From the tweet:
“...clear & present danger to the American people. ...”
IIRC “Clear and present danger” has a specific meaning.
Don't leave me hanging. Tell me!!!!! :)
Clear and present danger
If I understand correctly, this term was used in a SCOTUS case. It was used to describe when there can be limits placed on our First Amendment rights.
“The question in every case is whether the words used are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger that they will bring about the substantive evils that the United States Congress has a right to prevent. It is a question of proximity and degree. When a nation is at war, many things that might be said in time of peace are such a hindrance to its effort that their utterance will not be endured so long as men fight, and that no Court could regard them as protected by any constitutional right.”
My speculation: This might be a warning to the MSM. Or an indication that the law is going to be used to go after their lying propaganda.
