    The man who may become Missouri's next GOP senator has targeted President Biden's Department of Justice, asking a court to force the DOJ to reveal communications between high-ranking Biden Administration officials and major social media companies.

    Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, the GOP senatorial candidate, joined Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry to file a Joint Statement on Discovery Disputes, to ask the Louisiana District Court to force the communications between officials in the White House and Department of State and major social media companies to be revealed.

    "Missouri and Louisiana filed a landmark lawsuit back in May that seeks to expose how top Biden Administration officials allegedly colluded with social media companies to censor freedom of speech on a number of topics, including COVID-19. We won in court in July, and the Court required the Biden Administration to turn over communications between federal officials and social media companies," Schmitt stated.

    "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, he continued. "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. 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."

    The plaintiffs claim a "Censorship Enterprise" was implemented in various federal agencies. They add that although the government identified scores of officials at DHS, CISA, the CDC, NIAID, and the Office of the Surgeon General who had communicated with social media platforms, no information had been disclosed about any federal officials at other federal agencies who had done so.

    "Meta, for example, has disclosed that at least 32 federal officials-including senior officials at the FDA, the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, and the White House-have communicated with Meta about content moderation on its platforms, many of whom were not disclosed in response to Plaintiffs' interrogatories to Defendants," the statement charged. "YouTube disclosed eleven federal officials engaged in such communications, including officials at the Census Bureau and the White House, many of whom were also not disclosed by Defendants."

    The joint statement accused the "Censorship Enterprise" "rises to the highest levels of the U.S. Government, including numerous White House officials."
