Anthony Fauci and NIH Director Francis Collins were informed that the natural origins of the virus were "highly unlikely."
Newly released US Gov't e-mails show internal beliefs that SARS-CoV-2 was engineered.
Then Fauci and Collins made sure to shut down that debate.
We write to request a transcribed interview of Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director, U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Excerpts of emails we are making public today (see enclosed Appendix I) reveal that Dr. Fauci was warned of two things: (1) the potential that COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan Institute Virology (WIV) and (2) the possibility that the virus was intentionally genetically manipulated. It is imperative we investigate if this information was conveyed to the rest of the government and whether this information would have changed the U.S. response to the pandemic.
Despite Dr. Fauci claiming otherwise on multiple occasions, he was, in fact, aware of the monetary relationship between NIAID, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), EcoHealth Alliance Inc. (EcoHealth), and the WIV by January 27, 2020.1 Dr. Fauci also knew that NIAID worked with EcoHealth to craft a grant policy to sidestep the gain-of-function moratorium at the time.2 This new policy, designed by EcoHealth and agreed to by NIAID, allowed EcoHealth to complete dangerous experiments on novel bat coronaviruses—with very little oversight—that would have otherwise been blocked by the moratorium.3 In January 2020, Dr. Fauci was also aware that EcoHealth was not in compliance with the terms of its grant that funded the WIV.4 EcoHealth was required to submit an annual progress report to NIAID by September 30, 2019, and had not yet done so.5 The Committee subsequently learned that EcoHealth failed to submit these reports presumably to hide a gain-of-function experiment conducted on infectious and potentially lethal novel bat coronaviruses.6
