House Democrat Threatens to Arrest Journalist who Exposed the Government’s Corruption

The Democrats have not exactly been ecstatic about the “Twitter Files” and the damming revelations that came out of them, so now they’re threatening to ARREST the journalists who took part in exposing what their party did to the American people,

Independent Journalist Matt Taibbi was the victim of this when Virgin Islands Democrat Rep. Stacey Plaskett menacingly suggested he could go to prison for years for writing about the Twitter Files on his Substack. Plaskett threatened Taibbi with up to five years behind bars, falsely claiming that he lied under oath in his congressional testimony.

In a letter Plaskett claimed that Taibbi “intentionally” provided false information during his testimony while laying out very clearly where such actions could land him. “Under the federal perjury statute, 18 U.S.C. § 1621, providing false information is punishable by up to five years imprisonment,” Plaskett said.

 

The Democrats have grown increasingly hostile towards journalists who don’t carry water for them. Anyone who DARES to expose what’s actually happening in the Democrat corrupted federal government is public enemy number one!

Press freedom organizations slammed the threat as a “disturbing intimidation tactic.”

“It’s disturbing that a member of Congress would attempt to threaten a journalist with imprisonment for summarizing his reporting during a congressional hearing,” said Seth Stern, the director of advocacy with the Freedom of the Press Foundation, “It seems apparent that she had no good faith basis to threaten a perjury prosecution and that the threat is an intimidation tactic.”

“Whatever one may think of Taibbi or his reporting on the Twitter files, baselessly threatening to imprison journalists is reprehensible,” noted Stern.

For Taibbi, he’s no stranger to this. In fact, it’s not even the first time he’s bumped heads with Rep. Plaskett.

Back in March she tried to diminish his credibility by referring to him as a “so-called journalist.”

Plaskett also accused Taibbi of misleading the public and members of Congress with reporting that was “rife with numerous other false and misleading claims.”

Other House Dems have made similar claims attacking Taibbi. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tweeted that the entire oversight hearing about DHS influence into social media “was based on these errors,” citing MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan. The lawmaker called the hearing a waste of “tons of public time and dollars.”

Of course that’s laughable because the theatrical J6 committee wasting more than $100 million in taxpayer money didn’t seem to be a “waste” by her standards.

And this anti-journalist stance spreads far beyond just the House Dems. You may recall that the federal government demanded a complete list of every journalist who had access to the Twitter files – leading many to speculate the Biden regime had something up its sleeve to SILENCE these reporters.

And then let’s not forget the weaponized IRS who deployed an agent to the home of Matt Taibbi RIGHT BEFORE he was set to testify hoping to intimidate him into keeping his mouth shut!

  1. Fantastic work, Mike. Since I currently make more than $36,000 each month from just one simple web business, I commend your efforts. Despite the fact that these are the most ba-05 basic internet operations occupations, you may start making a reliable online income with as little as $29,000.

    1. Every time Plaskett and his band of idiots open their mouths all the accomplish is verifying that if NOT for DOUBLE STANDARDS……Dimocrats would have NO STANDARDS AT ALL.

  2. And how many Democrats have we watched lie under oath for the last seven years in Congress, what about the lies a Democrat communist committee had told and withheld video evidence to their lies, This Democrat witch better watch it because this standard she wants can be applied and should be applied for all the lies her and her party have said and done. Their day is coming real soon.

    1. Not to mention she could be facing charges of witness tampering. They seem to think the laws do not apply to EVERYONE (including them!)

    2. This is almost the same way the British did , people are getting fed up with political gangsters.They need to go to jail.

    3. Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, any Clinton, any Biden, and on and on. They all make a career out of lying, stealing and anything else crooked that will get them Money.

  3. Stacey Plaskett Is not even a representative. She is a non-voting delegate from a “territory” with honorary membership. Kind of like an honorary doctorate. Sounds important but means absolutely nothing. She has no standing and should just shut the hell up since she could never have anything important to add to the conversation.

    1. Poor Stacey ..trying to look like her opinions matter……in a most obnoxious way.
      An education at Choat and other “ fancy educational institutions” does not make this FAUX political mouthpiece anything but your TYPICAL angry black woman. She is grossly unqualified to “spar verbally” with Taibbi.

  4. This is very simple Our grandfather’s Democratic Party has long since fallen into the Abyss. Today’s Democratic party Despises the Constitution as it hogties them in many ways, and they only wrap themselves in it if it will help them forward their Marxist Agenda. The DemonHACK party also vehemently despises the 1st Amendment, and as we can see, as long as they are in control they will do whatever they feel is required to forward their collective destruction of America, and if threatening Journalists will get the job done they will use the Legal double standard to intimidate and cajole anyone that stands in their way. 1st Amendment be Damned.

    1. Sounds like the Soviet Union under Stalin, Germany under Hitler, Cuba under Castro & China under Mao & currently, Xi! A casting call of murderers. Currently, “chinese nationals” coming thru border. Why? Disgruntled citizens never leave China- they are murdered. Only “good comrades” leave to re educate the west. Check out Gordon Chang articles. Very enlightening!

  5. Why are politicians not removed from office for not holding to their oath? We shouldn’t have to wait to vote them out. If I fail to do my job I’m fired on the spot, or at least have to arbitrate through the union.

    1. You supplied the thoughts of the majority of CITIZENS in this country.DC is so full of political criminals and unethical political appointees that they preside over themselves. It’s no wonder they let Biden, the president break our laws. Shamefull!

  6. “Under the federal perjury statute, 18 U.S.C. § 1621, providing false information is punishable by up to five years imprisonment,” Plaskett said.

    Well now, seems there are a number of high ranking officials in the current administration that must be held to the consequences of the statute they broke. Remember, no one is above the law. AG Merrick being the latest proven guilty of perjury.
