Donald Trump signs an executive order seeking the power to undo a 1996 law so he can sue social media sites for censoring or fact-checking his posts ahead of the 2020 election.
The order comes after Twitter adds disclaimers to two of his tweets spreading disinformation.
The intention is to override Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which prevents websites like Twitter from being held legally responsible for content that users post. The executive order must not serve its purpose, though; appealing Section 230 becomes a primary focus of Trump and the GOP months later.
TrumpFile.org is a free resource tracking long-term immorality, lawbreaking, and corruption by Donald Trump and his friends throughout the years. Our objective is to create a timeline of events so thorough that corruption and mafia influence cannot be denied.
The transnational crime syndicate operating within the United States did not begin with Donald Trump and won’t end with him, either. Be informed now before it’s too late.
Trump File would not be possible without the hard work of journalists, photographers, and other citizens dedicating their time and energy to documenting the events that brought us here. We are especially grateful to The Moscow Project for their in-depth timeline of Trump/Russia events and to Sarah Kendzior for her book Hiding In Plain Sight.
