According to a government transparency suit, millions of users who interacted with former President Donald Trump’s ‘X’ account, formerly known as ‘Twitter,’ should pay close attention.
Special Counsel for the Department of Justice, Jack Smith, has been sticking his nose where it does not belong.
Now, Jack Smith’s warrant may cause a nightmare for Trump supporters.
Jack Smith’s warrant from January of 2023 was a lot more in-depth and powerful than Americans originally believed.
Many thought the search warrant was created to dig up dirt on Trump and Trump alone, but it looks like Trump is not the only one who may be trying to be held accountable for his online actions.
The court-authorized search warrant gave Jack Smith the power to demand the names of the owners of any accounts that interacted with former President Donald Trump.
From favorites to retweets, if you interacted with the former President of the United States’ account, Jack Smith has your information on a list.
This extremely specific warrant request bodes a critical question: What is Jack Smith planning to do with this information?
Also, could Trump supporters possibly be implicated for a favorite or retweet?
The tech company now known as ‘X,’ attempted to sound the alarm bell on what a warrant of this gravity could mean.
X is not the only one concerned about this information being revealed; editor-in-chief at the Federalist, Mollie Hemingway, referred to Smith’s warrant as a “dystopic nightmare.”
“Pro-DOJ crowd should be far less concerned tonight about the renewed interest and more concerned by the government overreach,” Hemingway wrote.
Will Americans who interacted with Donald Trump’s account be held accountable? What happened to freedom of speech?
Americans as a whole, whether they support the former President Donald Trump or not, should be extremely bothered by this serious potential constitutional rights violation.
We live in America where we have been blessed with the freedom to express our beliefs, our views, and ultimately, ourselves.
You don't get to pick and choose who gets to practice that right, just because you don't agree with the message they are standing behind.
What do you think of Jack Smith's warrant? Should this even have been authorized the first place?
