Bring the Case: Prosecute CDC Officials

Kent legalBy Louis Conte and Wayne Rohde


Much has been said about what Dr. William Thompson disclosed to Dr. Brian Hooker in a series of legally recorded phone conversations in 2014. The book, Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing Autism Research Fraud at the CDC by Kevin Barry and the film, Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, by Andrew Wakefield, together lay out what amounts to a case of scientific fraud and corruption at the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention.

The federal government has taken no action.

On July 29, 2015, United States Congressman William Posey said the following on the floor of the House of Representatives:

Mr. Speaker, I respectfully request the following excerpts from the statement written by Dr. Thompson be entered into the record. Now quoting Dr. Thompson:

“My primary job duties while working in the Immunization Safety Branch from 2000 to ’06 were lead or co-lead three major vaccine safety studies—the MADDSP MMR Autism Cases Control study was being carried out in response to the Wakefield Lancet study that suggested an association between the MMR vaccine and an autism-like health outcome. There were several major concerns among scientists and consumer advocates outside the CDC in the fall of 2000 regarding the execution of the Verstraeten study.

One of the important goals that was determined up front in the spring of ’01 before any of these studies started, was to have all three protocols vetted outside the CDC prior to the start of the analyses so that consumer advocates could not claim that we were presenting analyses that presented our own goals and biases. We hypothesized that if we found statistically significant effects at either 18- or 36-month thresholds, we would conclude that vaccinating children early with MMR could lead to autism-like characteristics or features. We all met and finalized the study protocol and analysis plan. The goal was to not deviate from the analysis plan to avoid the debacle that occurred with the Verstraeten thimerosal study published in Pediatrics in ’03.  At the September 5th meeting, we discussed in detail how to code race for both the sample and the birth certificate sample.

At the bottom of Table 7 it also shows that for the non-birth certificate sample, the adjusted race effect statistical significance was huge.  All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September ’02 not to report any race effects for the paper.  Sometime soon after the meeting, we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study.  The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.  However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DOJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office and I retained all associated computer files. I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper.” “

End of quote of Dr. Thompson.

Mr. Speaker, I believe it’s our duty to ensure that the documents that Dr. Thompson provided are not ignored. Therefore I will provide them to members of Congress and the House Committees upon request. Considering the nature of the whistleblower’s documents, as well as the involvement of the CDC, a hearing and a thorough investigation is warranted. So I ask Mr. Speaker, I beg, I implore my colleagues on the Appropriations Committees to please, please take such action. Thank you, Mr. Speaker, I yield back.

Still, the federal government has done nothing.

It is time to bring the case.

Dr. William Thompson describes a pattern of conduct by federal employees that runs afoul of at least the following federal law (and likely many more):

18 U.S.C. §1519. Destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in Federal investigations and bankruptcy

“Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”

Let’s be clear here – the actions of those around Dr. Thompson were not perpetrated because of a sincere disagreement about scientific protocol. These conspirators destroyed, altered and manipulated scientific data that they knew would be very, very important in federal judicial proceedings underway in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) and that could potentially create billions of dollars of liability. Over five thousand cases were filed against the Secretary of Health and Human Services – the agency that administers the CDC - on behalf of children in the Omnibus Autism Proceedings (OAP) alleging that vaccine injuries led to the children’s autism.

The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act removed virtually all product liability from vaccine manufacturers. With the pharmaceutical industry protected, the federal government was on the hook for billions of dollars in compensation payments to these children. Even worse, the reputation of the government’s vaccine program and the public health establishment would forever be tarnished, if not permanently destroyed.

The motive for the actions of Dr. Julie Gerbeding’s CDC employees is clear. And after leaving the CDC, Dr. Gerberding became the head of Merck’s vaccine division a year and a day later – the shortest possible legal time interval.

It is important to note that Dr. Thompson and the other researchers wanted to avoid a repeat of the earlier allegations of data manipulation that circulated around the earlier Verstraeten paper. “The goal was to not deviate from the analysis plan to avoid the debacle that occurred with the Verstraeten thimerosal study published in Pediatrics in ’03.” But the data revealed a problem: “…the adjusted race effect statistical significance was huge. All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September ’02 not to report any race effects for the paper.”

While the CDC Vaccine Safety Branch may have wanted to avoid another Verstraeten debacle, they slammed into a wall of statistical truth that showed an association between vaccines and autism. If they published the truth, the Secretary of Health and Human Services would have to get the checkbook out.

Instead, the CDC Vaccine Safety branch obstructed justice that should have been rendered in the Omnibus Autism Proceeding – its employees altered, manipulated, concealed, falsified and destroyed data that the Special Masters would have relied upon. Without this data, they dismissed the vast majority of cases without compensation.

The Special Masters primarily relied on the Thompson/CDC Vaccine Safety Branch research and the research of Poul Thorsen, who is still a fugitive hiding in plain sight in Denmark.  He has yet to be extradited to the U.S. to face federal indictment for stealing CDC grant money. Dr. Thorsen was brought into the autism/vaccine research by the same CDC Vaccine Safety staff that produced the paper Dr. Thompson now says was fraudulent.

Like Dr. Thompson, Dr. Thorsen produced research that also played funny games with data. He excluded data showing that autism rates dropped in Denmark after thimerosal, a mercury-based vaccine preservative, was removed from vaccines, but published a paper saying the opposite.

Dr. Thorsen played the same game - manipulating, falsifying and altering data to serve a pre-determined outcome. He simply went one step further by stealing CDC grant money – and who knows what the real purpose for that money was or who enabled it to be stolen?

There is a pattern of conduct here – Drs. Verstraeten, Thorsen and now DeStefano, Bhasin, Thompson, Yeargin-Allsopp and Boyle - that puts Dr. William Thompson’s statements in the context of a larger criminal conspiracy to knowingly manipulate, alter, falsify, conceal and even destroy research that showed that vaccines are responsible for a significant proportion of the autism epidemic among America’s children and young adults.

Dr. Thompson’s statements have only gained more legitimacy from the growing rebellion at the CDC where other researchers have stepped forward to criticize the excessive influence of private industry over the agency.  According to Carey Gillam at the Huffington Post, “A group calling itself CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research, or CDC SPIDER, put a list of complaints in writing in a letter to the CDC Chief of Staff and provided a copy of the letter to the public watchdog organization U.S. Right to Know (USRTK). The members of the group have elected to file the complaint anonymously for fear of retribution.”

Many industry enablers in the mainstream, pharmaceutical-supported media will argue that there is no case, no conspiracy and that no crimes have been committed. They will argue that people like us, the authors, are conspiracy theorists.


Ask the following questions:

Has the pharmaceutical industry manipulated data in the recent past?


Is the CDC under excessive industry influence and does that influence alter research outcomes?

Yes, according to CDC SPIDER.

Was there a significant motive at the CDC to obstruct justice on research related to vaccines and autism?


Has the CDC attempted to prevent Dr. Thompson from saying more on the record?

Yes.  CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden has blocked Dr. Thompson from testifying in a malpractice suit on vaccine-induced autism because “Dr. William Thompson’s deposition testimony would not substantially promote the objectives of CDC or HHS (Health and Human Services).”

If there was nothing here, wouldn’t the CDC want Dr. Thompson to testify, clarify his statements and put the whole matter to rest?

The criminal conduct of a few federal employees has denied tens of thousands of children and young adults and their families of simple justice, justice which federal law is meant to guarantee to them. This conduct has resulted in more autism, incalculable suffering and horrendous costs to families, local and state governments and ultimately to the federal government for healthcare and special education costs.

An apology and a few billion dollars in fines will not end this debacle in the way other pharmaceutical industry “missteps” have ended.

People need to be dragged out of their offices in handcuffs to court and then, after public trials revealing the truth and rendering guilty verdicts, packed away to prison. The suffering caused requires it. The government and the country must send the message that this may never happen again.

Question Authority.  Ask the questions and seek the truth from our government.  Hold them accountable for their actions.

We need now only a few honest prosecutors.  It is time to bring the case.

One more thing besides being dragged off in handcuff, etc. - all those found guilty should have all their assets stripped (also looking at where those assets may have been transferred, e.g. in spouse's name) and pooled to provide a fund for the care and on=going support of those damaged by vaccines.


It is against the law to throw data paid by the tax payer away, in garbage cans.

Sharyl Atkinson in a recent article went through all the good and bad policies under President Obama. One bad one, that stuck out for me; was that more whistle blowers were prosecuted under him than - well I forgot - more than most or the most ever?

Dr. William Thompson done well to obtain a whistle blower lawyer, that is for dang sure.

There is no end to those responsible, really! I mean we should go all the way back to ol'e Dr. James Cherry who appeared on TV a lot. He was for me the first of a long line of Dr. Paul Offits.

If you think about it the federal agencies are under the direction of Congress? Yeah, they should be prosecuted. The president of the United States should be prosecuted for that matter.

When it comes to federal agencies the buck stop with the president, or in this case lots of past presidents. Lots of past Congressmen and Senators too. I would be fine with that too.

Then again Who had the big bucks to turn all of these politicians' head - pharma -- can any of them be prosecuted?
I would love to see prosecuted those two unelected pharma suits that stood right beside Senator Pan, right in the people's house of government and advised him like they were really something. I guess if you have the money it counts for everything. Which gets us to Dr. Senator Pan looking like Pinocchio going off with the bad boys to become donkeys, state level politicians should be prosecuted too.

I would be happy and fine with it going there too. However: the actual henchmen at the CDC will have to do, and even then we will be darn lucky.

If we can actually get this under control first; actually have vaccine safety studies, find out the actual whys and hows of what is going on - I think we have to have people going to jail, or it will happen again in some other way, in some other place. Examples have to be made to put a little fear in some people in high places that they are not above the law.

Above the law , I guess James Cherry got away with it. Hope that is not the case for the others with in the CDC.

Denise Anderstrom Douglass

Yup, CDC for prison... I think I'd like a hat like that...


Bob; Thanks for the brief flash of a wonderful dream. Dragged out their offices in hand cuffs.
Aimee Doyle has it right too. A bunch of Congressmen dragging their feet - putting on shows pretending they are have some kind of important fact finding meeting when all they are doing is putting on a show, doing some speeches, and thinking that is enough to satisfy the American public.

Not this time, baby! Not in a long shot. They don't do better with in the year it should surprise the Congressmen if they know anything that it might turn into Bastille time.

Cherry Misra

Sorry- I forgot to add- LONG LIVE ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR. !

Cherry Misra

Hello Kapoore- Be careful, I think you have just published the best possible way for the pharmaceutical industry to respond to the current situation. Here's the deal - Talk about the side that was discredited and debunked, Now, next- talk about the opposing side that was discredited and debunked. Use very long sentences with poor punctuation and lots of repetition of discredited and debunked. Add a few more words such as delayed, distracted, demanded. denied. Way to go ! big pharma, , Way to go , truth-hating media - Everyone has given up reading and turned on CNN or a football game

Gary Ogden

Another thought: The Inspector General of the CDC, or whatever he/she is called, and who has been conducting an investigation of the Dr. Thompson allegations at the pace of a snail stuck in molasses, will, in nine days, have the political cover to do the right thing.

Gary Ogden

Think they've lawyered-up yet? I wouldn't be surprised. This prosecution will have to come after the swearing in of the new AG. Godspeed.


The New York Times said "the discredited theory that vaccines cause autism." I wonder what they will print when the studies that proved vaccines don't cause autism are discredited?

Aimee Doyle

What has Bill Posey done with the thousands of pages of whistleblower documents that he was given by Dr. Thompson? I haven't heard anything about it since that statement in 2015 - a year and a half ago,

Why haven't these documents been turned over to the Government Oversight committee - which has (for the entire time) been chaired by Republicans and which has a Republican majority? If the documents have been turned over to the Government Oversight committee, then why haven't they held hearings? Hearings will publicize an issue - and then public pressure can force the government to take action.

I feel that these congressmembers should be held accountable for not taking action when they clearly have the evidence they need to take action.

Gary Ogden

Amen to this. The OAP was the worst miscarriage of justice in U.S. history. We must re-establish the principle that nobody is above the law, especially when it comes to harming children. No more pediatric quackery!

go Trump

A few walking out of the CDC in handcuffs would make a great photo.
There are a few at the NIH & CHOPS that need the same treatment.

The mainstream news might then report that it was the RUSSIANS that took mercury out of their vaccines and placed it in ours….

Onward !!!

Hans Litten

"Over 200 viruses cause influenza and influenza-like illness which produce the same symptoms (fever, headache, aches and pains, cough and runny noses). Without laboratory tests, doctors cannot tell the two illnesses apart. Both last for days and rarely lead to death or serious illness. At best, vaccines might be effective against only Influenza A and B, which represent about 10% of all circulating viruses." (Source: Cochrane Summaries)."

For Cia\Eindeker or anyone else banging on about the Fake-Flu Vaccine .

Hans Litten

The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and vaccines are seriously dodgy
Let’s protect all our kids & not give this fake medicine anymore.

Agreeing with everything that Bob has written .

Bob Moffit

"People need to be dragged out of their offices in handcuffs to court and then, after public trials revealing the truth and rendering guilty verdicts, packed away to prison. The suffering caused requires it. The government and the country must send the message that this may never happen again."

Amen to that.

I cannot help but think of the personal terror seizing those that KNOW of .. and .. even worse .. participated in .. the decades of "scientific manipulation of data" to deny the scientific evidence of harm being caused by U.S. vaccines and the policies by which they are recommended, approved and administered.

I suspect .. and .. fervently hope .. those involved at the highest levels are having a hard time sleeping peacefully at night .. and .. I also suspect they are spending their days at work filling large plastic garbage bags .. filled with the shredded volumes of potential "evidence" that as accumulated over decades .. carefully secreted from public view.

Too bad someone hasn't hacked the CDC and HHS emails .. but .. who knows .. maybe someone already has?
