Fox News contributor Dan Bongino was suspended from Twitter Thursday for posting President Donald Trump’s taped speech following the violent protests in Washington D.C.
According to a Twitter spokesperson, Bongino’s account was suspended for “sharing content that violates the Twitter Rules.” In order to gain access to his account, Bongino is required to delete the violative Tweet.
In response to the suspension, Bongino announced he would be leaving Twitter and primarily using Parler instead.
In Bongino’s final tweet, he called Twitter an “anti-American platform.”
“This will be my final post on this anti-American platform,” Bongino wrote. “The greatest threats to liberty are the destructive tech tyrants who have acted as publishers in their ongoing wars on conservatives & free speech. You can find me on Parler, where we respect free speech. I’m “dbongino.””
On “The Dan Bongino Show” podcast Thursday, Bongino, who is an investor in Parler, referred to Twitter as “totalitarian” and suggested his listeners stop using Facebook and Twitter and create a Parler account instead.
“You know, some people may like it,” he said referring to Twitter. “Maybe they use it for news or whatever and I don’t want to make it about me. I mean, if you’re asking me, yes, I think you should get off Twitter because Twitter hates you.”
Bongino criticized YouTube for its censorship after the platform restricted accounts – including the account of President Trump’s.
Bongino has also left YouTube for Rumble, which is a video platform for “conservative content creators.”
“Snuff Dan Bongino out on YouTube where they demonetize their videos all the time, I just move to Rumble, where we don’t discriminate based on ideology. Reduce my distribution on Facebook, I’ll put the videos on Rumble. Reduce my distribution on Twitter, I’ll just put my information on Parler,” Bongino said.
“Twitter needs me,” Bongino said. “I don’t need Twitter.”

Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Gun Charges Amidst Special Counsel Investigation
In a significant development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was indicted on Thursday on federal gun charges as part of Special Counsel David Weiss’ ongoing investigation. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden made false statements during the purchase of a firearm, among other charges.
The charges against Hunter Biden include:
• Making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm
• Making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer
•Possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance
According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred on or about October 12, 2018, in the District of Delaware. Hunter Biden is accused of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement during the acquisition of a Colt Cobra 38SPL Revolver. According to reports from Fox News, the statement, submitted on Form 4473, falsely certified that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, or controlled substance.
Furthermore, the indictment further states that between October 12, 2018, and October 23, 2018, in the District of Delaware, Hunter Biden knowingly possessed the same firearm despite being an unlawful user of and addicted to controlled substances. This marks the first set of charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss against Hunter Biden since being granted special counsel status.
The investigation came to public attention when it was reported by Fox News in 2021 that police had responded to an incident in 2018 involving a gun owned by Hunter Biden.
Reports state that, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son, Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, discarded the gun. Hunter’s gun was thrown away in a dumpster near a market, located close to a school. It was subsequently revealed that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that same month.
Hunter Biden’s legal troubles do not end with the gun charges. Earlier in July, an original plea agreement collapsed, which would have seen him plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax counts for willful failure to pay federal income tax, thus avoiding jail time on a felony gun charge. Instead, he pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation and related matters. The White House has declined to comment on these developments, which continue to draw significant public and media attention.
