[Trailer] Unsealed Docs Reveal How Prosecutor Got Trump's Location Data and Deleted Messages

According to a recently unsealed court document, Jack Smith—the special counsel leading the charge in both of the federal cases against former President Donald Trump—has been forcing Twitter to hand over a treasure trove of data on President Trump’s account in relation to the Jan. 6 indictment. The type of data that was handed over is staggering—things such as President Trump’s direct messages, deleted messages, posts that were drafted but never made public, and even the location information of all users who posted to the account. Mr. Smith and his team of federal prosecutors filed a warrant against Twitter, telling it to hand over all of President Trump’s personal data. That warrant was signed off by U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell. Alongside the warrant, the judge also issued a non-disclosure order—meaning that Twitter was to hand over all of this data, without informing President Trump. However, Twitter challenged both the warrant and the associated non-disclosure order, saying that the warrant was based on insufficient evidence and that the gag order stifled their constitutional rights to free speech. But, not only did Judge Howell uphold both of the orders, she also sanctioned Twitter for not providing the data in a timely manner. 🍿 Jan 6 Tapes: https://ept.ms/3E0Gw7X Episode Resources: 🔵 Unsealed Docs: https://ept.ms/47CNqO4 https://ept.ms/3qCpPN1 🔵 Full Analysis: https://ept.ms/47yd0Ux
