The long-running, well-established alternative news outlet World Net Daily was suspended by Twitter Wednesday for reporting a story implicating former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile in an alleged coverup of the Seth Rich murder.
WND reporters Alicia Powe and Liz Crokin published a story this week entitled “Bombshell: Donna Brazile Warned Off Private Eye on Seth Rich Murder.”
The story quoted private investigator Rod Wheeler, who said that Brazile called the police to ask why Wheeler was “snooping” into the case.
Twitter punished WND, specifically for the Brazile story, suspending its account. Twitter’s message to WND informing the publication of the suspension included a WND tweet linking to Powe and Crokin’s story.
Now, Powe is firing back.
“This is blatant censorship from the left,” Powe told Big League Politics. “This doesn’t make allegations against Donna Brazile any less credible. Based on anonymous sources? My source wasn’t anonymous. He’s a reputable private investigator. The Rich family actually commended his work, until the Democratic political crisis consultant Brad Bauman intervened and then they backtracked on their praise of Detective Wheeler. The story is legitimate, and I don’t see why we need to be censored.”
“They’re the ones making unsubstantiated claims,” Powe said of the liberal media.
“If we stay on top of it, we can get to the bottom of it. There is no evidence to suggest that this was a robbery,” Powe continued. “Why was the police department told to stand down, according to (investigative financier) Jack Burkman? The head of his investigation team is stunned and outraged by the police department’s lack of assertiveness in investigating the case. There’s a lot to keep uncovering.”
“On Wednesday, Twitter sent a message instructing WND to delete the tweet. “If you feel that your account has been locked in error, you can appeal by contacting our support team here,” Twitter said….
Another message stated: “We’ve temporarily limited some of your account features.”
“What happened? We have determined that you have violated the Twitter Rules, so we’ve temporarily limited some of your account features. While in this state, you can still browse Twitter, but you’re limited to only sending Direct Messages to your followers – no tweets, retweets, or likes. Your account will be restored to full functionality in: 11 hours and 10 minutes.”
Twitter declined to comment when asked by a WND reporter, except to ask which account was being referenced.
A WND company official confirmed the tweet was deleted per the company’s instructions.
The news story was about a private detective’s revelation that former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile was the high-ranking DNC representative who allegedly called police and the Rich family and demanded to know why a private investigator was “snooping” into the case.
The detective, Rod Wheeler, told WND: “The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile. Why shouldn’t I reveal who it was?”
Brazile, who was also a CNN contributor and a Hillary for America donor at the time, was caught providing Clinton with questions that would later be asked of Clinton at a televised CNN town hall. In an interview with Fox News before the election, Brazile denied leaking the questions to Clinton. But in a March 17, 2017, column for Time magazine, she finally admitted doing so, saying it was a “mistake I will forever regret.'”
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
