Trump’s New Spokesperson Is Spreading His Election Lies On Twitter For Him.
Trump has been banned on the platform since his attempt to overthrow American democracy on Jan. 6, but Twitter has taken no action against Liz Harrington. By @svdate
"Trump's new chief spokeswoman, Liz Harrington, has been a serial promoter of election lies" cnn.com/2021/06/18/pol…
Twitter gave "extremists the platform they needed to plan an attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, and the website, if it maintains its current approach, will likely enable politically motivated violence again in the future." $TWTR #ESG#BanLizHarringtonsplcenter.org/hatewatch/2021…
.@TwitterSafety banned Trump from Twitter because of risk of incitement violence. Why does Twitter allow Trump spokesperson Liz Harrington @realLizUSA to tweet for Trump? @CNN: "Trump's new chief spokeswoman, Liz Harrington, has been a serial promoter of election lies" $TWTR #ESG
'We Make Mistakes': Twitter's Embrace of the Extreme Far Right
Twitter gave far-right extremists the platform they needed to plan an attack on the Capitol on #Jan6, and, without changes, $TWTR will likely enable politically motivated violence again. #ESGsplcenter.org/hatewatch/2021…
IRS Director of Tax Exempt Orgs Stephen Martin denied right-wing Christians Engaged tax-exempt status, writing: "You engage in prohibited political campaign intervention." IRS Chief Charles Rettig, a Trump holdover, caved to GOP and reversed the decision. news.yahoo.com/top-republican…
IRS's Martin wrote in his decision to deny tax-exempt status: "freedom of speech, defense, and borders and immigration, U.S. and Israel relations... typically affiliated with the [Republican Party] and candidates. This disqualifies you from exemption under IRC Section 501(c)(3).”
2. @Poynter Institute, a global leader in #journalism, yesterday: "Bartiromo delivers another troubling interview with Donald Trump: Bartiromo’s transformation from once-respected journalist to full-blown Donald Trump sympathizer appears complete." poynter.org/newsletters/20…
3. NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen agreed with me, tweeting that he felt nauseated, as I do, by Bartiromo's seat on the NYU board. I attended NYU Stern School of Business many years ago.
Institutional investors in Twitter who think far-right extremism and domestic terrorism are bad for business should read this alarming analysis by @MichaelEHayden, then give Jack Dorsey a call. $TWTR #ESG

Twitter's largest institutional shareholders will need to decide whether far-right extremism and domestic terrorism are sound investments for their clients and stakeholders. $TWTR #ESG

Individuals that the FBI is investigating over their alleged role in attempting to overthrow the government are roaming free at CPAC at @HiltonAnatole in Dallas. A spokesperson for Hilton emailed me this statement last month about hosting CPAC. $HLT #ESG
I have reached out to @HiltonHotels and asked if the corporation would like to update its statement about hosting CPAC, and comment on Nick Fuentes' hate rant yesterday at entrance to @HiltonAnatole. $HLT #ESG
Nick Fuentes in front of CPAC at Hilton Anatole says he will later give a speech that is the most racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, Holocaust denying speech ever. @Hilton allows this rant on its property and @sheratonhotels will host Fuentes later.
I have reached out to @sheratonhotels (owned by @Marriott) to ask if the hotel will allow Nick Fuentes to give his hate speech at Sheraton, as he said he was planning. $MAR #ESG
Spokesperson from Hilton Anatole emailed me this statement last month about hosting CPAC.
On January 15, Sen. Ron Wyden sent a letter to IRS chief Charles Rettig, demanding investigation into tax-exempt groups involved in #Jan6 violence. Wyden told me in Jan that he will "keep pressing the IRS to investigate."
Wyden has not yet received a response from Rettig.
IRS chief Charles Rettig is a Trump admin holdover, hand-picked by the former president. Rettig's term expires November 2022. newrepublic.com/article/162203…
Roger Stone is throwing @AmyKremer's Women for America First under the bus.
Stone's associate Kristin Davis blames Women for America First in her July 2 article for right-wing propaganda outlet Gateway Pundit.
Stone is reportedly under federal investigation. (h/t @patriottakes)
Ali Alexander, founder of "Stop the Steal," and one of the masterminds of the #Jan6 "Save America" rally, defends Roger Stone, calling @AmyKremer's Women for America First an "astroturf group of grifters."
Charges may be near for Roger Stone over Jan. 6 Capitol riot, legal expert says
"Who am I to tell you how to cope when you're dealing with a pain or you're dealing with a struggle that you've never experienced before or that you never thought you'd have to deal with. Who am I to tell you how to cope? Who am I to tell you you're wrong for hurting?" #LetHerRun

NEW: Spokesperson for Hilton Anatole hotel emailed me this statement today in response to my inquiry about the hotel hosting @CPAC 2021 where Trump is scheduled to speak, July 9-11 at CPAC's "America UnCanceled" event.
Rep from Hilton has confirmed that Hilton Anatole is "managed by Hilton" (i.e., it is not an independently owned franchise). $HLT
In March, a @Hilton spokesperson emailed me this statement about the Hilton Orlando hosting a gathering of "far-right activists whose organizer spouted white nationalist rhetoric and defended the U.S. Capitol riot," as reported at the time by the @orlandosentinel

CPAC 2021 speaker lineup here, July 9-11 in Dallas. @Hilton is platforming Fascists for profit.
Amy Kremer's tax-exempt Women for America First was the permit-holder for Trump's #Jan6 pre-insurrection rally in DC. The group continues to hold events promoting the #BigLie that incited deadly violence at the Capitol.
