In my previous article, I mentioned that Andrew Bailey, the attorney general of Missouri, accused the Biden administration of working with media and tech companies to suppress the viewpoints of certain individuals. According to the lawsuit, the government labeled content as "misinformation," "disinformation," and "mal-information."
Some of the prominent individuals who were tried by the Biden administration to suppress their speech included Tucker Carlson, Robert Kennedy Jr., and Tomi Lahren. However, it was also revealed that the White House was pressuring social media platforms and Google to remove content that they deemed to be counter to the narrative.
As part of their investigation into the matter, the Republican attorneys general attempted to have Jen Psaki, who was a former press secretary at the White House, deposed. Unfortunately, the 5th Circuit Court prevented them from conducting the deposition. In its ruling, the court stated that her evidence did not meet the requirements of the deposition procedure.
The court ruled that Psaki's role as the press secretary was to inform the media about the administration's priorities instead of formulating or implementing policies. The court also stated that there was not enough evidence to show that she had unique information that could justify the removal of an executive officer.
The court also rejected the notion that Psaki was a part of the alleged scheme to suppress the speech of certain individuals. She made a statement in support of the removal of "COVID disinformation" on social media.
Jeff Landry, the attorney general of Louisiana, stated that his office had no issues with the court's ruling. He said that he was still planning on learning more about the matter.
I believe that the court should have allowed the deposition of Psaki as it revealed that several high-level officials in the Executive Office of the president were involved in the alleged campaign to suppress the speech. Despite the court's ruling, the Republican attorneys general still have the ability to collect more evidence. It is very unlikely for the Biden campaign to avoid this situation.
