VACCINE CHIEF’S BROTHER APPROVED THE RAID ON TRUMP LAWYER
Rod Rosenstein is the Deputy Attorney General who appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller and approved the infamous FBI raid on President Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen. Rosenstein is also the brother of one of the federal doctors who President Trump has by-extension accused of lying about “massive vaccinations.”
According to a bio of Rosenstein’s shortly after he was appointed Deputy Attorney General:
His sister, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, is the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases [NCIRD] at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Messonnier has a long career at the CDC going all the way back to 1995. For the past decade, she has consistently held leadership positions as a vaccine official. She has been director of NCIRD since March 2016 after serving as deputy director from October 2014. Before that, she was chief of the Meningitis and Vaccine Preventable Diseases Branch in NCIRD’s Division of Bacterial Diseases.
Messonnier was already NCIRD director at CDC when agency employees were “crying in the hallways” over Trump’s victory. And Trump’s statements over the years have given them plenty of reasons to cry.
If I were President I would push for proper vaccinations but would not allow one time massive shots that a small child cannot take - AUTISM.
I am being proven right about massive vaccinations—the doctors lied. Save our children & their future.
So many people who have children with autism have thanked me—amazing response. They know far better than fudged up reports!
Just look at the contrast between Trump’s tweets and that of Rosenstein’s sister that same year.
The papers cited in the report included none other than fugitive Poul Thorsen’s fraud. While Messonnier would rise through the ranks of the CDC to eventually become its NCIRD director, Trump would continue to broadcast his vaccine skepticism.
Months before declaring his candidacy, Trump reiterated his positions about vaccines on The Hugh Hewitt Show. Months after his campaign announcement, Trump expressed support for those same positions in the second GOP debate.
Then during the primary contests, he would again reiterate those positions to journalist Sharyl Attkisson while calling other candidates “bought off with campaign contributions.” He would later meet with Dr. Andrew Wakefield as GOP nominee and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. after becoming President-Elect. Surely anybody sympathetic to CDC’s vaccine officials would want to put a stop to such progress. Who better than one of their brothers?
How ironic that Rosenstein has the power he has because of the recusal of the comparably far-less conflicted Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He recused himself from the Russia investigation for just meeting with the Russian ambassador on two occasions. The first time was a meeting with a group of foreign ambassadors and the second culminated in an argument between Sessions and the ambassador over Ukraine. If that counts as a conflict of interest, surely Rosenstein’s sister being a top vaccine official during all of Trump’s vaccine remarks counts big time.
