Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, alongside Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, has filed a lawsuit against several key players in the Biden Administration for allegedly working with social media giants such as Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube to censor and suppress free speech.
“Missourians and Americans use social media platforms, which are now ubiquitous in our modern society, to discuss topics like the efficacy of masks and the veracity of the lab-leak theory,” Schmitt said in a press release. “In direct contravention to the First Amendment and freedom of speech, the Biden Administration has been engaged in a pernicious campaign to both pressure social media giants to censor and suppress speech and work directly with those platforms to achieve that censorship in a misguided and Orwellian campaign against ‘misinformation.’”
The lawsuit names several top officials from the Biden Administration, including Biden himself, Press Secretary Jen Psaki and Chief Medical Advisor to the President Anthony Fauci.
