"Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Wednesday he was “deeply saddened” by remarks by Trump appointee Michael Caputo, who reportedly said CDC scientists were engaged in “sedition” against President Donald Trump.

The Department of Health and Human Services announced later Wednesday that “Caputo has decided to take a leave of absence to focus on his health and the well-being of his family.”

Caputo, a former Trump campaign official, made the “sedition” comment in a Facebook Live event broadcast on Sunday, The New York Times first reported. At a Senate Committee on Appropriations hearing, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., asked Redfield to respond to the comments.

Caputo was installed at HHS earlier this year as the top spokesman in an action seen as a move by the Trump administration to better align health messaging with that of the White House.

“The spokesperson for HHS claimed that there is a resistance unit at CDC and voiced concerns about ulterior deep state motives and President Trump has bolstered skepticism in the agency’s death toll,” Murray told Redfield. “Do you agree with me that there is no truth to all those claims?”
