Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the chief medical advisor to the U.S. president, could not recall details of his COVID-19 response during a deposition. 

Landry and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt deposed Fauci as part of their "lawsuit against the federal government for allegedly colluding with social media companies to censor speech."

According to a press release from Landry's office, "Louisiana and Missouri filed this landmark lawsuit in May of 2022 and have since uncovered troves of discovery showing that the federal government and the Biden Administration have worked with social media companies to censor speech on topics like COVID-19 and other issues."

Landry commented on Fauci's deposition on Wednesday.

"Wow! It was amazing to spend 7 hours with Dr. Fauci," Laundry wrote Wednesday on Twitter. "The man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon 'the science.' Only to discover that he can't recall practically anything dealing with his Covid response!"

Prior to the deposition taking place, Landry said he hoped to "find out how involved #Fauci was in the censorship of the American people during the COVID pandemic."
