In­ter­nal Trump-era emails re­veal a pletho­ra of celebs, com­pa­nies vy­ing for FDA’s at­ten­tion

The FDA on Thurs­day pub­licly re­leased a trove of about 500 pages of in­ter­nal and heav­i­ly redact­ed emails, show­ing how celebri­ties like Dr. Oz and Lau­ra In­gra­ham vied for the FDA’s at­ten­tion on Covid-re­lat­ed is­sues that ul­ti­mate­ly proved to be a waste of time.

Many of the con­ver­sa­tions, ob­tained via the Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion Act, in­volve ma­jor Trump-era health of­fi­cials who, in ret­ro­spect, made cru­cial and of­ten ill-ad­vised de­ci­sions on in­creas­ing ac­cess to the over-hyped hy­drox­y­chloro­quine.
