Even though ex-President Trump is off of Twitter, his tweets are still abundant in federal legal filings. IJ Senior Attorney Jeff Rowes explains the First Amendment defenses (spoiler: he thinks there aren’t many) Rudy Giuliani might have to the new lawsuit filed against him by a Canadian voting machine company. But if that’s not international enough for you, IJ attorney Kirby Thomas West shares the saga of a family that thought they were free from diplomatic immunity, but instead failed to obtain citizenship for a women who went on to fight for ISIS, and lost her passport in the process—a decision affirmed by Presidential Tweet.
