Conservatives have long complained that their voices are being censored on major social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.

You may have heard of attorney Michael Marando before.
Marando was part of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team that conducted a bogus investigation into collusion between Russia and Trump’s 2016 campaign.
And Marando was also one of the prosecutors in the case against Trump ally Roger Stone. Those prosecutors were so overzealous that a federal judge threw out their sentencing recommendations and Trump ended up commuting Stone’s sentence.
Now, according to Bloomberg, Marando is leaving the Justice Department for Silicon Valley.

It was quickly restored — but then Twitter temporarily suspended Trump’s account last month for alleged “hateful conduct” after he threatened to use force to quell protests.
