A top-level Pfizer executive revealed to an undercover Project Veritas (PV) journalist that the pharmaceutical giant is considering the possibility of mutating the COVID virus itself via “directed evolution” in order to keep profiting off a continued stream of vaccines.
Following the release of the first video, which was published Wednesday, Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations – mRNA Scientific Planner, is seen in a second video assaulting PV founder James O’Keefe and his staff in a restaurant, and destroying the iPad showing the undercover video recordings.
BREAKING: @Pfizer Exploring "Mutating" COVID-19 Virus For New Vaccines

“One of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create – preemptively develop new vaccines, right?” Walker is heard telling the PV undercover journalist in the first video. “So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that, though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine – no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating f**king viruses.”
“Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone,” Walker is heard giddily telling the PV journalist in the first video. “The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them.”
“You have to be very controlled to make sure that this virus [COVID] that you mutate doesn’t create something that just goes everywhere,” Walker is also heard explaining. “Which, I suspect, is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. It makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere. It’s bullsh*t.”
In the following exchange between the PV journalist and Walker, the journalist asks if the “directed evolution” process Walker claims is being considered at Pfizer is like “Gain-of-Function” research:
PV Journalist: So, I mean, when is Pfizer going to implement the mutation of all these viruses?
Walker: I don’t know, it depends on how the experiments work out because this is just like, something we’re trying, right?
PV Journalist: It sounds like Gain-of-Function to me.
Walker: I don’t know, it’s a little bit different. I think it’s different. It’s like, this, it’s definitely not Gain-of-Function.
PV Journalist: It sounds like it is, I mean, it’s okay [laughs]
Walker: No, no, no, but directed evolution is very different [laughs]
PV Journalist: Direct evolution?
Walker: Directed evolution.
PV Journalist: Directed evolution, okay. Well, so, I mean, is that what it is?
Walker: Maybe, I don’t know [laughs] … Well, you’re not supposed to do Gain-of-Function research with the viruses. They’d rather we not, but we do these selected structure mutations to try to see if we can make them more potent. So, there is research ongoing about that. I don’t know how that’s going to work. There better not be any more outbreaks cause, like, Jesus Christ.
When the undercover journalist asks Walker for more information about the “virus mutation process,” the Pfizer executive responds experimentation is continuing:
… but it seems like, from what I’ve heard, they’re kind of optimizing it, but they’re going slow cause everyone’s very cautious, like, you know, obviously they don’t want to accelerate it too much, but I think they’re also just trying to do it as an exploratory thing, because you obviously don’t want to advertise that you are figuring out future mutations.
In a subsequent meeting, the PV journalist asked Walker about the “goal” for Pfizer in performing the COVID mutations.
Walker responds Pfizer’s reasoning is that, “You know how there’s all these new strains and variants that just pop up? Why don’t we try to like, catch them before they pop up in nature and we can develop a vaccine prophylactically, before, like, new variants?”
“Oh my God, that’s perfect,” the PV journalist is heard saying. “Isn’t that the best business model though? Just control nature before nature even happens itself, right?”
“Yeah, if it works,” Walker is heard agreeing, and then qualifies, “Because some of the times there are mutations that pop up that we are not prepared for like the delta and omicron and things like that, so who knows?”
“I mean, either way, it’s going to be a cash cow,” Walker states. “COVID will probably be a cash cow for us awhile going forward. Like, obviously [laughs].
The Blaze reported Thursday, according to Walker’s deleted LinkedIn profile, he allegedly started working for Pfizer in June 2021.
“The profile shows the individual as a “Director, Worldwide R&D Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning” at Pfizer in New York, New York,” the report noted.
Prior to working for Pfizer, Walker was employed as a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). He was co-author of a BCG article in May 2020 titled: “The Near-Term Outlook for COVID-19 Therapeutic Treatments.”
O’Keefe tweeted Wednesday evening PV had “obtained internal Pfizer docs verifying Jordan Walker as Pfizer Director, Research & Development Strategic Operations.”

According to the information presented by O’Keefe, Walker’s supervisor reports directly to Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.
The War Room’s Steve Bannon provided a compilation video showing how Pfizer funds many of the major network news shows. O’Keefe told Bannon the undercover video featuring Walker is the “most-watched video in PV’s history,” currently showing 18 million views on Twitter.
Regarding verification of Walker’s employment at Pfizer, O’Keefe said “he does mRNA scientific planning, he’s one of Pfizer’s directors of research and development.”
“We have an internal staff chart confirming he is who he says he is – he does indeed work for Pfizer,” he added.
In the second video, O’Keefe confronts Walker with his comments about Pfizer’s plan to explore the possibility of mutating the COVID virus itself in order to keep profiting off a continued stream of vaccines.
Walker is seen panicking, claiming he was trying to “impress a person on a date by lying.”
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson noted as well the media blackout on the PV story, and the significance of Walker’s remarks.
The Star News Network reached out for comment to Pfizer and is awaiting a response.
