A Remarkable Turnaround

However, in a remarkable turn around June 15, 2007, Dr. Andrew Zimmerman changed his opinion, and told government lawyers that Vaccines Can Cause Autism” in a subset of children.   Upon hearing Dr Zimmerman’s change in opinion, US Department of Justice attorneys immediately fired Dr Zimmerman as an expert witness. In a fraudulent manner, these same attorneys went on to misrepresent Dr Zimmerman’s opinions in order to to debunk “vaccine cause autism” claims before the court.  Sheryl Atkinson says in her video report:

“Dr. Zimmerman was the government’s top expert witness and had testified that vaccines didn’t cause autism. The debate was declared over….But now Dr. Zimmerman has provided remarkable new information. He claims that during the vaccine hearings all those years ago, he privately told government lawyers that vaccines can, and did cause autism in some children. That turnabout from the government’s own chief medical expert stood to change everything about the vaccine-autism debate.” Quote Sheryl Atkinson Full Measure Vaccine Debate.

Fraud at the DOJ

Robert F Kennedy has asked the Office of Inspector General to investigate the unethical and fraudulent behavior of DOJ Vaccine Court federal attorneys, Vincent Matanoski and Lynn Ricciardella, regarding the Andrew Zimmerman testimony. (Action Alert)

“During the Omnibus Autism Proceeding, Department of Justice attorneys Vincent Matanoski and Lynn Ricciardella acted in concert with their client, the Department of Health and Human Services, to intentionally misrepresent the opinion of their own expert witness, and to willfully conceal from the vaccine court and petitioners critical material evidence showing how vaccines may cause autism. The same DOJ attorneys subsequently intentionally mislead the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. As a result fraud was ultimately perpetrated upon the Supreme Court of the United States.” End Quote Children’s Health Defense RFK jr.(9-10)

Conclusion: The Government’s top expert witness for the vaccine/autism debate had a remarkable turnaround in his opinion more than ten years ago, yet Government lawyers in the DOJ working for the “Federal Vaccine Court” suppressed this information, and continued to misrepresent his old opinion.   If this isn’t an example of “Criminal Fraud in the DOJ”, I dont know what is.(9-10)

The Vaccination Debate
By Full Measure Staff Sunday, January 6th 2019

5)  FULL MEASURE: January 6, 2019 – The Vaccination Debate

Today we investigate one of the biggest medical controversies of our time: vaccines. There’s little dispute about this much– vaccines save many lives, and rarely, they injure or kill. A special federal vaccine court has paid out billions for injuries from brain damage to death. But not for the form of brain injury we call autism. Now—we have remarkable new information: a respected pro-vaccine medical expert used by the federal government to debunk the vaccine-autism link, says vaccines can cause autism after all. He claims he told that to government officials long ago, but they kept it secret. Full Measure is a weekly Sunday news program focusing on investigative, original and accountability reporting. The host is Sharyl Attkisson, five-time Emmy Award winner and recipient of the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative reporting.
