Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt will depose Dr. Anthony Fauci in their lawsuit against the federal government for allegedly colluding with social media companies to censor speech.
“We all deserve to know how involved Dr. Fauci was in the censorship of the American people during the COVID pandemic; tomorrow, I hope to find out,” said Attorney General Landry on Tuesday. “And I will continue fighting for the truth as it relates to Big Government colluding with Big Tech to stifle free speech.”
“(Wednesday), along with my counterpart from Louisiana, my Office and I will depose Dr. Anthony Fauci in our lawsuit against the Biden Administration for allegedly colluding with social media companies to censor freedom of speech,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “Since we filed our landmark lawsuit, we have uncovered documents and discovery that show clear coordination between the Biden Administration and social media companies on censoring speech, but we’re not done yet. We plan to get answers on behalf of the American people. Stay tuned.”
Louisiana and Missouri filed this landmark lawsuit in May of 2022 and have since uncovered troves of discovery showing that the federal government and the Biden Administration have worked with social media companies to censor speech on topics like COVID-19 and other issues.
A federal court granted Louisiana and Missouri’s request for depositions of top Biden Administration officials on October 21, 2022. The deposition of FBI agent Elvis Chan is scheduled for next week, and Louisiana and Missouri plan to continue to push for depositions of key Biden Administration officials.
Additionally, a magistrate judge in Virginia rejected former White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s attempt to quash a subpoena in this case and transferred that dispute back to Louisiana.
