Mother Jones: A Major Trump Forum Scrubs Its Archives of Thousands of Pre-Riot Posts

Mother Jones: A Major Trump Forum Scrubs Its Archives of Thousands of Pre-Riot Posts. “In the days ahead of the January 6 Capitol riot, there were warnings, but no guarantee that the day would turn violent. But users of TheDonald.win, a major online pro-Trump forum, were preparing for a fight, posting maps of the Capitol and swapping messages about being ready to die. In the wake of the carnage, law enforcement identified TheDonald.win as a key planning platform for the insurrectionists. And on Inauguration Day, the forum established a new domain, rebranding as Patriots.win. Alongside that transition, thousands of posts from lead up to the riot have disappeared from the site as though they were never there.”
