Twitter removes Lincoln Project tweet sharing contact info of Trump campaign attorneys

Twitter removed a post from The Lincoln Project on Tuesday, an anti-Trump Republican PAC, that shared contact information and photos of two attorneys representing President Trump’s 2020 campaign.

Attorneys Carolyn McGee and Ronald Hicks are assisting the Trump team in its legal battle over mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania. The Lincoln Project tweeted, “Make them famous,” to its 2.7 million followers along with an emoji depicting a skull-and-crossbones.

“The Tweet referenced is in violation of the Twitter Rules on abusive behavior,” a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement to Fox News. “The account owner will be required to delete the violative Tweet before regaining access to their account.”

Neither McGee nor Hicks immediately responded to Fox News’ request for comment.

The Lincoln Project defended the tweet after Twitter removed it for violating its policies.

“Donald Trump’s encouragement of harassment [sic] of American democracy is undemocratic, potentially dangerous, and counterproductive. Whatever you think of the Administration’s legal arguments, targeting the sanctity of our elections is immoral [and] ineffective,” the PAC wrote.

The Lincoln Project also instructed Twitter users to create a LinkedIn account for the sole purpose of messaging employees at the attorneys’ law firms Jones Day and Porter Wright to “ask them how they can work for an organization trying to overturn the will of the American people.” The account then posted screenshots of messages from users who followed the instructions.
