Gohmert’s COVID-19 and Medical Freedom Web Series to Launch Exclusively on Hannity.com

Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) will launch a new web series titled, COVID-19 and Medical Freedom: A Congressional Inquiry. The series will be highlighted exclusively on Hannity.com and feature interviews with medical professionals and experts.

In the first episode, Rep. Gohmert teams up with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to interview Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch, family physician Dr. George Fareed, and infectious disease Dr. Stephen Smith.

Dr. Risch is the author of more than 325 original research publications in medical literature. His research and analysis on hydroxychloroquine and its effectiveness in COVID-19 has been cited worldwide. Dr. Fareed and his colleagues have successfully treated over 2,000 coronavirus patients, 455 of them with a hydroxychloroquine cocktail in the hard-hit Imperial Valley of California. Dr. Smith has had great success in treating over 300 hospitalized coronavirus patients with a hydroxychloroquine cocktail in New Jersey.

Rep. Gohmert released the following statement about the series:

“The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the medical industrial complex’s grip on society and reiterated the importance of medical freedom here in this country. When making important health care decisions, one often seeks multiple opinions from medical professionals before choosing a path for treatment. The same should be expected in America in response to the coronavirus. Instead, experts who have vital research and clinical experience are being demonized by career bureaucrats who haven’t treated patients in decades, let alone anyone suffering from COVID-19. These respected experts are being vilified by the Trump-hating media and silenced through censorship by social media monopolies.  Adding insult to injury, government bureaucrats are standing in between these doctors and their patients with threats of revoking their licenses to practice medicine. This is why I have decided to speak on the record with prominent physicians and researchers to explore the state of medical freedom in our country.

The American people deserve to hear directly from those in the medical community who are collaborating with one another nationwide while treating COVID-19 patients—in both hospitalized and outpatient settings. I’d like to thank Sen. Rand Paul for his participation in this invaluable series. I’d also like to thank Sean Hannity for providing these doctors with a platform to share their information. They deserve to be heard.”

Episode one launched today, Wednesday September 23 on Hannity.com.
