Sen. Ron Johnson calls Big Pharma and Biden administration the 'COVID Cartel' for pandemic narrative

"I'm quite certain this is a manmade virus," Johnson said, referring to COVID-19.

Wisconsin GOP Sen. Ron Johnson referred to Big Pharma and the Biden administration as the "COVID Cartel," for controlling the narrative around COVID-19. 

"We're up against powerful forces," Johnson said on the Thursday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "I term them the 'COVID Cartel,' primarily the Biden administration, the federal health agencies, Big Pharma – who have captured the federal health agencies – as well as the media. They captured the media as well."

A report late last year from House Intelligence Committee Republicans alleged that the COVID-19 virus may have been linked to a Chinese weapons program. 

"I'm quite certain this is a manmade virus," Johnson said, referring to COVID-19. "And I am quite certain that hundreds of thousands of people died that didn't have to. And I'm quite certain that the vaccine causes death and other serious injury. It's not being reported on. The CDC and FDA are completely ignoring their own safety surveillance systems."

Johnson has been one of the most vocal members in the Senate regarding accountability for COVID-19 vaccine injuries and the origins of the disease.

Earlier this year, he wrote a letter where he demanded that the CDC supply him with complete data on the side effects of COVID-19 vaccines, alleging that the agency has withheld material information from his office.

"Since June 2022, despite multiple requests for information, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has repeatedly failed to provide my office with complete data regarding its surveillance of COVID-19 vaccine adverse events," the letter to CDC Director Rochelle Walensky reads.

Johnson said that Big Pharma, federal agencies, and the Biden administration will never admit wrongdoing regarding vaccine safety or the origins of COVID-19.

"What's maybe more troubling is our federal health agencies completely ignoring it," he said. "They're just blowing it off, as is the news media –the COVID Cartel. They will never admit they're wrong."
