Douglass Mackey, formerly “Ricky Vaughn” on Twitter, has been indicted for posting satirical anti-Hillary memes during the 2016 presidential election.
Days after Joe Biden was inaugurated, Mackey was arrested, as the politicization of justice in America throttled up to new heights.
A Clinton-appointed district court judge Nicholas G. Garaufis refused to toss the case out.
The Justice Department failed to produce any witnesses “fooled” by the memes, but introduced evidence some texted the numbers, although most likely done in jest.
One witness for Mackey’s defense was intimidated by the Southern Poverty Law Center into withdrawing their testimony.
The 33-year-old Mackey, who has a legal defense fund, now faces sentencing up to ten years in prison for violation of 18 U.S. Code § 241, a subset of the Enforcement Act of 1871.
Democrat ballot stuffers from the 2020 election remain uninvestigated and the Twitter user shown below faced no repercussions. Welcome to our Banana Republic.
