(READ) HHS asked to to lift redactions on emails about ivermectin

Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) is asking Secretary Xavier Becerra of Health and Human Services (HHS) to remove redactions in the copies of 106 pages showing US public health officials sharing information about ivermectin as an effective treatment protocol for Covid-19.

The redacted documents were provided to the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations by the watchdog group Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch obtained the records via a Freedom of Information Act request.

The records contain a February 26, 2021 email from Dr. Tess Lawrie to HHS and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials apparently sharing information from the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) organization. The group concluded that “ivermectin should be approved immediately for the prevention and treatment of Covid-19.”

…shortly after then-Acting FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock received Dr. Lawrie’s email and attachment, she forwarded the message to other public health officials including Francis Collins, then-director of the National Institutes of Health, and Anthony Fauci, then-director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). It appears that in addition to forwarding Dr. Lawrie’s email, Dr. Woodcock also wrote her own message to Drs. Collins, Fauci, and others, however, that message is completely redacted. The public has a right to know what information HHS, FDA, NIH, and NIAID officials reviewed regarding the effectiveness of ivermectin and how it considered or dismissed certain data. It’s past time for HHS to lift the redactions on the enclosed 106 pages and be transparent with the American people.

    about the only politician worth having. he has done the impossible to bring clarity and been dismissed by everyone

  2. 100 pages of redactions on whether or not Ivermectin should be approved? Is there any kind of penalty for the abuse of redactions?
