The nations “top” doctor just got a bad diagnosis.
According to Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson, “the possibility that National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony Fauci had a role in research that could have led to the spread of COVID-19 to humans warranted a criminal investigation.”
Carlson’s comments are based on the possibility that the “coronavirus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, and Fauci had signed off on funding of gain-of-function research on viruses like COVID-19.”
The Fox host identified a loophole Fauci apparently used that could lead to criminal liability.
There was a federal moratorium on the funding of exactly the kind of gain-of-function experiments that went on at the Wuhan lab due to disastrous effects. So why didn’t the U.S. government halt its funding of the lab in Wuhan? That is a central question and Nicholas Wade, to his great credit, looked into it. And here’s what he found, quote, “Someone wrote a loophole into the moratorium. The moratorium specifically barred funding of any gain-of-function research that increased the pathogenicity of the flu, MERS or SARS viruses. But then a footnote on page two of the moratorium document states that quote, ‘an exception from the research pause may be obtained if the head of the U.S. government funding agency determines that the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health or national security.'”
What happened next was shocking.
“That’s exactly the loophole that was exploited,” Carlson said. “Who signed off on this? Tony Fauci, possibly, along with Francis Collins, the Director of the NIH invoked that special exemption in order to keep funding the Wuhan lab and the deadly experiments that were going on there, the experiments that clearly went so wrong … In a functional country, there would be a criminal investigation currently underway into Tony Fauci’s role in the COVID pandemic that has killed millions and halted our country and changed it forever. So why isn’t there a criminal investigation into Tony Fauci’s role in this pandemic?”
