Hillary Clinton has never let her feelings on vaccine remain mysterious. The former Secretary of State and two-time failed Presidential consideration once famously tweeted, “the science is clear, vaccines work.”

President Donald Trump’s vaccine skeptic statements have been yet another reason that the ousted former Democratic candidate for President likely has clear remaining bitter feelings towards him. But would Clinton’s clear pro-vaccine bias have influenced her to give a fugitive a break?
Some believe that’s exactly what happened.
Poul Thorsen is the scientist who disputed the thimerosal-autism connection. His paper was published in NEJM. He was also a fugitive in 2011 when Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State for the Obama administration. Here were his findings:
There was no association between the age at the time of vaccination, the time since vaccination, or the date of vaccination and the development of autistic disorder.
Thorsen was on the run after accusations that he embezzled grant money from the CDC arose.
According to the Feds:
From approximately February 2004 until February 2010, Poul Thorsen executed a scheme to steal grant money awarded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Thorsen allegedly diverted over $1 million of the CDC grant money to his own personal bank account.
According to bank account records, Thorsen purchased a home in Atlanta, a Harley Davidson motorcycle, an Audi automobile, and a Honda SUV with funds that he received from the CDC grants.
That’s $11 million that Thorsen potentially pocketed, pending the allegations are truthful.
So then did Clinton give Thorsen a break? Or did Danish officials decidedly not extradite him to the United States? Check out the latest episode of Highwire with Del Bigtree who speaks directly to this matter.
