Is this female supporter who Trump retweeted actually Jacob Wohl?

Jacob Wohl, a blundering pro-Trump operative known for his smears of political opponents, is supposedly operating a pro-Trump Twitter account, @ChatbyCC.

The account, which was retweeted by President Donald Trump today, relentlessly shares pro-Trump sentiments while tagging the commander-in-chief. Trump has retweeted the account at least six times. 

The Daily Dot previously reported that Wohl was operating Jack Burkman’s Twitter account. Burkman is a registered D.C. lobbyist who has aided Wohl in bogus smears

Twitter users have been quick to expose the account, whose owner they say is Wohl, noting how he’s claimed ownership of the account on Instagram. 

Wohl did not respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment, but has previously denied running the account, characterizing it as a “ludicrous question.” 

Twitter has not responded to the Daily Dot’s request for comment about the account. 

Previously, a Twitter spokesperson issued the following statement to the Daily Dot regarding why Wohl was permanently suspended from the platform: “Jacob Wohl’s account was suspended for multiple violations of the Twitter Rules, specifically creating and operating fake accounts.”

In screenshots of Wohl’s Instagram story, he gloated about the account and alluded to himself operating it when the president retweeted the account another time.

Wohl though has also spread misinformation about himself, so take this claim with a grain of salt, too.

Update 3:23pm CT, Dec. 16: Twitter suspended @ChatByCC after an inquiry from the Daily Dot, but did not respond to questions about the account’s provenance. On Instagram later in the day, Wohl claimed he was again behind the account.
