He now says he's been removed from his post, he says, because he spoke up about drugs not backed by science, including Hydroxy Claure Quit. Here's Terry Moran tonight. Tonight, Dr Rick Bright, who led the key federal agency that's developing drugs and a vaccine to fight the Corona virus, is suddenly out of his job. And he's speaking out. Bright says he was abruptly removed from his post this week because, he claims he insisted on rigorous science based vetting of hydroxy claure queen, the anti malaria drug that's been embraced by President Trump. I think it could be something really incredible, like we're having some very good things happening with it, Dr Bright, in a statement he released after being transferred to another agency, declared. I am speaking out because to combat this deadly virus, science, not politics or cronyism has to lead the way. Bright says he defied directives to push the anti malaria drugs, saying it was being promoted by the administration as a panacea but clearly lacks scientific merit. The Veterans Administration tried it on Cove in 19 patients, and researchers say it may lead to, AH, higher death rate. Jonathan Karl pressed the president on those new findings. Panel of experts in the N. I. H is actually now recommending against the use of hydroxy clerical and in combination with Z Pack, which is something you okay? Always willing to take a look. Trump and his allies have hyped the drug repeatedly, to the apparent dismay of Dr Anthony Fauci, who's called the evidence for its use. Anecdotal. And when found he tried to answer a question from a reporter earlier this month, he was pushed aside like president. Correct Question 15. Let's bring in Terry Moran live from Washington tonight. And Terry, this doctor is now calling for an investigation. That's right, David. Dr Bright is asking the inspector general, the Department of Health and Human Services to investigate what the doctor says is quote the politicization of work on medicines in the vaccine for the Corona virus, and the doctor is also hired lawyers. The same lawyers who represented Dr Christine Blah, Zy four, Justice Brett Kavanaugh's accuser. They say that his removal from that post was quote retaliation plain and simple, and they want to see him reinstated. Terry. Thank you. Hi, everyone. George Stephanopoulos Here.
