(PresidentialInsider.com)- In just the latest development in the effort to link Dr. Anthony Fauci to the
It seems like every day we’re learning more about Dr. Anthony Fauci’s connections to the now-infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology. Now, even mainstream news outlets have admitted the Wuhan lab may have played a role in the creation of the COVID-19 virus. All the while, Dr. Fauci has adamantly denied any connection to their research.
Senator Rand Paul pressed Dr. Fauci for answers when he testified before the Senate health committee recently, in an exchange that quickly went viral. Fauci categorically denied that his National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases played any role in “gain-of-function” research with Wuhan lab.
Fauci reiterated that position several times in his testimony, though he admitted he did not “have any accounting of what the Chinese may have done, and I’m fully in favor of any further investigation of what went on in China.”
But now there is yet another new revelation linking Dr. Fauci to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
In 2017, the lab’s publication Virologica Sinica described in explicit detail its role in gain-of-function research. Its editorial board is staffed by nine researchers from the lab, including the director of the Institute’s Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases.
But another member of the board, Jens Kuhn, is of particular interest. As it happens, Kuhn is Director of Virology at the Integrated Research Facility in NIAID’s Division of Clinical Research. Kuhn’s bio even describes the work he does as specializing in “highly virulent viral human and animal pathogens, biodefense…and biological arms control.” Hmm.
So now, Fauci’s subordinate turns out to be a close collaborator with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the purported origin of the COVID-19 virus. Not only that, but the lab’s journal also lays out exactly the kind of gain-of-function research that they do. And yet, Dr. Fauci still says that his organization had nothing to do with gain-of-function research there—absolutely no American taxpayer funds spent there. Right.
Dr. Fauci is running away from this story as fast as he can, but even he may not be able to escape it. As it becomes clearer and clearer the role our own research institutions and officials played in the Wuhan lab, Americans will rightly start to wonder why they should listen to the people who got us into this mess in the first place.
