BACK IN THE HOT SEAT! Judge Orders Fauci to Be Deposed in Social Media Collusion Case

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.24.22

U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty has ordered Dr. Anthony Fauci and other Biden officials to sit for depositions in a lawsuit over the government’s alleged collusion with social media companies to suppress viewpoints opposed to the government’s narrative, Just The News reports.

The lawsuit alleges that the Biden Administration colluded with Big tech companies to censor opinions that they found unfavorable in regard to COVID-19; the lawsuit is led by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.

“In his decision, U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty asserted that Fauci’s prior public comments in relation to national pandemic policy made him a relevant figure in the case and ordered his deposition,” Just The News reports.

“Lastly, Plaintiffs argue that Dr. Fauci’s credibility has been in question on matters related to supposed COVID-19 ‘misinformation’ since 2020. Specifically, Plaintiffs state that Dr. Fauci has made public statements on the efficacy of masks, the percentage of the population needed for herd immunity, NIAID’s funding of ‘gain-of-function’ virus research in Wuhan, the lab-leak theory, and more,” he wrote.

“Plaintiffs urge that his comments on these important issues are relevant to the matter at hand and are further reasons why Dr. Fauci should be deposed. Plaintiffs assert that they should not be required to simply accept Dr. Fauci’s ‘self-serving blanket denials’ that were issued from someone other than himself at face value. The Court agrees,” he continued.

Fauci’s statements hide wide-reaching effects on the U.S. —including learning loss among K-12 students.

From The Washington Examiner:

Student test scores saw precipitous declines in math and reading over the past two years, according to new data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, commonly known as the nation’s report card.

The 2022 scores, which measure student proficiency in reading and math, is the first edition of the nation’s report to be released since COVID-19 pandemic policies forced schools nationwide to close their doors, in some cases up to a full year.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul shared the story on Twitter, saying “Never again let Fauci and his cronies close our schools!”
