Biden DHS Sued For Allegedly Stonewalling Release Of Censorship Docs
From The Daily Caller:
Government watchdog Judicial Watch sued the Department Homeland Security (DHS) Wednesday for allegedly failing to disclose documents related to its censorship activities.
The lawsuit stems from an unanswered December 2022 FOIA request for communications records between Cybersecurity and Information Security Agency (CISA) officials and social media platforms. The request sought information relating to activities revealed in the Twitter files, such as the “industry meetings” the FBI, DHS and other government agencies held with tech companies.
“There is an unholy conspiracy in the Biden administration to censor Americans in collusion with Big Tech,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.
“This new Judicial Watch lawsuit shows the censorship abuse is furthered by unlawful secrecy and cover-ups.”
Judicial Watch’s FOIA requests communications from CISA Director Jen Easterly, Former Director Christopher Krebs, Former Senior Cybersecurity Advisor Matt Masterson, and Senior Cybersecurity Advisor Brian Scully.
It’s not the first lawsuit Judicial Watch has filed against the DHS. They sued in November and February for records relating to the Election Integrity Partnership, which worked with CISA and helped censor information online during the 2020 election.
The group has previously filed similar FOIA lawsuits against the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
