Two Oregon state senators, representing American citizens with professional expertise in medicine, law, statistics and death certificate reporting, have jointly filed a formal petition for a federal grand jury investigation into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Drug Administration (FDA) reporting on COVID deaths.
The petition filed by Kim Thatcher and Dennis Linthicum, included eight exhibits and 20 references for evidentiary materials showing a clear need to formally investigate the agencies for willful misconduct.
In March 2020, according to a paper published in the journal Science, Public Health Policy, and The Law, the CDC abruptly changed how death certificates were recorded for only one type of death — COVID-19 — and circumvented multiple federal laws to do so. This hyperinflation of death certificate reporting kicked off an avalanche of data degradation and destructive public health policies.
Now, two Oregon Senators have broken their silence in an exclusive briefing about their letter and the petition calling for a thorough investigation. The project has been a months-in-the-making combined effort between scientific, legal and public policy experts.
The letter, submitted exactly one month prior to public release to protect those involved, was addressed to the Honorable Scott E. Asphaug, U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, which stated:
“What we have learned is worthy of independent State and/or Special Federal Grand Jury Investigation from our vantage point as elected state policy makers. Pursuant to 18 U.S. Code § 3332 — Powers and Duties and the case law cited within the Formal Grand Jury Petition, we respectfully request that the petition and preliminary supportive documentation be presented to the members of the grand jury we are petitioning for immediate deliberation.
“Public trust in elected officials, the Oregon Health Authority, and our ability to lead the resilient people of Oregon through this crisis has been eroded to an all-time low. The peoples’ trust in their ability to participate in their own governance and be heard by their elected officials is perhaps the most essential element for a thriving free and healthy society.
To date more than 62,200 signatures have been gathered, including thousands across Oregon where the two senators reside.
In February 2021, Stand for Health Freedom launched a public petition to gather signatures to ask U.S. Attorneys to convene a Grand Jury investigation into the CDC and FDA responses toward COVID-19 following astounding revelations concerning federal law violations and data inaccuracy.
