is ‘responsible’ for the development of offensive content on its platform because it in some way specifically encourages the development of what is offensive about the content.”

Last night on Fox News’ Hannity, Nunes said the lawsuit will be “the first of many.”

“This is part of the continuing Russia investigation. We’re not going to just let all these fake news stories that were written about this investigation, about this hoax — that were lies — we’re going to challenge every single one of them in court. We’re just starting with Twitter,” he said.

Conservative Iraq Vet Permanently Banned from Twitter: They’ll Come for You, Too

Iraq War veteran, former congressional candidate and conservative radio host Jesse Kelly is speaking out after Twitter permanently banned him on Sunday.

Speaking with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Monday night, Kelly was asked why Twitter had banned him.

“Nobody knows,” he replied.  “Twitter kicked me off the platform because I was a mainstream voice on the right that spoke the truth, Tucker and that’s all anybody knows. They’ve given me no explanation as they told Congress they would give explanations. All they sent was an email that said you are permanently banned and you can’t appeal it for repeated rules violations only I don’t violate their rules. I don’t cuss at people on there I don’t harass people on there…all of a sudden my account vanished like a Hillary Clinton email.”

He then issued a warning to Carlson, “They’ll come for you, too,” said Kelly.

In August, Kelly wrote an op-ed in the Federalist in which he warned conservatives that Twitter would begin banning them:

Many on the left and the right gave a loud cheer last week when Alex Jones was banished from Facebook. Twitter later suspended him. While it is not surprising to see the jackals on the left cheer at the burning of books, one would hope folks on the right would look in the mirror and realize their time is coming soon. The leftists will not stop (and did not stop) at nutty Alex Jones, because they do not think you are much different from him. You rightly think your belief in immigration enforcement is much different than his disgusting conspiracy theory about Sandy Hook. But you must understand the left thinks you are both equally vile. They just knew Jones was the weak member of the herd. They could pick him off as a test run. Next they’re coming for you.

In January, undercover investigative journalism outlet, Project Veritas revealed Twitter employees would engage in mass-banning of accounts that expressed interest in God, guns, America and Trump.

The employee told a Project Veritas undercover journalist, “Just go to a random [Trump] tweet and just look at the followers. They’ll all be like, guns, God, ‘Merica, and with the American flag and the cross. Like, who says that? Who talks like that? It’s for sure a bot.”

When asked if he could get rid of the accounts, he replied, “Yeah. You just delete them, but, like, the problem is there are hundreds of thousands of them, so you’ve got to, like, write algorithms that do it for you.”

Project Veritas’ investigation also revealed that Twitter employees admitted to “shadow banning” pro-Trump accounts, conservatives and “sh**ty people.”

House Republicans invited Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to speak to Congress in September after conservatives accused the company of censoring them. Dorsey pushed back on the claims and testified in his prepared remarks that “Twitter does not use political ideology to make any decisions, whether related to ranking content on our service or how we enforce our rules.”
