    Judge Orders Psaki to Testify on Biden Admin’s Big Tech Censorship Efforts

    Published on

    After a federal judge has ordered her to testify on the part Democratic President Joe Biden’s administration played in Big Tech’s efforts to suppress Americans on social media, former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki lost her legal struggle.

    The decision was handed down on Monday by Judge Terry Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana.

    The defense team for Psaki has been fighting to keep her away from the case.

    However, Doughty rejected Psaki’s attorney’s request to quash a court order requiring her to testify.

    The judge stated that it is in the interest of the public to “determining whether First Amendment free speech rights have been suppressed.”

    Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana, two Republican attorneys general, brought the complaint on the grounds that high-ranking members of the Biden administration had suppressed free speech on social media sites “under the guise of combating misinformation.”

    Psaki and Biden’s main medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci was ordered to appear in the lawsuit by Doughty on October 21.

    “After finding documentation of a collusive relationship between the Biden administration and social media companies to censor free speech, we immediately filed a motion to get these officials under oath,” Schmitt stated following the October decision.

    “It is high time we shine a light on this censorship enterprise and force these officials to come clean to the American people, and this ruling will allow us to do just that,” he continued.

    “We’ll keep pressing for the truth.”

    According to legal expert Jonathan Turley, the claims stated in the case were supported by evidence.

    According to Turley, “The concern for free speech advocates is that there is a type of censorship by surrogate, that Democratic leaders and other groups have used social media to silence opposing voices, and you’ve had a number of people who’ve been banned on social media or had tweets taken down that have been proven correct.”

    Concerning potential coordination between the government and social media corporations, a law scholar at George Washington University stated, “The government is not allowed to do indirectly what it is prohibited from doing directly.”

    As part of the case, the Biden administration was compelled to give over emails pertaining to social media filtering in July.

    The emails, according to critics, showed that the White House took part in an effort to stifle free expression.
