(Presidentialwire.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci has “abused his authority, science, and taxpayers” during his time as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, according to the watchdog group White Coat Waste Project (WCW), which exposed the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan lab (NIAID).
Elon Musk, the founder of Twitter, called for the prosecution of Fauci, and WCW responded by stating that Musk was siding with the growing majority of Democrats and Republicans across the US, the FBI, and scientists who believe that taxpayer-funded animal experiments in Wuhan caused the COVID pandemic.
For years, WCW has watched as Anthony Fauci has abused his authority, science, and taxpayers — and even lied to Congress — to cover up his role in recklessly funding dangerous coronavirus experiments on animals at a lab run by the Chinese Communist Party, according to Tristan Daedalus, WCW’s director of government affairs. He noted that WCW was the first organization to expose NIH’s wasteful spending on gain-of-function animal experiments.
Daedalus said since early last year, WCW polls found that 75% of taxpayers want the lab leak investigated and for subpoenas to be issued, and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have pledged to look into COVID’s origins finally.
To prevent another pandemic, Daedalus concluded that Congress can hopefully learn the truth about how the pandemic began and hold Fauci and other officials accountable for “a cover-up that has kept the world from knowing.”
Musk made headlines over the weekend when he posted on social media, “My pronouns are “Prosecute/Fauci,” sparking WCW’s response.
Fauci has engaged in heated debates with lawmakers over the validity of the gain-of-function research carried out in Wuhan, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). Fauci misrepresented that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) supported such research, although the NIH directly contradicted Fauci by admitting in a letter that it did.
The NIH quietly removed its webpage’s section on gain-of-function. The NIH grant, which was given to EcoHealth Alliance and subsequently sub-awarded to the Wuhan lab, funded a study in 2018 and 2019 that investigated “whether spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor.”
In a deposition, NIH Director Anthony Fauci repeatedly used the phrase “misleading terminology” to avoid discussing the reality of the research.
