Bombshell Email Reveals Dr. Fauci’s Role In Silencing Wuhan Lab Leak Theory

OPINION | This article contains commentary that reflects the author's opinion.

Unredacted emails from Dr. Anthony Fauci show his efforts behind closed doors to shut down the Wuhan lab leak theory as an explanation for the origins of COVID-19.

At the same time, Fauci had an obvious conflict of interest as the Wuhan lab was receiving funding from the Pentagon and operated as a subcontractor of EcoHealth Alliance.

🚨 POLL: Did COVID-19 leak from a lab?
YES 👍 or NO 👎

On January 27, 2020, Dr. Fauci knew NIAID had funded EcoHealth Alliance and that the WIV was a subgrantee of EcoHealth. NIAID knew had gain-of-function potential on novel bat coronaviruses. EcoHealth was not in compliance with its grant reporting.

On February 1, 2020, Dr. Fauci, Dr. Collins, and at least eleven other scientists had a conference call to discuss COVID-19. On the call, Fauci and Collins were first warned that COVID-19 may have leaked from the WIV and may have been intentionally genetically manipulated.

On February 4, 2020, four participants of the conference call abandoned their belief the virus originated from the Wuhan lab after speaking to Collins and Fauci.

They authored a paper entitled “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2″ and sent it to Dr. Fauci for editing and approval.

On April 16, 2020, Dr. Collins emailed Dr. Fauci complained about the Nature Medicine article which they weren’t allowed to edit and suggested the possibility of the lab leak hypothesis.

Collins asked Fauci if there is more they can do to “put down” the lab leak hypothesis.

On April 17, 2020, Dr. Collins asked for more public pressure.

Dr. Fauci said the Nature Medicine paper from the White House podium can be used as an effort to silence the hypothesis COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan lab.
