The FBI is working hand-in-glove with Pfizer to target Project Veritas, journalists and journalism.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch on Tuesday revealed the FBI has communications from Pfizer in an investigative file targeting Project Veritas.
Recall, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla in November attacked the First Amendment and said people who circulate misinformation about Covid jabs and dare speak ill of his product are “criminals.”
Mr. Bourla also said he was working with the FBI and CIA regarding “dark organizations” that were “targeting” Pfizer.
In October Project Veritas released a series of undercover videos exposing Pfizer – and now the FBI is at Pfizer’s beck and call targeting Project Veritas and James O’Keefe.
Judicial Watch reported:
Judicial Watch announced today the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) told Judicial Watch in a response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that it has communications from Pfizer in an investigative file targeting Project Veritas. (In October 2021, Project Veritas, a nonprofit investigative journalism organization, published two viral stories [here and here] about the Pfizer covid vaccine.)
On January 6, the FBI denied the request for all “communications regarding Project Veritas between FBI officials and employees/representatives of Pfizer” the following reason:
The material you requested is located in an investigative file which is exempt from disclosure pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(7)(A). 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(7)(A) exempts from disclosure:
records or information compiled for law enforcement purposes, but only to the extent that the production of such law enforcement records or information … could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings….
The records responsive to your request are law enforcement records; there is a pending or prospective law enforcement proceeding relevant to these responsive records, and release of the information could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings.
On January 10, the FBI denied the request for “email communications with Pfizer Inc. employees or representatives including email domains ‘@pfizer.com’ (On or after September 1, 2021),” stating: “Please be advised the FBI will neither confirm nor deny the existence of such records …”
“It is disturbing to see that Pfizer evidently has the Brandon FBI at its beck and call to target journalists at Project Veritas,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “This development is especially concerning coming on the heels of the FBI’s outrageous Ashley Brandon diary raid on the home of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe.”
Incredible work by @JudicialWatch: @Pfizer communicated with @FBI in investigation of Project Veritas. “It is disturbing to see that Pfizer evidently has the Brandon FBI at its beck and call to target journalists at Project Veritas.” https://t.co/ldJD7cdefJ pic.twitter.com/hBYeatvUrT
