White House Chief Medical Adviser and NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci is in deep trouble as the truth of the Covid-19 pandemic's origins is beginning to surface.
An interim report by the minority oversight staff of the Senate Health Committee was released this month, and during an interview on "CNN Tonight," Fauci stated that the report's conclusions were "unfortunate."
Host Jake Tapper asked Fauci, "There is a new interim report out from the top Republican on the Senate Health Committee. It's an interim report, and it's not from the Intelligence Committee, and it's just from one party, not unanimous, not bipartisan. But this report does say that the COVID-19 pandemic was, 'more likely than not, the result of a research-related incident.' Have you seen the report? What is your reaction?"
Fauci responded, "Well, I haven't read it carefully. I've skimmed through it. But I can tell you, Jake, that it's really unfortunate because there are at least two very important, peer-reviewed, scientific publications most recently that completely diverge from the conclusions that came out in the report to which you're referring."
Fauci is preparing his defenses, but his admission that he hadn't carefully read the report casts serious doubts about if the report's findings have truly been debunked.
The report's conclusion that the Covid-19 pandemic was caused by the lab in Wuhan is bad news for Fauci, who played a role in funding that lab and the questionable research they were conducting.
