Former White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx appeared to hint that she wanted then-President Trump to lose the 2020 presidential election, a new book reportedly alleges.
CNN reports that Andy Slavitt, one of President Biden's top COVID-19 advisers who stepped down this week, wrote in his new book "Preventable" that Birx spoke to him after briefing officials in Minnesota last summer.
"I wanted to get a sense for whether, in the event of a strained transition of government, she would help give Biden and his team the best chance to be effective," Slavitt wrote of Birx and their meeting, CNN reported.
"She looked me in the eye and said, 'I hope the election turns out a certain way,'" Slavitt wrote in the book, according to CNN. "I had the most important information I needed," he added, according to the outlet.
The interaction reportedly took place last August when Slavitt met with Birx, who worked on the coronavirus task force under Trump, after being invited to attend the briefing.
Slavitt noted that Birx was "completely silenced" by the Trump administration, and that she seemed "downright scared."
Birx did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.
The outgoing Biden adviser shared the article detailing his book's claims on Twitter. The book, which details leadership failures during the COVID-19 pandemic, will be released on Tuesday.
Slavitt, a former administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, is slated to appear on "Face the Nation" on Sunday.
Our President was absolutely surrounded by maggots
A scarf would work instead of a rope.
And this is a surprise because?
Pence brought her onboard. Another villainous act.
When did she know the China virus escaped the lab?
He said nothing but nice, gracious things about these a holes.
I’m sick of all this propaganda.
These a&&holes shut down the whole damn world for a year and a half to oust Trump, tank the economies, etc.
NEVER before was this attempted and NEVER again should it be tolerated.
And the rich got TRILLIONS richer in the process.
Remember, unnamed source = fake news.
Never mind. I see there is a name.
Scarf lady = traitor
Given these morons are all cut from the same cloth, and that the CCP has now learned how to bring down their top adversaries with both biological weapons and targeted cyberattacks, I would say it is an excellent time to prepare for the next round.
Indeed, and here is to hoping that if re-elected, Trump has learned valuable lessons.
Scarf lady was a huge lefty .
Her husband was a huge DC operative.
Pence set up Trump .
Has anybody noticed that 2 times the number of people have died in the first 6 months of the Xiden regime than 1 year with President Trump?
And didn’t Fauxci PREDICT A PANDEMIC, early in Trump’s Admin? Trump was making the USA way too strong. He needed to be stopped, by any means necessary.
More rope needed!
