Highlights fro #Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing on foreign interference via social media platforms:
"Election interference from abroad represents an intolerable assault on the democratic foundation this republic was built on" per @SenatorBurr
"It's also important that the American people know that these activities neither began nor ended with the 2016 elections" per @SenatorBurr "Foreign actors continue an aggressive and pervasive influence campaign against the #UnitedStatesofAmerica"
«The extradition of the publisher—the maniacal goal of the #US government—would set a legal precedent that would criminalize any journalistic oversight or investigation of the corporate state. It would turn leaks and #whistleblowing into treason» #FreeAssange

Ive never mentioned this on #Twitter before but I did, in fact, hunt fugitives for 7 years during the 90s. If you think for 2 seconds you are going to intimidate me online or IRL, you are very mistaken.
If you approach me IRL, you won't be the first, and I'm still here.
Our current online climate of doxing and death threats and political assassination is over the fucking top.
1. I am not afraid of standing up for what I believe Period. 2. I will not be intimidated by online or IRL #Bullying 3. I am not afraid of my death, or yours.
