OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE: FDA refusing to provide COVID “vaccine” safety data to Congress as requested
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is refusing to comply with a request from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) for Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) “vaccine” safety data.
Earlier in the year, the FDA conducted a series of analyses based on data collected from the government-run Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), which tracks injuries and deaths caused by vaccines. Prior to that, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) publicly claimed that none of the safety signals it identified pertaining to Fauci Flu shots were “unexpected.”
Johnson, who is leading the charge in Congress to hold Big Pharma and Big Government accountable for COVID crimes against humanity, had asked the FDA for details about its analyses and how they were conducted, only to have the regulatory agency stonewall him.
The FDA and the CDC ran different types of analyses, the latter using Proportional Reporting Ratio analyses that involve comparing the number of reported adverse events stemming from COVID jabs to the number of reported adverse events caused by other types of shots.
Records show that the first time the CDC ran its analyses for COVID jabs in 2022, hundreds of signals were triggered. Earlier analyses conducted by the FDA in 2021 relied on what is known as Empirical Bayesian (EB) data mining.

FDA, CDC work for Big Pharma, not We the People
According to former CDC head Rochelle Walensky, a notorious liar, the results of the CDC’s Proportional Reporting Ratio analyses “were generally consistent with EB data mining, revealing no additional unexpected safety signals.”
In response to this claim, Sen. Johnson asked for further details and proof to back Walensky’s claim, only to have the CDC redirect him to the FDA, which then failed to provide the requested materials.
According to the FDA, it cannot provide the information Sen. Johnson seeks because of a pending legal case.
“FDA’s EB data mining analyses of adverse events contained in VAERS reports for COVID-19 vaccines are currently the subject of pending FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] litigation,” the agency said.
“FDA is unable to comment on pending litigation or provide information or data that is currently being considered in pending litigation.”
Sen. Johnson’s response to this was to write a letter to FDA Commissioner Dr. Robert Califf informing him that the FDA’s claim is wrong. He also clarified that the FDA has a legal obligation to provide the requested materials.
“As you are well aware, Congress has a right to information contained at U.S. federal agencies as it conducts its constitutional oversight responsibilities,” Sen. Johnson wrote.
“It is outrageous that FDA would assert that pending litigation, and particularly FOIA litigation, would allow your agency to obstruct my congressional oversight. Any pending litigation FDA may have relating to its EB data mining records has no bearing on its responsibility to comply with a congressional request.”
In the past, Sen. Johnson went on to say, there have generally never been any problems obtaining government documents subject to litigation. This includes information that he requested from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the parent agency that oversees the FDA.
Sen. Johnson is urging the FDA to produce the EB data mining analyses by no later than September 20. The FDA, meanwhile, is refusing to comment any further on the matter.
Back in January, Children’s Health Defense (CHD), a project of 2024 presidential contender Robert F. Kennedy Jr., sued the FDA for refusing to procure the results of the EB data mining analyses, arguing that the FDA is engaging in illegal behavior.
With each passing day, the FDA loses exponentially more credibility. Learn more at FDA.news.
