Pfizer Whistleblower: Corporate Coverup of Aborted Baby Cell Usage in Vaccine Testing

"They're being so deceptive in their emails. It's almost like it is in the final vaccine. It just made me not trust it. . ."

Originally appeared at: Project Veritas

Project Veritas released the fifth video in its COVID vaccine investigative series today featuring a sit-down interview with Pfizer insider, Melissa Strickler. She leaked internal emails that show corporate executives telling staff to be secretive about the use of human fetal tissue in laboratory testing of the COVID vaccine.

The whistleblower has created a GiveSendGo crowdfunding campaign for herself now that she has gone public. People can support her directly by donating at the following web address:


Melissa Strickler: I work at a pharmaceutical company. I'm not an anti-vaxxer. I just believe in research and science. 

James: O'Keefe: In this database, you came across a chain of emails, discussing fetal tissue and the COVID vaccine. Vanessa Gelman, who works in Washington, DC, is senior director over a research. Question came up as an inquiry to our med info group. They're asking, "did make use of a cell line from an aborted foetus [sic]?" 

Melissa Strickler:  [...] To leave out the highlighted part, which is the: "one or more cell lines with an origin that can be traced back to human fetal tissue has been used in laboratory tests associated with the vaccine program." 

James: O'Keefe: And here we have your badge. You are an employee of Pfizer. 

Melissa Strickler: I work at the McPherson, Kansas plant. It's one of the biggest plants in the operation of Pfizer, we produce some of the most units. 

James: O'Keefe: This message from Vanessa Gelman:

Melissa Strickler: "From the perspective of corporate affairs, we want to avoid having the information on the fetal cell lines floating out there. We believe that the risk of communicating this right now outweighs any potential benefit that we could see, particularly, with the general members of the public who may take this information and use it in ways we may not want it out there. We have not received any questions from policymakers or media on this issue in the last few weeks, so we want to avoid raising this if possible."

James: O'Keefe: Wow. "We believe that the risk of communicating this right now, outweighs any potential benefit we could see." They had to put that on American currency [...] Philip Dormitzer, vice-president and chief scientific officer. These are not low-level people here. You're showing us emails between the vice president of Pfizer, the senior director of worldwide research about how to couch it a certain way, because we would not want to tell the people that it can be traced back to human fetal tissue [...] Copying Vanessa Gelman:

"We have an approved answer to this question". The question being about fetal tissue. "Which [Vanessa] can probably provide. HEK293T". What does that mean, HEK cells?"

Melissa Strickler: "Human Embryonic Kidney cells. And it was from experiment 293."

James: O'Keefe: They've used cells from aborted fetuses. 

Melissa Strickler: Yes. 

James: O'Keefe: And they don't want the public to know that.

Melissa Strickler: Yes 

James: O'Keefe: That's staggering for society because of what you said, religious exemptions. 

Melissa Strickler: And they're denying our religious exemptions at Pfizer.

James: O'Keefe: This is serious stuff you're dealing with. These are powerful people. A very powerful company. 

Melissa Strickler: They're withholding knowledge on people's approval if they can consent or not 

James: O'Keefe: From Sarah Elizabeth Weiser, the principal scientist

Melissa Strickler: She's just making sure, you know, just be clear, you would like medical information to reply with the text in red below, including the highlighted section. "Thanks again." And they responded with:

James: O'Keefe: "No, I would prefer that we do not use the text in yellow". 

Melissa Strickler: They're being so deceptive in their emails. It's almost like it is in the final vaccine. It just made me not trust it. 

James: O'Keefe: There was an issue with the FDA and... 

Melissa Strickler: I heard something about, they're doing some sort of tests in there with lights, but I'm not sure. And I said, in an unoccupied room and in a group lead office and then he goes, "Well, the FDA is coming". I could not believe that they were blacking out windows down in our manufacturing rooms [...] We are told that you should be seen at all times that we need to make sure that we have high integrity and the rooms that are like this one, where you can see my reflection it's a group lead office where they just do the paperwork for the batches. So why does that need blackout? 

James: O'Keefe: And why did you decide to come to Project Veritas?

Melissa Strickler: Because I felt it was the right thing to do. I feel like I have no one else to turn to when my own company won't be honest with me. What I was told to do was to trust Project Veritas, and to go with you guys by lawmakers, by lawyers... 

James: O'Keefe: Really? 

Melissa Strickler: I was really genuinely traumatized in a second from the things I saw and I needed to leave there. So I just took a leave of absence so that I could gather my thoughts and really kind of heal from this information.

James: O'Keefe: The extraordinary act of blowing the whistle on the company and publishing emails from their vice-president is another step entirely. Are you afraid of doing this?

Melissa Strickler: A little bit. I have faith that I'll be protected or whatever the outcome is, is what it's supposed to be. So I'm at peace with it. I'm a little anxious on what they'll do or what they'll say, but it needs to be seen by the people because they're trying to get this to kids. And if they're being this deceptive about it, I don't feel comfortable being silent.
