(JustPatriots.com)- Last week, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt revealed explosive evidence showing that the Biden administration was colluding with Big Tech to censor so-called COVID “disinformation.”
The documents, which were obtained as part of an ongoing lawsuit filed in May by Missouri and Louisiana, reveal that administration officials were in direct communication with social media platforms to coordinate COVID messaging while actively working to suppress the free speech rights of American citizens.
In a lengthy Twitter thread last Thursday, Schmitt posted a series of emails obtained that reveal the extent of the Biden administration’s direct involvement with Big Tech in what he described as “a vast censorship enterprise.”
As part of discovery in the lawsuit, the DOJ disclosed that 45 federal officials had direct communications with social media companies. But there were more officials involved than the DOJ admitted.
Facebook’s parent company Meta identified an additional 32 federal officials, including members of the White House, who communicated with them regularly. YouTube identified 11 officials, including those in the White House, many of whom were not disclosed by the DOJ.
The documents Schmitt obtained include evidence that the CDC wanted to hold monthly “debunking” meetings with Facebook to ensure the platform was censoring the free speech of users.
Among the documents obtained by Schmitt was an eye-opening email exchange in which Clarke E. Humphrey, the digital director for Biden’s COVID response team asked a redacted Facebook employee to remove a Tony Fauci parody Instagram account.
Less than a minute later, the Facebook employee responded to Humphrey’s email, saying “Yep, on it!”
For years, we have been told that Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social media platforms are “private companies” therefore the First Amendment does not apply.
But given the documents obtained by Eric Schmitt, the reality is quite different.
This is documented proof that the Biden administration was using social media platforms as proxy government censors in clear violation of the First Amendment.
Last week, Eric Schmitt appeared on Fox News to discuss the explosive documents:
