(LifeSiteNews) — COVID czar Dr. Anthony Fauci and White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre are among a list of top-ranking officials subpoenaed in a federal lawsuit alleging the Biden administration colluded with Big Tech to quash Americans’ freedom of speech. Five social media companies have also been served with subpoenas.
The subpoenas come after Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry filed a lawsuit in May alleging that the Biden administration had conspired with social media companies to suppress Americans’ free speech on a range of controversial subjects.
Naming a bevy of Biden officials, including President Joe Biden himself, the lawsuit argues that “the Biden Administration colluded with and pressured social media giants Meta, Twitter, and YouTube to suppress and censor free speech on topics like the Hunter Biden laptop story, the Lab Leak Theory, and more.”
U.S. District Court Judge Terry Doughty granted permission last week for the discovery phase of the trial to move forward, The Center Square reported.

Doughty’s decision means that several top-ranking Biden administration officials, including National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) head Dr. Anthony Fauci and Jean-Pierre, have been given 30 days to respond to subpoenas in the case.
In addition to issuing subpoenas for Fauci and Jean-Pierre, the federal judge authorized discovery requests to be served to the NIAID and CDC, along with Jen Easterly and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Surgeon General Vivek Murthy of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Center Square noted.
A request was also served to Nina Jankowicz, who headed the Biden administration’s Disinformation Governance Board before it was paused after extensive backlash.
The court additionally greenlit third-party subpoenas to be served to five social media companies: Twitter, YouTube, Meta, Instagram and LinkedIn.
Schmitt said in a media release cited by the Center Square that the requests are meant to identify any communications between the Biden administration and social media companies having to do with potential censorship or alleged “misinformation.”
The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response.
But it's not too late to do something about it.
SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.
The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level.
194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.
This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.
SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.
Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."
Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.
The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO.
Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.
These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.
SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty
The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read.
"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive.
"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.
SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.
These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights.
We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.
Sign the petition - speak up now!

Also of interest is any correspondence having to do with the “Great Barrington Declaration,” an open letter crafted by epidemiologists who opposed COVID-19 lockdowns, the outlet noted.
“In May, Missouri and Louisiana filed a landmark lawsuit against top-ranking Biden Administration officials for allegedly colluding with social media giants to suppress free speech on topics like COVID-19 and election security,” Schmitt said in a statement, the Center Square reported.
We will fight to get to the bottom of this alleged collusion and expose the suppression of freedom of speech by social media giants at the behest of top-ranking government officials,” Schmitt said.
