Harris has also penned an official letter which notes her major points.

Sen. Kamala Harris has called for the suspension of President Donald Trump‘s Twitter account. According to USA Today, Harris sent a formal letter to the company’s CEO Jack Dorsey declaring that “Trump’s attacks on the whistleblower who helped sparked an impeachment inquiry violate the site’s rules.”

Her official letter declares the reasoning behind her call for suspension, the opening of her letter reads:

“I write to call your attention to activity that President Trump has been engaged in on his Twitter account, which appears to violate the terms of the user agreement that your company requires all users on the platform adhere to.”

Harris later pointed out that specific tweets Trump shared in the past week that “target, harass, and attempt to out the whistleblower who set forth credible allegations that the President has abused his power by urging a foreign government to investigate a political rival.” USA Today reports the whistleblower’s complaint alleges “Trump pressured the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.”

Later in the letter, Harris cited tweets in which Trump said a “leaker or spy” or “partisan operative” was responsible for the complaint. Additionally, he noted the whistleblower’s identity should be revealed to him. Harris noted it was necessary to “put the tweets in context because Trump had implied the whistleblower was a ‘spy’ who may have committed treason, and further implied that the punishment would be death.”

Lastly, USA Today shares that Harris said Trump had used tweets to intimidate the individual who have given the whistleblower information. Additionally, this led to the accusation of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff of treason.
