Diamond And Silk: Conservative Media Personalities Lied Under Oath, Per 'The Hill'

Diamond And Silk: Conservative Media Personalities Lied Under Oath, Per 'The Hill'

"Facebook along with other social media sites have taken aggressive actions to silence conservative voices such as ourselves by deliberately restricting and weaponizing our page with algorithms that censor and suppress out free speech", Diamond, whose real name is Lynette Hardaway, testified to the House Judiciary Committee. "This is a stupid and ridiculous hearing", he said. The women also claimed they were blocked from Facebook and stood by this despite being unable to prove anything of the sort.

When Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, known more commonly by their internet monickers of "Diamond and Silk", affirmed that Jeffries' recollection was correct, the congressman offered another question: "Are you aware that your testimony today is under oath subject to the penalty of perjury?"

Facebook denies it, but the two women report the social media giant launched a campaign of "bias censorship and discrimination" against their D&S brand page.

In tense exchanges with representative Hakeem Jeffries of NY and Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, the women also denied having ever been paid by the Trump campaign. The pair has since been embraced by traditional conservative media, appearing on Fox News several times and on stage with Trump during a 2015 campaign rally.

Third Federal Judge Agrees: Trump Must Keep DACA
DACA temporarily shielded from deportation so-called Dreamers - immigrants brought illegally to the USA as children. Federal judges in San Francisco and NY previously blocked the Trump administration from ending the program for now.

"[Republicans] have prioritized this spectacle over every other kind of conversation we should be having today and we should have been having for the past year", Nadler said. "But after doing our research we wondered if Mark Zuckerberg was using Facebook to interfere in the 2018 elections by labeling users accounts as either Liberal, Very Liberal, Moderate, Conservative or Very Conservative".

Conservative YouTube stars Diamond and Silk claimed under oath that they were never paid by the Trump campaign in the run-up to the 2016 election.

The self-proclaimed "most outspoken and loyal" Trump supporters have gained an online following for their debriefs on politics, the Trump administration and news of the day on their Youtube channel and on Facebook and Twitter. When asked specifically about Diamond and Silk's claims, he said that they had mistakenly received a message calling their content unsafe and the error was being resolved.

Diamond and Silk were a focus for some Republicans when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress earlier this month.
