Citizen journalist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released a damning undercover video today in which a top Twitter employee reveals further proof of the company’s bias against conservatives.
In the bombshell video, Clay Haynes, a Senior Network Security Engineer at Twitter who describes his job as “the bouncer of the network,” makes shocking admissions about the company’s anti-conservative bias and its willingness to target conservatives like President Trump:
So @jack do you have any response to this video of your engineer @dark_15 admitting that @Twitter will offer all of @realDonaldTrump's tweets and private DMs "even the ones he's deleted" to @TheJusticeDept? pic.twitter.com/MoaZ9zdDnN

In reference to President Trump’s popular, politically revolutionary Twitter account, Haynes said “even though he is making a complete ass of himself and of the country, we have to let those tweets up,” because other Twitter employees deemed the tweets to be “newsworthy.”
However, Haynes bragged that “the other thing too is that we’re more than helping… we’re more than happy to help the Department of Justice in their little investigation.”
When prompted on how the social media giant is helping the DOJ in its “little investigation,” Haynes told the Project Veritas journalist that Twitter is “giving them every single tweet that he’s posted, even the ones he’s deleted.”
Haynes then dropped the bombshell that Twitter is also providing the Justice Department “any direct messages, any mentions” as well, which appears to be a gross violation of Twitter users’ privacy.
In November, a rogue Twitter contractor named Bahtiyar Duysak deactivated President Trump’s Twitter account for eleven minutes before the Silicon Valley giant restored it. The month before, Twitter censored Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn’s Senate campaign announcement video because she said she “stopped the sale of baby body parts” as a member of the United States House.
GotNews Editor-in-Chief Charles C. Johnson documented Twitter’s pattern of targeting conservatives with content censorship, suspensions, and permanent bans in the landmark free speech lawsuit he filed against the company on Monday. Johnson’s lawsuit was spurred in part by leaked internal Twitter emails – which were published in a BuzzFeed piece last month – confirming that his own account was banned for political reasons.
Johnson has also launched a crowdfunding campaign for his lawsuit (which you can contribute to here), which describes the case as “your last chance to stop Twitter’s management from stealing the next election by stopping them in court.”
