Isaac said that between late July 2019 and October 14th, 2020, he interacted with the FBI and Robert Costello several times. Costello serves as the attorney for Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer. The NY Post published its article after receiving information from Giuliani, the lawsuit stated. Isaac also stressed that he didn’t know the publication had information from the computer’s hard drive.
Shortly after blocking the URL to the Post’s story, Twitter altered its hacked materials policy. The website decided not to remove hacked content anymore unless it’s shared directly by hackers and to label tweets to provide context instead of blocking their URLs from being shared. It wasn’t just Twitter that took steps to limit the story’s reach, though. Facebook also reduced its distribution until it had been reviewed by the social network’s fact-checking partners.
In addition to suing Twitter for $500 million in punitive damages, Isaac also wants the court to require Twitter to “make a public retraction of all false statements.”
