Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe was banned on Thursday after allegedly using “fake accounts.”
The ban came at a peculiar time. Project Veritas had just released footage of CNN’s technical director Charles Chester admitting that it purposely ran negative coverage of former President Donald Trump in order to convince viewers to vote against him. Chester also said that CNN’s coverage is designed to “help” Black Lives Matter.
“As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts,'” said a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News when reached out about O’Keefe’s ban.
O’Keefe denied these allegations, telling Fox News that he plans on suing Twitter for defamation.
“In case you haven’t figured out how it works by now… @CNN spreads propaganda to elect Democrats[.] And then @Twitter runs interference to protect CNN. They’re all on the same team,” said Donald Trump Jr.
“At this point, both @CNN and @Twitter should have to register with the FEC as Democrat Super PACs,” continued Trump Jr.
