Court: Biden Admin Officials Too Important To Be Deposed in Censorship Case

The ruling class is the ruling class.

The ruling class is the ruling class.

The Founding Fathers said that we have a government of the people by the people. D.C. begs to dissent. And by D.C., I mean the corrupt corpus of the federal government. The people ought to know their place and stop bothering the truly important people in the Biden administration.

“A federal appeals court has halted planned court-ordered depositions of three top Biden administration officials in a lawsuit the states of Missouri and Louisiana brought over alleged pressure on social-media companies to remove posts containing purported misinformation about the coronavirus, election security and other issues.”

Alleged? There’s nothing alleged about it. It’s long since been made public in its general outlines.

“A panel of the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that a district court judge in Louisiana erred by approving the depositions for Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Jen Easterly and White House Director of Digital Strategy Rob Flaherty, without examining in detail whether there were other means of getting the information plaintiffs are seeking to prove their claims.”

The suit filed in May by the Republican attorneys general of Missouri and Louisiana claims President Joe Biden and various officials used pressure on social-media firms to deprive Americans of their First Amendment rights.

“Before any of the depositions may go forward, the district court must analyze whether the information sought can be obtained through less intrusive, alternative means, such as further written discovery or depositions of lower-ranking officials,” the appeals court declared in a five-page, unanimous order issued by Judges Edith Clement, Leslie Southwick and Stephen Higginson. “It is not enough, as the district court found, that these officials may have ‘personal knowledge’ about certain communications. That knowledge may be shared widely or have only marginal importance in comparison to the ‘potential burden’ imposed on the deponent.”

My favorite part is the “depositions of lower-ranking officials”.

How many times have judges ordered that Trump be deposed? Trump officials have repeatedly faced depositions. Trump officials who refused to appear before the Jan 6 committee have faced arrest.

But when there are serious reasons to believe that the Biden administration has been coordinating with tech monopolies on censorship campaigns, the response is to talk to “lower-ranking officials”, not the big boys and girls.

This tells you everything you need to know about the corruption of the system. And whom the system serves.
