The Left is getting desperate folks, they are drumming up lies and fake news all over the place to start investigations as soon as possible. The New York Times, Blasey Ford’s lawyers, and Democrats are teaming up to try and impeach the President over hydroxychloroquine.
On Wednesday, NYT’s Maggie Haberman claimed she had a bombshell story that an FDA official named Rick Bright was fired for bravely contradicting the President claiming that hydroxychloroquine was was dangerous.
Breaking News: A doctor who led a U.S. agency helping to develop a coronavirus vaccine says he was removed because he questioned the promotion of hydroxychloroquine, a drug endorsed by President Trump without rigorous vetting https://t.co/WShFySmZuv https://t.co/LeiAnBnUXS

The mainstream media jumped on the story, repeating the conspiracy everywhere. It turns out the story from the New York Times is 100% FALSE.
It was Bright that actually requested the FDA to give emergency approval for the use of hydroxychloroquine, he was a cheerleader for its use.
In March, Rick Bright requested the FDA issue an “Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for emergency use of oral formulations of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate for the treatment of 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19)…” https://t.co/ZKZJB17v32 pic.twitter.com/uFB6Ymkq1k

But that is just the start, it wasn’t that Bright opposed the President it was that the Administration did not like his management style or his leadership, they’ve been trying to get rid of him for a year. Politico discovered that Bright actually praised the President for pushing the use of hydroxychloroquine.
The Trump administration has been working to oust Bright since last year, as officials battled with him over his management and leadership.

Now take a look at this…Christine Blasey Ford’s – from the Kavanaugh hearings – attorneys are now representing Bright because he claims he was fired for “bravely” opposing the President. As we have shown above even the libs at Politico busted that myth.
BRIGHT is being represented by Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, who have a whistleblower practice (and who also repped Christine Blasey Ford) https://t.co/V7Vbxg1qxk

It’s like the Democrats are taking the Russia hoax, Ukraine in the virus, and playing a horrible mixtape.
As one Twitter user commented, “The Left really wants to try the demolition derby approach to the coronavirus don’t they?”
