Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt says documents he and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry received as a result of a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) show there is a vast “Censorship Enterprise” between a multitude of federal agencies and social media platforms.
“We have already received a number of documents that clearly prove that the federal government has an incestuous relationship with social media companies and clearly coordinate to censor freedom of speech, but we’re not done,” said Schmidt in a news release on September 1.
The DOJ is withholding documents from discovery, says Schmidt.
“The Department of Justice is cowering behind executive privilege and has refused to turn over communications between the highest-ranking Biden Administration officials and social media companies,” said Schmidt. “That’s why, yesterday, we asked the Court to compel the Department of Justice to produce those records. We’re just getting started—stay tuned.”
