Twitter user @donk_enby says she has obtained files from the site complete with GPS metadata to show exactly where they were taken
A hacker claims to have archived all of Parler's deleted posts and says they provide 'very incriminating' evidence in the wake of the deadly mob attack at the US Capitol.
Parler went offline shortly after 3am EST Monday after Amazon booted the platform off its web hosting service, effectively shutting the site down until it can find a new hosting partner or fund its own servers.
It had already vanished from the Apple and Google app stores after they cut ties with the right wing platform.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Now Twitter user @donk_enby says she has obtained files from the site complete with GPS metadata to show exactly where they were taken. That could prove helpful for law enforcement looking into the DC riot.
She told Gizmodo how she started with the aim of archiving every post since the Capitol riot on January 6. But when it emerged the site would be scrubbed she worked to pull 99 per cent of the content on the site.
Some of the clips 'may include things' from deleted and private posts, @donk_enby said. The data is also said to contain information about the site admins.

@donk_enby said: 'I want this to be a big middle finger to those who say hacking shouldn’t be political.'
'I am now crawling URLs of all videos uploaded to Parler. Sequentially from latest to oldest. These are the original, unprocessed, raw files as uploaded to Parler with all associated metadata,' she wrote Sunday.
She later added on Twitter Monday: 'only things that were available publicly via the web were archived. i don't have you e-mail address, phone or credit card number. unless you posted it yourself on parler.'
