German MEP Christine Anderson is making waves again after getting her mic cut for calling EU President Ursula von der Leyen “corrupt” and demanding that she disclose documents on her deal with Pfizer.

“In the best von der Leyen style—in the old days, it was called nepotism—von der Leyen negotiated a contract worth €35 billion with the CEO of Pfizer by SMS text message,” Anderson began.

The contract in question came into the public consciousness in 2023 when the New York Times sued von der Leyen over the institution’s failure to disclose critical documents between her and Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, with NYT arguing that they have a legal obligation to do so and that their freedom of information requests are being blocked.

Anderson continued, “If [Ursula von der Leyen] refuses to disclose all documents and to accept an invitation to the COVID committee, persistently ignores the requests of the EU-Ombudswoman, and even smiles away the rebuke of the European Court of Auditors with an arrogant shrug of the shoulders, then we in Parliament must show von der Leyen the red card, at the latest now that the public prosecutor’s office is investigating her for corruption.”

“It is bad enough that the President of the Commission is corrupt, but a Parliament that covers up this corruption is just as corrupt and is robbing—”

At this point, Anderson’s mic was cut, and she was told, “no more”.

This isn’t the first time Anderson has made waves, having proven time and time again to be willing to fight for those who were viciously discriminated against by their governments during the COVID lockdowns.

Famously, much like with Ursula von der Leyen, Anderson denounced PM Justin Trudeau in 2022 as a tyrant “who tramples on fundamental rights by persecuting and criminalizing his own citizens as terrorists” before the European Parliament.

“Mr. Trudeau, you are a disgrace for any democracy! Please spare us your presence,” Anderson said.
