According to a report from Fox News, two Republican-lead states are suing President Joe Biden for colluding with Big tech to bury the Hunter Biden laptop story back in October of 2020, and for censoring information on COVID origins.
“Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry filed the lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana,” Fox reports. “The suit accuses top ranking government officials of working with the giant social media companies Meta, Twitter and YouTube ‘under the guise of combating misinformation’ in order to achieve greater censorship.”
Newly crowned Disinformation Czar Nina Jankowicz is named in the suit, as well as DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Jen Easterly are also named as defendants in the filing.
“Having threatened and cajoled social-media platforms for years to censor viewpoints and speakers disfavored by the Left, senior government officials in the Executive Branch have moved into a phase of open collusion with social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social-media platforms under the Orwellian guise of halting so-called ‘disinformation.’ ‘misinformation,’ and ‘malinformation,’” the filling claims.
