It has not been an easy ride for President Joe Biden or his acolytes recently. A federal judge overruled former White House press secretary Jen Psaki and ruled she must comply with a subpoena and testify in a lawsuit that claims the Biden administration colluded with Big Tech to censor speech. Judge Terry Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana rejected a motion by attorneys for Psaki to block her court-ordered deposition. The judge decided there is public interest in “determining whether First Amendment free speech rights have been suppressed.”
It is now being reported by Fox News that:
A federal judge ruled Monday that former White House press secretary Jen Psaki must comply with a subpoena and offer deposition in a lawsuit that claims the Biden administration colluded with Big Tech to censor speech.
Judge Terry Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana on Monday rejected a motion by attorneys for Psaki to block a court-ordered deposition, and said there is public interest in “determining whether First Amendment free speech rights have been suppressed.”
Monday’s order follows a ruling from U.S. Magistrate Judge Ivan Davis, who on Friday transferred the case back to Louisiana after Psaki attempted to fight the deposition in a Virginia court where she lives and would be deposed. Biden’s Justice Department supported her effort.
Fox went on to report that:
“Ms. Psaki’s effort to eliminate or delay her deposition in this action had failed because of the swift action of two judges in widely dispersed courts, one in Virginia and one in Louisiana, and by the implausibility of her reasons for not testifying as to Federal efforts to censure social media that made quick resolution possible,” John J. Vecchione, senior counsel for the New Civil Liberties Alliance, said in a press statement. NCLA supports the lawsuit against Psaki.
Republican Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana first filed the lawsuit in May, accusing top-ranking government officials of working with the giant social media companies Meta, Twitter and YouTube “under the guise of combating misinformation” in order to achieve greater censorship.
In October, Judge Doughty ruled that Psaki and other high-ranking administration officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, should be deposed.
It was further reported by MSN that:
The development came on Friday when United States Magistrate Ivan Davis rejected Psaki’s request to quash the subpoena.
Davis also reportedly said he was “unimpressed” with the former White House press secretary’s argument, and ordered the issue be sent back to Louisiana where the case – alongside the state of Missouri – was first brought against the Biden Administration.
Psaki initially filed her request in Alexandria, Virginia and attempted to escape her deposition by arguing she had no “relevant information” to provide in the case, according to Daily Mail.

“How much time does it take to prepare a witness for deposition when she doesn’t really have anything to say?” Magistrate Davis asked on Friday when he rejected Psaki’s request.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt first filed a lawsuit against President Joe Biden, his administration and other top government officials in May 2022.
According to Landry and Schmitt’s lawsuit, the Biden Administration worked with “social media giants such as Meta, Twitter, and YouTube to censor and suppress free speech, including truthful information, related to COVID-19, election integrity, and other topics, under the guise of combating ‘misinformation.’”
Regular readers of The Raging Patriot will certainly be familiar with Jen Psaki. In fact, we reported towards the end of last year that a White House correspondent accused then-press secretary Jen Psaki Thursday of lying about the reasoning for travel restrictions, which have targeted eight countries in southern Africa due to the Omicron COVID-19 variant. Simon Ateba of Today News Africa began shouting over Psaki as she tried to call on Voice of America’s Patsy Widakuswara, at one point telling the press secretary: “You are saying something that is false.”
