Twitter ignited upon the news Tuesday that CEO Elon Musk booted former
FBI general counsel James Baker from the company for "suppression" of information.
Journalist Matt Taibbi, who revealed the "Twitter Files" on Friday,
shared an article about the now-ousted Twitter deputy general counsel
Baker's connections to FBI controversies involving the Trump-Russia
The article, from New York Post opinion writer Jonathan Turley, said
that Baker was "at the center of the Twitter suppression scandal."
Turley also observed, "Baker has been featured repeatedly in the
Russian investigations launched by the Justice Department, including
the hoax involving the Russian Alfa Bank."
Musk responded to Taibbi's tweet of the article by announcing that
Baker had been removed from the company entirely.
"In light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from
Twitter today," Musk tweeted.
