White supremacists Richard B. Spencer (L) and Chuck C. Johnson at the GOP convention

Last month we pointed out that infamous cyberstalker and overt white supremacist troll Chuck C. Johnson, banned for life from Twitter and suspended multiple times from Facebook for hate speech, was bragging that he was helping the Trump team vet potential political appointees.

Today, Ryan Mac and Matt Drange at Forbes have confirmed that these weren’t empty boasts; according to them, several sources in Trump’s transition team have now confirmed that Chuck C. Johnson Is Helping To Pick Your Next Government.

An internet troll, who was once called “the most hated man on the internet” and is banned from Twitter, is recommending candidates to serve in the Trump administration.

Charles “Chuck” Johnson, a controversial blogger and conservative online personality, has been pushing for various political appointees to serve under Donald Trump, according to multiple sources close to the President-elect’s transition team. While Johnson does not have a formal position, FORBES has learned that he is working behind the scenes with members of the transition team’s executive committee, including billionaire Trump donor Peter Thiel, to recommend, vet and give something of a seal of approval to potential nominees from the so-called “alt-right.”

[…]

FORBES verified Johnson’s involvement with multiple people close to the transition team who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. When asked about his work with the transition team, Johnson said last month that he had “no formal role,” and was vague regarding his level of influence. Johnson agreed to multiple phone and email interviews with FORBES in December, but he declined to return repeated follow-up requests for comment this month.

Johnson, of course, is well-known for harassing and outing rape victims, outing Ebola victims, hanging out with white supremacists and writing for white nationalist sites like Takimag and Vdare, and a host of other vile far right activities, and is notorious for threatening to sue anyone and everyone who criticizes him.

Just when you thought the Trump Horror couldn’t possibly get much worse.

Yesterday, Johnson was posting his usual racist fare at Facebook, defending “pharma bro” Martin Shkreli against “anti-white racism” and threatening to sue Twitter (again).
