(PresidentialInsider.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci is an expert at flip-flopping, and his latest is claiming that he has always had an open mind over the possibility that the COVID-19 virus leaked from a laboratory.
Isn’t it funny how, now that former President Donald Trump is out of the White House, Democrats and Democrat allies like Dr. Fauci are willing to admit that this virus might have come from the Wuhan Institute of Virology?
During an interview on Wednesday with CBS’ “This Morning,” Fauci said that most scientists will say that the virus is still more likely to have originated in nature, but that he has an “open mind” to the possibility that it came from a lab.
If that was the case, why didn’t Dr. Fauci speak up when conservatives were being slammed as conspiracy theorists for saying something he said he has an “open mind” to?
Since the early days of the pandemic, Dr. Fauci has hammered home his belief that the virus originated in nature. However, thousands of emails from Fauci’s account that were revealed after a Freedom of Information Act Request show that he attended a number of virtual discussions with other public health officials and scientists who said that the science suggests the virus likely didn’t come from nature.
In May of last year, Fauci also said that looking at the evolution of the coronavirus in bats, it is “very, very strongly leaning toward” the likelihood that it could not have been deliberately manipulated.
He also told CBS that he thinks it’s a “bit of a distortion” to suggest that his department deliberately suppressed the evidence suggesting the virus came from the Wuhan.
Do you think it’s a distortion? We’re not so sure…
