(RepublicanInformer.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, finally admitted this week that Republicans, conservatives, and former member of President Donald Trump’s administration could well be right about the COVID-19 virus coming from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
It’s something that the left-wing media has long dismissed as a conspiracy theory – and something that, at one time, even got people banned from social media for saying. Investment news website Zero Hedge was famously banned from Twitter last year for making the claim, only to be reinstated later when evidence suggested that the virus could well have leaked from a laboratory.
Fauci admitted that it was a possibility during a Capitol Hill hearing when he was grilled on the topic by Republican libertarian Senator Rand Paul and Senator Roger Marshall. Both Senators are doctors.
“Do you think it’s possible that COVID-19 arose from a lab accident…in Wuhan, and should it be fully investigated?” Senator Marshall asked.
It prompted Fauci to finally admit it.
“That possibility certainly exists,” he said. “And I am totally in favor of a full investigation of whether that could have happened.”
And there you have it, people. It took long enough, but now that Dr. Anthony Fauci has said it, the press and the Democrats can’t ever criticize Republicans for saying it too. Unless, of course, they decide to throw Dr. Fauci under the bus…
Senator Paul also asked Fauci about alleged American funding of the Chinese lab, prompting the public health official to claim that he was “completely incorrect.”
“The NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute,” Fauci said.
Do you believe that?
There seems to be plenty of reason to believe that the virus leaked from the Chinese laboratory, with one good reason being that the World Health Organization released a report influenced by China claiming it was “extremely unlikely.”
If the Chinese Communist Party had anything to do with that report, you might be safe to assume the opposite of what it claims is true.
