Twitter Hires Disgraced FBI Lawyer James Baker, Key Actor in Coup Attempt

This broke yesterday, but I missed it.

Isn't it terribly odd that those who lost their jobs due to abuse of office and crimes such as obstruction of justice all very soon get hired by media and now social media companies, assuredly for more than they were previously making?

Why, it's almost as if leftwing media corporations are handing out barely-disguised bribes to the coup plotters.

Twitter has hired former FBI general counsel James Baker, the firm announced Monday.

Baker was the FBI's top lawyer during Crossfire Hurricane, the investigation into the Trump campaign.

In that role, Baker supported the decision to obtain surveillance warrants against Carter Page. A Justice Department watchdog has found that the FBI improperly relied on the Steele dossier in order to obtain those warrants.

...

Baker "is committed to our core principles of an open internet and freedom of expression," Edgett said in a statement. Baker "brings experience navigating complex, global issues with a principled approach."

Those are Twitter's "core principles"? Are you fucking kidding me?

Baker joins Twitter amid a battle with President Donald Trump over censorship of conservative users of the platform.

Yeah, they're just dedicated to an open internet and freedom of expression.
