Top-ranking Democrats in the Senate and House are asking Twitter and Facebook to launch investigations of possible Russian-linked accounts, bots pushing for the release of a controversial congressional memo.
The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff(Calif.), and the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), sent a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey asking that they “provide a public report to Congress and the American public by January 26” on the matter.
Facebook and Twitter have confirmed receipt of the letter.
Trump supporters initiated a #ReleaseTheMemo campaign after Republican Reps came forward demanding the document be released to the American public.
Investigative journalist Sara Carter said the FISA memo is so damning that it could end the Mueller investigation.
The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff (D-CA) is in full blown panic mode as the release of the FISA memo looms.
Rep. Schiff is in the middle of the rot as a ranking House committee member. He has passionately worked to block Chairman Nunes from revealing the illegal unmasking and FISA abuse that took place during the 2016 presidential election.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) are now urging Twitter and Facebook to conduct a thorough forensic examination into the #ReleaseTheMemo campaign as ‘potentially an ongoing attack by Kremlin-linked social media actors’ also referred to as “Russian bots”.
This is peak desperation (and creepy).
dam Schiff and the Democrats do not want this 4 page FISA memo to be released to the public.
Schiff previously blasted the FISA memo in a statement to CNN:
[the memo is] “profoundly misleading set of talking points drafted by Republican staff attacking the FBI and its handling of the investigation.”
He also implied Americans are too stupid to understand the contents of the memo.
The two high ranking California Democrats sent a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg urging they investigate the social media accounts. WOW.
ABC News reported, “NEW: Sen. Feinstein, Rep. Schiff urge Facebook and Twitter to investigate the involvement of Russian bots in pushing “Release the Memo” campaign: “If these reports are accurate, we are witnessing an ongoing attack by the Russian government through Kremlin-linked social media actors.”
Both Schiff and Feinstein complain about the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag being in the top social media trends and claim it can’t possibly be concerned Americans; they are Russian bots.
The letter goes on to say these tweets are interfering with Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation because they are ‘manipulating’ public opinion.
The letter actually calls the campaign a “Russian effort” even though they cite an obscure ‘report’ as proof the tweets are coming from Russians.
High ranking Democrat’s are not only actively working to silence Americans who use social media, they are demanding a “forensic examination” because users posted tweets they don’t like.
