The Biden Administration faces a lawsuit from a conservative legal organization over records pertaining to the Federal Trade Commission's investigation into Twitter, The Washington Examiner reports.
America First Legal, which is headed by multiple former members of the Trump administration, filed a lawsuit against the FTC after having filed a Freedom of Information Act request in March.
The organization is requesting records on the FTC's probe into Twitter, which reportedly found that the social media network "may have jeopardized privacy and security" of its users, and information on the FTC's investigation into the release of the "Twitter Files" around the same time.
"Our woke, weaponized federal government will stop at nothing to harass and attempt to intimidate its perceived opponents," said Gene Hamilton, general counsel and vice president for America First Legal, in a statement. "The American people have had enough. What they have done in the dark will be brought to the light."
The FTC declined to comment to the Examiner when contacted.
