Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey shared explosive 4th of July news.
He posted a Twitter thread that began by stating, “The Court has granted our motion to BLOCK top officials in the federal government from violating the First Amendment rights of millions of Americans. What a way to celebrate Independence Day.”
This comes after a lawsuit was filed in the District Court in the Western District of Louisiana Monroe Division by the states of Missouri and Louisiana. The states claim that Joe Biden and other government officials violated Americans’ First Amendment rights by colluding with Big Tech to censor dissenting voices, according to the Washington Examiner.
The ruling halts various officials in the federal government from continuing to do so. Per court documents, a preliminary injunction was granted to prohibit members of the Biden administration, DHS, DOJ, HHS, CDC, FBI, and the State Department from instructing social media companies to censor individuals, flag content, change guidelines, or pressure them for information.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was specifically named along with other White House staff members.
Bailey also noted in his post, “There is nothing stopping the feds from continuing to censor political speech without this injunction.”
He added, “The federal government cannot be trusted to protect Americans’ rights, which is precisely why our Founders enshrined the First Amendment into the Constitution.”
Then, Bailey declared, “This injunction is a huge win in the fight to defend our most fundamental freedoms.”
He concluded by stating, “But we’re not done yet. We’re just getting started.”
