White House Quick to Defend Dr. Fauci

"White House Coronavirus Update Briefing" by The White House is marked with CC PDM 1.0

Dr. Fauci has been in the news a lot recently, and not for good reasons. His recently exposed emails have shown the world a different story. 

“White House Press Briefing” by The White House is marked with CC PDM 1.0

A certain health official thanked Dr. Fauci for publicly acknowledging that scientific evidence does not support the lab-leak explanation. In an interview with CNN, Dr. Fauci stated that opponents had taken the email out of context and that he had an open mind concerning the virus’s origin.

In contradiction, Dr. Kristian Andersen, a virologist at the Scripps Research Institute in California, wrote to Fauci. In this writing, Andersen said that he and his colleagues had to examine closely all the sequences to recognize that some of the traits look designed.

Through a ground-breaking study published at the start of 2020, a group of Indian scientists was the first to suggest that the coronavirus may be manufactured in a lab.

Dr. Fauci insisted on Thursday that an email discussion between himself and an executive from a medical non-profit organization (that helped support research at a diseases lab in Wuhan, China, where COVID-19 was first detected) contained nothing incriminating.

From 2014 through 2019, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) provided $600,000 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This money came through a grant to the New York-based non-profit group EcoHealth Alliance to investigate bat coronaviruses.

In April 2020, EcoHealth Alliance’s Peter Daszak addressed Dr. Fauci, complimenting him as “brave” for attempting to squash the lab leak scenario. Fauci responded, thanking Daszak for his kind words.

Gain of Function Research

Senator Paul quizzed Fauci on the lab-leak idea, as well as presenting incriminating proof that the NIAID director financed gain of function research at the same Wuhan virology lab.

This latest email leak seriously deals a blow to Fauci’s credibility. The so-called expert repeatedly maintained that COVID wasn’t man-made until Senator Paul presented compelling evidence that shifted the narrative completely.

Biden’s New Investigation

President Joe Biden has requested an investigation into the matter; this enraged China who still claims that the idea the virus leaked from the lab is nonsense.

They still claim that early COVID-19 cases in China were related to a seafood market in Wuhan, prompting experts to speculate that the virus was first transmitted to humans from animals.

However, recent US media sources stated that the virus may have originated in a Wuhan lab, possibly as a result of an unintentional breach.

Despite this, Fauci is still assisting in the development of President Joe Biden’s pandemic strategy.

White House officials and members of the liberal media still hail him a hero and defend his honor as far as they can. The spin doctors of the left are working hard to make sure that Donald Trump will never be able to use this scandal to fuel his comeback.
