Democrat WH Adviser Sues To Remove Telegram From App Stores

Start

Longtime Democrat adviser Marc Ginsberg has sued Apple and Google demanding they remove Telegram from app stores.

The January 17th lawsuit comes from the former aide to Senator Ted Kennedy, White House Liaison under Jimmy Carter, and Ambassador to Morocco under Bill Clinton and seeks to give Telegram the same fate as Parler.

“Telegram is being used to intimidate, threaten and coerce members of the public,” says Ginsberg’s complaint about the app, which has quickly become an alternative social media network to Twitter.

“Telegram continues to enable extremist incitement in its platform, promoting political violence as extremist groups and individuals migrate to Telegram following Apple’s suspension of Parler,” the complaint alleges.

Ginsberg’s alleges that “as a result of Telegram remaining on the App Store, he and others like him have faced economic losses and emotional distress as one of the groups being targeted by the app’s users,” a summary notes.

Ginsberg has also filed a similar suit against Google’s parent company Alphabet to get Telegram removed from the app store.
