Former White House coronavirus testing czar Admiral Brett Giroir appeared on Fox News Thursday morning in what turned out to be a bombshell interview with Bill Hemmer.
While discussing the virus’ origin and Dr. Fauci’s public statements, Giroir confidently said that “it is not outrageous to hypothesize that [COVID-19] could have been part of an offensive bioweapons program and leaked out accidentally”:
The most likely explanation is that it was gain-of-function mutation work that leaked out.
The United States does not have an offensive biological weapons program. There are multiple open sources of intel that suggests that China has an extensive biological weapons program. One that is integrated between state laboratories, academia, and private industries.
The most likely explanation is that this was dangerous research that could have been funded by the NIH and it leaked out by a laboratory accident.
Wow. If that is true, few stories in history would compare to its magnitude.
Giroir went on to say Fauci’s recent comments are an attempt to “cover his ass” as his year-long claims that the virus originated from animals to humans was “completely false.”
“There was no pattern of mutations that suggest that it went right from an animal, in a natural situation, to human, ” Giroir tells Hemmer. “There’s still no evidence to show that. Fauci’s statement was completely wrong. It was obvious to be antagonistic to President Trump.”
