    A federal judge has ordered Dr. Anthony Fauci and other Biden officials
    be deposed as part of a lawsuit against the Biden administration,
    alleging that the government colluded with social media companies to
    censor free speech related to the coronavirus and other controversial

    According to a court order from the United States District Court for
    the Western District of Louisiana, U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty
    concluded that Fauci’s high-profile public comments have made him a key figure in the lawsuit from the Republican attorneys general of
    Louisiana and Missouri who allege that "collusion" between the Biden administration and social media companies to censor coronavirus-related
    speech that could be damaging to the White House.

    "Plaintiffs argue that even if Dr. Fauci can prove he never
    communicated with social-media platforms about censorship, there are
    compelling reasons that suggest Dr. Fauci has acted through
    intermediaries, and acted on behalf of others, in procuring the
    social-media censorship of credible scientific opinions," Doughty,
    appointed by former President Trump, wrote. "Plaintiffs argue that even
    if Dr. Fauci acted indirectly or as an intermediary on behalf of
    others, it is still relevant to Plaintiffs’ preliminary injunction
    motion. The Court agrees."
