Dr. Anthony Fauci tried to pull a fast one during the pandemic.
He hoped one document would never see the light of day.
But Anthony Fauci landed himself in hot water after a leak exposed this massive cover-up.
One of the biggest mysteries during the pandemic is beginning to unravel.
After initially being dismissed as a conspiracy theory and actively suppressed on social media, support for the theory that the virus escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China is growing.
The FBI and Department of Energy both concluded that it was highly likely that the virus leaked from a Chinese lab.
Dr. Anthony Fauci spent years dismissing the lab leak theory with the claim that the virus jumped from animals to humans at a Chinese wet market.
Newly uncovered emails by House Republicans show that Fauci began trying to shut down the lab leak theory as soon as the pandemic started.
The emails show that Fauci commissioned and had final approval over a scientific research paper that sought to disprove the lab leak in February 2020.
The paper claimed that the wet market theory was the most likely source of the virus.
The authors of the research paper sent it over to Fauci for edits twice before it was finally published on February 17, 2020 in Nature Medicine.
Fauci used the paper, titled “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2,” at an April 17, 2020 White House press conference as proof that the lab leak theory was unlikely.
“There was a study recently,” Fauci told the White House reporters in April 2020, “where a group of highly qualified evolutionary virologists looked at the sequences in bats as they evolve and the mutations that it took to get to the point where it is now is totally consistent with a jump of a species from an animal to a human.”
“So, the paper will be available,” Fauci continued. “I don’t have the authors right now, but we can make it available to you.”
Fauci made it seem as if he didn’t know the authors or had anything to do with the study that he cited when he was actually the one behind it from the get-go.
Emails from the House Oversight Committee revealed that the study’s co-author Dr. Kristian Andersen said that Fauci “prompted” him to produce a study with the intent to “disprove” the lab leak theory.
“Our main work over the last couple of weeks has been focused on trying to disprove any type of lab theory,” a February 8, 2020 email from Anderson read.
From the beginning of the pandemic, Fauci began working to push his preferred narrative on the virus’s origin and dismiss anyone who challenged it.
Dismissing the lab leak theory could be a way for Fauci to distance himself from the possibility he played a role in the virus’ creation.
More and more evidence has emerged that he authorized NIH funding of risky gain-of-function research, that genetically modified viruses to make them more deadly, at the Wuhan lab.
Now Anthony Fauci’s blatant dishonesty during the pandemic is beginning to catch up with him.
