Schiff calls for social media companies to “do much more,” calls banning Trump from Twitter “a good start”

Friday, Rep. Adam Schiff praised the banning of Donald Trump from Twitter, but also called for social media companies to “do much more.”

Schiff wrote:

Donald Trump spent years demagoguing, lying, spreading hate, and propagating conspiracies on Twitter. And worse, inciting violence.

Social media companies have allowed this vile content to fester for too long, and need to do much more.

But banning him is a good start.

Schiff also issued a statement on impeachment proceedings, writing:

The House should act to begin impeachment proceedings.

It’s the only instrument wholly within our power to remove a president who has so manifestly and repeatedly violated the Constitution.

Every effort must be made to protect the country from further harm.
