illary Rodham Clinton, former Secretary of State and failed 2016 presidential candidate, is backing an insidious new global censorship bill that would change the Internet as we know it.
The mastermind behind the infamous Russia hoax unironically tweeted her support for a shadowy bill called the Digital Services Act, which is gaining traction in the European Union.
“For too long, tech platforms have amplified disinformation and extremism with no accountability,” Clinton tweeted. “The EU is poised to do something about it. I urge our transatlantic allies to push the Digital Services Act across the finish line and bolster global democracy before it’s too late.”
Hillary Clinton, it should be noted, falsely alleged Trump-Russia collusion, leading to the illegal surveillance of a presidential campaign and the sabotage of Trump’s presidency for years. One of her tweets is also in the crosshairs of John Durham, the Special Counsel charged with investigation the Russia probe origins.
“The Democratic cybersecurity lawyer charged with concealing his work for the Clinton campaign from the FBI doesn’t want special counsel John Durham to be able to use Hillary Clinton’s tweet touting the Trump-Russia collusion claims he was pushing as evidence at trial,” the Washington Examiner reported on Tuesday.
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign paid a tech firm tied to university researchers to spy on then-candidate Donald Trump’s private and campaign communications. Special Counsel John Durham highlighted these findings in a motion to probe potential conflicts of interest with lawyer Michael Sussmann, who had worked for the Hillary Clinton campaign.

This is referring to the debunked political smear that Donald Trump had a secret bank wire with a Putin-linked Moscow bank named Alfa Bank. Clinton’s lawyer Michael Sussmann utilized the false accusations to argue that the federal government should conduct surveillance on the Trump campaign. Sussmann even peddled this baseless allegation to FBI and the Central Intelligence Agency.
Hillary Clinton even tweeted out this disinformation. Twice.
“Durham told the federal court last week he wanted an October 2016 tweet from the Clinton campaign promoting the Alfa-Bank claims to be admitted as evidence at the May trial,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“The special counsel argued the tweet is not inadmissible hearsay ‘because it is not being offered for its truth’ — emphasizing that the prosecutors actually believe its claims were false,” the report noted. “Durham said he instead wanted to present the tweet to ‘show the existence of the defendant’s attorney-client relationship with the Clinton Cam…
