(LifeSiteNews) — A new bombshell report by Project Veritas appears to show a top-ranking Pfizer employee suggesting that the major pharmaceutical company might be considering intentionally creating mutated forms of COVID-19 in the interest of preemptively developing new injections. The report has generated millions of views on social media and sparked calls for a criminal investigation into Pfizer. 

In the video, released by the investigative organization late Wednesday night and subsequently racking up over 10 million views, a man identified as a Pfizer executive tells Project Veritas’ undercover reporter that COVID-19 has been a “cash cow” for the company, and said it may be looking into creating mutant strains of the virus in order to “preemptively develop new vaccines” though that’s “not what we say to the public.”

The man is identified in the video as Jordon Trishton Walker, a Director of Research and Development for Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning at Pfizer. 

LifeSiteNews has attempted to independently verify whether Walker is currently or has been in the past an employee of Pfizer. An apparent LinkedIn profile connected with Walker seems to have been deleted, but a Signal Hire page appears to confirm his identity and role with Pfizer. Intelligence analyst Brian O’Shea has also done a detailed investigation that backs up Walker’s identity and role.

LifeSiteNews has reached out to Pfizer for comment, and has also contacted Project Veritas for additional information.

In the video, the individual identified as Walker said that if Pfizer decides to generate COVID mutations it would face a “risk,” since “no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating f**king viruses.”

“Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone,” Walker tells the Project Veritas journalist. 

He added it would be necessary to ensure the artificially mutated virus doesn’t create an outbreak, noting that he believes that experimentation on viruses in Wuhan, China led to the COVID-19 pandemic itself.

“Like, it makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere,” he said. “It’s bullsh*t.”

Walker also shot down suggestions that the potential research by Pfizer would amount to “gain of function,” a term used to describe the artificial enhancement of viruses. Some have argued that researchers engaged in such research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where many believe the coronavirus originated.

Instead, Walker called the potential research “directed evolution,” and said researchers are “going slow” with the process as an “exploratory thing.”

“The way it would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them,” he said.

mRNA pioneer Dr. Robert Malone responded to the investigative report, arguing that the process explained by Walker in the video amounts to gain-of-function. He also raised concerns about another part of the video, in which Walker appeared to suggest that officials in governmental regulatory agencies “eventually come [and] work for pharma companies.”

According to Walker, regulators who want to leave their jobs and work in the pharmaceutical industry “are not going to be as harsh on the company where they’re getting their job.”

“The gentleman in your investigative work has clearly indicated that Pfizer believes that it has successfully captured the regulatory apparatus of the United States government, and presumably worldwide,” Malone said. 

British activist and podcaster Maajid Nawaz noted that Project Veritas’ bombshell investigative report “contains what would be damning testimony against Pfizer. So serious is it that it could bring the entire company down, and place Big Pharma into irreparable disrepute.”

However, for that reason itself he also urged caution.

“The ‘information’ that is so flippantly volunteered here alleges serious and globally criminal industrial secrets, the casual revealing of the likes of which has been known to previously lead to scientists being found dead,” Nawaz pointed out. 

“The young man JTW in the Veritas video doesn’t appear to be the type of personality who has yet embraced any determination to speak the truth regardless of consequence, and the consequences here would be severe,” he continued, suggesting the entire scenario could be a set-up.

A separate video released by Project Veritas on Thursday shows Walker reacting strongly after being confronted by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, calling the police and threatening to sue O’Keefe.

In the video, Walker said he had been “lying” about the virus research in an effort to impress the undercover journalist, with whom he believed he was on a date.

He told O’Keefe he’s “not even a scientist by background,” and said he “came from a consulting firm that does business.”

When O’Keefe summarized some of the remarks that Walker made while being recorded, Walker contradicted his prior comments by arguing that “no one is mutating a COVID virus.”

Asked by O’Keefe whether he worked for Pfizer, Walker said “No, I was a contractor. What the f**k are you talking about?”

Project Veritas has published screenshots allegedly from internal documents which they say prove Walker’s identity and role with Pfizer. As previously mentioned, research by Brian O’Shea also appears to validate that Walker has worked simultaneously worked for Pfizer and Boston Consulting Group.
