California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff contacted Twitter in November 2020 to ask the company to ban journalist Paul Sperry.
Schiff alleged that Sperry, an investigative reporter for Real Clear Investigations, had “repeatedly promoted false QAnon conspiracies and harassed [name redacted.]”
Matt Taibbi shared the ask that Schiff’s office sent to Twitter as part of the latest Twitter Files drop on Tuesday, which said that Schiff’s office claimed that there had been “harassment from QAnon conspiracists” against a Schiff staffer.
Twitter initially declined, though Sperry later was suspended from the platform.
