House GOP Demand FDA Testify on Political Interference in Biden Admin. Vaccine Approval

House Republicans have called the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to testify on political interference by the Biden administration in its Covid-19 vaccine and booster approval process. “According to new internal U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) communications, it appears the Biden Administration may have bypassed, compressed, and possibly compromised the longstanding process for awarding a full biologics approval to a vaccine,” reads a letter from Republicans to the FDA. “This effort may not have been to save lives, but concernedly to provide cover for implementing and enforcing vaccine mandates across the country.”

From Just the News:

"The Biden Administration’s political interference in the impartial vaccine approval process is a recurring theme," they continued. "Last Congress, Select Subcommittee Republicans wrote to the FDA requesting information about potential political interference with the FDA’s booster shot approval process. In that letter, we inquired into President Biden’s announcement that booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine would be available to Americans starting September 20, 2021, prior to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or FDA concluding their independent reviews of the data."

"It was reported at the time that, this political push by Biden’s White House contributed to the decision of two top career scientists, Dr. Gruber and Dr. Krause to leave the FDA," they continued.
