Project Veritas released an undercover video purportedly involving Pfizer employee Jordon Trishton Walker – who claimed in the footage that the pharmaceutical company is exploring the possibility of mutating COVID through "directed evolution" to develop future mRNA vaccines.
According to a deleted LinkedIn profile, "Jordon Walker" allegedly started working for Pfizer in June 2021. The profile shows the individual as a "Director, Worldwide R&D Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning" at Pfizer in New York, New York.
Before Pfizer, Walker was employed as a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group. In May 2020, Walker co-wrote a BCG article titled: "The Near-Term Outlook for COVID-19 Therapeutic Treatments."
Walker allegedly graduated from UT Southwestern Medical Center and Yale University.
Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe said his organization had "obtained internal Pfizer docs verifying Jordan Walker as Pfizer Director, Research & Development Strategic Operations."

According to Project Veritas, Jordon Trishton Walker revealed in great depth the possibility of Pfizer mutating the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is responsible for COVID-19, as a way to develop mRNA vaccines against future variants.
"One of the things we're exploring is like, why don't we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create – preemptively develop new vaccines, right? So, we have to do that," Walker allegedly said on video. "If we're gonna do that, though, there's a risk of like, as you could imagine – no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating f***ing viruses."
Walker made the undercover journalist "promise" not to tell anyone.
"The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect ... samples from them," Walker reportedly said.
Walker dismissed the idea that the origin of the COVID-19 outbreak was from nature; instead he believed that the virus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Walker allegedly cautioned, "You have to be very controlled to make sure that this virus [COVID] that you mutate doesn’t create something that just goes everywhere. Which, I suspect, is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. It makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere. It’s bulls**t."
"From what I’ve heard is they [Pfizer scientists] are optimizing it [COVID mutation process], but they’re going slow because everyone is very cautious – obviously they don’t want to accelerate it too much," he continued. "I think they are also just trying to do it as an exploratory thing because you obviously don’t want to advertise that you are figuring out future mutations."
"Part of what they [Pfizer scientists] want to do is, to some extent, to try to figure out, you know, how there are all these new strains and variants that just pop up," Walker allegedly said. "So, it’s like trying to catch them before they pop up and we can develop a vaccine prophylactically, like, for new variants. So, that’s why they like, do it controlled in a lab, where they say this is a new epitope, and so if it comes out later on in the public, we already have a vaccine working."
Walker reportedly said that developing vaccines for future variants before they become pandemics would be a "cash cow" for Pfizer. He boasted, "COVID is going to be a cash cow for us for a while going forward."
The undercover journalist points out that the purported experiments sound like gain-of-function experimentation. Walker is seen on video saying that the experiments are not really gain-of-function experiments, but rather "directed evolution."
The Department of Health and Human Services defines directed evolution as: "The laboratory process by which biological entities with desired traits are created through iterative rounds of genetic diversification and library screening or selection."
Walker also allegedly revealed that there is a "revolving door" of government officials who later become Pfizer employees.
"So, in the pharma industry, all the people who review our drugs – eventually most of them will come work for pharma companies," Walker purportedly said. "And in the military, defense government officials eventually work for defense companies afterwards."
Walker allegedly admitted that the revolving door is "good" for the pharmaceutical industry, but conceded that it is "bad for everybody else in America."
When pressed as to why it was bad, Walker responded, "Because when the regulators reviewing our drugs know that once they stop regulating, they are going to work for the company, they are not going to be as hard towards the company that’s going to give them a job."
TheBlaze asked for a comment from Pfizer and to verify Walker's employment at the biotechnology company. At the time of publication, Pfizer had not responded to the request.
