‘Blatant Censorship’: WND Reporter Fires Back After Twitter Suspends Her Outlet For Seth Rich Story

Published

on

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.

“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.”

World Net Daily reports:

“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.'”

Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex

Well this isn’t a good look.

Published

John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.

Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.

Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”

@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.

The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”

Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”

What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.

And there could be much more where that came from…

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.
