Biden Admin Pressured FDA Over Vaccine Approval

( – A House Judiciary Subcommittee recently released a report about the Biden administration’s efforts to pressure the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to alter its standards procedures to fast-track vaccine approval and mandates.

On Monday, June 24, the Administrative State, Regulatory Reform, and Antitrust subcommittee published its report on how the Biden administration put pressure on the FDA to lower its testing standards and cut corners to speed up approval for vaccines, particularly for minors, and to authorize booster shots.

Two days later, on Wednesday, June 26, the committee held a hearing detailing how the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and FDA caved to pressure from Biden administration officials to act outside their authority. Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky, chairman of the subcommittee, said that in light of information about side effects and injuries from vaccines, the CDC, FDA, and its reviewers should be held accountable for speeding up the approval process in order to enact mandates.

The new interim report showed that the FDA was already aware of concerns about possible severe side effects from the injections and ignored those concerns to fast-track mandates requiring young Americans to take the shots in order to attend school and participate in other activities.

Dr. Philip Krause and Dr. Marion Gruber, two scientists who worked at the FDA at the time, testified at the hearing and claimed they were pressured by higher-ups to cut corners by altering the review process for vaccines through Emergency Use Authorization (EAU) and then to enact mandates. The committee showed that even with evidence available of potential harm, the Biden administration used the Biologics Licensing Application process to approve the Pfizer vaccine as the most “safe and effective” one, and the only one licensed as such by federal authorities.

Massie blasted the government for allowing politics to overrule science within institutions that were “entrusted with protecting public health.” He said the FDA “ignored its own rules” and “abandoned” its duty to protect American citizens.
