For months reports in a few media outlets have noted that linked the COVID-19 virus to a lab in Wuhan, China.
These reports came roughly a year after President Donald Trump and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., first made the link and were then labeled crazy conspiracists.
As it became more and more likely that the virus did indeed originate in that lab, some began to tie the leak to American taxpayer funding provided to the Wuhan research facility by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Dr. Anthony Fauci has ran since the early 1980s.
Fauci initially denied this.
Now, not so much.
Could it be that some of the $600,000 Fauci directed to the lab was used in “gain-of-function” research that led to the highly transmissible and deadly coronavirus we are still dealing with?
It certainly sounds plausible.
The New York Post reports:
Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday defended the US giving hundreds of thousands of dollars for research at a Wuhan lab studying whether bat coronaviruses could be transmitted to humans — saying that it would have been 'negligent' not to do so. …
The National Institutes of Health earmarked $600,000 for a nonprofit linked to Wuhan Institute of Virology, which has been at the center of lab-leak theories about the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fauci, who is the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, argued that it was necessary to pursue the research.
'It was a… proposal that was peer-reviewed and given a very high rating for the importance of why it should be done,' Fauci told CNN anchor Jake Tapper on 'State of the Union.'
'[The proposal was] to be able to go and do a survey of what was going on among the bat population because everyone in the world was trying to figure out what the original source of the original SARS CoV-1 was,' he continued.
'It was almost as if you didn't pursue that research you would be negligent because you were trying to find out how you could prevent this from happening again,' Fauci said.
'If we were starting to look for bats in Secaucus, New Jersey, or Fairfax County, Virginia, it wouldn't contribute very much to the standing of where SARS COV-1 originated,' he added.
Unreal. This man has lied about this virus from the outset when he told everyone not to wear masks (because the government and hospitals needed them).
In a functional republic, federal prosecutors might be preparing to prosecute this man.

Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
