“Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today launched an investigation into whether Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson committed fraud related to the COVID-19 vaccines.

Paxton will investigate whether the companies misrepresented the efficacy and safety of the vaccines and manipulated vaccine trial data, in violation of the state’s Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

He also will investigate whether the pharmaceutical giants engaged in gain-of-function research and misled the public about it, The New York Post reported.”
