Washington (CNN)The top spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services issued an extraordinary broadside on Sunday against career government scientists, accusing them of "sedition" in their response to coronavirus and claiming without evidence that a critical federal health agency has a "resistance unit" against President Donald Trump, according to The New York Times.

Michael Caputo, a fierce defender of Trump who was appointed to the agency earlier this year by the President, made the accusations during a live video hosted on his personal Facebook page, according to the Times, which said the video "has been viewed more than 850 times. " Caputo's personal Facebook page and Twitter account were deactivated at some point following Sunday's diatribe.

The live video, which the Times said was not irregular for Caputo to host on Sundays, followed criticism in response to reporting that Trump-appointed communications officials at HHS pushed to change language of weekly US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention documents and that Caputo, the assistant secretary of public affairs, demanded to see the documents before they were released.
