NYTimes complied quotes from today's impeachment proceedings.

 

Representative Jamie Raskin (Democrat) of Maryland, the lead impeachment manager:

“It’s a bit much to be hearing that these people would not be trying to destroy our government and kill us if we just weren’t so mean to them.”

Boebert's twitter account is back up

 

https://thehill.com/policy/technology/534099-twitter-says-lock-on-gop-congresswomans-account-was-result-of-incorrect


Quoting the article:
Twitter on Wednesday said that the brief locking of a GOP congresswoman's account was the result of "incorrect enforcement action." 


A spokesperson for Twitter confirmed to The Hill Wednesday afternoon that the site's content moderation team "took the incorrect enforcement action" in response to one of the congresswoman's tweets, and had rectified the decision by unfreezing Boebert's account and placing a warning on the tweet in question.

 

"The Tweet in question is now labeled in accordance with our Civic Integrity Policy. The Tweet will not be required to be removed and the account will not be temporarily locked," said the Twitter spokesperson.

 

The incident appeared to center around a Jan. 9 tweet in which Boebert falsely accused the Democratic National Committee (DNC) of rigging the 2020 election. The tweet is now labeled with a content warning from Twitter which restricts users from replying to or otherwise interacting with the post.

 

End quote.

So he used the White House youtube account because his own was suspended.


But he still took the opportunity to say a bunch of times "our movement",

 and to whine about his ban from social media.


He didn't condemn the display of Confederate and Nazi symbols.
