Twitter, a popular social media network that’s been accused of left-wing bias because of how it unfairly enforces its “standards of conduct,” appears to believe that sworn court affidavits don’t count as legitimate forms of evidence.
On Saturday, the official Twitter account of President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign tweeted a video of senior campaign adviser Jenna Ellis speaking about the sworn affidavits that the president’s legal team has procured.
The campaign captioned the tweet by including a quote from Ellis.
“We have sworn affidavits of people who have seen not only voter intimidation but these election officials telling them to count ballots in a different way that is against the law,” the caption reads.
Look, and pay attention to the warning that’s been affixed to it:

“This claim about election fraud is disputed,” the warning reads.
The warning doesn’t specify what “claim” is disputed. If the issue is the quote from Ellis that Trump’s legal team has “sworn affidavits,” then there’s a problem:
THIS IS NOT A DISPUTE, IT IS A FACT! https://t.co/06uy7oH5v9

Ummm is @Twitter claiming they don’t have sworn affidavits? Because that isn’t “disputed” at this point.

If the “dispute” instead pertains to the allegations of voting malfeasance and fraud that are contained in the affidavits, that too is a problem:

Disputed tag on this??? @Twitter and 🤡 @jack 🤡have not seen them, so how exactly can they be “disputed”? Anything not approved by the dems is now “disputed”…
But good news for twitter, they have no credibility left to lose! 🖕https://t.co/qw0a85ATRq

Unless Twitter’s own legal team has reviewed the affidavits, it’s in no position to dispute their contents. And even if it has reviewed them, it still lacks the judicial (not to mention moral) standing to reach such a judgement.
Another possibility is that the warning pertains to something else that was said by Ellis in the clip that was plucked from Fox News’ “Watters World.”
“Every legal vote should count. So we have evidence in three states — Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada — where the law was not followed. I just explained also in Georgia. We have a recount that’s going on in Wisconsin. And we’re also looking into Arizona,” the clip began with her saying.
“So when we talk about widespread, systematic fraud, it’s about these election officials that have completely disregarded the rules, and that’s against the law. It’s a violation of the Constitution. Only those state legislatures can set the law for how the elections are run in their states.”

“When you have election officials that are completely disregarding that, and we have sworn affidavits of people who have seen not only voter intimidation but these election officials telling them to count ballots in a different way that is against the law — and when you also have ballots being counted in secret, every American should want to know that our elections are not being manipulated,” Ellis continued.
“That’s the point of this election integrity process, and we do intend to challenge that, and we believe this election was stolen. We can prove that, and we have enough evidence in each of these states that when every legal vote is counted, President Trump clearly won in a landslide.”
The latter claim — that the president won — has definitely been disputed by congressional Democrats and their media allies, both of whom fervently claim Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden won the 2020 race.
However, the actual decision doesn’t lie with them. The winner won’t be determined until the election results in every state are certified and the states’ Electoral College representatives cast their respective votes on Dec. 14.
Until that time, the winner of the race remains unclear, and anyone claiming or suggesting otherwise — including Twitter — is the one whose claim is in dispute.
And yes, Twitter does believe wholeheartedly that Biden is the rightful winner.
Late last week the left-wing social media network confirmed to Politico that it intends to transfer all government-managed accounts to Biden’s team on Inauguration Day, even if the president’s ongoing lawsuits against the election results are ongoing.

“[E]ven should Trump continue to contest his loss and fight his removal from the White House on Jan. 20, he won’t have a say in whether he hangs on to one of the presidency’s main digital assets,” Politico reported Friday.
Speaking with Politico, a Twitter spokesperson added, “Twitter is actively preparing to support the transition of White House institutional Twitter accounts on January 20th, 2021.”
Fact-check: This claim that Biden won the election and will be transitioning into the White House is disputed.
