New Documents Show Fauci LIED to Congress: His Organization DID FUND Fund Gain-of-Function Research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology

St. Anthony Fauci just lost his halo.

For more than a year, the media has hailed our kindly scientist grandfather as some sort of infallible holy figure.

But new reporting casts doubt on Fauci’s insistence that no US money went to “gain-of-function” research — where scientists manipulate viruses, often making them more transmittable, to study their effects and develop treatments.

Records acquired by The Intercept detail grants that the US government’s scientific agencies gave to an outfit called EcoHealth Alliance, which funneled some of that money to research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. One clause in the contract says that “prior to altering mutant viruses,” the NIAID needed a “detailed description” of the proposed changes. Work on coronaviruses “must be submitted to NIAID for review and approval.”

The NIAID is the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, of which Anthony Fauci is the director.

In May, Fauci insisted that the US “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

Perhaps he defines “gain-of-function” so narrowly that altering mutant viruses doesn’t count, but Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) certainly doesn’t, tweeting, “Surprise, surprise — Fauci lied again.”



Rand Paul says Fauci should be held responsible for his lies, saying “He has lied dozens of times” – which is a felony offense.  Paul has referred this matter to the Department of Justice:
