This was the original complaint credit to u/ol_Gravy_Leg for providing case law information

How does content violate law: In July of 2019 the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that "by preventing critics from accessing his feed, the president is barring them from participating in what the judges deemed a public forum." Since this channel is the official White House channel, and is used "to conduct official business and to interact with the public", it cannot have it's comment section turned off. This is a US government content provider . By blocking comments, they/YouTube are violating first amendment rights.
