InfluenceWatch Podcast #320: Dr. Fauci and the Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act was supposed to ensure public access to federal government documents, including written communications by senior officials. But the law has been wantonly circumvented; perhaps most notably by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “homebrew” email server, but more recently it has come to light that aides of former National Institutes of Health official and de facto COVID lockdown czar Anthony Fauci openly wrote about their FOIA circumvention. Joining us to discuss FOIA, how officials try to evade it, and what can be done about it is veteran journalist (and member of the National Freedom of Information Act Hall of Fame) Mark Tapscott.
Listen to “Episode 320 – Dr. Fauci and the Freedom of Information” on Spreaker.
