Trump Targets Susan Collins In Whistleblower Rant

The Washington Post reports:

After former top vaccine official Rick Bright maintained Sunday that the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been slow and chaotic, President Trump responded in a late-night tweetstorm, saying that whistleblowers like Bright are “causing great injustice and harm” to the nation.

In an interview with “60 Minutes,” Bright, the former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, criticized the government for failing to have a clear plan in place to address the totality of the American outbreak.

He reiterated claims that he was reassigned to a less respected role within the Department of Health and Human Services last month after raising concerns regarding the drug hydroxychloroquine, pushed by Trump as a possible cure for the novel coronavirus, and trying to “prioritize science and safety over political expediency.”
