Dr. Fauci reticent in social media collusion lawsuit deposition, says ‘I don’t recall’ 174 times

Dr. Anthony Fauci gave a deposition back on  Nov. 23 as part of a landmark lawsuit filed by Louisiana and Missouri against the federal government and the Biden administration for colluding with social media companies to censor speech.

”Fauci’s recent deposition only confirmed what we already knew: federal bureaucrats in collusion with social media companies want to control not only what you think, but especially what you say,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said in a press release. “During no time in human history was this more obvious than during the COVID-19 crisis where social engineering tactics were used against the American public, not to limit your exposure to a virus, but to limit your exposure to information that did not fit within a government sanctioned narrative.”

”Missouri and Louisiana are leading the way in exposing how the federal government and the Biden Administration worked with social media to censor speech. In our deposition with Dr. Fauci, it became clear that when Dr. Fauci speaks, social media censors,” said Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt. “I invite everyone to read the deposition transcript and see exactly how Dr. Fauci operates, and exactly how the COVID tyranny that ruined lives and destroyed businesses was born.”

On that note, Schmitt, who was just elected to the U.S. Senate, released the transcripts of Fauci’s deposition that revealed, for some, a surprising fact — the infectious disease expert’s daughter worked for Twitter up until last year.

That revelation appeared to come reluctantly after Fauci was asked multiple times, as seen here:

Q. Do you know anyone who works for a social media platform?

A. Do I know somebody who works for a social media platform?

Q. Or at this time?

A. Well, I’ve had communications with Mark Zuckerberg in the past who was — I’ve done, I believe, three outward FaceTime discussions encouraging people to get vaccinated.

Q. Do you know anyone else who works for a social media platform other than Mark Zuckerberg?

A. When you say do I know somebody who works?

Q. Like, do you have acquaintances, people that you know, who work at social media platforms?

A. Well, a person who used to work as a software engineer for Twitter was my daughter.

Q. Oh, your daughter worked for Twitter?

A. She used to, yes.


But there was more. According to the transcript, Dr. Fauci said “I don’t recall” 174 times, which included questions about “emails that he sent, interviews that he gave, and other important information.”

Fauci’s infamous flip-flopping on face masks also came up in the deposition, with a Feb. 2020 email sent to a colleague instructing her not to wear a mask when traveling was referenced. As Sen.-elect Schmitt noted below, just a couple of months later, Fauci “was advocating for universal mask mandates.”

Amid recent suggestions that Fauci was impressed by how China was responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, Schmitt shared: “One of Fauci’s deputies joined a WHO delegation to China in February of 2020, and in talking to Fauci afterwards, was impressed with how the Chinese ‘were handling the isolation, the contact tracing, the building of facilities to take care of people.'”

In an earlier tweet, the Republican said Twitter’s “previous regime suppressed my account & throttled my tweets to hide the truth” when it comes to “Covid tyranny.”

He also had this to say: “The federal government — with all its vast power and authority—working closely with some of the largest companies in the history of the world to censor its citizens should scare the hell out of every American. It must be stopped.”
