A federal judge ordered Dr. Anthony Fauci, former White House press secretary Jen Psaki and other officials be deposed to answer questions about the government’s efforts to allegedly censor speech on social media platforms.

Judge Terry A. Doughty said Dr. Fauci’s emails prove that he was “acting as an intermediary for others in order to censor information” from being shared.

“After reviewing the Plaintiffs and the Defendants’ arguments, the Court finds that Plaintiffs have proven that Dr. Fauci has personal knowledge about the issue concerning censorship across social media as it related to COVID-19 and ancillary issues of COVID-19,” Judge Doughty wrote Friday.

Judge Doughty granted the request in a lawsuit at the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana from Louisiana and Missouri’s attorneys general and people whose online speech was allegedly affected.
