Robert F. Kennedy calls for the arrest of CDC consultant Poul Thorsen
Sep 26, 2017
With an overwhelming body of evidence, RFK Jr is calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take action and extradite Poul Thorsen so he can face up to his numerous crimes. In a statement, RFK Jr declared, “World Mercury Project calls upon Attorney General Jeff Sessions to extradite Thorsen back to the U.S. to face prosecution. We also call upon Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Tom Price to retract the Thorsen-affiliated autism research papers that are the fruit of illegally conducted research….”
Thorsen and his team never obtained permission from the Institutional Review Board (IRB) to do their studies, published in 2002 by the New England Journal of Medicine and in 2003 by the journal Pediatrics. As WMP explains, this alone detracts from the validity of their research, but to make matters worse, records indicate that the CDC was complicit in covering up this little “mistake.” According to the WMP report, CDC staff realized that no IRB approval had ever been granted for Thorsen’s research, but the error was simply ignored and the studies were never retracted. Freedom of Information Act documents show that supervisors at the CDC looked the other way and actively tried to conceal what transpired.
As if all that wasn’t bad enough, the story of Poul Thorsen only continues to get even darker. Back in 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice indicted Thorsen on 22 counts of wire fraud and money laundering after he stole over a million dollars in CDC grant money that was supposed to be designated for autism research. WMP explains, “The product of Thorsen’s work for CDC was a series of fraud-tainted articles on Danish autism rates that, today, form the backbone of the popular orthodoxy that vaccines don’t cause autism.”
Natural News founder and leader of CWC Labs Mike Adams has been on Poul Thorsen’s case since 2011; at that time, Adams reported that the DOJ indictment showed Thorsen had submitted over a dozen fraudulent invoices to request “reimbursement” for expenses that didn’t exist. These invoices were given to Aarhus University, where Thorsen was a faculty member. According to Adams, DOJ documents show that hundreds of thousands of dollars from the university were supposed to be transferred to CDC bank accounts. But they weren’t; instead the funds were transferred to a personal bank account belonging to…Poul Thorsen….
The Health Ranger reported on this six years ago — and things haven’t changed much since that time. Will RFK Jr’s call to action help get the ball rolling, or will the DOJ continue to sit on their hands while this criminal roams free?
