Dr. Anthony Fauci became one of the world’s most famous persons over the last few years.
Until now, he has avoided consequences for any of the actions that made him notorious.
But new revelations show that Dr. Fauci cleared one public manipulation that could get him a prison jumpsuit.
Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared in the press nearly everyday over the course of the pandemic, steering the media to the messaging that federal health agencies wanted to push out to the American public.
And among his objectives, Fauci was heavily invested in making sure everyone adopted the official origin story on COVID-19.
The institutional media elites were all in, with many insisting that those who questioned Fauci’s proclamations about the lab leak theory were guilty of spreading conspiracy theories – or worse.
Fauci hit with damning Congressional report about February 2020 conference call
Other than swearing under oath that the National Institute of Health did not fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab, Fauci went to great lengths to avoid discussing gain-of-function research.
On one of the few occasions Dr. Fauci was forced to address the potential of a lab leak and gain-of-function research, Fauci suggested stricter controls on experiments would follow if it was found to have originated from a lab.
Such an admission could easily be characterized as motive.
And it fuels speculation surrounding new revelations from Congressional investigators that Dr. Fauci commissioned a study that promoted the zoonotic origin theory, and then pretended as if he had no hand in the study’s release when he steered reporters to it, in order to shift attention away from the lab leak theory.
The Republican-led House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic wrote in a memorandum, “On February 1, 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Francis Collins, and at least eleven other scientists convened a conference call to discuss COVID-19. It was on this conference call that Drs. Fauci and Collins were first warned that COVID-19 may have leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China and, further, may have been intentionally genetically manipulated.”
Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins quickly moved into overdrive to steer the conversation away from the lab leak.
The memo continued, “Only three days later, on February 4, 2020, four participants of the conference call authored a paper entitled ‘The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2’ (Proximal Origin) and sent a draft to Drs. Fauci and Collins. Prior to final publication in Nature Medicine, the paper was sent to Dr. Fauci for editing and approval.”
Within three days of the call, the scientists had slapped together a study, and pushed it out to a respectable academic journal to publish.
Fauci had opportunity to edit “Proximal Origin” study he cleared
The Committee memo continued, “On April 16, 2020, slightly more than two months after the original conference call, Dr. Collins emailed Dr. Fauci expressing dismay that Proximal Origin—which they saw prior to publication and were given the opportunity to edit—did not squash the lab leak hypothesis and asks if the NIH can do more to ‘put down’ the lab leak hypothesis. The next day—after Dr. Collins explicitly asked for more public pressure—Dr. Fauci cited Proximal Origin from the White House podium when asked if COVID-19 leaked from a lab.”
Collins and Fauci conspired behind the scenes to promote their origin narrative just as they also did to discredit those in the policy and scientific communities who publicly cast doubts, such as epidemiologists who drafted the Great Barrington Declaration.
The memo added, “New evidence released by the Select Subcommittee today suggests that Dr. Fauci ‘prompted’ the drafting of a publication that would ‘disprove’ the lab leak theory, the
the authors of this paper skewed available evidence to achieve that goal, and Dr. Jeremy Farrar went uncredited despite significant involvement.”
When Fauci was asked about the study at a press conference, he pretended as if he did not even know the doctors who worked on it, the same ones on the conference call with him earlier.
Textbook Fauci deception. Here he is, asked on 4/17/20 about the COVID lab leak theory, 8 weeks after he had the Proximal Origin paper written specifically to disprove a COVID lab leak origin, citing the paper as if it had nothing to do with him and he did not know the authors. https://t.co/Elo0rL5Wd4 pic.twitter.com/f0ZU6f4mYf

If the evidence put forward by the House Pandemic Select Committee bears out, Fauci will want to avoid any media cameras and microphones for the foreseeable future.
Because what’s come out of his mouth already has the potential to land him in even more hot water.
