Federal Judge: Psaki Must Testify in Case on Censorship Collusion w/ Big Tech

'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...'

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) President Joe Biden’s former press secretary, Jen Psaki, will be forced to testify in a lawsuit alleging the Biden administration colluded with social media titan Meta, in efforts to crush free speech and punish political dissent.

The lawsuit alleges that the collusion occurred with the goal of furthering Big Tech’s censorship in our current era of cancel culture.

The lawsuit was brought by two Republican attorneys general. Eric Schmitt, attorney general of Missouri and Jeff Landry, attorney general of Louisiana, sought to protect the rights of citizens against Biden who, they argued, was colluding with Big Tech.

“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 said.

“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 said. “We’ll keep pressing for the truth.”

Judge Terry Doughty, a federal judge of the Western District of Louisiana, on Monday rejected a motion by Psaki’s attorneys to block a court-ordered deposition, according to Fox News. Doughty said the public needs to “determin[e] whether First Amendment free speech rights have been suppressed.”

This ruling follows another loss of Psaki’s. On Friday a second judge dismissed her request to avoid being subpoenaed.

John J. Veccione, a senior counsel for a firm supporting the suit argued that the judges acted correctly.

“Ms. Psaki’s effort to eliminate or delay her deposition in this action had failed because of the swift action of two judges in widely dispersed courts, one in Virginia and one in Louisiana, and by the implausibility of her reasons for not testifying as to Federal efforts to censure social media that made quick resolution possible,” Veccione said.
