Skip to comments.Jack Smith wants to know if you ever 'liked' any tweet by Trump
Posted on 11/29/2023 6:39:09 AM PST by MtnClimber
If there's any doubt that the creatures currently persecuting President Trump through the courts are less after him than they are us, prosecutor Jack Smith provides the assurances.
Here's his latest stunt:
The Department of 'Justice' demanded that Twitter (X) hand over a list of users who engaged with Donald Trump's posts in relation to Jack Smith's J6 investigation.
It's as outrageous a demand as any ever seen in an outrageous case, with horrible implications for Constitutional protections and freedom itself in the U.S.
If this creep gets what he wants, that means everyone who ever clicked "like" on a tweet by President Trump during his years in office now has become a legal target, a dossier, a part of some database, easily searched for easy pinning for whatever the plug-in-the-crime this Vishinsky-wannabe can come up with. U.S. citizens will have no legal protections.
This sounds so Soviet it can't be real. But of course, it is, and it tells us a lot about the low quality of Smith's case and what it's about.
After all, a "like" is no proof of liking anything -- many people click 'like' idly without too much thought or else use the 'like' button to be able to come back to the tweet for whatever reason, a easy bookmark of sorts, a quick substitute for the more cumbersome, multi-click bookmark function on the platform. Maybe they 'like' the negative comments -- it simply offers no proof that they liked the tweet or agreed with it.

They are after you. Trump is just in the way.
Uh, oh. I’m in trouble
Jack Smith - totalitarian bully - high level thug...an embarrassment to a free people in a first world democracy.
Pretty sure this is what got bunches of people banned on Twitter when they banned the POTUS
You have to know who goes to the reeducation camps.
The Speaker of the House could end all these lawfare acts against Trump if he wanted to, it just takes courage and integrity sprinkled with character.
TITLE 2—THE CONGRESS
CHAPTER 6—CONGRESSIONAL AND COMMITTEE PROCEDURE; INVESTIGATIONS
Sec. 193. Privilege of witnesses
No witness is privileged to refuse to testify to any fact, or to produce any paper, respecting which he shall be examined by either House of Congress, or by any joint committee established by a joint or concurrent resolution of the two Houses of Congress, or by any committee of either House, upon the ground that his testimony to such fact or his production of such paper may tend to disgrace him or otherwise render him infamous.”
Simply look up Hinds Precedents, especially chapters 53 and 51, and Cannon’s Precedents, especially chapters 184-185. You’ll find numerous detailed cases of Congress asserting its power, arresting people, holding them until they agreed to answer questions, and then releasing them. Some of these people did not refuse to appear, but simply failed to satisfactorily answer questions.
Congress has the authority to arrest and imprison those found in Contempt. The power extends throughout the United States and is an inherent power (does not depend upon legislated act)
If found in Contempt the person can be arrested under a warrant of the Speaker of the House of Representatives or President of the Senate, by the respective Sergeant at Arms.
Statutory criminal contempt is an alternative to inherent contempt.
Under the inherent contempt power Congress may imprison a person for a specific period of time or an indefinite period of time, except a person imprisoned by the House of Representatives may not be imprisoned beyond adjournment of a session of Congress.
Imprisonment may be coercive or punitive.

In 1857, a New York Times reporter refused to say which members of Congress had asked him to get them bribes (protecting his “sources” just as various Judith Millers today protect the people who feed them proven lies that costs thousands of lives), so Congress locked him up until he answered and then banned him from Congress.
In 1924 an oil executive appeared but refused to answer certain questions, so the Senate held — literally held — him in contempt. Senator Thomas Walsh of Montana argued that this question of contempt was of the gravest importance, and that it involved “the very life of the effective existence of the House of Representatives of the United States and of the Senate of the United States.” The matter was taken to court, and the witness fined and imprisoned.
And why would he want to know that? So he and ilk can persecute maga supporters? Doesn’t sound very “democratic” of them now does it? Sounds more like the third Reich
I liked them all. Trump rules! Come and get me, you schmuck.
Advantages of not being on social media.......
Probably so he can send the names to his pals over at the IRS.
If you did, will you be identified, incarcerated, and shipped off to the gulag?
What is the purpose of the Democrat Party?
Is it to gather together people so that a search can be made of the members to find the person who is the best fit for a government job? The best person being that person who can get the most effective and efficient use out of every hard earned tax dollar.
Or is the purpose of the Democrat Party something else?
Can the Democrat Party even be called a political party?
Sounds more like The Man in the High Castle.
Remember when the media was fawning over Jack Smith because he went to Subway and got a Subway sandwich? Supposedly him going to Subway was sending a message of some sort to Trump?
I never understood that particular meme.
I don’t tweet, but I do have a middle finger for you Jack, in fact I have 2.
I think the real reason communists love cuputer voting machines is so they can suck up everyone’s data and who they voted for. It puts a target on every American’s back. We need to get back to paper they if want to spy on us they will have to read each vote by hand.
Joe would NOT be running again NOR WOULD HIS PARTY ALLOW HIM TO RUN had there'd not already been GUARANTEES THAT THEY'D STEAL IT FOR HIM AGAIN.
The big 2024 STEAL ensures an Obama FOURTH TERM. Permanent banana republic DICTATOR OBAMA via his brain dead proxy puppet Biden.
