Fauci is back in hot water and many are claiming this is the smoking gun that will force the NIAID to resign.
A report from the left wing news organization The Intercept has forced the NIH to make a “correction” the flies in the face of testimony from NIH leadership.
The bombshell report seems to have led to the NIH Director resignation just a couple of weeks ago. Journalists at The Intercept were looking trying to find a paper trail between the NIH or Eco health Alliance about gain of function research.
The NIH has been stonewalling The Intercept and other organizations and it is beginning to be clear why. The NIH received documents in 2018, 2020, and 2021 that EcoHealth Alliance violated the terms and conditions of the NIH grant by using the money to research gain of function in Wuhan.
It could be possible that Collins, Fauci, and Tabak were not truthful when they testified before Congress.
After, the “correction” was issued by the NIH Rep. Mark Medows posted a clip of Fauci’s testimony citing it’s “suddenly worth a re-watch.”
This clip of @SenJohnKennedy questioning Dr. Fauci in May on ‘gain of function’ research is suddenly worth a re-watch.
The correction was sent to Rep. James Conner (R-Indiana) who is a ranking member of the House Oversight Committee. The letter states that the NIH knew US taxpayers dollars were being used to fund a research project in 2018 and 2019 that tested “if spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model.”
It’s a moot point if the research being funded by the NIH did turn out being COVID-19 (even if it was they’ll never tell us), what this does show is a few people were not telling Congress the truth.
One thing is for certain, Fauci’s words are going to bite him right in the butt. In July he said to Senator Rand Paul, “If anybody is lying here, senator, it is you.” It occurred during a heated exchange about gain-of-function research and the correction by the NIH blows up the highest paid federal employee claims.
