Special Counsel has Trump’s Twitter Direct Messages, Including Deleted and Unsent Drafts

Special Counsel has Trump’s Twitter Direct Messages, Including Deleted and Unsent Drafts


The latest unsealed court filings shows that special counsel Jack Smith has all of President Donald Trump’s direct messages, including the deleted and unsent ones.

We learned last week that the feds served Twitter with a warrant for Trump’s account. The company resisted. The court then fined the platform $350,000 and held it in contempt.

The judge suspected Twitter wanted to delay the handover because CEO Elon Musk wanted “to cozy up” to Trump.

I rolled my eyes.

The government demanded everything. It seemed that no one in the room knew anything about the old fleets. Remember those? Twitter tried to copy Facebook/Instagram stories.

How can I take any of them seriously if they have no idea what they’re even asking for?

The court also told Twitter to include “searches on the platform surrounding the 2020 election, devices used to log into the account, IP addresses used to log into the account and a list of associated accounts.”

Look, he’s guilty. Just fry him. We don’t need no stinkin’ trials. This is the New World Order, don’t you know? Guilty until proven guilty.

We’re about to go over the edge. The result will not be pretty, nor painless.

    This has turned into the complete 💩 show I predicted–and it has just started. It will only get worse.

      As a real Conservative, this is why I didn’t want this juvenile ignoramus game show host with the “Kick Me” sign on his back from for 7+ years. I left the Republican Party. I even voted for him the second time (undervoted him in 2016) because I knew what he didn’t: the election was rigged, I just didn’t know which states. He surfed a bit on Ryan’s tax cut and McConnell’s judges until he really had to lead in 2020, and imploded along with his killer non-vaccine. He got rolled by The Swamp, GOP, Dems, China, Fauci, Media, and his own effin’ DOJ. He had a national election stolen right under his nose after losing the House and Senate. How much losing can you guys take?! Please realize, 2016 was a fluke due to the most hated corruptocrat in US history quit campaigning then the Comey letter. Now yinz are going to try and elect him again while hoping for another fluke as a strategy, only this time the end of the country is nigh.

    unfortunately, believe you are correct

Absolute banana fucking republic.

Now what I want to know is when Biden’s DoJ is coming down on every Democrat politician that actually incited riots right through 2020? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?

Mao and Stalin would be proud of the vile and totalitarian Dumb-o-crats.

    And the Never Trumpers who are willing accomplices.

      chrisboltssr in reply to wendybar. | August 16, 2023 at 9:56 am

      This all day. I want people to remember that it wasn’t Democrats who started investigating Trump, it was sorry ass Republicans who did. The Mueller Investigation was launched by the McConnell/Ryan led Congress. And many NeverTrumpers supported that sorry investigation.

      The NeverTrumpers and Republicans are as culpable for our current sorry state as the Leftists are.

      And here lies the problem… They’re all in one club, and as George Carlin once said, “We aren’t in it”.

    Well, the people running FJB are self-admitted devotees of Mao. And obviously these days, Josef Mengele.

Unsent drafts etc. are things that are badly worded, not things you changed your mind about. More likely than usual to be misinterpreted, in other words.

    alien in reply to rhhardin. | August 16, 2023 at 10:15 am

    Hence the “justification” to obtain these items.

    Imagine how “useful” they’ll be — but not as evidence,

    Never forget. There is no such thing as the cloud, there’s only somebody else’s computer.
    How much do you trust putting information that makes you vulnerable on somebody else’s computer?

Hey, how about we gt the texts and unsent drafts etc. of Hunter Biden? Naaaahhhhh!

    Martin in reply to MAJack. | August 16, 2023 at 10:48 am

    Why would you want those? Hunter is not orange or bad or a man. A man would never do the things the Hunter has done. He is a Peter Pan that never grew up to be a man.

    Please include all Clinton’s, Obama’s, Biden’s, Pelosi’s dirty laundry.

Elon should publicly release every deleted and unsent direct message for every democrat officeholder or bureaucrat.

Have a red county DA allege a conspiracy by all democrats, and have a friendly judge approve the warrant, and then leak it to newsmax.

Thoughtcrimes it is! The order of the day.

The deleted and unsent drafts will provide scholarly insight into the creative and genius thought processes of Donald Trump’s digital missives.

Ask a never Trumper if they want to live in a country where this level/type of lawfare is successful. Pandora’s box has been opened, the contents have been spilled, and the whole place reeks.

    thalesofmiletus in reply to amwick. | August 16, 2023 at 12:29 pm

    They’re myopic, and they don’t care. They will roll over and urinate themselves if Democrats give so much as a scornful glance.

Is anyone ever going to take these threats to liberty seriously? Or are we content to let this country die and then build a top its carcass?

    thalesofmiletus in reply to SeymourButz. | August 16, 2023 at 12:31 pm

    There is no indication that the ruin is preventable. Future generations will need to rebuild this society. All we can do is prepare our children, particularly our sons and grandsons, for the task.

On a side note, does anyone know if there’s a way to disable the direct message feature on Twitter? I think it can be disabled on Instagram. But, I haven’t been able to find a way on Twitter…which seems odd.

    I couldn’t find it either. I was looking for it because I have an annoying bar across the bottom of my screen that I wanted to go away. If anyone knows how to disable it, I’d be interested in knowing, too.

      Solution: quit Twitter.

        I did not long after they banned Trump, but when Musk bought it, I went back. It’s still not great (conservatives are definitely still being shadowbanned and throttled), but it does help me with my work (especially now that Musk has made it so you can’t see anything unless you have an account). I would not have it if I didn’t use it for work, though.

          He backed off on the initial Sherman’s March version where you couldn’t see ANYTHING unless you had an account. Now you can follow a direct link to a single tweet the media quotes, but can’t see any of the threads it’s involved in.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to TargaGTS. | August 16, 2023 at 2:04 pm

    People should probably abandon Twitter. It is still being operated to protect low life. Not as biased as pre Musk, but still wanting.

I predict the DimBulb D/A will be demanding copies of Trump’s “Permanent Record ” any day now. We were all warned that one day our playground scuffles and classroom antics would come back to haunt us.

The Thought Police are in on the case too.
Guess I should watch out typing comments then not sending them.


Washington, DC, US District Judge Beryl Howell laid into the billionaire and lawyers for the social media company, now known as X, during a Feb. 7 hearing after the requests made by special counsel Jack Smith as part of his investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot were denied.

“Is it because the CEO wants to cozy up with the former president, and that’s why you are here?” Howell pressed Twitter lawyer George Varghese.

“No, Your Honor. It’s whether or not they are facially valid,” the attorney replied.

At another point in the hearing, the judge also suggested Twitter was acting in Trump’s interest to make up for having kicked the 45th president off the platform following the riot.

US District Judge Beryl Howell in a February hearing laid into the CEO and lawyers for the social media company, now known as X.

“Is this to make Donald Trump feel like he is a particularly welcomed, new, renewed user of Twitter here?” Howell asked.

“Twitter has no interest other than litigating its constitutional rights, Your Honor,” Varghese said.

Twitter lawyers raised concerns that turning over Trump’s direct messages could violate executive privilege and waved off arguments from prosecutors that the search was needed because the former president represented a flight risk.

US District Judge Beryl Howell is definitely NOT the brightest bulb in the package

    Paging Judge Roland Freisler it appears that Judge Beryl Howell has taken up your legacy.

    For those not familiar Judge Freisler goggle some of his courtroom diatribes. They are in German but you will get the idea.

    The way that NY Post article is written, it sounds like the judge is arguing in favor of the search warrant, instead of acting as a neutral arbiter. Rather than requiring evidence from the government that the warrant should be issued, he seems to be demanding evidence from Twitter/X that it shouldn’t.

    If that’s the case, what would it take for Twitter/X to get that judge recused and the warrant quashed?

“The government demanded everything. It seemed that no one in the room knew anything about the old fleets. Remember those?”
No. What the hell does this mean, is it a typo for tweets? I still wouldn’t understand the implication, but at least that would make lexical sense.

I would like to know on what evidence the warrant was issued. Typically, a warrant can only be issued after hearing testimony or evidence, and my guess is that one reason Twitter/X “resisted” is that they also wanted to know what evidence was presented that convinced the judge to sign the warrant, and may have been exploring the possibility of challenging its validity.

Also, I’d like to know what import his deleted and unsent drafts hold. To me, that seems too much like asking for a warrant for what someone was thinking but did NOT say out loud.

IOW, Orwellian thoughtcrime.

And that’s in addition to Twitter/X basically being served a warrant for someone else’s free speech, AND being ordered to provide all information on who searched for information on the 2020 election, from what device, when (all the records will be time-stamped), and from where (IP address ranges are roughly localized). What’s that all for, if not a witch hunt for doubters?

IOW, more thoughtcrime. And again, what testimony or evidence was presented to the court that could possibly justify this large a dragnet?

Does anyone else, particularly “Never Trumpers”, see even a slight Constitutional issue with this scenario? Or see how this could potentially become problematic for the rest of us in the near-ish future?

But the drafts were never public and were never seen. Is Trump being charged with thought crimes?
