Rogue Panel of Appellate Judges Steps In and Blocks Jen Psaki’s Deposition in Missouri and Louisiana Lawsuit to Protect Biden Regime

By Jim Hoft
The Gateway Pundit previously reported in May, 2022 that the Missouri and Louisiana Attorneys General filed a lawsuit (Missouri v. Biden) against the Biden Administration, including Joe Biden himself, Anthony Fauci, the Department of Homeland Security and nearly a dozen federal agencies and Secretaries.

Republican Attorneys General Sue Joe Biden For Colluding with Big Tech to Censor Information on Hunter’s ‘Laptop From Hell’ and Covid

The suit alleges a massive coordinated effort by the Deep State, the permanent administrative state, to work with Big Tech to censor and manipulate Americans – from average citizens to news outlets – on issues including the Hunter Biden Laptop from Hell, 2020 Election Integrity, COVID-19 origin and extent skepticism, COVID-19 vaccine skepticism, among other issues.

As Gateway Pundit has previously written, the Attorneys General, along with Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft and several other individuals sued the Biden Administration – including Anthony Fauci – for censoring speech surrounding COVID-19, among a large number of other topics.

One of the people sued was former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.   As press secretary, Psaki spread daily COVID and other misinformation and disinformation, doing the bidding of the Deep State oligarchs who actually run the United States.
Psaki repeatedly stated before media that the Biden administration was pressuring Big Tech to censor the speech of millions of Americans, where it contradicted the official Deep State narrative.  She even issued not-so-veiled threats against Big Tech if it would not censor Wrongthink.
Because of this, Psaki was sued in the Missouri v. Biden case, and we and the Attorneys General for Missouri and Louisiana sought her deposition.  To the great credit of the federal district court (the trial court level) in Louisiana, the court granted us leave to take Psaki’s deposition.  This prompted her lawyers to repeatedly petition a small panel of judges on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, asking them to block the deposition.  The panel of judges initially issued an order to the trial court, demanding that the lower court try to find some other means of allowing some of the information to come out, short of a deposition.
Again, the trial court valiantly stood its ground and found that Psaki’s deposition must be taken, because she was on the record repeatedly seeking the censorship of millions of Americans in her capacity as White House flak.
TODAY, however, the same panel of Deep-State-boot-licking 5th Circuit judges (Stephen Higginson: appointed by Obama; Edith Clement: appointed by George H.W. Bush; and Leslie Southwick: appointed by W.) formally blocked Jen Psaki’s deposition, using a procedural move that prevents the matter from being appealed to the FULL 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Here’s a copy of the bogus, corrupt order.
As this ruling demonstrates, in America, there are exceptions for the rich and powerful – and rules and liability for everyone else.  If this were a run of the mill case, this panel of 5th Circuit judges wouldn’t have given the issue the time of day.  But, because the Deep State wills it, Psaki lives to lose another day.
No one should have faith in the judicial system anymore: it’s staffed by transparently political hacks.
