(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In a recent deposition, former COVID Czar Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared to forget many important details while being questioned about his involvement the coronavirus research in Wuhan, China.
The transcript of the conversation was released by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, and it contains the details of Fauci’s deposition hearing as a part of an ongoing lawsuit challenging the Biden Administration’s violations of the constitution, especially in respect to freedom of speech, during the COVID lockdowns.
More specifically, the investigation concerns Fauci’s relationship with EcoHealth Alliance, run by Peter Daszak, which was closely related to the possible outbreak in Wuhan, China, reported Zero Hedge.
And despite having spoken about and heard about EcoHealth Alliance perhaps hundreds of times, Fauci could only say that he was “vaguely familiar” with their work.
“I’m vaguely familiar with the fact that EcoHealth Alliance has been doing research on trying to understand the bat coronavirus emergence,” he said.
Later in the interview, Fauci also pretended to not know why he sent an article discussing gain-of-function research in China to one of his colleagues, advising that they speak about it via phone.
“Do you remember talking to [Fauci’s colleague] at all that day?” Fauci was asked.
“I might have, but I don’t recall,” he replied, later admitting that he “wanted to be briefed on the scope of what our collaborations were and the kind of work that we were funding in China.”
In another bombshell moment, Fauci was asked whether he recalled conversations with another colleague, Francis Collins, regarding whether or not NIAID may have funded coronavirus research in Wuhan.
“You know, I’m not sure exactly the point your making,” he said. “I don’t recall.”
After the transcript was released, Schmitt blasted Fauci on Twitter for his apparent amnesia.
According to the transcript, Dr. Fauci said “I don’t recall” 174 times, including when asked about emails that he sent, interviews that he gave, and other important information.
