Fox News just produced a smoking gun that could land Dr. Fauci behind bars
Dr. Fauci has a huge problem on his hands.
The scandal about the coverup of the origins of the coronavirus is about to catch up to him.
And Fox News just produced a smoking gun that could land Dr. Fauci behind bars.
According to a bombshell report produced by Fox News Channel’s Brett Baier, Dr. Fauci has not been honest with the American people or Congress with regards to what he knows about the origins of the coronavirus.
In late January 2020, Dr. Fauci received warning that the coronavirus looked like it was engineered in a lab.
He was also warned that the U.S. funded research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology through EcoHealth Alliance.
But Fauci convened a conference call of experts who agreed to suppress questions about the virus leaking out of a lab in communist China out of fear of how the public would react.
“On January 31, Dr. Kristian Andersen, a noted virologist at the Scripps Lab, privately told Fauci that after discussion with his colleagues some of COVID-19’s features look possibly engineered and the ‘genome is inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory,’” Fox News reported.
“Andersen added that the situation needed to be looked at more closely, at which point Fauci organized an all hands on deck conference call with colleagues where he was told that risky experiments with the novel coronavirus may not have gone through proper biosafety review and oversight,” Fox News continued.
“Hours later, Fauci hastily organized a call with dozens of worldwide virologists, and notes from the meeting obtained by Special Report reveal that suspicions of the lab leak theory were suppressed over concerns of how the public would react to news of possible Chinese government involvement.”
Some doctors on the call believed the virus escaping from the lab was the more likely explanation.
But Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins – the head of the National Institute of Health – fought for the idea that it originated naturally from people eating bats at the Wuhan wet market where the virus originated.
They all agreed to keep discussion of the lab leak origin story out of peer reviewed papers to avoid feeding so-called “conspiracy theories.”
Of course, Fauci and Collins had a reason to downplay the lab leak theory.
The National Institute of Health funneled a $600,000 grant through EcoHealth Alliance to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to study gain-of-function research.
That research did not create the virus.
But it did possibly make the virus more contagious and transmissible between humans.
And this latest report from Fox News calls into question Dr. Fauci’s denials before Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan and suppressing the lab leak origin story.
