The Great FOIA Dodge

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests are meant to promote government transparency and accountability and give the public access to information about the operations and decisions of federal agencies.

But serious concerns have been raised about the ascertainment of public records and the lack of transparency of federal agencies.

In recent congressional hearings, it was REVEALED that top US public health officials created ‘secret’ back channels for communications on federal business in order to avoid prying eyes.

David Morens, a former top advisor to Anthony Fauci, allegedly destroyed public documents and boasted to colleagues that he would communicate with Fauci on personal Gmail accounts to circumvent FOIA requests.

“I can either send stuff to Tony [Fauci] on his private Gmail, or hand it to him,” wrote Morens in emails presented by the House Select Subcommittee.

“[Fauci] is too smart to let colleagues send him stuff that could cause trouble,” added Morens, suggesting that Fauci himself was involved in dodging FOIAs.

In the subpoenaed emails, Morens wrote that someone in the FOIA office of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) gave him instructions on how to destroy public records, boasting that he could make emails vanish without a trace.

Morens also wrote that he would delete emails that could present as “SMOKING GUNS” to avoid implicating his long-time friend Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance, in the Covid-19 pandemic.

When Morens was questioned by the Subcommittee and asked why he was trying to hide his emails and destroy federal records, he stumbled and fumbled, he acted confused, and claimed he had little recollection of the emails.

He also claimed he had no understanding of what a federal record was, despite being a federal employee for over two decades.

“I truly dont think I have ever seen a federal record in 26 years of being at NIH,” Morens told the committee.

Many are now wondering whether there will be accountability.

The US Department of Health and Human Services has already SUSPENDED funding to EcoHealth Alliance, which has been linked to gain-of-function research in Wuhan, and COMMENCED formal debarment proceedings against Daszak.

“EcoHealth Alliance President Dr. Peter Daszak’s personal debarment will ensure he never again receives a single cent from U.S. taxpayers nor has the opportunity to start a new, untrustworthy organization,” Committee Chair Brad Wenstrup, said in a statement.

Morens however, is officially still an employee of the NIH, although he has been placed on administrative leave.

Senator Rand Paul of the US Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has written to the Department of Justice urging it to open an investigation into the alleged improper concealment and intentional destruction of records by Morens, stating;

Under 18 U.S.C. §2071, an individual who “willfully and unlawfully” conceals, removes or destroys a federal record can be fined and imprisoned for up to three years. The statute also applies to attempts to conceal, remove, or destroy a federal record.

Public health agencies have forgotten they work for the public. The deliberate obfuscation and lengthy delays in processing FOIA requests make it difficult to uncover important stories and hold these agencies to account.

I submitted a FOIA request to the US drug regulator - the FDA - which has been sitting idle for almost two years now. And when I enquired about its progress, the FDA said it was still in ‘triage.’

Hardly unsurprising, given the WANTED 75 YEARS to release THE DATA related to Pfizer’s pivotal Covid-19 mRNA trial. If it weren’t for the relentless efforts of Aaron Siri of Siri & Glimstad, these documents would still be buried in the FDAs basement.

Delays are not the only way agencies can obfuscate information. Epoch Times journalist Zachary Stieber sent a FOIA request to the US CDC which resulted in 148 pages of communications, that were entirely redacted.

Similarly, I recently received documents from a FOIA request submitted to the Australian drug regulator Җ the TGA seeking data on RNA stability testing carried out on specific batches of mRNA vaccines.

After months of delays, I finally received multiple documents which had all of the test results redacted. Below is an example of one documentcontaining 10 pages.

According to the TGA, the results contained information “of a commercial value to Pfizer, the value of which would be diminished or destroyed if released.”

Never mind that the results of this testing are of value to the public, the TGA’s primary concern is protecting the interests of Pfizer.

And, despite being unable to decipher anything meaningful from the redacted documents, I was still charged $287 for the TGA’s time to deal with my request.

None of this bodes well for establishing trust in public health agencies, and I suspect this is just the tip of the iceberg.



HEARING ADVISORY: Dr. Anthony Fauci to Testify on June 3

Press Release
House Oversight Committee
May 28, 2024

Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) will hold a hearing titled “A Hearing with Dr. Anthony Fauci” on Monday, June 3, 2024. This hearing is the first time Dr. Fauci will testify publicly since retiring from public service. Earlier this year, Dr. Fauci appeared in front of the Select Subcommittee for a closed-door, two-day, 14-hour transcribed interview. Read more about Dr. Fauci’s transcribed interview HERE and HERE. The transcript from this interview will be released prior to the public hearing.

Chairman Wenstrup issued the statement below following the public announcement of Dr. Fauci’s hearing date:

“Retirement from public service does not excuse Dr. Fauci from accountability to the American people. On June 3, Americans will have an opportunity to hear directly from Dr. Fauci about his role in overseeing our nation’s pandemic response, shaping pandemic-era polices, and promoting singular, questionable narratives about the origins of COVID-19. During Dr. Fauci’s closed-door interview in January, he testified to serious systemic failures in our public health system that deserve further investigation, including his testimony that the ‘6 feet apart’ social distancing guidance - which was used to shut down small businesses and schools across America - ‘sort of just appeared.’ This raises significant concerns about public health officials and the validity of their policy recommendations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We also learned that Dr. Fauci believes the lab leak hypothesis he publicly downplayed should not be dismissed as a conspiracy theory. As the face of America’s public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic, these statements raise serious questions that warrant public scrutiny. We look forward to Dr. Fauci’s forthcoming and honest testimony and appreciate his willingness to voluntarily appear before the Select Subcommittee for a public hearing,” said Chairman Wenstrup.
