Former White House coronavirus coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx claimed on Sunday that former President Donald Trump was being fed “parallel data streams” from another source on the pandemic and was “presenting graphs” that she never made.

During an interview on CBS News’ Face the Nation, Dr. Birx appeared to be doing a bit of reputation rehab by distancing herself completely from the Trump administration. Besides telling anchor Margaret Brennan that she “always” considered quitting the coronavirus task force, she also said there were “definitely” people within the White House who thought the virus was a hoax.

At one point in the conversation, Dr. Birx—who announced she was retiring during the transition between administrations—said she had been “censored” by the White House while denying that she ever willfully held back any information about the coronavirus crisis.
