The Department of Homeland Security directed a Freedom of Information Act request about the government’s role in censorship to Washington state, which is currently involved in several lawsuits against the legal watchdog group that made the FOIA request.
Protect the Public’s Trust on Wednesday said it asked Homeland Security to provide “‘tickets’ submitted by DHS to its censorship partners.” The tickets reportedly contained social media posts, many of which were conservative, from U.S. citizens that the government wanted to be suppressed or removed.
