Documents obtained by a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) run contrary to Dr. Fauci’s narrative of having nothing to do with the research and spread of the coronavirus which causes COVID-19 and the world-wide pandemic which has ensued.
Where It Started
Last week, the Intercept released the results from its bombshell FOIA which show Anthony Fauci, who is Biden’s Chief Medical Advisor and head of the National Institute of Health (NIH), granted millions of dollars to an organization to conduct gain-of-function research of the coronavirus virus causing the disease which has come to be known as COVID-19.
Up until this revelation a week ago, there was an unpublished and previously clandestine grant awarded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, an organization run by the Chief Medical Advisor. An American research NGO, EcoHealth Alliance, received the $3.1 million grant which had the purpose of discovering the risk bat coronaviruses had of emerging on the global scene.
$599,000 of Fauci’s grant was appointed directly to the research of how to turn the coronaviruses in question into super-viruses that can spread more quickly and kill more people than if left untampered by humanity - the basic definition of “gain-of-function” research. The National Review reports,
Fauci has repeatedly insisted during his Senate testimony that the research being funded by the NIH at the WIV did not qualify as “gain-of-function” under the NIH’s current definition. But critics, including Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, have accused Fauci of playing semantic games by excluding research which makes bat coronaviruses more transmissible — the commonly accepted definition of “gain-of-function” — from his more convenient definition.
Dr. Richard Ebright, biosafety expert and professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Rutgers University, has also disputed Fauci’s claims. Primarily, he has rebutted Fauci’s chief declaration that the NIH “has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology [WIV]” as “demonstrably false.”
Ebright told National Review that the NIH-financed work at the WIV “epitomizes” the definition of gain-of-function research, which involves working with “enhanced potential pandemic pathogen (PPP)” or those pathogens “resulting from the enhancement of the transmissibility and/or virulence of a pathogen.”
Although Republican officials have called for an investigation into Fauci’s responsibility for what is tantamount to the creation of COVID-19, the Democrat Party has remained all but silent on the issue, defending Fauci if nothing else.
Biden accused Trump of being responsible for literally every single death from COVID-19 in America. If these revelations are true, then Anthony Fauci is responsible for literally every single death from COVID-19 in the world.
Which is the party of science, liberation, and humanity again?
