Adam Schiff might be in a lot of trouble in the very near future.
A well known journalist is claiming that Schiff abused his power to get him banned from Twitter over a petty personal vendetta.
This is coming to light just as the Republicans are taking control of the House.
Paul Sperry is the journalist in question.
He writes at the New York Post:
How Democrat Adam Schiff abused his power to demand I be kicked off Twitter simply due to a personal vendetta
Back from holiday vacation, I found an interesting email waiting for me in my inbox from Matt Taibbi, the independent journo Elon Musk tasked with reviewing and releasing internal Twitter documents about decisions to censor content and ban users from the platform.
“Paul,” Taibbi wrote, “just found a crazy email on Twitter — did you know Adam Schiff’s staff . . . asked Twitter to have you banned?”
I was gobsmacked. This would explain why Twitter could never give me a reason for suspending my account, even though I had broken none of its rules.
Schiff, the powerful Democratic chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, made his “request” to ban me through his staff in a November 2020 memo to Twitter. Three months later, in early February 2021, I was kicked off the platform.
Why would a congressional leader sworn to protect the Constitution and First Amendment want to muzzle a veteran journalist? Like authoritarians everywhere, Schiff did not like critical reporting. The man who vowed to “protect our Democracy” from Donald Trump wanted to censor a free press.
Adam Schiff deserves to be investigated and maybe even prosecuted over this.
Corrupt Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff sought to have @Twitter censor journalist Paul Sperry and countless other Americans who dared to dispute and resist his coup/impeachment attack on @RealDonaldTrump. No wonder Schiff threatened /attacked @ElonMusk on the @Twitter Files! https://t.co/tq0mkmCvbm

You know what they say about payback.
