Lee risponde a Feinstein sui sostenitori armati di Trump: 'Only violence that I'm aware of' was from Antifa

Suo. Mike Lee, R-Utah, pointed out violence by Antifa when Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., implied that Il presidente Trump tweets incite violence and seemed to advocate for more censorship of the president on social media during a hearing with big tech CEOs.

On Nov. 7, President Trump tweeted this: ‘I won this election by a lot,'” Feinstein said at Tuesday’s Senato udito. “The warning label that Twitter has applied to the tweet ‘Official sources may not have called the race when this was tweeted’ … Does that label do enough to prevent the tweet’s harms?”

I’m really struck by it, that people armed with assault weapons as a product of a tweet could rally outside an election office,” Feinstein said. “It’s really a serious issue that needs to be considered, and there need to be once you signal thatit has to be in some way abated or some way pointed out or restructured on the Internet itself.

Lee responded to her comments when it was his time to speak.

I’d like to note that as far as the president’s election and how they turned out inciting violence, I’d like to point out that the only violence I’m aware of has occurred in connection with Antifa, Antifa’s response to pro-Trump peaceful rally attenders,” Lee said.
