Dr. Robert Malone, a noted mRNA vaccine researcher, and Dr. Peter McCullough, one of the most-published medical doctors in the world, gave a joint statement to The New American on Friday where they accused the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of perpetrating “criminal” fraud. Watch:
“In my opinion, withholding scientific data constitutes fraud,” Dr. Malone argued. “This is scientific fraud. In my opinion, if I was to publish a study in which I had a large body of epidemiologic data, and I decided to only public publish part of it because I wanted to advance some agenda, I would be guilty of scientific fraud. The paper would be withdrawn. I would be kicked out of my academic institution. I would be guilty of scientific fraud. That’s what this is.”
“And the CDC has, I’ve watched it over the years, become more and more and more a political arm and not serving its its function,” he continued. “This is the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. They are the archive of information which physicians have relied on for decades through the MMWR publication. They are the ones that are responsible for providing us the frontline data about what’s going on and where it’s happening and they have stopped performing that function.”
“They no longer release that detailed information through MMWR,” Dr. Malone went on. “They have become purely a political organization and arm of the executive branch. And what they have done is in my opinion, obscene. And it is part of what’s underlied the attacks that Peter and I have sustained from the press. If you think about it, the underlying thesis is, ‘well, the CDC didn’t say that, so therefore you’re spreading medical misinformation.’ But now we learn who’s really been spreading medical misinformation is the CDC.”
“I think we’re all owed an apology,” he went on. “I think that this data that they have been withholding, it’s not just the 18-to-49-year-old triple boost efficacy data. It is a ton of information. They’ve been intentionally withholding it. That’s why we’ve been attacked. It is unjust. We are the ones, it turns out, we are completely vindicated. We have been speaking truth.”
“And it’s the truth that’s been hidden from the American public and more important it’s been hidden from other physicians and it’s been hidden from public health authorities,” Malone went on. “That article was powerful. If you look through it, the New York Times tried to hide it and they dropped it on President’s Day and they wrote it in ways that tries to obscure what’s really going on. But what’s going on here is criminal in my opinion.”
“Yes,” journalist Veronika Kyrylenko said. “I wanted to ask you, you just mentioned that there would be severe consequences if a scientist performs something like that. Will there be consequences for the federal government?”
“So, I’ve spoken and repeatedly for those people that are within the government, we call ’em ‘govies’ for slang, the folks working at the CDC that gave these interviews to the New York Times, but wouldn’t share their names. I think they are now at a point of choosing.”
“There are going to be legal consequences, and I believe they have a choice,” Dr. Malone said. “These government employees that have been participating in hiding this data, they can either be defendants or they can be witnesses. It is time for them to step up and speak out. And if they want do a whistleblower action, speak to Senator Ron Johnson, his office is in business looking for this.”
“And when the midterms are done and he’s reelected and the Republicans take the Senate, he’s going to be in charge of the Senate subcommittee on investigations,” Malone added. “And I can tell you that he is ready to go.”
Dr. Peter McCullough then weighed in on the matter of holding the government accountable for the lack of data transparency.
“You know, I just add to that, that this isn’t the only area of concerns on data transparency,” Dr. McCullough said. “The FDA and Pfizer are being sued for a release of their full dossier. Many of you know that there now is an accelerated release of the data, but the reluctance to release information on a biological product that each and every Americans is being asked, if not mandated to take, the reluctance to do so should make everyone concerned.”
“The other area of data transparency we’re extremely concerned about is the Department of Defense epidemiological database information that was released on the January 24th Senate panel, a Second Opinion chaired by Senator Ron Johnson, and their lead attorney, Tom Renz, co-counsel, Leigh Dundas, presented the data and the whistleblowers in fact, did disclose their names, lead whistleblower, being flight surgeon Theresa Long.”
“And it’s clear, there is a manyfold increase across many disease categories among our servicemen year over year,” Dr. McCullough went on. “The only thing that’s changed is the administration of the vaccines in large numbers. So data transparency at this point in time will be an area that I believe Dr. Malone is correct, will be intensively investigated. And for those who are close to the data, I think they do have a choice coming up and it’s going to be be a matter of them making the right choice and where they want to end up on what side of history.”
The CDC is now being called out by Republican lawmakers over the lack of data transparency referenced in the above-mentioned New York Times article, “The C.D.C. Isn’t Publishing Large Portions of the Covid Data It Collects.”
“I write to you seeking answers regarding troubling reports of your agency intentionally withholding data related to COVID-19 hospitalizations,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) wrote to CDC Director Rochelle Walensky. “As recently reported by the New York Times, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) allegedly withheld data, such as data on COVID-19 hospitalizations by vaccination status, because agency personnel stated the data may be misinterpreted.”
Roy stated that if the New York Times’ report was true, it represents a “stunning revelation” that “only further erodes the lack of trust the American people have in your agency.”
“Under your leadership, Americans have been rightly confused and exhausted by myriad policy reversals, politically motivated falsehoods, and bureaucratic overreach,” Roy wrote to Walensky.
Americans are not going to soon forget how the CDC behaved during the Covid pandemic. The pressure is building for serious accountability — even if that follows the coming “bloodbath” for Democrats in the November elections.
