Another proof of High-Tech bosses gone berserk: YouTube removed a recording of an opening statement by one of President Donald Trump’s lawyers in the U.S. Senate.
Lawyer Jesse Binnall was addressing the U.S. Senate Homeland Security to explain President Trump’s case in the allegations of widespread election fraud.
As reported by Epoch Times, Binnall announced on his Twitter account: “YouTube has decided that my opening statement in the U.S. (Senate), given under oath and based upon hard evidence, is too dangerous for you to see; they removed it. To this day, ‘our evidence has never been refuted, only ignored.’ Why is Google so afraid of the truth?”
YouTube is a Google subsidiary.
According to Epoch Times, another video of Binnall’s testimony, uploaded on Dec. 17 by a separate account, appeared to be still up.
The Epoch Times, the only major media outlet that made this into a headline thus far, asked YouTube for comment. No report yet of any reply.
We told you so?
YouTube announced on Wednesday, Dec. 9, that it would remove “content alleging widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. presidential election.”
Herewith its explanation: the “safe harbour” deadline on Dec. 8 in the presidential election had passed.
What this means: Dec. 8 is the day by which all states have to certify election results within their boundaries, basically telling the Congress this is what it is.
Except: the election in November selects only the electors. They, in turn, should vote on their states’ behalf in the College of Electors (Monday, Dec. 14, this year).
Yes, it is expected that their votes would reflect their individual states’ results, but: there are still outstanding legal challenges regarding the Nov. 3 election.
Said YouTube: “For example, we will remove videos claiming that a presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software glitches or counting errors. We will begin enforcing this policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come.”
To cover their behinds, YouTube poohbahs added: “As always, news coverage and commentary on these issues can remain on our site if there’s sufficient education, documentary, scientific, or artistic context.”
No word on what precisely that is supposed to mean.
Binnall, who filed lawsuits on behalf of Trump in Nevada, told the Senators that the election in the Silver State was riddled with fraud.
“Thousands upon thousands of Nevada voters had their voices cancelled out by election fraud and invalid ballots,” Epoch Times quotes him as telling the Senators.
Binnall provided an explanation: “Here is how it happened. On August 3rd, 2020, after a rushed special session, Nevada legislators made drastic changes to the state’s election law by adopting a bill known as AB4.”
That bill relaxed restrictions on mail-in ballots.
Trump’s campaign, in its attempts to seek audits of voting machines or ballots, did not receive the transparency as required by law.
The presidential incumbent’s campaign officials were refused access by state election officials to the code of voting machines for a forensic review. They were not allowed to check whether “they were hooked up to the internet.”
Binnall added: “We weren’t allowed near them … we weren’t allowed a forensic audit.”
The situation would become almost a bizarre case for the Keystone Kops of the silent movie era at one turn, Binnall told the Senators: a Nevada official “locked himself in his office” and wouldn’t open the door when Trump’s lawyers tried to serve him a subpoena.
