Looks like Fauci should have taken lessons from Hillary Clinton (or, for that matter, Liz Cheney’s husband) when it comes to the art of erasing e-mails.
As an utter treasure trove of information regarding Fauci and COVID was just released, courtesy of a mass of e-mails sent to or from Fauci himself.
Needless to say, these e-mails pretty much verify the vast majority of what Trump has long been saying about Fauci, who apparently spent more time fearing the Chinese’s reactions than protecting Americans.
After all, consider one gem leaked from these e-mails:
“I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.” [Source: Breitbart]
That e-mail was sent on April 18, 2020, from Peter Daszak, the President of the EcoHealth Alliance, to Fauci.
And who exactly is Mr. Daszak?
Well none other than the man responsible for shepherding American taxpayer dollars into a Chinese-run laboratory that ended up (in all likelihood) releasing a virus, which in turn caused unprecedented death and destruction around the globe, including to the same taxpayers that funded (at least in part) the virus’s creation in the first place!
In other words, no wonder Fauci constantly challenged Trump every single time that Trump rather clearly pointed out that the entire pandemic was likely manufactured from the beginning.
And Fauci was sure to promote this view to any reporter that asked him, regardless of the real cost that such duplicity would bring to the United States (not to mention the rest of the world).
Even when a reporter directly asked Fauci about the origins of the virus.
“Mr. President, I wanted to ask Dr. Fauci: Could you address these suggestions or concerns that this virus was somehow manmade, possibly came out of a laboratory in China?” [Source: Townhall]
As seen below, that commentary constitutes a standard elitist Fauci response to such questions, at least a year ago.
“A group of highly qualified evolutionary virologists looked at the sequences in bats as they evolve. The mutations that it took to get to the point where it is now are totally consistent with a jump of a species from an animal to a human.” [Source: Breitbart]
Too bad that Fauci had already been informed four months earlier that COVID very well may have been “engineered,” based upon an email sent to him by NIH Scientist Kristian Anderson.
“On a phylogenetic tree the virus looks totally normal and the close clustering with bats suggest that bats serve as the reservoir. The unusual features of the virus make up a really small part of the genome (<0.1%) so one has to look really closely at all the sequences to see that some of the features (potentially) look engineered.”[Source: Townhall]
Apparently, Fauci didn’t bother to “look really closely,” opting for partisan politics instead.
So, Fauci was answering definitively in April that the virus was natural in origin, in spite of receiving information from the NIH on the possibly “engineered” virus in January.
Sounds about right.
On the other hand, Trump, who was ironically much more cautious, did not jump on the “natural origin” bandwagon, but he did indicate that a range of theories were being investigated, including the lab leak theory specifically.
“We’re looking at it … A lot of people are looking at it – it seems to make sense.” [Source: Breitbart]
As usual, Trump was correct.
Frankly, the lab leak theory has made total sense from the start, and apparently, over a year later, it now suddenly makes a semblance of sense to Fauci and the fictional news media.
Either that, or Fauci knew his emails would be imminently publicized, which would certainly explain all his rather sudden public back-pedaling over the past several weeks.
Straight back to what Trump was saying since Day 1.
Imagine if Fauci had kept his message more aligned with Trump’s from the start, especially since Fauci is literally saying now what Trump was saying a year ago.
Then again, since Fauci has maintained his dramatically overpaid and overexposed position in the Biden administration, perhaps he had a vested interest all along in publicly countering Trump, in spite of all the chaos his posturing caused.
What’s even more disturbing is that Fauci effectively sided with China over the United States by continuously defying Trump, and Fauci was further empowered by the fake news media, which was more concerned about insulting Trump than truly informing Americans.
