Diamond And Silk Repeat Dubious Statements To Congress Under Oath

Donald J. Trump Rally In Fort Lauderdale

The pro-Trump, conservative, social media personalities known as "Diamond and Silk" claim Facebook has treated them like they're a danger to the world.

"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.

"Ms. Hardaway, I think you stated on the record today, at least three times, quote, 'We were not paid by the Trump campaign, '" Jeffries said. Lee pressed. "Not $1,274.94?" Trump has long lauded the pair, inviting them to his campaign rallies and to the White House for Oval Office visits.

There's a slight problem: according to documents the Trump campaign filled with the Federal Election Commission, Diamond & Silk were paid $1,274.94 in November of 2016 for "field consulting."

At one point, Jeffries reminded the sisters that they were under oath under penalty of perjury. In April, Diamond and Silk claimed that Facebook censored them.

"Was it also an enforcement error for 6 months, 29 days, 5 hours, 40 minutes, and 43 seconds of chatting and emailing about the same issue and being told that my issue would be escalated to a Facebook team, the Spam Team, the Technical Team, the Appeal Team, the Internal Team and the Policy Team only to be told on January 8, 2018 that a request was never sent off?".

Wilder Makes $50 Million Offer To Joshua
Wilder would like the fight to be in the United States , but his promoter told Sky Sports that is not a deal-breaking point. While he is here, he, Finkel and Haymon are scheduled to meet Friday to discuss a Joshua-Wilder deal.

But Diamond and Silk on Thursday questioned his statements and said their page is still losing traction because of the "liberal" label. Because we support the president?

"They've become incredible", Trump said. And presumably, this was a document filed with genuiness and authenticity by the campaign of the president that you so love and so I'm just trying to figure out who is lying here.

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.

Democratic Rep. Hakeen Jeffries from NY pressed the duo on Thursday about this FEC report and they said that payment was a reimbursement for travel expenses to a Trump campaign event.

Jeffries concluded his short feud with the self-proclaimed "most outspoken and loyal" Trump supporters by saying, "I respect your game".
