As COVID-19 and it's masking makes a resurgence in media, Governor Ron DeSantis's spokesman is reminding Americans that Florida is the only State to impanel a criminal grand jury to investigate Covid vaccine manufacturers.
"As the narrative regime resumes the COVID talking points, Ron DeSantis continues to fight for truth and accountability," posted DeSantis campaign spokesman Bryan Griffin. "He is the only leader in the country to impanel a grand jury to investigate crimes and wrongs related to the COVID-19 vaccines."
This comes after former White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has resurfaced to promote masking and First Lady Jill Biden is reported to have tested positive for COVID-19.

In December, DeSantis petitioned the Florida Supreme Court to impanel a Statewide Grand Jury to investigate whether Covid-19 vaccine manufacturers like Moderna and Pfizer lied to Americans about the effectiveness and safety concerns related to their products.
According to the petition, DeSantis says he has "determined that it is in the public interest to impanel a statewide grand jury and that the crimes and wrongs to be investigated ...are of a multi-circuit nature."
The petition points to various statements made by government agencies about the safety and effectiveness of Covid-19 vaccines.
"Various state and federal health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), held the belief that the vaccines prevented transmission, and in turn issued guidance recommending the vaccines as effective at 'limiting the spread of the virus that causes it," the petition states. "The CDC's website stated the vaccines were 'safe and effective as determined by data from the manufacturers,' but that statement was later removed," according to the petition.
The petition cites claims made by public health officials like White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci.
"Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, unequivocally asserted that the vaccines prevented transmission," according to the petition. "And the White House issued a press briefing just last year, only days before Christmas, threatening 'the unvaccinated' with 'a winter of severe illness and death."
The petition suggests Fauci and others may have been dispensing advice with personal financial gain in mind.
"It is impossible to imagine that so many influential individuals came to this view on their own. Rather, it is likely that individuals and companies with an incentive to do so created these perceptions for financial gain," the petition states.
The petition cites multiple claims about the efficacy and safety of Covid vaccines made by the CEOs of Pfizer and Moderna.
"For example, on November 30, 2020, the Chief Executive Officer of Moderna told the public that a study 'confirms the ability of our vaccine to prevent COVID-19 disease with 94.1% efficacy.' Pfizer similarly stated that its vaccine was 'highly effective with 91.3% vaccine efficacy observed against COVID-19 ... through up to six months after the second dose," the petition states. "Nearly a year later, World Health Organization officials admitted that the vaccines did 'not fully prevent transmission.'"
The petition cites occasions where Pfizer and Moderna have denied their COVID-19 vaccines cause serious side effects such as myocarditis and pericarditis.
"In April 2021, increased cases of myocarditis and pericarditis were reported in individuals in the United States after receiving the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccinations," the petition states. "In June 2021, Moderna shared a press release via Twitter (which was later removed) and stated, 'we have not established a causal association with [myocarditis and/or pericarditis and] our vaccine.' Around the same time, a spokeswoman for Pfizer said that 'a causal link to the vaccine has not been established' and that "with a vast number of people vaccinated to date, the benefit risk profile of our vaccine remains positive.' But just four months later, both companies acknowledged the occurrence of myocarditis on their websites, representing that it is an 'extremely' or 'very' rare side effect."
‼️WATCH! Governor Ron DeSantis comments on the criminal grand jury he empaneled to look into potential crimes committed by Covid-19 Vaccine manufacturers
“Florida is the only state in the country doing anything about this.”

The scope of the grand jury includes "Individuals, persons, and entities, including, but not limited to, pharmaceutical manufacturers (and their executive officers) and other medical associations or organizations involved in the design, development, clinical testing or investigation, manufacture, marketing, representation, advertising, promotion, labeling, distribution, formulation, packing, sale, purchase, donation, dispensing, prescribing, administration, or use of vaccines purported to prevent COVID-19 infection, symptoms, and transmission"
The grand jury may also consider "other criminal activity or wrongdoing that the statewide grand jury uncovers during the course of the investigation if it determines that pursuing the criminal activity or wrongdoing is in the best interests of the investigation."
The petition cites several Florida statutes including, "Any crime involving, or resulting in, fraud or deceit upon any person [e.g., Chapter 817 (false pretenses and frauds, generally)]; Chapter 499 (crimes under Part I of the Florida Drug and Cosmetic Act); Chapter 895 (violations of the provisions of the Florida Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO), including offenses listed under section 895.02); and Any attempt, solicitation, or conspiracy to commit any violation of the crimes specifically enumerated above."
“Florida is the only state in the country that is doing anything about this," said DeSantis at a June press conference. "We petitioned the Florida Supreme Court to impanel a statewide grand jury…that grand jury was seated in February and it is investigating…We have seen an increase [of myocarditis] in Florida, particularly with men under the age of 40."
The grand jury report is expected to be completed in December, but the grand jury could request six more months if necessary.
"An investigation is warranted to determine whether the pharmaceutical industry has engaged 1n fraudulent practices. The people of Florida deserve to know the truth," concludes the petition.
