AGs Slam White House Over Multiple Examples Of Big Tech Collusion To
Censor Dissent

At least two state Attorneys General have slammed the White House for
colluding with social media companies to censor dissent.

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey highlighted this effort in a
Friday Twitter thread, noting how the Biden White House directed
Twitter and Facebook to censor Robert Kennedy Jr., Tucker Carlson and
Tomi Lahren.

In another example, YouTube assures a government employee that they
use machine learning to 'reduce the recommendations' of wrongthink.

Meanwhile, Louisiana AG Jeff Landry slammed the Biden White House over
the Tucker Carlson censorship.

As Tom Ozimek of The Epoch Times notes;

Landry shared the document—an email exchange between White House
Director of Digital Strategy Rob Flaherty and an unidentified Facebook
employee—in a Jan. 7 post on Twitter, with the comment: “Rob Flaherty
tells facebook to censor” Tucker Carlson.

“Since we’ve been on the phone—the top post about vaccines today is
[T]ucker Carlson saying they don’t work. Yesterday it was Tomi Lehren
[sic] saying she won’t take one,” Flaherty reportedly said in the
message to the Facebook staffer, whose name and email address have
been redacted.

“This is exactly why I want to know what ‘Reduction’ actually looks
like—if ‘reduction’ means ‘pumping our most vaccine hesitant audience
with [T]ucker Carlson saying it doesn’t work’ then … I’m not sure it’s
reduction!” Flaherty continued, per the document shared by Landry.

Signaling action regarding the request, the unidentified Facebook
employee then reportedly wrote: “Running this down now.”

The Epoch Times has reached out with a request for comment to Facebook
parent Meta, Fox News Channel, and the White House, but no reply was
received by publication.
‘Hard Evidence’ of Government Collusion With Big Tech

Landry, together with Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, sued the
Biden administration in May 2022 for allegedly pressuring and
colluding with social media giants to suppress free speech.

Schmitt on Jan. 5 was sworn in as a U.S. senator and has been replaced
in his role as Missouri attorney general by Andrew Bailey.

Bailey took to Twitter on Jan. 7 to say that when he took the oath of
office, he swore he would protect the Constitution and explained

“We now have hard evidence that President Biden’s Administration
colluded with social media companies to censor differing viewpoints
and silence ‘misinformation’ that was later deemed true,” Bailey wrote
in a series of posts.

Bailey shared a screenshot of an email from White House COVID-19
Digital Director Clarke E. Humphrey to an unidentified Twitter
employee with the subject line “Flagging Hank Aaron misinfo” and
requesting the Twitter staff to “get moving on the process for having
it removed ASAP.”

In her request, Humphrey provided a link to a Twitter post by Robert
F. Kennedy Jr., a known critic of the Biden administration’s narrative
on COVID-19 vaccines.

The offending tweet links to an article on the website of the
Children’s Health Defense, an activist group chaired by Kennedy Jr.
that left-leaning Wikipedia labels as “one of the main sources of
misinformation on vaccines.”

The article, from Jan. 22, 2021, says Aaron died 18 days after
receiving a COVID-19 vaccine of an “undisclosed cause” and cites
Kennedy Jr. as saying that his “tragic death is part of a wave of
suspicious deaths among elderly closely following administration of
COVID vaccines.”

About a week later, the Fulton County Medical Examiner released
Aaron’s cause of death as “natural causes” and that he didn’t have any
COVID-19 symptoms, with his medical history listing prostate issues
and hypertension.

Besides requesting action on Kennedy Jr.’s tweet, Humphrey also added
a request to “keep an eye out for tweets that fall in this same
genre,” per the screenshot shared by Bailey.

The Epoch Times has reached out to Twitter with a request for comment.
‘The Truth No Longer Matters to the White House’

Bailey also shared screenshots of several other messages that he said
show collusion between Big Tech and the government to suppress free
speech, including another message from Flaherty to an unidentified
Facebook employee in which the White House official demands
“assurances” that the social media company is taking actions “to
ensure you’re not making our country’s vaccine hesitancy problem

“The truth no longer matters to the White House,” Bailey captioned the post.

“These emails confirm what we’ve known all along,” Bailey wrote. “The
Biden Admin. has been colluding with social media companies to stifle
opposing voices.”

“I will continue to push back against this blatant attack on the 1st
Amendment with every tool at my disposal,” he added.

With Schmitt gone as attorney general, Bailey has taken his place as a
plaintiff in the lawsuit against President Joe Biden, then-White House
press secretary Jen Psaki, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and other administration

The lawsuit claims that Biden and other government officials worked
with Big Tech companies like Meta, Twitter, and YouTube to censor
conversation around matters relating to everything from COVID-19 and
election integrity to the Hunter Biden laptop story, doing so under
the guise of battling “misinformation.”

The two Republican-led states accuse Biden and other officials named
in the lawsuit of “falsely” attacking the Hunter Biden laptop story as

The story, which was first published by the New York Post in October
2020, detailed the contents of a laptop linked to Hunter Biden,
President Joe Biden’s son. The laptop was abandoned in a Delaware
computer repair shop and included compromising pictures and emails
regarding allegedly corrupt foreign business deals.

Twitter labeled the story as “potentially harmful” and locked the New
York Post’s main Twitter account while also blocking Twitter users
from publishing the link to the story.
GOP to Investigate ‘Weaponization of the Federal Government’

It comes as House Republicans have pledged to investigate allegations
of collusion between federal agencies and private companies, and to do
so, they’re looking to establish a subcommittee on the “weaponization”
of the federal government.

Republicans have put forward a House rules package, which includes a
proposal to create a House Judiciary select subcommittee on the
“Weaponization of the Federal Government.”

The proposal for the subcommittee comes after Republicans recently
signaled that they want a top-to-bottom investigation of the FBI after
the “Twitter Files” disclosed that the agency pressured Twitter to
censor Americans’ free speech.

Incoming House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has
suggested that the FBI needs to be investigated in the same way it was
in the 1970s, when the Church Committee investigated abuses by the
CIA, FBI, Internal Revenue Service, and the National Security Agency.

The committee, led by then-Sen. Frank Church (D-Idaho), revealed the
now-infamous CIA MKULTRA program, which involved the drugging and
torture of American citizens in experimentation on mind control.

“We’ve been looking at a Church-style committee to look at this,”
Jordan told Just the News last week.
