(TruthAndLiberty.com) – On Wednesday, Eric Holder, who had served as the U.S. attorney general during the Obama administration, condemned the federal judge’s recent injunction which blocked the Biden administration from being allowed to communicate with social media companies. The injunction was issued in response to a lawsuit that alleges that the government has repeatedly attempted to limit free speech which is protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution.

In a tweet, Holder argued that the decision was “stupid” and that it could potentially lead to risks. He then proceeded to share a New York Times article that noted that the ruling could destroy efforts made to combat misinformation and misleading narratives related to the COVID-19 pandemic. These are the exact types of efforts that the preliminary injunction has determined to be potentially problematic.

U.S. District Judge Terry A. Doughty, signed the order in Louisiana, blocked many Biden administration officials from being allowed to meet or communicate with social media companies in an attempt to push them towards removing or surprising any information that would be protected under free speech. The Biden administration is still allowed to communicate with social media companies regarding any concerns related to criminal activity or other risks to national security.

Injunction names specific departments, agencies, and personnel who are not allowed to engage with social media companies, some of those included in the list of restricted personnel are DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, NIAID Director Dr. Hugh Auchincloss, and White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

The injunction is the result of a lawsuit filed by Eric Schmitt, a U.S. Senator and former Missouri Attorney General, and Jeff Landry, Louisiana’s Attorney General.
