Devin Nunes, a Republican congressman from California and a strong supporter of Donald Trump, has revealed that he would resign from the US House of Representatives next month to join Trump’s new social media company.
In a letter to supporters on Monday, the Republican, who represents a rural California district, stated that he intended to seek a “new chance to fight for the most critical causes I believe in.”
Trump Media & Technology Group announced shortly after that Nunes will become the company’s CEO in January.
“The moment has come to reopen the internet and allow for the free flow of ideas and speech without restriction,” Nunes said in a statement. After failing to show that a crucial witness lied, the US Department of Justice is terminating its current investigation into the killing of Emmett Till, a Black teenager who was brutally abducted, tortured, and killed in 1955. Till’s family expressed dismay that the iconic lynching will continue to go unpunished.
During a press conference in Chicago, Till’s cousin, Rev Wheeler Parker, declared, “Today is a day we will never forget.” “We’ve been in anguish for 66 years… “I went through a lot.”
After a 2017 book reported Carolyn Bryant Donham, a white lady, as admitting she lied about till whistling and making sexual overtures toward her, the DOJ reopened the inquiry. However, no charges were brought against Donham, who informed the FBI that she had never recanted her allegations.
What did the Department of Justice say? It stated there was “insufficient evidence to show beyond a reasonable doubt that she lied to the FBI” not a news release on Monday.
What made the case so well-known? After Till’s mother insisted on an open coffin and Jet magazine published images of his brutalized body, his murder inflamed the civil rights movement.
