Higgins said, “You, ladies and gentlemen, interfered with the 2020 election knowingly and willingly. That’s bad news. It’s going to get worse, because this is the investigation part. Later comes the arrest part. Your attorneys are familiar with that. Mr. Chairman, I’d like to spend five hours with these ladies and gentlemen on depositions that are yet to come.”
As Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) explained, the former Twitter employees were in a private company, and their actions were protected by the First Amendment. Twitter can decide what
content it publishes and which users it allows on its platform. The employees committed no crime. There will be no depositions or criminal trials.
Twitter did not rig the 2020 election. Twitter did not interfere in the 2020 election. Donald Trump called the Secretary of State of Georgia and asked him to find 12,000 votes for him. Trump is currently under investigation for election interference in Georgia.
