FALSE Claim by Tom Fitton (Judicial Watch): “President Trump is officially a political prisoner.”

Politifact Rating: False (Trump was not detained. He delivered remarks in Florida just hours after he was arraigned in New York on April 4. Political prisoners are targeted specifically for their political beliefs or activities and are often denied due process. They are frequently subjected to torture and mistreatment.)

No, former President Donald Trump is not ‘officially a political prisoner’

Judicial Watch Rating

Claim by A “new report” proves that an estimated “26.6 million people were injured, 1.36 million disabled, and 300,000 excess deaths can be attributed to COVID-19 vaccine damages in 2022 alone.”

Lead Stories rating: False (The Opposite is true: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provided data from a government report, which told a much different story. It said that tens of millions of COVID cases, more than a million hospitalizations and hundreds of thousands of deaths were prevented during the first year the vaccine was available. The report issued by the Department of Health and Human Services estimated total health benefits of nearly $3 trillion.)

Fact Check: COVID-19 Vaccine ‘Analysis’ Does NOT Prove $147 Billion In Economic Damage, Tens Of Millions Injured Or Disabled

Zerohedge Rating

FALSE Claim by Donald Trump (R): “As president, I have the right to declassify documents, and the process is automatic. If I take them with me, it’s automatic. Declassified.”

PolitiFact rating: False (The courts disagree)

TRUE Claim via Social Media and Conservative outlets: The daughter of the judge assigned to the hush-money criminal case of Republican former U.S. President Donald Trump worked for Democratic campaigns involving Vice President Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden.

Snopes rating: True (Judge Juan Merchan’s daughter, Loren Merchan, was the director of digital persuasion for Kamala Harris’ 2020 presidential campaign. His daughter has also worked, indirectly, for the Biden-Harris 2020 campaign through a communications firm that provides services for progressive campaigns.)

Did Daughter of Judge in Trump Hush-Money Case Work for Harris, Biden Campaigns?

Claim via Social Media: Climate change is caused by corporations using “weather modification patents.”

PolitiFact rating: False (Most of the world’s scientists agree that climate change is driven by greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere by human activity, such as fossil fuel burning.)

Human activity causes climate change? Yes, but from greenhouses gases, not weather modification

FALSE (International: Australia): Myocarditis cases were four per million before the pandemic but are now 25,000 cases per million.

Australian Associated Press rating: False (The figures are based on a variety of studies which have been misrepresented to make the claim.)

Fudged figures at the heart of myocarditis claim
