He is screwed!
Following the release of a report revealing Dr. Fauci was aware that COVID-19 was created in a lab, Maria Bartimoro Fox News Host, asked Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH, whether he would “investigate Anthony Fauci” if the GOP was to regain control of the House, the congressman responded in the affirmative, saying “Yes. Yes, we definitely are.”
The report, published in part by Telegraph, reveals that top U.S. and British scientists were convinced SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, had been generated in a laboratory in Wuhan, China, but warned against a debate in the media to curb “conspiracy” and foster “international harmony.
Continuing his statements, Jordan promised that if Americans were to put Republicans back in charge of the House, the GOP would investigate Dr. Fauci. He pointed to knowing “without a doubt” that Fauci was aware on January 31 and February 1, 2020, that the virus was lab-manufactured. Validating his claims Jordan points to one scientist, saying, “I don’t see how this can happen in nature, but it would be easy to do it in a lab.”
Jordan then went on to note how “in a matter of days, they changed their position” by writing an article which would appear in the Nature of Medicine Magazine and be cited in a “famous letter in The Lancet, which became the gospel for the fact that Fauci can go out and tell people it didn’t come from a lab.”
Yet the changing stance on the virus’s origins followed many experts sharing their opinion with Dr. Fauci that they believed the virus was created in a lab. In an email on January 31, 2020, Dr. Kristian Anderson wrote to Dr. Fauci says the “‘Virus looks engineered. Virus not consistent with evolutionary theory.”
Anderson’s email came before Sir Jeremy Farrar’s, director of the Wellcome Trust email, writing to Dr. Fauci that a likely explanation was that Covid had rapidly evolved from a Sars-like virus inside human tissue in a low-security lab. The email was sent on February 2, 2020.
But, this information being released to the media was hampered when Dutch virologist Dr.Ron Fouchier and former National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director, Dr. Francis Collins, encouraged experts to convene “in a confidence-inspiring framework” to prevent “voices of conspiracy” from dominating.
