The Trump War Room tweeted out a video and provided a transcript of what Trump attorney Jenna Ellis said they now have in their possession. You’ll notice Twitter deemed it worthy of a “disputed claim” tag:

“We have sworn affidavits of people who have seen not only voter intimidation but these election officials telling them to count ballots in a different way that is against the law.” – @JennaEllisEsq

— Trump War Room – Text TRUMP to 88022 (@TrumpWarRoom) November 21, 2020

That brought up some questions, starting with this one:

I find it amazing @Twitter can dispute an allegation in an affidavit they haven’t even seen. This is how you lose total credibility.

By that standard any tweet about what somebody said they have in their possession could get tagged as “disputed” — any tweet from a Republican, that is.

@Twitter What do you mean it’s disputed? She said it’s in affidavits.

Is Twitter just assuming Ellis might not be telling the truth?

P.s. Dear @Twitter – this claim is not disputed until you produce evidence & signed affidavits by witnesses disputing it & willing to swear to it under penalty of perjury. Until then your spreading false information.

Disputed by who? Hipster twitter?

Too bad there wasn’t a “claim is disputed” tag back when Democrats were going nuts with the “Russia collusion” allegation — not that Twitter would have used it.
