Rep. Massie, Judiciary Committee Launch Probe Into Reports Biden Admin Pressured FDA Over COVID Booster Approval

Rep Thomas Massie sent letters Monday to senior Food and Drug Administration (FDA) vaccine officials, informing them that the House Judiciary Committee will be investigating allegations that Joe Biden pressured them to approve the COVID-19 booster shots.

My sister Nellie, whom I loved to the moon and back got a booster shot last year and she died from a heart attack shortly thereafter, so I am eagerly awaiting the findings the committee has.

At the time that Biden announced the booster shots had been approved, two of the FDA officers quit and Massie wants to question them about how the FDA came to approve the boosters.

They are Dr. Marion Gruber and Dr. Philip Krause, both of whom resigned following President Joe Biden’s announcement. Gruber had been with the FDA for 32 years and Krause had worked at the agency for over a decade.

Gruber serves as the Vice President of Public Health and Regulatory Science at the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative. Philip Krause sits on the Board of Directors of Mesoblast, Inc.

Massie wrote in the letter to the FDA:

“The Committee on the Judiciary is investigating allegations that the Biden Administration interfered in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) authorization and licensure of the COVID-19 vaccines.”

“Dr. Gruber and Dr. Krause reportedly felt that the White House was getting ahead of the FDA on booster shots and disagreed with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) involvement in FDA decisions. You replaced Dr. Gruber as acting director of the FDA’s Office of Vaccines Research and Review (OVRR). Accordingly, we believe that you possess information relating to this matter, and we request your assistance with our inquiry.”

Specifically, Massie asked for:

1. The FDA’s review, authorization, approval and/or promotion of all COVID-19 vaccines and boosters;

2. The departure of Dr. Marion Gruber and Dr. Philip Krause from the FDA’s Office of Vaccines Research and Review (OVRR); and

3. The identities of current or former employees who worked in the FDA’s OVRR for the period of Jan. 1, 2020, to the present.

Massie added:

“Congress has an obligation to examine these facts to understand the sufficiency of existing federal statutes and to assess the Executive Branch’s execution of these statutes. Pursuant to the Rules of the House of Representatives, the Committee on the Judiciary has jurisdiction to conduct oversight of matters concerning ‘civil liberties’ and ‘administrative practice and procedures’ to inform potential legislative reforms.”

The Caller contacted the FDA, Mesoblast, Inc. and the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative about the letters, to which they did not immediately respond.

Did Joe Biden pressure the FDA? I would not be a bit surprised.
