The Trump War Room tweeted out a video and provided a transcript of what Trump attorney Jenna Ellis said they now have in their possession. You’ll notice Twitter deemed it worthy of a “disputed claim” tag:
“We have sworn affidavits of people who have seen not only voter intimidation but these election officials telling them to count ballots in a different way that is against the law.” – @JennaEllisEsq pic.twitter.com/UGn2ofbNsU

That brought up some questions, starting with this one:

By that standard any tweet about what somebody said they have in their possession could get tagged as “disputed” — any tweet from a Republican, that is.

Is Twitter just assuming Ellis might not be telling the truth?
P.s. Dear @Twitter – this claim is not disputed until you produce evidence & signed affidavits by witnesses disputing it & willing to swear to it under penalty of perjury. Until then your spreading false information.

Disputed by who? Hipster twitter? https://t.co/ipsS3zfAad

Too bad there wasn’t a “claim is disputed” tag back when Democrats were going nuts with the “Russia collusion” allegation — not that Twitter would have used it.
