BREAKING: Former CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky Was Requested to Testify, and Preserve Her Communications
Representative Brad Wenstrup, D.P.M., Chairman of the Congressional Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic has requested that Dr. Rochelle Walensky, former director of the CDC, appear before the committee on June 14 for a hearing.
Rep. Wenstrup sent Dr. Walensky a letter requesting her appearance before the committee, which is investigating whether the CDC was influenced by “non-governmental groups”, specifically in regard to the CDC’s Feb 2021 “Operational Strategy for K-12 schools Through Phased Prevention”.
Dr. Walensky has failed to respond to a letter that was sent two months ago inquiring whether the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) worked to keep schools closed.
Mrs. Randi Weingarten, President of the AFT, was specifically mentioned in Rep. Wenstrup’s letter as someone who may have unduly influenced the decisions of the CDC regarding school closures. Dr. Walensky was informed in the letter that she is to preserve all communications beginning from January 2021 between her and Mrs. Weingarten, as well as any communications regarding school closures, “Operational Strategy” and the AFT. Rep. Wenstrup included a transcript from testimony by Mrs. Weingarten that she does indeed have Dr. Walensky’s number saved in her contacts.
As reported by Ms. Jennifer Sey, Mrs. Weingarten’s impact on negative policies that affected the children is clear. How much weight did the AFT have on the decisions of Dr. Rochelle Walensky and the CDC?

A quick search for the specific Operational Strategy to which Rep. Wenstrup is referring in his letter shows that the CDC has wiped the page from its website. This is what you see if you go to the link at which it formerly lived:

Luckily for us, we have the trusty Wayback Machine which shows us exactly which “operational strategy” Rep. Wenstrup is referring to in his request:
The CDC, under the guidance of Dr. Rochelle Walensky, has put a generation of children through hell. The damages caused by the militant “operational strategy” will be unraveled for years to come. Although Dr. Walensky has announced her departure from the CDC, as the Select Subcommittee posted on Twitter, “Impending departure from federal service does not protect you from accountability”.
Rep. Wenstrup ended his letter by stating that the Select Subcommittee is “authorized to investigate ‘the societal impact of decisions to close schools, how the decisions were made, and whether there is evidence of widespread learning loss or other negative effects as a result of these decisions’ and ‘executive branch policies, deliberations, decisions, activities, and internal and external communications related to the coronavirus pandemic’ under H. Res. 5.”
