Conservative journalist and activist James O'Keefe announced Tuesday night that his Twitter account has been suspended for identifying a Bernie Sanders staffer who was caught on video speaking favorably of Soviet gulags and swearing widespread violence if Sanders does not win the election.

In their message to O'Keefe, Twitter claimed that he violated the social media company's rule about "posting private information," saying, "You may not publish or post other people's private information without their express authorization and permission."

O'Keefe countered, saying, "The information we reported is in the public domain, there is nothing ‘private' about it."

The Project Veritas boss's account will reportedly remain locked until he deletes the tweet in which he identified the Sanders staffer.
