Experts testified during a hearing in Washington.
Members of Congress were warned about DNA fragments found in the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine during a hearing on Nov. 13.
Dr. Robert Malone, who helped develop the messenger RNA (mRNA) technology used in the shot, was one of the witnesses testifying at a hearing in Washington convened by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
The vaccine contains a DNA sequence known as Simian Virus 40 (SV40), which was kept from at least some regulators. Dr. Malone told the hearing that the sequence leaves residual DNA that could cause problems.
“That’s a proven genotoxicity risk,” that’s what he said.
He later added that the fragments could be causing the unusual types of cancers that have emerged since the vaccines’ introduction.
“I speculate that what we may find is that the cancer risk here may be partially attributed to these DNA contaminations; that would be consistent with the peer reviewed literature,” Dr. Malone went on to say. “And by the way, these DNA fragments may also be shown to contribute to genetic anomalies in fetus[es], which is one of the most prominent causes of premature abortion.”
Dr. Kimberly Biss, an obstetrician-gynecologist, testified at the hearing that she was concerned about the vaccines’ impact on unborn children, given the rise in miscarriages among her patients.
Dr. Malone previously stated that the inclusion of the sequence indicates that the vaccine is tainted and that the FDA should recall it. The FDA told The Epoch Times that “no safety concerns related to the sequence of, or amount of, residual DNA have been identified” and that the shot would not be recalled.
It is unknown whether the FDA conducted any testing to support its position. The FDA refused to answer many questions about the sequence, including when and from whom it learned about it.
According to both Health Canada and the European Medicines Agency, Pfizer and BioNTech failed to highlight the inclusion of the sequence when submitting paperwork.
“The rules are that you don’t draw conclusions without data,” explained Dr. Malone. “Normally, historically, one has to perform rigorous genotoxicity and insertional mutagenesis assays,” but there is no evidence that the FDA performed or ordered those tests.
Pfizer and BioNTech have yet to respond to inquiries.
Dr. Malone noted on his blog that directly injecting DNA into living hosts has “potential problems, including the possibility of insertional mutagenesis, which could lead to the activation of oncogenes or the inhibition of tumor suppressor genes.”
Other outside doctors have expressed concern that the fragments left behind could cause problems.
“Plasmid DNA poses a low but non-zero risk of insertional mutagenesis of normal stem cells,” Phillip Buckhaults, a professor at the University of South Carolina’s College of Pharmacy, wrote this week on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“I have transfected billions of cells with DNA fragments during my career and I have an informed intuitive sense (based on data and experience) for the in vivo cancer risks posed by low level DNA contamination in these products,” he wrote in a blog post. “I believe the risk is comparable to that of smoking and lung cancer, or excessive sun exposure and melanoma.” The risk is significant enough to warrant investigation and mitigation.”
Mr. Buckhaults is one of the scientists who tested vaccine vials and discovered the DNA.
According to the Epoch Times, the testing by independent scientists prompted Health Canada to confirm the presence of the sequence.
Lawmakers Weigh In
During the hearing, Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio) stated that he has spoken with constituents who have broken down and cried because they were forced to get vaccinated in order to keep their jobs.
“They were coerced into taking this vaccine. And they were very concerned about the side effects,” he explained before asking Dr. Malone if the vaccine leaves a “persistent marker.”
Dr. Malone stated that testing has revealed that the modified mRNA remains in the body for weeks or even months and that, due to regulators’ lack of testing, “we don’t know precisely how long these products remain in your body.”
Mr. Davidson believes that what happened during the pandemic demonstrates how the House of Representatives should form a health-care committee.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) expressed concern that many people who were injured by the COVID-19 vaccines may not be aware of their injuries due to complications such as blood clots caused by other factors.
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) bemoaned the departure of two top FDA officials, Marion Gruber and Dr. Philip Krause, during the pandemic due to the FDA’s rushed approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
“The triggering event—and I’ve talked to both of them—is when they were forced to approve something using methods that were political in nature, reasoning that was political in nature, instead of scientific in nature,” Mr. Massie told me.
If those experts had remained, “we would have caught some of these things,” he claimed.
When it comes to vaccines, Ms. Greene believes there is a need for accountability and transparency.
“This is in my opinion, the worst thing that’s ever happened to our country in my lifetime in the world, and the government’s role cannot be denied,” she said in the closing minutes of the hearing. “And I share all your sentiment as well as most Americans that are outraged and angered and continue to be angered over the fact that no one has ever been held accountable.”
She stated that she will hold additional hearings in the future and that she sees growing support among colleagues.
