As the world’s leading epidemiologist Dr. Anthony Fauci continues to answer for emails showcasing a “gain-of-function” warning related to a lab in Wuhan, China, those who have been calling out the doctor’s ties to a potential cover-up are in full force as details continue to emerge.
Long-time critic of Fauci and Fox News host Sean Hannity started his show on Thursday by ripping into the lack of transparency coming from America’s favorite expert on viruses.
“Now, Fauci and the entire world knew that the Wuhan facility was experimenting with gain of function with coronaviruses. Logically, any idiot could have realized on January 31, 2020, that a Wuhan lab leak was plausible and possibly responsible for the pandemic.”
Hannity added, “If you brought the question up you are a conspiracy theorist. You’re talking about debunked conspiracy theories. Not so debunked anymore, are they? Emails now prove that Dr. Fauci knew that everything was happening in the lab and he was showing great concern that, in fact, NIH money that he was in charge of was being used to do all of this.”
Fauci’s potential ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology continue to be followed by Hannity, and most notably Senator Rand Paul, in order to both uncover the virus’ origins and hold the right people accountable for an illness that led to 3.7 million deaths worldwide.
“Even today, Fauci is still urging Americans don’t be too accusatory of China because they’re working hard to get to the bottom of what really happened. It’s in their best interest to tell the truth. He has emails that he got saying that they were covering up the number of people that were killed and then, in fact, their travel ban prohibited people from leaving Wuhan province and traveling anywhere within China or going to Wuhan Province. You’ve got to be kidding,” said Hannity.
As our nation also looks to reopen, and get both its economy and people back on track, residents from every state, city, and county affected by Fauci’s mandates eagerly anticipate answers from the doctor, who has considered his email controversy to be a result of out of context analysis.
“The only trouble is they are really ripe to be taken out of context where someone can snip out a sentence in an email without showing the other emails and say, ‘based on an email from Dr. Fauci, he said such-and-such,’ where you don’t really have the full context,” said Fauci in an interview with Newsnation.
