WASHINGTON, D.C. — Media darling Dr. Peter Hotez, who’s become a household name for his staunch and unrelenting promotion of mRNA vaccines, is allegedly an agent of the Chinese communist regime. The claim is made by Dr. Lawrence Sellin, a retired U.S. Army colonel and expert in biowarfare.
Peter Hotez is a physician who holds a number of impressive titles. He is the dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas and professor of Pediatrics and Molecular Virology & Microbiology at the same institution. He holds an additional seven positions at various prestigious institutions, including the Hagler Institute for Advanced Study & Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs.
Hotez has made a name for himself by appearing on mainstream media where he relentlessly attacks anyone with a skeptical view of the official COVID-19 and related vaccine narrative. Recently, he attacked podcaster Joe Rogan and streaming giant Spotify for allowing “misinformation” about the COVID injections.
But according to Dr. Sellin, Hotez is the central figure in a network of research projects with direct ties to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.
“Research grant number R01AI098775 ‘RBD recombinant protein-based SARS vaccine for biodefense’ amounting to over $1 million per year was awarded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to Professor Peter Hotez of Baylor College of Medicine as the Project Leader,” Sellin wrote already back in 2021.
Sellin’s research revealed that a number of PLA scientists have been receiving U.S. grant money flowing through Fauci and Hotez to a key Chinese operative by the name of Shibo Jiang.
While working and residing in the U.S. for over two decades, Jiang received more than $17 million in U.S. research grants, the vast majority coming from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s NIAID, Sellin’s research showed.
“During that entire period, Shibo Jiang actively collaborated with People’s Liberation Army laboratories, while simultaneously inviting into his U.S. laboratory and training scientists linked to the Chinese military,” Sellin writes.
Journalist Dan Cohen has also investigated Hotez’s background and found a decades-long link between the doctor and Big Pharma, the Clinton Global Initiative, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Obama administration. Cohen describes in detail how Hotez has been leading projects for the testing dangerous experimental drugs on poor populations in developing countries.
