Fauci is forced to produce emails with social media platforms.
- Judge Terry Doughty has ruled that the Biden Administration has 21 days to produce emails regarding “misinformation” censorship.

- Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit is reportedly a key plaintiff in the lawsuit for the state of Missouri that includes the state.
- The lawsuit claims that the President of the United States and other senior officials in the Biden Administration violated the First Amendment by ordering social media companies to censor viewpoints that diverge from the government’s messaging on Covid-19 and election integrity.
