IRS Make Unannounced Visit to “Twitter Files” journalist Matt Taibbi’s Home

IRS Make Unannounced Visit to “Twitter Files” journalist Matt Taibbi’s Home. By Ari Blaff.

Federal agents were dispatched to Taibbi’s residence the very same day that the investigative journalist appeared before the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government

During Taibbi’s visit to Capitol Hill, Representative Stacey Plaskett (D., Virgin Islands) denounced the former Rolling Stones journalist as a threat. …

Plaskett derided Taibbi as a “so-called journalist” and repeatedly insisted that there was no “real evidence” publicized in the Twitter Files showing coordination between the federal government and the social-media platform.

“Ranking Member Plaskett, I’m not a so-called journalist,” Taibbi countered. “I’ve won the National Magazine Award, the I.F. Stone Award for Independent Journalism, and I’ve written ten books, including four New York Times best sellers.”

Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fl.) engaged in a similar line of hostile questioning.

“Being a Republican witness today certainly casts a cloud over your objectivity.”

Amazing coincidence, or how the world really works.
