Evidence finds that Fauci has not been truthful about his role in funding research tied to the pandemic’s origin.
A new investigative documentary by the U.K.'s Channel 4 detailed some of the strongest evidence to date that the COVID19 pandemic may have started from a lab leak in Wuhan, China. At the very least, the documentary’s interviews with experts and review of documents made explicit how China has misled the world about its research with dangerous pathogens while it promoted ludicrous conspiracies that the pandemic may have started in the United States.
The documentary clarified one other point: Anthony Fauci lied before Congress and the American public when he claimed during a congressional hearing that he has not funded gain-of-function research conducted by the Wuhan Institute of Virology. But President Biden has campaigned on honesty and decency. The question now for President Biden is, “What will you do with Fauci now that he has broken the law and violated the public trust by lying before Congress?”
In a segment that runs a little under two minutes, Fauci distorts reality and denies that he has funded gain-of-function studies at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). The term gain-of-function refers to taking a virus or other pathogen and changing it to become more transmissible, or more lethal.
