    The President's pick to be the new commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration is quite possibly the most destructive pick he has ever made.

    His pick, Dr.

    Robert Califf, is the former professor of cardiology at Duke University, where he led a research department that was funded by Big Pharma.

    On top of conducting medical research on Big Pharma’s dime, Dr.

    Califf was also a paid consultant for drug companies including Eli Lily, Merck, and Novartis.

    Reports indicate that he donated that money to non-profit organizations since the mid-2000’s, but that’s still a very cozy relationship with the pharmaceutical industry, considering they have funded his entire career.

    America's Lawyer, Mike Papantonio, appears on the Big Picture with Thom Hartmann to discuss this.
