The tweets showed comments from Jennifer Lynn Lawrence who was retweeted by former President Trump. The two tweets that were exhibited included blue check marks next to Lawrence’s name.
Blue checks show the user’s identity has been verified and also connotes a certain status.
“The final graphic accidentally had a blue verification checkmark on it, but the substance of it was entirely accurate,” the aide said.
The aide added: “If anything, it is further evidence of President Trump’s attention to and knowledge of what was being openly planned on January 6 by his followers, even those without Twitter verifications.”
Singling out Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., Lawrence tweeted earlier this week: “I’ve never been verified on Twitter so why did my Tweet used in the fact-free impeachment include a verification badge?”
In an open letter, Lawrence rejected Swalwell’s implication that she meant to bring troops to the Capitol. The California congressman was criticizing her claim that she would bring “calvary,” but purportedly misconstruing it as horses or “cavalry.”
Calvary according to the Gospels of the Bible, is a site outside the walls of Jerusalem’s where Jesus was crucified
Swalwell mispronounced “calvary” as “cavalry” while reading her tweet and proceeded to claim on Feb. 10: “This was not just any old protest. President Trump was inciting something historic. The cavalry was coming, and he was organized.”
“I don’t do horses ok (I’m from New York),” Lawrence wrote. “I’m not in the army either so the use of the word cavalry would have been pretty stupid. It’s a wonder Congressman Swalwell didn’t pick up on it.
“Bringing the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ (AKA the salvation of everyone) back to Washington DC was EXACTLY why we organized three successful protests on November 14, December 12, and January 5th. We believe our sacred institutions have rotted through with bloat and corruption PRECISELY because they have separated the State from God.”
“I actually feel relaxed, and quite confidant the vote to ‘impeach’ will be bounced out. We know of course that Romney, the guy that knows more than everyone – we know how he will vote. But, I think we should just settle down, take a big breath, watch what unfolds in the next months and years of the current White House resident, and slowly, surely and steadily prepare for the next election. We have plenty of time as a great Republican Party to gather our ideas, our hearts and souls together, select and encourage the best we can get our hands on, assure fairness and accountability in the next election (including ‘mid-terms’), and just stay mellow. We will do just fine. Remember, we don’t have a: Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, Cuomo, AOC, Omar, sleepy, Harris, Bernie, Waters, Schiffty, Hillary on our team, so we are already ‘ahead’ in the run for the White House.”
“No matter what happens, he will go down as the worst president ever and will be remembered by his actions on July 6th. The fat orange man is done. And “great Republican party”?!? Thank your buddy Sweaty Orange for ruining that.”
“A kangaroo court may ignore due process and come to a predetermined conclusion. The term may also apply to a court held by a legitimate judicial authority which intentionally disregards the court’s legal or ethical obligations. Why are the Democrats going through this sham when they already decided what the outcome should be?”
““No matter how minor the fabricated evidence is, presenting or preparing false evidence is an automatic felony. Escaping prison time will be almost near to impossible if you are found guilty. Prison time will range from 16 months to three years. Additionally, the judge has the discretion to consider probation or a fine” That is what would happen to the House Impeachment mangers if this hearing took place in a court of law.”
“Actually, there were a few of tweets in 2019 that used the word “fight”, while thanking President Trump for standing up for us. The democrats hate us so much, they can’t stand when ever President Trump does someone good by working for them or standing by them. I remember when twitter would ban users that were retweeted by President Trump.”
