Twitter Bans Project Veritas’s Spracklen Following Exposé on Fauci

January 12th, 2022 5:02 PM

Twitter censored Project Veritas Chief of Staff Eric Spracklen for alleged “ban evasion” just after Spracklen posted the outlet’s bombshell report claiming evidence that Dr. Anthony Fauci spoke falsely under oath.

While Project Veritas and its founder James O’Keefe have both been previously banned in 2021 by Twitter, Spracklen’s personal Twitter account was operating for at least five years, even before he worked for Project Veritas, per A screenshot taken Dec. 31, 2021, showed that his account was not verified, and that he noted "Views are mine." 

Twitter took action against Spracklen’s account in 2021 more than once, but the account was only permanently banned on Jan. 11, 2022. Twitter’s reported justification of the ban was “ban evasion,” according to other Twitter accounts’ screenshots, even though Spracklen’s account had never been banned.

Twitter may be labeling Spracklen's account as a proxy account for Project Veritas, since he continued to tweet information released by the guerrilla journalism organization after Twitter banned the outlet. Interestingly, Twitter disabled Spracklen’s account shortly after he posted Project Veritas' latest exposé, which implicated Fauci, the director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

Documentation that O’Keefe said has been verified states that NIAID research partner EcoHealth Alliance had been searching for funding for gain-of-function coronavirus research in 2018. Project Veritas’s obtained documents also indicated that Fauci advanced such research in locations including Wuhan, China. If authentic, the documents contradict Fauci’s testimony under oath that NIAID had not been involved with gain-of-function research with EcoHealth. The reported DARPA documents defined EcoHealth’s proposed research as “gain of function.”
