Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Wednesday released a plan to fight digital disinformation, promising to push for new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties for disseminating false information related to U.S. elections.
Disinformation erodes our democracy, and Democrats must have a plan to address it, she details in a Medium post, proclaiming President Trump welcomed foreign interference in our elections, inviting interference from a host of countries that have an interest in the outcome, including Iran and China.
Hes currently facing impeachment for putting his own political interests over the national interests of the United States and there is every indication that if he is not removed from office, he will continue to do so,....
Warren contends that it is simply not enough to make vague statements condemning fraudulent attacks on opponents or efforts to suppress the vote, placing the burden to fight the spread of what she considers disinformation primarily on tech companies and the federal government.
Campaigns need to make clear that disinformation has no place in our campaigns, and that we will disavow supporters who embrace it and act quickly to stop its spread, she states in her plan.
Voter suppression efforts of any kind offend basic American values. In both the 2016 and 2018 elections, online disinformation sought to depress voter turnout by telling people they could vote via text, giving people the wrong date for election day, and more. I will push for new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties for knowingly disseminating this kind of information, which has the explicit purpose of undermining the basic right to vote.

How about a law making it illegal for politicians to lie?
So, everyone employed by the mainstream media will go to prison?
Ironic that in a screed against disinformation, Warren used so much of it herself.
Lizzy Warpath...she’s trying to fill Hillaryous Rotten Criminal’s bedroom slippers.
Uh, pale face lizzie and ‘spreading’ should NOT be used in the same sentence. Puleeeezzzze
In a country to our north...
CBS affiliates should’ve lost their FCC licenses after Dan Rather’s corrupt AF October Surprise airing forged National Guard Memos to try to steal the 2004 election.
Recall that it was the election eve release of Bush’s decades old DWI arrest that cost him the 0.51% margin in the popular vote victory.
So if someone seeking election claimed that they were a representative of a minority group they were not born into and presented positions which they wanted to advance as being the position of that minority they were never part of...we should lock them up.
Squaw Dumb as Stump.
Yup. Like all communists, she hates America, hates our constitution, hates freedom, hates individual rights.
It is almost like history repeating itself... The ghost of Felix Dzerzhinsky must be rolling in hell with laughter at seeing his tactics re-born...
Clearly the ballot box as an instrument of freedom is in mortal danger... The ammo box could be the only solution...
What was this Commie bi-tch’s response to the US media airing Iranian propaganda unfiltered.
We are hearing that the media went to press with Kobe’s death too soon and got some details wrong.
The US media was airing Iranian state propaganda that the US had 30 deaths from their missile attacks.
As Paul Krassner (sarcastically) said, F*** Communism.
She hates YOU and anyone who voted like you.
“How about a law making it illegal for politicians to lie?”
How about criminalizing all MSM news outlets, celebrities, etc. who spread b.s. and propaganda? Lock them all up.
Political speech is the exact speech the 1st Amendment was written to protect, which is why totalitarian redistributionists hate it.
