Sen. Johnson Wants to Interview Maj. Joseph Murphy About Documents Released by Project Veritas

Even though Dr. Anthony Fauci was able to sidestep inquiries from Sen. Roger Marshall about the bombshell DARPA report uncovered by Project Veritas this week during his testimony before the Senate, multiple members of Congress still have questions, and they’ve started going for the answers.


Six members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and CDC Director Walensky with a list of questions they’d like answers to. Madison Cawthorn, Bill Posey, Diana Harshbarger, Lisa McClain, Randy Weber, and Matt Gaetz signed the letter, and didn’t specify from whom the answers to these questions should come, just that they demand answers.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is also demanding answers. He sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin with a list of questions and a couple of requests, but his first paragraph adds a little information to what came out Monday night. Many have wondered what happened once Maj. Joseph Murphy’s report was received by the DoD’s Office of the Inspector General. Johnson writes:

According to the document, Major Murphy sent the disclosure to the Department of Defense (DoD) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for investigation. It is my understanding that the disclosure was subsequently referred by the DoD OIG to the DoD’s Research and Engineering office for further investigation.

That is interesting information.

Johnson paraphrases what was contained in Murphy’s report (which he labels a disclosure) then asks for answers to the following questions no later than January 25, 2022:

  1. Did the office of Research and Engineering receive a copy of the enclosed disclosure
    from the DoD OIG? If so, please provide the date it received the complaint?
  2. Has the office of Research and Engineering or another DoD component initiated an
    investigation of the allegations in the disclosure? If so, explain what investigative steps
    have been taken thus far. If not, please explain why not.
  3. Has the office of Research and Engineering or another DoD component interviewed or
    spoken with the U.S. Marine Corps Major who drafted the disclosure? If so, when? If
    not, please explain why not.
  4. Does DoD intend to create a written investigate report or any other document based on its
    investigation of allegations contained in the disclosure? If so, please provide a copy of
    those documents. If not, please explain why not.

Finally, Johnson asks to be briefed on the findings of any investigation that has been conducted, and, most importantly, to “speak with Maj. Murphy regarding his disclosure as soon as possible.” Hopefully, with Sen. Johnson and multiple members of the House of Representatives formally looking into this matter, Murphy will be protected from any retaliation – and more importantly, hopefully the American people will finally start getting the truth from our government.
