Former President Donald Trump’s YouTube channel will remain suspended indefinitely, Politico reports.

YouTube banned Trump from its platform Jan. 12 following the U.S. Capitol attack. Last week, YouTube extended the suspension for at least one week before the indefinite suspension was announced Tuesday.

“In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will remain suspended,” YouTube spokesperson Ivy Choi said in a statement obtained by Politico. “Our teams are staying vigilant and closely monitoring for any new developments.”

YouTube has also restricted Trump adviser and lawyer Rudy Giuliani from earning money off his videos.

Last week, Giuliani was suspended from YouTube’s Partner Program for at least 30 days, prohibiting him from profiting off of ads that run on his videos.

YouTube accused Giuliani of violating its policies by repeatedly sharing election misinformation.

According to YouTube community guidelines, “spam, scams, or other manipulated media, coordinated influence operations, and any content that seeks to incite violence” are prohibited. Content “alleging widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. Presidential election” are also prohibited. However, they do allow “controversial views on the outcome or process of counting votes of a current election.”

“We welcome ongoing debate and discussion and will keep engaging with experts, researchers and organizations to ensure that our policies and products are meeting that goal,” YouTube said.

Giuliani can appeal the suspension with YouTube or reapply to the program after 30 days, the company said.

‘Coordinated effort’ to hide Hunter Biden information: Treasury denies request for reports

The United States Treasury Department has denied Republicans’ request for reports and documents which deal with the President’s son, Hunter Biden. In a bizarre response, Treasury legislative affairs chief Jonathan Davidson sent a letter to the House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer saying they need more detail as to why the panel its seeking such “highly sensitive information.”

Apparently suspicious activity surrounding the President of the United States’ son doing business deals, foreign banking and transactions with overseas entities including China and Ukraine is not obvious enough.

Davidson’s letter did not acknowledge whether such reports on the Bidens exist, but instructed Comer that “improper disclosure” of such information can undermine the executive branch’s “conduct of law enforcement, intelligence, and national security activities.”

Comer responded that “this coordinated effort by the Biden Administration to hide information about President Biden and his family’s shady business schemes is alarming and raises many questions.”

Comer added the panel will continue to request the reports and will use “the power of the gavel to get them if needed.”

Bloomberg News reports:

Comer and other Republicans already said they have evidence that finances, credit cards, and bank accounts of Hunter and Joe Biden were commingled if not shared.

And in an interim report released in November, Republicans surmised that the Treasury Department has at least 150 SARs related to financial transactions of Biden family members.

Nonetheless, in his letter to Yellen, Comer explained, “The Committee is investigating President Biden’s knowledge of and role in these schemes to assess whether he has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people.”

Comer added the committee also “will examine drafting legislation to strengthen federal ethics laws regarding employees and their families.”
