A federal judge has ordered Dr. Anthony Fauci and other White House leaders to testify regarding alleged collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech companies regarding COVID-19.
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry sued the Biden administration in May regarding the suppression of information related to the coronavirus on social media.

"The case argued that under Norwood v. Harrison and other Supreme Court precedents, government cannot use a private company to do something that the Constitution does not allow the government to do directly," Breitbart News noted.
"Missouri and Louisiana argue that the Biden administration is suppressing free speech about coronavirus, and by attempting to do so by colluding with the tech giants, Big Tech became part of the government, and as such they must all abide by the First Amendment," it added.

"After finding documentation of a collusive relationship between the Biden Administration and social media companies to censor free speech, we immediately filed a motion to get these officials under oath," Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said in a statement.
"It is high time we shine a light on this censorship enterprise and force these officials to come clean to the American people, and this ruling will allow us to do just that. We'll keep pressing for the truth."

The new ruling could make public new information about medical information that was suppressed on social media during the pandemic.
Fauci's testimony may also unveil other concerns regarding social media censorship ahead of the midterm elections.
The coronavirus leader may be near retirement, but he will unlikely escape being held accountable for his role in locking down America and limiting many freedoms.
