A new undercover video from Project Veritas allegedly captures a Pfizer official saying the company has considered mutating the virus in order to create effective vaccines in advance, declaring that COVID will be a “cash cow” for years, and claiming federal regulators go easy on Pfizer in hopes of getting jobs later.

The 10-minute video, which was posted late Wednesday and had garnered more than 10 million views on Twitter alone by Thursday morning, shows a man identified as Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer’s director of research and development, strategic operations – mRNA scientific planner, discussing the company in what appears to be a bar or restaurant. The Project Veritas employee, who does not appear on camera, prods him on various subjects.

“One of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right?” the man identified as Walker says. “So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating f***ing viruses.”

When the Project Veritas interviewer asks if such work would be illegal gain-of-function research, the man identified as Walker calls it “directed evolution” of the virus, which he insists is not the same thing.

“Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone,” Walker says on the video. “The way it [the experiment] 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.”

Still, the man identified as Walker acknowledges that such research could be dangerous, saying an accident could trigger a repeat of what he suspects happened in the Wuhan lab where many believe COVID first escaped.


“You have to be very controlled to make sure that this virus [COVID] that you mutate doesn’t create something that just goes everywhere,” the man says. “Which, I suspect, is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. It makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere. It’s bulls***.”

“You’re not supposed to do gain-of-function research with viruses. Regularly not,” he continued. “We can do these selected structure mutations to make them more potent. There is research ongoing about that. I don’t know how that is going to work. There better not be any more outbreaks because, Jesus Christ.”

The man identified as Walker describes the relationship between Pfizer and government regulators as a “revolving door” which is “pretty good for the industry,” but bad for America.

“Because if the regulators, who review our drugs, you know that once they stop being a regulator, they want to go work for the company, they are not going to be as harsh on the company where they’re getting their job,” he says.

At another point in the video, he acknowledges that COVID has made Pfizer billions, and will likely continue to do so no matter how the virus evolves.

“Who knows? I mean, either way, it’s going to be a cash cow,” he says. “COVID will probably be a cash cow for us for a while going forward. Like, obviously …”
