The web of lies that Dr. Fauci tangled is closing in on him.
And quickly, too.
It went from “questionable morals” to lies that could land him in a world of legal trouble.
A new book by two Washington Post reporters details how Fauci may have lied about the Wuhan lab funding in a House hearing about a year ago.
“…Fauci resisted a presidential directive from the Trump White House in April of 2020 to cancel a research grant to a nonprofit that was funneling taxpayer dollars to the Wuhan lab.
Fauci knew why the order had been issued. President Trump was alarmed by various reports connecting risky gain-of-function research inside the lab to the outbreak of the deadly virus under the so-called “lab leak theory.” The possibility that Fauci’s group at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) might have helped finance a man-made catastrophe was a frightening scenario.
The book describes specific conversations Fauci had with the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), as well as verbatim conversations with a longtime friend who pleaded with the medical adviser to defy the directive cancelling the funding. When Fauci and his colleague, Francis Collins, the director of NIH, balked at complying with the order, “The HHS general counsel told them to do it anyway and made clear it was a direct order from the president, implying that their jobs were on the line if they didn’t comply,” according to the book.Fox News
I said it before, and I’ll say it again, the Fauci-Wuhan connection is not just about COVID-19; it’s about our confidence in people who are supposed to lead us through hard times.
It might sound strange after all these shenanigans, but Fauci is STILL supposed to be our go-to guy for coronavirus information.
He’s STILL the director of the NIAID (U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) and STILL the chief medical advisor to the president.
After all the horseplay, who are we supposed to believe a word that comes out of his mouth?
