In light of the recent release of documents by the House Select Subcommittee on the COVID Pandemic, it is becoming increasingly clear that Dr. Anthony Fauci was not only aware of the gain-of-function research being conducted at the Wuhan laboratory but also recognized the artificial origins of COVID-19. The Wuhan Institute of Virology, funded by the National Institutes of Health, has been known to engage in gain-of-function experiments. The newly disclosed documents reveal that on February 1, 2020, Fauci wrote a letter acknowledging the unusual mutations in the virus that would be highly unlikely to occur naturally in bats, raising suspicions of intentional manipulation.
The suspicion was further supported by the fact that scientists in Wuhan were actively studying the molecular mechanisms of bat viruses adapting to human infection. Considering the virus originated in Wuhan, these facts cannot be ignored. Some scientists expressed stronger beliefs in the possibility of intentional manipulation, while others disagreed, suggesting a natural evolution. However, it is noteworthy that Fauci spent years dismissing the idea of a lab leak and undermining those who argued for it.
Rep. Rich McCormick (R-Ga.) highlighted the significance of Fauci’s knowledge and his refusal to consider the lab leak theory despite mounting evidence. The more data scientists gathered, the more it pointed towards the possibility of a lab leak. Yet, Fauci and others persistently pushed the narrative that COVID-19 originated naturally. The subsequent destruction of records and disappearance of witnesses further raises doubts about the official narrative.
During the pandemic, Fauci was hailed as a national hero, but the revelations from these documents paint a different picture. It appears that he was aware of the true origins of the virus and actively downplayed the possibility of a lab leak. The consequences of his actions and the suppression of alternative theories cannot be ignored. It is crucial to hold Fauci accountable and thoroughly investigate the origins of COVID-19 to ensure transparency and prevent such a catastrophic event from happening again.
