(CNN) The Wisconsin hospital pharmacist who in December allegedly removed 57 vials of Covid-19 vaccine from cold storage because he believed the vaccine could harm people has signed a plea agreement "acknowledging that he was guilty" of trying to make the vaccine ineffective, the Department of Justice said. Brandenburg removed a storage container with 57 vials, containing more than 500 doses of the Moderna vaccine, at the Aurora Medical Center in Grafton on December 24 and 25, according to police. The vaccine must be kept cold to remain effective. "Tampering with vaccine doses in the midst of a global health crisis calls for a strong response, as reflected by the serious charges the United States has brought today," said Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian Boynton of the Department of Justice's Civil Division. CNN has reached out to an attorney for Brandenburg for comment.

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume warned Tuesday that those on the left calling for increased regulation of speech don't understand the concept of the First Amendment or the marketplace of ideas. BRIT HUME: What's most distressing to me ... is the extent to which journalists themselves are now participating ... it astounds me, frankly. It is alarming and it suggests to me that people who are calling for this stuff don’t really understand the basis of our concept of free speech, which is that people are better informed by hearing a wide range of voices and tolerating them, and that the answer to objectionable speech is not censorship. That’s the concept, open forums, free speech, if you find speech objectionable, respond to it with something better. What we are hearing and seeing now is journalists themselves trying to shut down other news organizations and channels, and I find it astonishing and alarming.

However, reports that a state agency under Su’s jurisdiction mistakenly paid out billions in false unemployment claims could complicate her candidacy.
