Dick Morris to Newsmax TV: Pfizer Shady, 'a Biden Company'

(Newsmax TV's "The Chris Salcedo Show")

Lost in a contested presidential election are eyebrow-raising actions by Pfizer – from suspiciously timed vaccine news to a perfectly timed stock sale by its never-Trump CEO and an alleged Joe Biden agenda – according to presidential political strategist Dick Morris on Newsmax TV.

"They're a Biden company," Morris told Wednesday's "The Chris Salcedo Show," pointing to past executive connections to Biden and company officials reportedly donating almost 10 times as much to Democrat campaigns as it did to President Donald Trump.

Perhaps most egregiously, Morris noted, Pfizer did not announce the greater than 90% efficacy of its two-dose vaccine until the first business day after Biden preemptively declared victory in the contested presidential election. Newsmax has not called the race amid myriad legal challenges and recounts in key battleground states.

"I have no evidence they deliberately delayed it, but it sure as hell looks like it," Morris told host Chris Salcedo, as Trump has publicly rebuked Pfizer's post-election timing. "You know, these things don't come along in a moment."

And, almost too perfectly convenient, anti-Trump CEO Albert Bourla, a Greek businessman, sold 60% of his shares on the day of the vaccine announcement, as per a previously designated plan. Bourla cashed out with $5.6 million, selling Pfizer (PFE) at $41.94, according to an SEC filing.

Pfizer's yearly high was just a few cents more at $41.99. Bourla sold with alarmingly near-perfect timing.

Also, amid news Moderna's vaccine is potentially even more effective, is just one dose, and easier to store, the PFE price has since fallen to $36.32 at close Wednesday.

Bourla's stock sale was alerted, by law, in August. It should be noted that was just one month after Trump's Operation Warp Speed signed a $1.95 billion July deal with Pfizer to distribute 100 million doses once it became available.

"President Trump did a magnificent job and took a hell of a risk," Morris said of the July deal, effectively "to prepay for a vaccine that didn't exist and might never exist."

Pfizer had attempted to deny it was part of Trump's Operation Warp Speed, but it later admitted to being a part of it with regard to distribution.

Still, the timing of the stock sale, Nov. 3 election, Biden's preemptive declaration of victory, and the alleged delayed announcement of Pfizer's vaccine efficacy are all concerning, Morris said.

Bourla had told NBC in September, he expected to know the vaccine efficacy "by the end of October."

Then, in an open-letter statement Oct. 16 – amid the presidential election – Bourla expressed some doubt, saying "we may know whether or not our vaccine is effective by the end of October."

"And, keep in mind, that Pfizer has very close connections to Biden," Morris said. "The former senior vice president for worldwide public affairs for Pfizer, a guy named Greg Simon, left Pfizer to become the head of the Biden Cancer Initiative, the Biden foundation that raked in millions and spent or gave out nothing in grants."

The New York Post reported that latter story.

And, through it all, Morris lamented, Pfizer remains more loyal to Biden and the rest of the world amid the global coronavirus pandemic, shorting the Trump administration on its $1.95 billion deal for 100 million doses of the two-dose vaccine that could have inoculated 50 million Americans.

"Now, Pfizer is saying, 'oh, we're sorry, we're not going to deliver 100 million doses to you by the end of the year, we can only deliver 25 million, and we're going to send half of those to other countries, even though you paid for them,'" Morris told Salcedo.

"With two doses per person, that works out to about 6.2 million people that can be inoculated, 2% of our country. So, it is time to put America first."
