“On Sept. 22, in a letter from CDC Director Thomas Freiden, [Frieden] CDC denied Smith’s request. Smith explained that ‘this denial was a disappointment but not a surprise, since the inescapable implication of Dr. Thompson’s testimony is that the agency fraudulently altered the science to undermine autism cases worth potentially $1 trillion in compensation ordered by Congress’.” 
There must be something either in the water or the air in Washington, DC—the federal district and government agencies, in particular, or Atlanta, Georgia—that enables federal employees and bureaucrats to break the law and not be held accountable! Isn’t that interesting? One such exceptional example is the circus of events that surrounds the Democrat’s presidential candidate’s actions as Secretary of State deleting over 30,000 emails from her personal email server, plus not being able to remember ‘things’ under testimony to the FBI’s investigation!
FBI Director James Comey seems to have drunk some of the ‘cool aid’, water or breathed too deeply because of his unbelievable exoneration of Hillary Clinton’s obvious illegal and criminal actions, which other government employees had them land in prison, John Kiriakou being one CIA employee about whom I wrote .
However, nothing seems to match the chutzpah, or impudence, of government employees than what goes on within the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention AND the U.S. Food and Drug Administration!
From my over forty years of interacting with them at times, researching and tracking issues dominated by both agencies, I have found the ‘corporate culture’ in both to be nothing short of deceitful, hyperbole passed off as science, and apparently fraudulent, in my opinion. Harsh words; I don’t think so, especially when you assess some of the public things we know about.
Attorney Emord goes on to say that an attorney in the FDA Chief Counsel’s office regarding a court order to the FDA made this really shocking statement, “Jonathan, the FDA will never abide by the Pearson decision.” 
Despite Jonathan’s noting it was a final and binding decision—an order of the court—the FDA attorney said, “That may be so, but I am telling you the FDA will never abide by that court decision, never, ever.” 
Emord goes on to tell us, “His words pierced to the very core of my being. Here was an agency’s legal officer telling me that the agency was, intentionally, lawless.” 
There are many more examples that I know about, but there’s one currently astonishing legal circles, which I’d like to bring to everyone’s attention. It revolves around the CDC’s position on vaccines and the CDC’s “whistleblower-in-residence,” William Thompson, PhD, and his revelations about how the CDC destroyed scientific data linking vaccines with autism, particularly in young black boys under three years of age, as documented in the movie VAXXED .
Dr Thompson has been subpoenaed in a case that has found its way into the court system and Thompson is being subpoenaed to testify in the medical malpractice case of 16-year-old Yates Hazlehurst who, according to the lawsuit, is autistic as a result of vaccine injuries.
Under the VICA and the 2009 Supreme Court decision Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, almost all vaccine injured children are barred from filing lawsuits in state or federal courts. Instead, their only legal remedy is to seek compensation under VICA in the so called “vaccine court,” the popular term which refers to the Office of Special Masters of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, which administers a no-fault system for litigating vaccine injury claims. There is no judge, no jury and the most basic rules of law do not apply. 
I wish to note a correction that the Supreme Court decision was February 22, 2011, not 2009. As a matter of fact, I attended the Press Release media event held days later on the apron of the steps to the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, DC, in protest of that decision. It was an exceptional event that the mainstream media chose to ignore! I also wrote an article about that decision.
At that PR media event, I met Yates Hazlehurst’s father, an attorney, who impressed me with his determination to get justice for his son and all children damaged by vaccines, exposing how the Vaccine Court works. Fast forward to the lawsuit filed on behalf of Yates and the subpoena issued to the CDC’s epidemiologist, William Thompson, PhD.
The absolutely stunning part of the Hazlehurst case is that the CDC has kept with its ‘corporate culture’ in ignoring the law! This is where we realize just how corrupt the CDC is:
Attorneys Bryan Smith and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., of Morgan & Morgan, have been seeking to have Dr. Thompson testify in a medical malpractice case to explain how the CDC committed scientific fraud in a series of studies, which found no link between vaccines and autism.
In denying the request, Dr. Frieden said, “Dr. William Thompson’s deposition testimony would not substantially promote the objectives of CDC or HHS [Health and Human Services].” 
Dr. Frieden  is William Thompson’s BOSS! What does that tell you?
How can the CDC refuse to answer a subpoena? How can the CDC continue to break the law in tandem with its sub-agency, the FDA? When will the U.S. Congress, who has oversight over the CDC and FDA, exercise its power and get out of the lucrative back money pockets of vaccine makers and Big Pharma?
Not satisfied that the CDC can get away with breaking the law time-after-time, I emailed one of the attorneys I network with on vaccines and here’s that lawyer’s legal reply, which I think everyone in this country ought to be demanding be pursued further and to the fullest extent of the law
My first thought when I [the attorney writing the email] read that Frieden “refused to allow” Dr. Thompson to testify, because it “wouldn’t help the CDC”, (how ridiculous!) was “how can Frieden interfere with a lawfully issued subpoena for Dr. Thompson’s testimony?” Subpoenas are not “optional”. Subpoenas are mandatory, which can only be overruled by the presiding judge. Was a motion to quash the subpoena ever filed? Probably not. Even Bill Clinton lost his motion to quash his deposition subpoena during the Lewinsky scandal. Bosses don’t have any authority to just “veto” a lawfully issued subpoena for an employee, for any reason. Witness testimony seeks the TRUTH, no matter who or what (like the CDC) is on the wrong side of the truth. As to legal terms, it depends precisely on the state jurisdiction, federal jurisdiction, etc., but I’d start with witness tampering, and/or obstruction of justice. Also, possibly malfeasance and/or illegal acts in office by Frieden. [….] But, Dr. Thompson has a legal obligation to respond to a lawfully issued subpoena, and NO ONE has the right to interfere with his court or deposition appearance without a court order from a court of competent jurisdiction.
Here’s the million-dollar-question: Since when does something that “wouldn’t help the CDC” be the priority culture at the CDC, rather than presenting valid scientific research about vaccines in order to prevent numerous health damages they cause, especially Autism Spectrum Disorder, which the CDC has been hiding from the public and the medical profession for more than a few decades? See the Simpsonwood Meeting agenda in June of 2000!
