Dr. Fauci is Asked Point Blank “What Do You Think of Donald Trump?” — His Answer Just Says It All

    Dr. Anthony Fauci continued his farewell media tour on Thursday. Former Fox News host and notorious Trump hater Chris Wallace set Fauci up with a perfect opportunity to slam the former president. Watch:

    “What do you think of Donald Trump?” Wallace asked.

    “Well, you know, I had difficulty in that administration… I felt very uncomfortable about having to publicly get up at the White House press room and being put on the spot to directly disagree with the President,” he said. “And that’s how I evolved essentially, in the, you know, public enemy number one of the far-right, which I did not desire to be put in that position.”

    “You may be done with political life, but political life is not going to be done with you,” Wallace said. “What are you going to do if, in your view, you become a punching bag for Republican critics?”

    “Well, if I become a punching bag, I’m a punching bag,” Fauci replied. “But I am very happy to testify before any congressional oversight committee, I have nothing to hide, I have — I can explain and validate everything that I’ve done. So you know, it’s going to be inconvenient if they actually are out there, essentially threatening to make my life miserable. But it’s I mean, I’m going to do what I need to do, and that is cooperate fully, because we have nothing to hide at all.”

    Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed the accusation by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) that triggered him the most during a new sit-down interview with NBC’s Lester Holt. Watch:

    “You got angry at times in some of the congressional hearings when you were personally attack? Do you have any regrets about the way that you handled that?” Lester Holt asked.

    “I think 99.9 percent of the time, I have been my usual self, which is very calm and measured,” Fauci claimed. “The only time I really got upset was when Senator Paul totally inappropriately on national TV that was following that hearing, accused me of being responsible for the death of 5 million people.”

    “Now, with all due respect, I’m not going to take that from anybody, including a senator,” Fauci went on. “So that was the one time that I felt I got upset and probably should not have, but I think that’s the only time that I really did that. Because I — I don’t mind oversight at all. I think oversight is a productive part of the process. But when you start off by, you know, being accusatory based on no evidence whatsoever and making a slanderous comment that that has to go answered, you can’t let that go unanswered.”

    EcoHealth Alliance, the non-profit organization that was funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s NIAID, is directly tied to the gain-of-function research at the Wuhan laboratory, located close to the epicenter of the Covid pandemic’s origins. Andrew Huff, one of the co-founders of EcoHealth Alliance, recently came forward to ‘blow the whistle’ on how the United States essentially gave Communist China ‘bioweapons technology.’

    “Dr Andrew Huff, former vice president of EcoHealth Alliance, claims to have had a ringside seat to what he brands one of the greatest cover-ups in history – and the ‘biggest US intelligence failure since 9/11’,” the Sun Times reported on Saturday.

    “In his new book – The Truth About Wuhan – whistleblower Dr Huff claims the pandemic was the result of the US government’s funding of dangerous genetic engineering of coronaviruses in China,” the Times notes. “The epidemiologist said China’s gain-of-function experiments – carried out with shoddy biosecurity – led to a lab leak at the US-funded Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

    “EcoHealth Alliance and foreign laboratories did not have the adequate control measures in place for ensuring proper biosafety, biosecurity, and risk management, ultimately resulting in the lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” he said in his book, an exclusive pre-release copy of which was provided to The Sun Online.

    Dr. Huff worked at EcoHealth Alliance from 2014 to 2016 and served as vice president from 2015. He worked on the classified side of the research program as a U.S. government scientist. He revealed that EcoHealth Alliance taught the Wuhan lab the “best existing methods to engineer bat coronaviruses to attack other species.” He also claimed “China knew from day one that this was a genetically engineered agent.”

    “The US government is to blame for the transfer of dangerous biotechnology to the Chinese,” he said. “I was terrified by what I saw. We were just handing them bioweapon technology,” he added.

    The Sun Times report notes that former intelligence chiefs and diplomats have claimed that Covid leaking from the Wuhan lab is the “cover-up of the century.”

    Dr. Huff said: “Nobody should be surprised that the Chinese lied about the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 and then went to extraordinary lengths to make it appear as if the disease naturally emerged.”

    “The shocking part of all of this is how the United States government lied to all of us,” he added.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci is one of the government officials who lied to the American people about his ties to EcoHealth Alliance, and thus, to funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan laboratory.

    In October 2021, the National Institutes of Health quietly corrected the record regarding several misstatements made by Dr. Anthony Fauci regarding the NIH funding of gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The admission was noted by Board of Governors Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology Richard H. Ebright.

    “NIH corrects untruthful assertions by NIH Director Collins and NIAID Director Fauci that NIH had not funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan,” Professor Ebright notes. “NIH states that EcoHealth Alliance violated Terms and Conditions of NIH grant AI110964.”

    But Ebright points out that NIH knew about the documents in 2018 and reviewed them repeatedly.

    “The NIH received the relevant documents in 2018 and reviewed the documents in 2020 and again in 2021,” Ebright said. “The NIH–specifically, Collins, Fauci, and Tabak–lied to Congress, lied to the press, and lied to the public. Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.”

    Senator Rand Paul has vowed to hold Dr. Anthony Fauci accountable for his untruthful statements to the American people.
