Project Veritas released video footage Thursday night allegedly showing a Pfizer official becoming angered after being confronted by journalist James O’Keefe over recent remarks that he was caught making during an undercover sting video.
The man, identified as Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer’s director of research and development, strategic operations – mRNA scientific planner, was confronted by O’Keefe at a restaurant.
Project Veritas said that Walker “physically assault[ed]” O’Keefe and destroyed the iPad that O’Keefe brought with him that he used to replay Walker’s remarks.
“You work for Pfizer,” O’Keefe said to Walker. “My question for you is, why does Pfizer wanna hide from the public the fact that they’re mutating the COVID viruses?”
“Is this real life?” a shocked Walker replied. “This is absurd.”
“You’re on video,” O’Keefe responded as he replayed Walker’s previous comments.
“You f*cked up,” Walker said, claiming that he lied to the undercover Project Veritas operative because he was “trying to impress a person on a date.”
“I’m not even a scientist,” he claimed.

During the first video that Project Veritas released of Walker this week, Walker said, “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?”
“So, we have to do that,” he said. “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.”
UPDATE: PFIZER DENIES CONDUCTING COVID GAIN-OF-FUNCTION RESEARCH IN DELAYED RESPONSE TO VERITAS VIDEO
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” that 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 …”
