YouTube on Wednesday permanently banned conservative podcaster and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino.
Bongino’s secondary YouTube account had been suspended for violating terms of service for ‘spreading Covid misinformation.’
YouTube permanently banned Bongino because he uploaded a video to his main channel while his other channel was suspended.
Bongino’s main YouTube channel had nearly 900,000 subscribers.

YouTube on Wednesday permanently banned conservative commentator Dan Bongino from the platform, saying he attempted to evade a previous suspension.
The Fox host uploaded a video to his main channel while his secondary channel, which primarily hosted short clips from his digital radio show, was actively suspended for violating YouTube’s COVID-19 misinformation policy.
“When a channel receives a strike, it is against our Terms of Service to post content or use another channel to circumvent the suspension,” a YouTube spokesperson told The Hill.
Both of Bongino’s channels have been removed and he will not be able to create a new one in the future, the platform said.
The YouTube spokesperson confirmed that attempts to make new channels “associated with his name” will also be denied.
Dan Bongino currently has more than 2 million subscribers to his Rumble channel, “The Dan Bongino Show.”
