(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Anthony Fauci directed scientists to suppress the lab leak theory according to a memo released by the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Majority Staff on Sunday.
The report explained Fauci’s role in producing a study that subverted the truth about the lab leak theory.
“New evidence released by the Select Subcommittee today suggests that Dr. Fauci ‘prompted’ the drafting of a publication that would ‘disprove’ the lab leak theory, the authors of this paper skewed available evidence to achieve that goal and Dr. Jeremy Farrar went uncredited despite significant involvement,” the report read.
“The evidence available to the Select Subcommittee suggests that Dr. Anthony Fauci
‘prompted’ Dr. Kristian Andersen, Professor, Scripps Research (Scripps), to write Proximal
Origin and that the goal was to ‘disprove’ any lab leak theory.”
On July 29, 2021 Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, sent a letter to Dr. Anderson.
On Aug., 18, 2021 Scripps replied to Comer and Jordan. The letter assured the congressmen that Dr. Anderson “’objectively’ investigated the origins and that Dr. Anthony Fauci did not attempt to influence his work.”
“Dr. Andersen’s view evolved consistent with the evidence at his disposal…Scientists must make conclusions supported by the available evidence, even when it conflicts with earlier
assessments,” the letter asserted.
However, “Both statements do not appear to be supported by the available evidence,” according to Sunday’s released memo.
On Feb., 8, 2021, Dr. Anderson contradicted this statement.
“Our main work over the last couple of weeks has been focused on trying to disprove any type of lab theory,” he wrote in an email.
Further evidence shows that Fauci did ‘prompt’ Dr. Anderson.
“There has been a lot of speculation, fear mongering, and conspiracies put forward in this space and we thought that bringing some clarity to this discussion might be of interest to Nature,” Dr. Anderson wrote in a Feb., 12, 2020 email.
“Prompted by Jeremy Farrah [sic], Tony Fauci, and Francis Collins, Eddie Holmes, Andrew Rambaut, Bob Garry, Ian Lipkin, and myself have been working through much of the (primarily) genetic data to provide agnostic and scientifically informed hypothesis around the origins of the virus.”
This email contradicts the statement that Fauci did not influence the conclusion that COVID did not come from a lab, as noted by Pj Media.
