The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is calling on the Department of Justice to consider charges against the social media provider Gab and their founder Andrew Torba for allowing free speech on the platform.
ADL president Johnathan Greenblatt is claiming that Gab is responsible for the U.S. Capitol siege because it encouraged peaceful protesters to broadcast footage on the social media platform.
“The January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was perhaps one of the darkest days in American history, but it also was a deliberate and coordinated criminal act,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO.
“In addition to holding individuals who broke the law accountable, the authorities must fully determine whether social media platforms, particularly Gab, bear a measure of responsibility for the attack as well.” he added.
