1 – Jan. 6 committee hit with first YouTube takedown for clip of Trump discussing election
The Washington Examiner reports: YouTube took down a recent video from the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot for containing an excerpt from former President Donald Trump that violated its election integrity policy, marking one of the first known instances of the panel facing censorship from Big Tech.
The video, uploaded on June 14, displayed a segment of former Attorney General William Barr’s testimony that included a snippet of Trump bemoaning alleged election malfeasance during an interview with Fox Business. The inclusion of Trump’s remarks ran afoul of the tech company’s content policy regulations, the company said.
“Our election integrity policy prohibits content advancing false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or glitches changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, if it does not provide sufficient context,” a YouTube spokesperson told the Washington Examiner. “We enforce our policies equally for everyone, and have removed the video uploaded by the Jan. 6 committee channel.”
Initially, YouTube overlayed the Jan.6 committee video with a graphic stating that the video have been taken down for flouting the company’s terms of service, according to the New York Times. Since then, the video was modified to state that “this video is private,” likely meaning that YouTube may permit the panel to upload a different iteration of the footage that clarifies Trump’s remarks were false, according to the outlet.
In the censored clip, Trump said, “We had glitches where they moved thousands of votes from my account to Biden’s account.”
MY TAKE: Every once in a while you just have to laugh!

The incidents happened at all hours of the day and targeted check cashing stores, a diner, barber shops and other businesses.

3 – House Democrat calls for Clarence Thomas to resign
The Hill reports: Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) called on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to resign on Thursday after news that his wife, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, emailed with conservative lawyer John Eastman, who was central in former President Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
In a statement on Thursday, Pascrell said Thomas “cannot possibly be seen as a neutral actor,” labeling him “a corrupt jurist.”
“Over the last few years, we have become numb to bad acts by powerful actors, but Clarence and Ginni Thomas have participated in one of the worst breaches of trust ever seen in our court system,” Pascrell said.
“Clarence Thomas cannot possibly be seen as a neutral actor but instead as a corrupt jurist who has poisoned the High Court. Clarence Thomas should have dignity and final respect for our democracy and resign,” he added.
