(RepublicanInformer.com)- One of the many anti-Trump tell-all books working its way over the transom is a book by two Washington Post reporters called “Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic that Changed the World.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci is one of the people interviewed for this book. And thanks to his inability to keep track of what he says to whom, apparently Fauci forgot what he admitted in the book.
In June 2020, when Dr. Fauci appeared before a House committee, he told committee members that he “didn’t know the reason” behind the President’s decision to end funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in April 2020.
However, in his account given to the authors of “Nightmare Scenario,” Fauci admitted that he was fully aware at the time the reasons President Trump gave for halting funding. According to the book, Fauci explained that President Trump made his decision out of concern over the lab’s safety record and the president’s fear that the Wuhan Institute was the source of the pandemic.
So why tell Congress two months later that he didn’t know why?
It could be as simple as Dr. Fauci wanting to damage President Trump during an election year by making Trump’s decisions seem capricious, unliateral, and uninformed.
Or it could just be that Dr. Anthony Fauci was engaged in covering up for the Wuhan Institute of Virology and his role in funding their research.
Whatever the reason for his dishonesty, members of Congress are understandably concerned over Fauci lying to them. Congressman Mullen (R-OK) told Fox News that Fauci’s contradictory statements only reaffirm the need for a full investigation into the origins of COVID-19.
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) has also called for a full investigation by Congress. Thus far over 200 House Republicans have joined with Scalise in demanding Nancy Pelosi investigate the origin of COVID-19 and the role the Chinese Communist Party had in hiding the truth.
However, any “full investigation” must also include both the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and its director Dr. Anthony Fauci. In WaterGate parlance, Congress has to get to the bottom of the question what did Anthony Fauci know and when did he know it?
His casual dishonesty in Congressional testimony puts in doubt much of what Fauci says.
And now, between the release of thousands of Fauci’s emails and the revelations coming from “Nightmare Scenario,” it is hardly surprising that Americans are beginning to distrust the man running the White House’s COVID response.
In a recent Fox News poll, 60% of Americans believe that the pandemic originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology while only 31% still believe the natural transmission theory Fauci peddled since the start of the pandemic.
