Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has now addressed an official letter directly to Pfizer this week requesting answers after Project Veritas aired an undercover sting film this week reportedly showing an official at the business admitting that it was involved in contentious vaccine research.
The 10-minute video depicts a guy described as Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer’s director of research and development, strategic operations suggesting that the corporation is “exploring” ways to allegedly “mutate” coronaviruses in order to “generate new vaccines.”
Senator Rubio replied to the video with a letter to Dr. Albert Bourla, the CEO and Chairman of Pfizer Inc.
“I write in response to troubling reports on Pfizer’s intention to mutate the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID) virus through gain-of-function, or ‘directed evolution,’ as detailed by Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Jordan Walker. As has been proven time and time again, attempts to mutate a virus, particularly one as potent as COVID, are dangerous. If the claims detailed in the video are true, Pfizer has put its desire for profit over the concern of national and global health and must hold itself accountable.” Rubio wrote in a letter.
“In a video released by Project Veritas on January 25, 2023, Mr. Walker laid out Pfizer’s plans to develop new vaccines for future variants of COVID by mutating the virus through directed evolution, a process that uses protein engineering to impose natural selection on a living organism or other biological materials, including viruses. Though he claimed the research is currently ‘exploratory,’ he detailed how the research would proceed, such as how scientists would inject the mutated viruses into monkeys and collect serial samples from other monkeys who are infected.” Rubio added later in the letter.
The startling video has since gone viral and become the source of immense controversy on various social media platforms.
