The Texas physician's allegation stemmed from a revelation by former New York Times (NYT) reporter Alex Berenson as part of the Twitter Files made public by Twitter CEO Elon Musk. It outlined how Pfizer director and former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb tipped the Big Tech firm to suppress a tweet casting doubt on the Pfizer mRNA vaccine's effectiveness.
Gottlieb emailed Twitter executive Todd O'Boyle to complain about a tweet by Adm. Brett Giroir, an assistant secretary of health in the Trump administration. Aside from questioning the Pfizer vaccine, Giroir's post endorsed the superiority of natural immunity over the injections. But according to the Pfizer board member, the former assistant secretary was "corrosive" and could "end up going viral and driving news coverage negatively."
"Gottlieb defrauded America for the profits of Pfizer," McCullough told Clayton Morris of Redacted News. "Being a former FDA commissioner now is used as a false title. It's used as a pretext that he would carry honesty and integrity from a government position into a paid board member position."
Aside from Gottlieb, the well-known cardiologist also cited other former government officials who later joined entities with "vested interests" in COVID-19 pandemic revenues. Among those he cited include former FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn and Rick Bright, former director of the Department of Health and Human Services' Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).
Hahn later joined Flagship Pioneering – the venture capital firm behind vaccine maker Moderna – as its chief medical officer. Meanwhile, Bright joined the Rockefeller Foundation to serve as its senior vice president of pandemic prevention and response.
In a piece published on his Substack, Berenson argued that the Pfizer board member was "financially motivated" to have Giroir's tweet suppressed. The tweet from the U.S. Public Health Service admiral that emphasized the superiority of natural immunity was putting the New York-based drug manufacturer's profits in jeopardy, he continued.
Moreover, the former NYT science reporter said Gottlieb later complained about a tweet from lockdown and vaccine skeptic Justin Hart. Gottlieb targeted Berenson himself as the Pfizer director reported the journalist's article tackling the failure of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
Berenson reminded his readers how Pfizer has a long history of violating drug industry laws and ethics rules. In 2009, it agreed to pay $2.3 billion to resolve criminal and civil liability arising from the illegal promotion of certain pharmaceutical products – such as the painkiller Bextra, the antipsychotic drug Geodon, the anti-epileptic drug Lyrica and the antibiotic Zyvox.
In 1996, it conducted a clinical trial of an antibiotic in Nigeria in which 11 children died and many others were left with serious injuries. The parents of four Nigerian children who died in the drug trial were the first awardees of a $175,000 compensation in 2009 after more than a decade legal battle against the drug company. The payout was issued after the parents submitted DNA samples to prove that the four casualties were indeed their children.

"There is a very deep, corrupt collusion and conflict of interest between industry and our public health agencies. And the mechanism is basically these interrelationships that occur when people are in office to get their next job after they leave office," McCullough emphasized.
