FBI Lawyer James Baker Wanted Trump’s Optimistic Tweet About Covid Deleted

Elon Musk on Monday released another Twitter files drop: How Twitter rigged the Covid debate:

– By censoring info that was true but inconvenient to US government policy
– By discrediting doctors and other experts who disagreed
– By suppressing ordinary users, including some sharing the CDC’s *own data*

Disgraced FBI lawyer turned Twitter lawyer James Baker wanted Trump’s optimistic tweet about Covid deleted.

Trump encouraged Americans not to be afraid of Covid after he recovered from the virus in early October 2020.

On October 5, 2020 Trump tweeted: “I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center at 6:30 PM. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”

James Baker ran to Yoel Roth and demanded to know why Trump’s tweet telling people, “Don’t be afraid of Covid” wasn’t a violation of Twitter’s Covid policy.

“In a surreal exchange, Jim Baker, at the time Twitter’s Deputy General Counsel, asks why telling people to not be afraid wasn’t a violation of Twitter’s Covid-19 misinformation policy.”

Yoel Roth had to explain to James Baker that optimism wasn’t misinformation.

Elon Musk earlier this month announced he fired Twitter’s Deputy General Counsel James Baker for censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story.

“In light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today” Elon Musk said.

James Baker also interfered in the 2016 election when he acted as a running dog for Hillary Clinton’s lawyer Michael Sussmann.
