The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court Central District of California Western Division. It states that the California Office of Elections Cybersecurity (OEC), which Secretary of State Shirley Weber oversees, caused YouTube to remove Judicial Watch’s election integrity video on September 25, 2020.

Judicial Watch announced recently it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit on behalf of Stand Together Against Racism and Radicalism in the Services, Inc. (STARRS) against the U.S. Department of Defense for U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA) records regarding “systemic racism,” as well as records of critical race theory at the Academy
“The American people have a right to know the entire story about the Biden administration’s abusive raid on President Trump’s home,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The raid on President Trump’s home was an outrageous, reckless and unprecedented abuse of power – and the unlawful Biden agency secrecy about the raid only adds to the scandal.”

The records also show National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) officials were concerned about “gain-of-function” research in China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology in 2016. The Fauci agency was also concerned about EcoHealth Alliance’s lack of compliance with reporting rules and use of gain-of-function research in the NIH-funded research involving bat coronaviruses in Wuhan, China.

Washington Examiner: Judicial Watch sues Department of Defense over unanswered diversity FOIAs
The legal group filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of Stand Together Against Racism and Radicalism in the Services on Friday. STARRS is an organization of retired service members who have grown alarmed over the military’s increased focus on diversity, which they argue is at the expense of the military’s war-fighting capabilities — a common concern among conservatives.
Explaining the lawsuit, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “The Secret Service and the Biden administration apparently are in cover-up mode for Hunter Biden. Whether its Hunter Biden’s laptop, his business practices and travel, or these documents related to the careless disposal of a gun in a dumpster near a high school, this administration continues to put up unlawful roadblocks to any effort to investigate the activities of the Biden family, particularly Hunter.”
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton questioned Good Information Foundation’s motives and lack of transparency on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow, after the tax-exempt organization was accused of allegedly trying to pay an attorney to spread false information about former President Trump and “Trump Republicans” on social media.
