Group Now Targeting Twitter For 'Climate Misinformation' Linked To Fusion GPS, --

... - and a study which found an increase in "climate change misinformation" on Twitter since Elon Musk bought the company.

Jones, a former staffer for Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein (of 'Chinese spy driver' fame), founded 'Advanced Democracy,' through which he shared a study with USA Today which claims that instances of "climate fraud," "climate hoax," and "climate scam" jumped over 300% in 2022.

As the Daily Caller notes, however, Advance Democracy has also funded groups pushing now-debunked claims involving the 2016 US election, as well as a group which pushed a disinformation campaign in the 2017 Alabama special Senate election.

The non-profit in 2020 paid $140,000 to Bean LLC, the parent company of Fusion GPS, for "research consulting" services. Fusion GPS was hired by Perkins Coie, a Democrat-linked law firm retained by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, to conduct opposition research on the Trump campaign between April 2016 and October 2016; Fusion GPS commissioned Christopher Steele to produce a now-discredited opposition research report on the Trump campaign, according to public tax filings.

Many of the Steele dossier's allegations have been subsequently debunked and proven false.
