An online company under investigation by a House panel for profiting off COVID-19 misinformation is not cooperating with the probe, according to the panel's top Democrat.
According to a letter sent by Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), chairman of the House Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, SpeakWithAnMD.com has failed to provide any documents or information requested and has not responded to any communication from the committee in over a week.
"Despite repeated assurances of compliance, SpeakWithAnMD has failed to produce any documents responsive to the Select Subcommittee’s requests. The Select Subcommittee expects SpeakWithAnMD to fully and promptly respond to all of its document and information requests," Clyburn said in a statement. "Should the company fail to do so, the Select Subcommittee will be forced to consider alternative measures to obtain compliance."
The subcommittee opened an investigation into SpeakWithAnMD.com in October, alleging the company was a "leading purveyor of questionable treatments nationwide," and collected millions of dollars in fees from prescribing disproven and potentially hazardous coronavirus treatments, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.
Clyburn said many of the consultations were arranged through referrals from America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLD), a group that has promoted misinformation about the virus and is also under congressional investigation.
