A court document reveals that Jack Smith obtained a search warrant for Donald Trump’s Twitter account |

Newly released court documents reveal that special counsel Jack Smith obtained a search warrant for former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account in January.

Twitter delayed compliance and did not fully produce the requested information on the “@realDonaldTrump” account until three days after the court deadline, prompting a federal judge to hold Twitter in contempt and issue a penalty of $350,000, according to a document disclosed Wednesday. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upheld the lower court’s decision in July.

The district court initially issued a confidentiality order barring Twitter from notifying anyone about the order, which Twitter challenged as a violation of the First Amendment and the Stored Communications Act.
