HHS official takes leave of absence after targeting CDC scientists

Michael Caputo, the communications official at the HHS, will be taking a medical ’leave of absence’. The agency said Caputo will be focusing on ’his health and the well-being of his family’ for the next 60 days. Caputo came under fire after a rant online where he attacked career scientists at the CDC for being anti-Trump. He warned Trump’s followers to prepare for an armed insurrection.

From what I read, he basically said that some of the scientists employed at the CDC have been resisting the Trump administration doing the Covid-19 crisis, and he called it seditious. I don't know about you, but it doesn't sound like a crazy conspiracy to me. It sounds like yet another group of people in a government institution doing political activism and obstructing the federal government. Half the states are doing the exact same thing all across the front pages of every news site. Is it seditious? I could see the argument, but you should have a hell of a lot of proof before making a public accusation like that. Sounds like a guy at the end of his rope after having to work with people who hate everything he represents for months during a crisis, and snapped.
