Adam Schiff ‘Concerned’ That Elon Musk’s ‘Personal Views Will Stop the Fight Against Disinformation on Social Media’ After Twitter Purchase

U.S. House Rep Adam Schiff (D-CA) weighed in yesterday after Twitter agreed to a deal with Elon Musk for him to purchase the company.

In a tweet, Schiff began, “Here’s my take on the world’s richest man buying Twitter: He makes a great car and rocket.”

“But I’m concerned his personal views will stop the fight against disinformation on social media,” Schiff claimed.

Schiff then insisted, “The problem on Twitter hasn’t been too much content moderation – it’s too much hate.”

Donald Trump Jr. fired back at Schiff in a quote tweet where he lamented, “No one in congress has spread more disinformation than this guy, but because he’s a leftist there’s no consequences.”

“Whatever happened to all the Russia Collusion info he said “saw with his own eyes”? Or the altered emails like @Jim_Jordan’s and mine?” Trump Jr. wondered.

Trump Jr. then pointed out, “America is still waiting.”

Trump Jr. wasn’t the only one to respond incredulously to Schiff, as The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway asked, “Remember when you knowingly and maliciously pushed disinformation for YEARS, falsely claiming to have evidence of Trump colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election?”

CEO and co-founder of The Federalist, Sean Davis, put it more bluntly as he laid out in a quote tweet, “You fabricated text messages from Jim Jordan. You lied about Russian collusion. You fabricated emails from Don Jr.”

“You are the last person on earth who should be whining about ‘disinformation.’ YOU are the biggest source of disinformation in the country,” Davis declared.
