America First Legal on Wednesday released documents obtained from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealing what it called “concrete evidence of collusion” between the CDC and social media companies to censor free speech and promote Biden administration propaganda.

America First Legal (AFL) on Wednesday released shocking documents obtained from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealing concrete evidence of collusion between the CDC and social media companies to censor free speech and promote Biden administration propaganda.

These documents are only the latest examples of this administration’s blatant disregard for the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law.

Last July, then-White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted the White House was working with social media companies to identify “misinformation.”

Specifically, she said:

“We’re regularly making sure social media platforms are aware of the latest narratives, dangerous to public health that we and many other Americans are seeing across all of social and traditional media. And we work to engage with them to better understand the enforcement of social media platform policies.”

AFL immediately submitted FOIA requests to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the CDC, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the National Institutes of Health to uncover the degree to which the CDC and the White House have been censoring content that it has deemed “disinformation” or “misinformation.”

Predictably, the Biden administration obstructed and delayed complying with their legal obligation to provide such information, and AFL sued the CDC to compel their release.

Today, after a year of work, AFL has obtained its first damning release of documents.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to the CDC working with the U.S. Census Bureau to “leverage their infrastructure to identify and monitor social media for vaccine misinformation,” the 286-page production reveals shocking information, a sampling of which is below.

The records AFL finally received from the CDC reveal the extent to which the Biden administration is willing to engage in unconstitutional and otherwise unlawful activities in total disregard for the rights of American citizens.

AFL continues to file crucial oversight requests with the Biden administration to reveal to the American people the actions this administration is taking on a daily basis which undermine the rule of law and the liberties of American citizens.

AFL has made clear that any corrupt government agency that attempts to conceal records should be prepared to face legal action.

Statement from America First Legal President Stephen Miller:

“These explosive smoking-gun documents, obtained as a result of America First Legal’s litigation against the Biden Administration, conclusively demonstrate that Big Tech has unlawfully colluded with the federal government to silence, censor, and suppress Americans’ free speech and violate their First Amendment rights.

“Government is expressly prohibited from censoring competing or dissenting viewpoints or from silencing its political opponents whether it does so directly or whether it uses an outside corporation to achieve its draconian, totalitarian ends. AFL will not rest in the fight against illegal collusion between Big Tech and Big Government to trample on your voices and the Bill of Rights.”
