On Tuesday, Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, announced that he intends to ask the state’s Supreme Court to call a grand jury to look into “any and all malfeasance” with the COVID-19 vaccines.
The Republican governor, who is frequently cited as a potential 2024 presidential candidate, did not specify what misbehavior the panel would look into, but he did hint that it might be partly intended to elicit more information regarding the vaccines.
He made the announcement after a roundtable discussion with Florida’s Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo and a group of scientists and medical professionals.
During the debate, some focus was on the fact that pharmaceutical companies have not given their data on the COVID-19 vaccines to independent researchers.
DeSantis asserted, “We’ll be able to collect the data whether they want to give it or not.
“In Florida, it is against the law to mislead and make false statements, particularly when discussing the effectiveness of a medicine.”
Florida just “gained $3.2 billion through legal action against individuals responsible for the drug crisis,” according to DeSantis.
So, it’s not like this is an unprecedented occurrence.
DeSantis stated that he anticipates receiving approval for the appointment of the state-wide grand jury, most likely in the Tampa Bay region.
According to DeSantis, “it will come via judicial processes that will be able to gather more details and bring legal justice to those who committed malfeasance.”
