“A few hours later, the issue was front and center at a meeting of the White House coronavirus task force when FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn briefed members about the vaccine data,” the paper continued. “Hahn said the timing was the sole result of independent decisions made by Pfizer on collecting and reviewing the information, according to three senior administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal affairs.”

It turns out that is true — but as Nate Silver pointed it, Trump was right in that Pfizer slow-walked its approval on purpose, very likely to deny Trump any credit for the rapid development of a vaccine for a virus he was wrongly being blamed for.

In short, Pfizer chose politics over lives, which is typical of big pharma in America.
