Top Government Officials Sued Over Colluding With Big Tech…

(TheConservativeNews.org) – President Joe Biden and several top government officials have been sued for their role in the censorship of free speech. The attorney generals of two states are pursuing legal action against the administration, alleging that they “pressured and colluded” with tech companies to suppress information on Hunter Biden’s laptop, COVID and security issues.

The lawsuit against Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, outgoing White House press secretary Jen Psaki, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and others was filed on Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.

The lawsuit alleges that Biden and his top officials colluded with the tech giants “under the guise of combating misinformation” as a pretense to silence critics and promote censorship by using the “public-private partnership” as the regime’s muscle.

The lawsuit states that these officials have engaged in “one of its greatest assaults by federal government officials in the Nation’s history,” as officials “coerced, threatened, and pressured social media platforms to censor disfavored speakers and viewpoints by using threats of adverse government action,” according to the 86-page filing.

Also named in the lawsuit are HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and Biden’s newly-minted commissar of the Disinformation Governance Board, Nina Jankowicz.

Attorney General Schmitt announced the legal action via Twitter on Thursday.

“Missouri and Louisiana just filed suit against Joe Biden, Jen Psaki, Dr. Fauci, and other top-ranking officials for allegedly colluding with social media companies to suppress freedom of speech under the guise of combating ‘misinformation,’” he wrote.

In another tweet along with a link to the court filing, “Schmitt added, The lawsuit, filed today, alleges that the Biden Administration colluded with and pressured social media giants Meta, Twitter, and Youtube to suppress and censor free speech on topics like the Hunter Biden laptop story, the Lab Leak Theory, and more.”

Missouri’s top legal official went on to give a series of examples including Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, the explosive contents of which could have affected the 2020 election had it not been suppressed by the media and Silicon Valley.

Schmitt also brought up how dissenting voices on COVID were censored at the behest of Dr. Fauci.

“Beginning in February 2020, Facebook and other social media platforms began aggressively censoring speech about the Lab Leak Theory, and Facebook updated its content moderation on COVID-19 to include ‘false’ and ‘debunked’ claims that COVID-19 was man-made or manufactured,” he wrote.
