Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt is taking an official interest in a lawsuit filed by a group of Navy SEALS against President Biden.
Schmitt joined 21 other attorneys general in filing an amicus brief over the Biden Administration’s refusal to grant religious exemptions to military members who don’t want to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
In a statement, Schmitt says he’s supporting the religious freedom of the plaintiffs and opposing “the continued overreach of the Biden Administration.
The amicus brief doesn’t make Missouri a plaintiff, but it expresses the state’s interest in the plaintiffs’ case.
Schmitt is also running for U-S Senate.
The Attorneys General of Mississippi, Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming signed the amicus brief in U.S. Navy SEALs 1-26 v. Biden.
“Once again, President Biden is abusing his authority,” Oklahoma Attorney General O’Connor said. “We will not turn our backs on our patriots.It is our turn to protect their individual and religious liberties. The Navy is cancelling their voices by grossly delaying consideration of their exemptions. I will continue to protect Americans’ rights to make their own healthcare decisions.”
