District Court Judge Terry Doughty granted a request by the National Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA) for depositions in the lawsuit, State of Missouri ex rel. Schmitt, et al. v. Biden, et al.
The NCLA joined the states' lawsuit in August, representing renowned epidemiologists Drs. Jayanta Bhattacharya and Martin Kulldorff, as well as Dr. Aaron Kheriaty and Jill Hines.
Earlier interrogatories in this lawsuit identified 45 federal officials from the Department of Homeland Security, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the CDC, Dr. Fauci's NIAID, the Office of the Surgeon General, and others who communicated with social media companies about "misinformation" and censorship.
The plaintiffs believe those named have specific individual details by virtue of their position. For example, CDC Chief of the Digital Media Branch Carol Crawford leads the agency's digital media activities. Interrogatory responses revealed Crawford was holding regular "Be On the Lookout" meetings with staff from the social media companies. In these meetings, attendees reviewed specific social media posts containing "misinformation." -PJ Media
For example, a look at the timeline shows that in February of 2020, Fauci, former NIH Director Francis Collins, and several other advisers were discussing a ZeroHedge article on a pre-print paper out of India suggesting that Covid-19 had similar features to HIV. Within a day, Twitter suspended us for publishing evidence that the Wuhan Institute of Virology - which was conducting NIH-funded experiments to make bat Covid more transmissible to humans - might have something to do with the exotic new Covid-19 strain that broke out across town at a wet market.
