Jane Orient is the executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a group that opposes government involvement in medicine, has promoted discredited medical theories and opposes mandatory vaccines. 

Orient was invited by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee to testify during a Tuesday hearing on early outpatient treatment for the virus.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) blasted Republicans and committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) for giving Orient a platform.
