While one of the journalists behind the Twitter Files was testifying about his finding in front of Congress, he was also being harassed by government goons who showed up to his house unannounced.
Matt Taibbi was in DC in early March to testify about the evidence he found of the government’s abuse of its relationship with Twitter and big tech to censor speech and control what Americans saw on their social media feeds. Meanwhile, the IRS had sent their folks out to Taibbi’s home to make an unscheduled visit.
TOTALLY NOT AN INTIMIDATION TACTIC!
The Wall Street Journal reported that Taibbi was visited because his previous tax returns from 2018 and 2021 had been rejected.
But they decided that an in-person visit was warranted instead of an electronic communication like you would normally expect.
It’s “not clear” why.
