FACTS

    Former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), Rick Bright, released a redacted copy of a federal whistleblower complaint that he filed this past Tuesday.  Dr. Bright alleges that the Trump administration refused to make science-based decisions related to the coronavirus, and instead gave high-level contracts to their cronies and promoted unscientific treatment options.   Dr. Bright is asking for the Special Counsel to investigate to give him his job back because his firing was motivated by politics.  

    LEFT

    The Left is using these allegations as support for their assertion that President Trump is corrupt and puts his own interests before those of the American people.  They agree with Mr. Bright that he was fired for failing to support the President’s push to use hydroxychloroquine to treat the coronavirus.  Democratic lawmakers in the House plan to call Dr. Bright to testify, possibly as part of a plan to launch further investigations of the President.

    RIGHT

    Supporters of President Trump point to a series of Tweets from Politico journalist Dan Diamond that claim Dr. Bright was already facing removal for “incompetence and insubordination.”  Diamon also reported that internal e-mails show that before he was against Hydroxychlorquine, Dr. Bright praised the administration’s acquisition of millions of doses of the drug.  While Dr. Bright has portrayed himself as a victim, it appears he was re-assigned to a position within the National Institutes of Health.  Dr. Bright has yet to report to that post.
