The Lincoln Project on Tuesday tweeted out the contact info of two attorneys working for President Donald Trump‘s legal team to challenge the election results from Pennsylvania and appeared to urge its followers to harass the duo. The Republican anti-Trump group faced fierce backlash from conservatives across Twitter for this action.

It is important to note that this contact info is publicly available on their respective professional biographies on the website of the Porter Wright law firm. Therefore this does not meet the definition of doxxing, something which some people have falsely accused the Lincoln Project of.

“Here are two attorneys attempting to help Trump overturn the will of the Pennsylvanian people,” the group tweeted, followed by their names, and their phone numbers and emails for work. After that, the group then said to “Make them famous.”

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
