One of the nations top vaccine experts, Rick Bright, was removed from his position right when the nation needed him the most during this pandemic, because he was a voice of reason and strength against Donald Trump's insanity and greed.

According to The Washington Post:

Rick Bright, a former top U.S. vaccine official, will testify before Congress on Thursday that the United States faces the “darkest winter in modern history” — with “unprecedented illness and fatalities” — if federal officials don’t develop a more coordinated coronavirus response before an expected resurgence later this year.

Bright alleged in a recent whistleblower complaint that he was demoted for prioritizing “science and safety over political expediency” and for raising concerns over a drug repeatedly pushed by President Trump as a possible cure for the novel coronavirus.
