In an explosive interview on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, two-time Academy Award-nominated actor James Woods described the Democratic National Committee as a bunch of “rats” and “corrupt, vile vermin” and vowed to sue the DNC after evidence contained in Elon Musk’s Twitter files showed that the DNC pressured Twitter to violate the actor’s civil liberties by censoring his speech.
Addressing President Joe Biden and the DNC, Woods said: “I am not afraid of you. And I’m coming for you.”
The Twitter files, which Musk released late Friday to independent left-wing journalist Matt Taibbi, showed that DNC officials ordered Twitter to remove a tweet from Woods less than a month before the 2020 presidential election. Woods’ tweet is believed to have referenced the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.

On Tucker Carlson, Woods expressed outrage over the act of censorship as well as the left’s attempt to ruin his five decade-spanning Hollywood career for being an outspoken conservative.
“I’ve been a target of these people for six years,” the actor said. “They have destroyed my career. They have destroyed my livelihood. They’ve destroyed my faith in a country that my family has defended in the military since the Revolutionary War.”
Woods described the First Amendment as the most sacred right for Americans.
“The government of the United States conspired to take my free speech and throw it in the gutter,” he said.
“And there’s something they should fear more than anything they have ever imagined in their wildest dreams, the most dangerous man to these corrupt vile, vermin is an American who is not afraid of them. And Joe Biden, and all those rats who work with you at the DNC, to close down my speech — I am not afraid of you. And I am coming for you.”
Woods praised Musk, saying the new Twitter owner “very possibly has saved America.” The actor repeated the sentiment in a subsequent tweet Friday.
Thank you, @elonmusk, for giving back to all Americans, and voices around the world, the most precious of gifts – free and open speech.
I admire you and I salute you, sir.

As Breitbart News reported, Elon Musk released internal Twitter discussions about censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story Friday night via journalist Matt Taibbi.
Among the revelations was that there was widespread internal and external concern at the suppression of the story, a decision made without CEO Jack Dorsey’s knowledge and spearheaded by Vijaya Gadde, then the head of Trust & Safety — Twitter’s top censor.
House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Rep. James Comer (R-KY) has promised to haul every Twitter employee who was involved in the handling of the story before the committee.
