In the suit, Missouri Attorney General Schmitt pounds away on the Biden regime for both conspiring with and also compelling Big Tech social media companies, to censor millions of Americans on their social media accounts through a governmentally created social media censorship program.
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt posted this report on latest developments in the lawsuit the Missouri AG website on Tuesday.
Yesterday, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry served discovery requests on top Biden Administration Officials and today served third-party subpoenas on social media giants Twitter, Meta, Youtube, Instagram, and LinkedIn. The discovery requests and subpoenas come as part of Missouri’s and Louisiana’s lawsuit against the Biden Administration for allegedly colluding with social media giants to censor and suppress freedom of speech. Earlier this month, a federal court granted Missouri’s and Louisiana’s request for expedited discovery and documents, and yesterday Missouri and Louisiana served those discovery requests.
“In May, Missouri and Louisiana filed a landmark lawsuit against top-ranking Biden Administration officials for allegedly colluding with social media giants to suppress free speech on topics like COVID-19 and election security,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “Earlier this month, a federal court granted our motion for expedited discovery, allowing us to collect important documents from Biden Administration officials. Yesterday, we served discovery requests and today served third-party subpoenas to do exactly that. We will fight to get to the bottom of this alleged collusion and expose the suppression of freedom of speech by social media giants at the behest of top-ranking government officials.”
Discovery requests were served asking for information and documents from Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Jen Easterly and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, and Nina Jankowicz.
Third-party subpoenas were also served to Twitter, Youtube, Meta, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

A media release from Schmitt, a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination for the seat of retiring U.S. Senator Roy Blunt, said information was requested in identifying all communications with any social media platform relating to content modulation and/or misinformation.
The suit requests all communications with Mark Zuckerberg from Jan. 1, 2020, to the present. Also requested were any communications to any social media platform relating to the “Great Barrington Declaration,” a letter published in October 2020 in response to COVID-19 policies that recommended “focused protection” — an approach to reaching herd immunity by allowing those at minimal risk of death to live normal lives by building up immunity through natural infection while protecting those at highest risk.
