Desperate Media Elevates New Debunked ‘Whistleblower’ Complaint From Scorned Official
About two weeks ago the liberal media were all over a story of a fired HHS official who claimed he was fired because he opposed the use of hydroxychloroquine.
Dr. Rick Bright was fired and ran to the press saying he had dirt on the President and claimed his opposition to hydroxychloroquine was why. Within a few hours, Bright’s allegation was proven false and evidence proved Bright was a big advocate to use hydroxychloroquine.
Now Bright has filed a whistleblower complaint claiming he has “new” information and the press lapped it up like a dog coming in from the heat. Norah O’Donnell and anti-Trump White House correspondent Weijia Jiang from CBS News were ecstatic hoping Bright exposing something awful about President Trump.
O’DONNELL: And tonight, for the first time, we’re getting an inside account of the scramble within the Trump administration as it tried to get a handle on the unfolding pandemic. Today, ousted vaccine expert Rick Bright filed a formal whistleblower complaint, alleging his warnings were ignored. CBS’s Weijia Jiang is traveling with the President in Phoenix. Weijia.
JIANG: Well Norah, Rick Bright’s complaint lays out in detail just how devastating he predicted the coronavirus would be and how he tried to get his superiors to listen.
As we reported a couple of weeks ago it was Bright that actually requested the FDA to give emergency approval for the use of hydroxychloroquine, he was a cheerleader for its use.
In March, Rick Bright requested the FDA issue an “Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for emergency use of oral formulations of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate for the treatment of 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19)…” https://t.co/ZKZJB17v32 pic.twitter.com/uFB6Ymkq1k

But that is just the start, it wasn’t that Bright opposed the President it was that the Administration did not like his management style or his leadership, they’ve been trying to get rid of him for a year. Politico discovered that Bright actually praised the President for pushing the use of hydroxychloroquine.
The Trump administration has been working to oust Bright since last year, as officials battled with him over his management and leadership.

Now take a look at this…Christine Blasey Ford’s – from the Kavanaugh hearings – attorneys are now representing Bright because he claims he was fired for “bravely” opposing the President. As we have shown above even the libs at Politico busted that myth.
BRIGHT is being represented by Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, who have a whistleblower practice (and who also repped Christine Blasey Ford) https://t.co/V7Vbxg1qxk

It’s like the Democrats are taking the Russia hoax, Ukraine in the virus, and playing a horrible mixtape.
As one Twitter user commented, “The Left really wants to try the demolition derby approach to the coronavirus don’t they?”
