President Trump’s battle with censorship continued this weekend as Twitter briefly prevented its users from interacting with his tweets early Saturday morning.

Twitter users were unable to like or reply to a series of tweets made by Trump concerning election fraud and the recent US Supreme Court decision on the Texas lawsuit.

When users attempted to interact with the tweets, they received an alert explaining why Twitter had disabled the features.

“We try to prevent a Tweet like this that otherwise breaks the Twitter Rules from reaching more people, so we have disabled most of the ways to engage with it,” stated Twitter.

A few hours later the features had been reinstated on the tweets, while still bearing a warning label stating that the contents of the post were disputed.

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to The Hill on Saturday that the actions on the tweets had been reversed.

“We inadvertently took action to limit engagements on the labeled Tweet,” the spokesperson said. “You can now engage with the Tweet, but in line with our Civic Integrity Policy it will continue to be labeled in order to give more context for anyone who might see the Tweet.”

“Throughout the year, we made product changes and policy updates to encourage more thoughtful consideration and reduce the potential for misleading information to spread on Twitter,” the spokesperson added.

Twitter began fact-checking Trump’s tweets earlier this year and has consistently added warning labels to his tweets claiming the information is “misleading.”

Trump’s battle with censorship has been ongoing and has escalated in recent months with Trump calling for an end of Section 230.

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
