Jack Smith Subpoenaed Every American Who Retweeted Donald Trump’s Messages

There is no threat out there in the world that is more dangerous than the US federal government turning against its own citizens. Nothing. Not China. Not Russia. Not Iran.

History shows that when government corruption goes this far, the lives of the native citizens suddenly become meaningless to the people in charge. We are on that path right now. We’ve just learned that special counsel Jack Smith, who is running an out-of-control investigation to frame Donald Trump for January 6th, issued a blanket subpoena for millions of Twitter users who followed the president on that platform.

Heavily redacted search warrants and other documents from the investigation were just released on Monday. We already knew that Smith subpoenaed Twitter for President Trump’s DMs (direct messages) on the platform earlier this year. We laughed about it at the time, because President Trump never used the DM feature on Twitter to communicate with anyone.

 

Smith also subpoenaed Trump’s “advertising information, including advertising IDs, ad activity, and ad topic preferences,” and the IP addresses “used to create, login, and use the account.” He even tried to subpoena Trump’s Twitter password and account security settings. The warrant also demanded the president’s search history, along with the “content of all tweets created, drafted, favorited/liked, or retweeted” between October of 2021 and January of 2021.

What we didn’t know, however, was that Smith submitted a blanket subpoena to Twitter for information on tens of millions of Trump’s followers on Twitter. Donald Trump is one of the most popular Twitter users of all time, despite the fact that he barely even uses the platform anymore. He’s always on his own Truth Social platform these days, but he still has almost 90 million followers on Twitter.

Smith’s subpoena to Twitter asked for “all lists of Twitter users who have favorited or retweeted tweets posted by [Trump], as well as all tweets that include the username associated with [Trump’s account] (i.e., ‘mentions’ or ‘replies’).”

In other words, if you ever retweeted or liked one of President Trump’s tweets around the time of the 2020 election, then Jack Smith subpoenaed… YOU!

This is not the act of an innocent regime that has benevolent intentions toward you or your family. This is the act of a government that is making lists of people to kill later. Smith also delivered Twitter a non-disclosure demand, which instructed Twitter to not inform Donald Trump about the search.

Twitter’s lawyers initially objected to the non-disclosure order. That prompted Smith to falsely argue to the court that telling the former president about the search “would result in a statutorily cognizable harm,” because Trump is “a sophisticated actor with an expansive platform.”

To its credit, Twitter initially resisted turning over the names of the roughly 90 million people who followed and engaged with Trump’s tweets. They might have resisted just because Smith was demanding a staggering amount of data. When Twitter ultimate did comply, they were late in meeting Smith’s deadline for all of the data. Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice fined the company $350,000 for that.

Almost every word of the non-disclosure order is redacted, with the exception of this sentence from the US District Court:

“The [Non-Disclosure Order] was granted based on facts showing that notifying the former president would result in destruction of or tampering with evidence, intimidation of potential witnesses, or other serious jeopardy to an investigation or delaying of trial.”

The non-disclosure order was basically a gag order that prevented Twitter from alerting Trump or the public about Smith’s seizure of the data. Then, Smith obtained a gag order against President Trump, which prevents him from publicly talking about the case. None of this is on the up-and-up.

President Trump is one of the most famous people on the planet. He’s not some mob boss and he’s certainly not a flight risk. All of this imposed secrecy is not protecting anything except for the out-of-control prosecutors trying to bring Trump down on false charges.

Every American should be outraged that Jack Smith subpoenaed their Twitter data in his ongoing effort to stop Trump’s reelection campaign. Smith did not seize the data from your Twitter account because you were involved in a plot to overthrow the government on January 6th. He seized your data – and mine – because the government is making a list. Plan accordingly.
