On Thursday testifying before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce’s health subcommittee is Dr. Rick Bright who on May 5th, filed a whistleblower compliant alleging that his early warnings about PPE shortages regarding the coronavirus U.S. outbreak were ignored and that his caution against using Hydroxychloroquine, led to his removal as the director of the office involved with developing a vaccine for the coronavirus.

According to CNN, who was provided Bright’s prepared remarks, Bright, now a senior adviser at the National Institutes of Health, is expected to urge the Trump administration to increase the production of essential equipment, establish both a national test strategy, as well as a national standard for procuring supplies. Bright also calls on top officials to lead by example by wearing face coverings and to practice social distancing.

President Impeached via Twitter said that he didn’t know Bright, had “never heard of him,” but to him Bright is just a “disgruntled employee,” who was “not liked or respect.” He added that this person he doesn’t know or ever heard of “should no long be working for our government.”

Courthouse News Brandi Buchman will be live-tweeting testimony that starts around 10 a.m. D.C. time.

CBS News offered a preview of Bright’s interview with CBS News reporter Norah O’Donnell, airing May 17th.
