Acting Secretary of State for Homeland Security Chad Wolf has beaten up Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a letter accusing him of censoring government officials who “endanger national security.”
Wolf’s letter on Friday came after Twitter blocked acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan’s official account from what the company described as “hateful content.”
Morgan tweeted on Wednesday praising progress on the southern border wall: “Every mile helps us keep gang members, killers, sexual predators and drugs from entering our country. It’s a fact that walls work. ‚
Twitter suspended his account for a day and then claimed the decision had been overturned on appeal. Wolf blew up the company, saying Twitter lied about the appeal process and didn’t restore Morgan’s account until after the controversy went public.

Acting Secretary of State for Homeland Security Chad Wolf (above) slammed Twitter’s CEO in a letter accusing him of censoring government officials who “endangered national security.”
“Twitter’s behavior in censoring US government officials also endangers national security,” Wolf said in a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey (above Wednesday).
‘Twitter actually denied CBP’s appeal. Twitter only turned around after controversy and embarrassment escalated, “Wolf said in a footnote to the letter.
“There was no reason to remove Mr. Morgan’s tweet from your platform other than ideological disagreements with the announcer. Such censorship is worrying, ”Wolf wrote in the letter.
“Twitter’s behavior in censoring US government officials also endangers national security,” said Wolf.
“It is dangerous and harmful for a publisher like this to arbitrarily and unfoundedly decide that the facts and guidelines of a particular presidential administration” constitute violence – in order to censor it, “he continued.
Wolf accused Twitter of “sabotaging public discourse on important national security and internal security issues.”
Wolf’s letter on Friday came after Twitter blocked incumbent CBP commissioner Mark Morgan (above) from making what the company described as “hateful content”.
The tweet can no longer be seen on Morgan’s Twitter. Instead, it has a notification from Twitter in its place that says, “This tweet is no longer available” and asks users to “learn more” why
Wolf wrote: “It is clear that Twitter’s gross censorship was intentional and not accidental.”
“I urge you to pledge never again to censor any content on your platform and to impede the inalienable right of Americans to communicate with each other and with their government and officials, including the thousands of law enforcement officers at DHS who are vigilant and hardworking work on it Protect your security every day, ”concluded Wolf.
Twitter didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com late Friday.
Morgan’s tweet was removed just hours after Dorsey testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he faced allegations by Republican senators of partisan bias and political censorship.
“They didn’t lock me out, they locked you out,” Morgan said at a press conference Thursday, referring to Twitter which prevented him from speaking to the American people.
“They have their own ideology, their own belief system, imposed to justify keeping the truth from the American people because it did not fit their very obvious and transparent agenda,” Morgan said.
The comments came during a press conference Thursday morning in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley to celebrate the completion of 400 miles of Trump’s border wall.
The memorial ceremony was held just five days before election day to showcase progress on what is perhaps the most famous election promise made by the president four years ago.
Morgan described the feat as an “incredible milestone” and described the wall system along the border between the USA and Mexico as “an essential part of a decades-long, multi-faceted strategy of infrastructure, technology and personnel”.

In a separate controversy, Twitter stepped down Friday, unblocking the New York Post’s main account after a two-week stalemate on the newspaper’s articles about Hunter Biden’s overseas business.
The social media company said it would reverse its previous request that the post delete tweets referencing the Biden article.
Twitter had already lifted its original ban on tweeting links to the Post articles, but said it would not retrospectively change its decision to suspend the newspaper’s account by insisting that the original tweets be deleted.
The social media company had justified its ban on politically charged reporting on the Biden family with a ban on the distribution of hacked material.
The Post articles were based on documents from a laptop allegedly left in a repair shop by Hunter and which never retrieved them.
