The walls may be starting to close in on Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, who is now facing questions over his role in approving funding of research at the Chinese lab that the coronavirus may have escaped from.
Despite the narrative that COVID was the product of a bat in a “wet market”, the theory that the virus actually originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology has gained increasing support including a bombshell article by a renowned former New York Times science reporter.
The article by Nicholas Wade makes the case that the virus likely did come from the lab and that Fauci who was in charge of disbursing grant money approved of funding the “gain of function” research that had been banned under the Obama administration.
More than anyone, Fauci has driven the response to COVID, championing the punishing lockdowns and mask mandates. Sadly, despite being on television on a daily basis, he is never asked about his role in what was taking place in Wuhan.
However, Tucker Carlson broke the mold by asking a VERY serious question: “why isn’t there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in this pandemic?”
According to Carlson, “Millions of people have died of COVID-19. So it’s not a matter of score-settling or blame assignment to figure out where it came from. If you want to prevent the next global pandemic, you have to figure out how this one started.” He said.
Tucker continued; “And so the World Health Organization said it would get to the bottom of it. The World Health Organization, of course, is beholden to China, and so it tried to hide the basic facts of the origins of this pandemic. And to hide those facts, WHO appointed none other than Peter Daszak as the only America-based representative on the investigative team looking into where the virus came from.”
He added, “In what turned out to be a sham report, that team concluded that it is quote, “extremely unlikely” that the virus came from the Wuhan lab. Again, that’s not true.”
Carlson then zeroed in on Fauci, “The WHO’s investigation in the origins of the virus was fraudulent and that matters to public health globally. But one thing you’ll notice is that Tony Fauci did not say that. Why? Because once again, he is implicated in it personally.” He said, “The gain-of-function research that Peter Daszak was bragging about in the video we just showed you had in fact, been banned explicitly by the U.S. government.”
Tucker delivered the damning details; “There was a federal moratorium on the funding of exactly the kind of gain-of-function experiments that went on at the Wuhan lab due to disastrous effects. So why didn’t the U.S. government halt its funding of the lab in Wuhan? That is a central question and Nicholas Wade, to his great credit, looked into it. And here’s what he found, quote, “Someone wrote a loophole into the moratorium. The moratorium specifically barred funding of any gain-of-function research that increased the pathogenicity of the flu, MERS or SARS viruses.” He said, “But then a footnote on page two of the moratorium document states that quote, ‘an exception from the research pause may be obtained if the head of the U.S. government funding agency determines that the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.’”
He continued to make his case; “And that’s exactly the loophole that was exploited. Who signed off on this? Tony Fauci, possibly, along with Francis Collins, the Director of the NIH invoked that special exemption in order to keep funding the Wuhan lab and the deadly experiments that were going on there, the experiments that clearly went so wrong.” Tucker said.
Carlson added, “According to Richard Ebright quote, “Unfortunately, the NIAID Director (that would be Fauci) and the NIH Director exploited this loophole to issue exemptions to projects subject to pause, preposterously asserting that the exempted research was, quote, ‘urgently necessary to protect public health or national security and thereby nullifying the pause.’”
He summed it all up; “This wouldn’t have happened if Tony Fauci didn’t allow it to happen. That is clear.” Tucker said, “It’s an amazing story. It is a shocking story.”
“In a functional country, there would be a criminal investigation currently underway into Tony Fauci’s role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country and changed it forever. So why isn’t there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in this pandemic?” He said.
Fauci was finally put on the spot over the Wuhan research by Senator Rand Paul on Tuesday.
Judging by Fauci’s squirming body language he has to realize that the jig is up and the only thing that stands between him and justice is a rapidly crumbling wall of media lies.
