Lawmakers Seek Federal Investigation for Manipulated COVID-19 Death Data Collection

According to Oregon lawmakers, the CDC adopted a “double-standard exclusively for COVID-19 data collection” that inflated cases and deaths, violated multiple federal laws and distorted mitigation efforts. 

Advised by a “large team of world-renowned doctors, epidemiologists, virologists, and attorneys,” state Sens. Kim Thatcher and Dennis Linthicum petitioned U.S. Attorney Scott Asphaug to approve a grand jury investigation into how COVID-19 data is being collected, Just the News reports. 

“Public health policy must be based upon accurate and independently verifiable data to optimize outcomes and strengthen the public’s trust in the people leading them through this crisis,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter on August 16. 

Included were attached documents to “assist grand jury members in orienting themselves to the scope of alleged crimes committed.”

Asphaug’s office announced Tuesday it referred the materials to the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs.  

“I began to really question whether the cure was worse than the disease,” Thatcher said. 

Linthicum said the “incessant case counts” for COVID-19 jumped out at him early, explaining that his service on the legislative health committee led him to recognize “confusion, or inaccuracies, or kind of manipulation” of data on influenza-like illnesses versus COVID-19. 

“It didn’t take long to actually see that the data was being scrubbed or sculpted to fit a narrative,” he said.
