Fauci failed to warn Trump White House about Gain-of-Function research ban being lifted
Ethan Huff and Robert Gorter, MD, PhD.
When the ban on the controversial gain of function research was lifted back in 2017, Anthony Fauci of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) failed to notify senior White House officials in the Trump administration, new reports reveal.
Instead of doing the job he is paid to do by American taxpayers, Fauci kept quiet about the change, which provided cover for Fauci to continue funneling money to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China, where the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is believed to have originated.
Since Fauci has been talking about the “benefits” of gain of function research since at least 2012, the implication is that it has been going on all throughout this time, including when it was illegal during the Barack Obama years. A way around this was to continue the Gain-of-Function research offshore: meaning in other countries, including mainland China.
So, even if the ban was lifted in 2017, the gain of function research that was taking place prior was still illegal. This means that Fauci still needs to be held fully accountable for his involvement in sending American taxpayer dollars to China to create the Wuhan Flu.
In 2012, Fauci admitted that there was strong potential for “bioterrorism” to emerge from gain-of-function research. He admitted that a pandemic could emerge, but that it would be worth the risk because gain-of-function research is important to him.
An investigation by The Weekend Australian has also confirmed Dr. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, did not alert senior White House officials before lifting the ban on Gain-of-Function research in 2017.
Markson, who is the author of the upcoming book “What Really Happened In Wuhan,” also highlighted previously unreported remarks from Fauci in 2012 where Fauci argued that the benefits of doing gain-of-function research outweighed the risk that it could spark a pandemic. Gain-of-Function research tries to create more infectious strains of diseases before they arise in nature in an effort to defend against them and to develop means of biological warfare.
