On Wednesday, President Donald Trump lashed out at Dr. Rick Bright, the public health official who filed a whistleblower complaint against the administration after being reassigned from a vaccine program.


"I never met Dr. Bright. I don't know who he is," Trump told reporters. "I didn't hear good things about him. To me, he seems like a disgruntled employee that's trying to help the Democrats."

Bright's reassignment has fueled controversy over the administration's pandemic policy. He is scheduled to testify to the House by videoconference next week.
