Project Veritas has released hidden-camera footage purporting to show a Pfizer official revealing plans to mutate COVID-19 viruses before assaulting the film crew and Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe.
In the footage, the official believes he’s on a date when he says Pfizer aims to evolve the virus to preemptively make vaccines for it. He says he thinks similar research is “the way that the virus started in Wuhan.”
The official, Jordon Trishton Walker, is described on “internal Pfizer docs” shared by O’Keefe as a director of research and development, strategic operations and mRNA scientific planning.
Walker describes the COVID pandemic as a “cash cow,” and says it would be “perfect” if Pfizer could research new virus mutations while developing the vaccines to cure them.
“If we’re going to do that, though, there’s a risk,” Walker says. “As you could imagine, no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating f-cking viruses. You have to be like, very controlled to make sure that this virus that you mutate doesn’t create something that like, you know, goes everywhere.”
He cautions that any mutation work at Pfizer is in the early stages.
“They’re going slow because everyone’s very cautious,” he says. “Obviously they don’t want to accelerate it too much, but I think they’re also just trying to do it as an exploratory thing, because you obviously don’t want to advertise that you’re trying to figure out future mutations.”
A second Project Veritas video shows Walker’s reaction to realizing he’d been filmed. He loudly calls the police, tells them he’s being filmed by “five white people,” and tells O’Keefe that he’d only been “trying to impress a person on a date by lying.”
Even as restaurant owners ask them to leave, Walker demands that O’Keefe stay so the police can see his crew.
O’Keefe’s crew tries to leave, but the door is locked, leading to an escalating argument that ends with Walker smashing O’Keefe’s iPad on the floor. He picks it up, smashes it again, then starts running away with it before being interrupted by a crew member.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Thursday publicly sent a letter to Pfizer CEO and President Albert Bourla asking for transparency on any work to mutate COVID-19.
“Any effort to make a virus more transmittable and deadlier is careless and dangerous,” Rubio stated.
