Court Document Reveals Jack Smith Obtained A Search Warrant For Donald Trump’s Twitter Account

Newly released court documents reveal Special Counsel Jack Smith obtained a search warrant for former president Donald Trump’s Twitter account in January.

Twitter delayed compliance and did not fully produce the information requested on the “@realDonaldTrump” account until three days after the court’s deadline, leading a federal judge to hold Twitter in contempt and issue a $350,000 sanction, according to a document revealed Wednesday. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upheld the lower court’s decision in July.

The district court initially issued a nondisclosure order barring Twitter from notifying anyone about the warrant, which Twitter contested as a violation of the First Amendment and the Stored Communications Act.
