    Twitter exec in charge of effort to fact-check Trump has history of anti-Trump posts

    Twitter's "Head of Site Integrity" Yoel Roth boasts on his LinkedIn that he is in charge of "developing and enforcing Twitter’s rules," like the one that led Twitter to slap a new warning label on two of President Trump's tweets concerning mail-in balloting on Tuesday -- posts that Twitter conspicuously deemed "misleading," even though bipartisan panels of experts have found that absentee balloting increases the risk of voter fraud.

    Here's a sampling of Roth's tweets that by any account should call into question his ability to be impartial in determinations on Twitter's “site integrity.”

    Here is the original Trump tweet that was flagged by Twitter:

    John Solomon reports:

    Twitter plastered a message on both of Trump's tweets that says "Get the facts about mail-in ballots." That message links to a page that pushes back against the president's assertions. 

    "On Tuesday, President Trump made a series of claims about potential voter fraud after California Governor Gavin Newsom announced an effort to expand mail-in voting in California during the COVID-19 pandemic," the page says. "These claims are unsubstantiated, according to CNN, Washington Post and others. Experts say mail-in ballots are very rarely linked to voter fraud."

    The page calls the president's statements false: "Trump falsely claimed that mail-in ballots would lead to 'a Rigged Election.' However, fact-checkers say there is no evidence that mail-in ballots are linked to voter fraud," the page says. "Trump falsely claimed that California will send mail-in ballots to 'anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there.' In fact, only registered voters will receive ballots," the page also says.
