/1🚨🔎BREAKING: America First Legal has obtained new documents from litigation against the CDC uncovering how the Biden Admin used foreign intelligence tactics against Americans to censor free speech.
Follow along for findings from the 700+ page release ⤵️
/2 On May 24, 2021, @KFF shared the eighth edition of its “State of Vaccine Confidence Insights Report.”

Read more here: aflegal.org/breaking-afl-u…
/3 Elisabeth Wilhelm, a “Vaccine Confidence Specialist” with the CDC, sent the report to a number of her CDC colleagues and White House Officials.

Among those officials were Mary Beth Polley and Maureen Bartee, who both worked with the NSC. A meeting was organized. ImageImageImage
/4 The following week, on June 2, 2021, NSC hosted a call with the CDC and the Census Bureau so that they could talk to the “interagency” about their processes to “identify, counter and build resilience to disinformation” processes. ImageImage
/5 What was the Biden Administration discussing on this call?

While they’ve redacted hidden most of that information, take a look at the Orwellian title of the NSC invitation: ImageImage
/6 The invitation reads: “IIR [REDACTED] on Counter Disinformation: Lessons Learned from CDC and Census on countering dis/mis information in real time.”

IIR, used in this context, most likely means “Intelligence Information Report.”
/7 Why would the Census Bureau present their experiences on “disinformation” to the interagency?

The documents reveal that the Census began “combatting mis/disinformation” during the 2020 Census and relied on the State Department’s Global Engagement Center: Image
/8 What is the Global Engagement Center (GEC) and what does it do?

GEC engages in strategic counter-messaging to advance US interests abroad. State Dept. uses it to shape the way the US is viewed abroad.

In short, it is the propaganda arm of the US government.
/9 But, importantly, because it is a part of the State Department, it is supposed to be used abroad, in foreign countries and not domestically.

/10 The day after the first call, Elisabeth (CDC) sent a follow-up email shedding additional light on what was covered in the meeting and the CDC’s activities. Image
/11 And, while the CDC was apparently “happy” to share this information with any other government agency, it has gone to great lengths to keep this information from the American people.
/12 These documents show a direct line from foreign intelligence tactics being used at the State Department, to the Census Bureau, and then to the CDC.
/13 In June, the NSC put the State Dept. and the CDC directly on the same email chain.

We know that the Executive Office of the President affirmatively coordinated activity between CDC, USAID, and State on “Efforts to Counter COVID disinfo.” Image
/14 🚨 Then, shockingly, the NSC organized a call, held on July 6, 2021, on classified servers run out of the White House Situation Room, and distributed a classified discussion paper in advance of the meeting to talk about “efforts to counter COVID disinfo” domestically: Image
/15 This meeting was chaired by two Special Assistants to the President.

It is unknown who else attended or what was precisely discussed. However, AFL obtained several follow up emails…
/16 On July 8, Mary Beth sent a widely distributed email referring to a working group that was created as a result of the July 6 classified meeting. She also appeared to schedule a follow up meeting. ImageImage
/17 On July 13, Mary Beth followed up with the State Department group from mid-June, with an email that is mostly redacted but asks for updates to pass to “leadership as soon as possible.” Image
/18 And finally, on July 14, Mary Beth sent an email asking for “confirmation by COB today” from the various departments and agencies on whether they would join a NITRD working group. Image
/19 Just 24 hours after setting up a working group and 9 days after the classified call, Jen Psaki took to the podium in the WH press briefing room to tout the WH’s efforts of working with social media companies to remove “problematic” information from the internet.
/20 The National Security Council took the tools and processes used by the State Department to push, and counter, propaganda abroad, and co-opted and used them against Americans to shape the domestic political narrative.
/21 To understand just how problematic this is, look to the deposition testimony of FBI Agent Elvis Chan in another case led by the Missouri and Louisiana, who said that the State Dept. wouldn’t “have the same sorts of [First Amendment] concerns that I would working at the FBI.” Image
/22 These documents prove that there was a coordinated effort through the Biden Administration to take intelligence tools and use them against Americans.
/23 This was directly coordinated by the Executive Office of the President and the National Security Council and has led to the censorship of an untold number of American citizens.
