Miller-Meeks Blasts NIH Advisor’s “Misogynistic Comments”

Washington, DC — Republican Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Davenport says email obtained by a US House subcommittee shows the senior scientific advisor in the National Institutes of Health has made vile comments about women in medicine. Miller-Meeks questioned Dr. David Morens during a congressional hearing.

Miller-Meeks cites an email Morens wrote about Dr. Rochelle Walensky, who was named director of the Centers for Disease Control in 2021.

Miller-Meeks told Morens his comment was disgusting.

Miller-Meeks says Morens should be ashamed and embarrassed.

The House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Pandemic issued a subpoena to get emails from Morens. Republicans on the panel have accused Morens of deleting emails that could be related to the origins of COVID-19. Morens’ attorney says his client is a career public servant whose work is focused on finding solutions to pressing public health issues.
