Dr. Fauci FINALLY Faces The Music!

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

A set of emails leaked by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) provide fresh insight into the causes of the COVID-19 outbreak. Sen. Paul made the aforementioned emails publicly available on Tuesday. They contain exchanges between important NIH officials and EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit organization that does research on global health.

The emails describe mapping the genomes of over 700 coronaviruses and a treasure mine of 15,000 samples from Wuhan. But Dr. Fauci never made these conversations publicly known. These exchanges suggest that David Morens, a senior advisor to Dr. Fauci, may be trying to use his personal email for private correspondence instead of going through the proper procedures.

A subpoena was sent out for Dr. Morens on Tuesday. The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic seeks to determine if Morens’ attempt to circumvent the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which guarantees public access to government data, was accomplished by using his personal email account.

The House subcommittee chairman, Brad Wenstrup (R-OH), issued the subpoena for records pertaining to the genesis of COVID-19 from his personal email. Later this year, Morens—who is being accused by whistleblowers of avoiding transparency by using private email—will also give a public testimony. Morens is accused of providing Dr. Peter Daszak with access to private material and insights into internal conversations at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in emails that were made public by EcoHealth Alliance.

 

“Tony is now fully aware I think and is I am told involved in some sort of damage control,” Morens said in an email that discussed Fauci’s role in handling the repercussions from a canceled EcoHealth Alliance grant. In a second, Dr. Daszak chooses to interact with you through a non-official method, saying, “David, we’ll be in contact with you via Gmail going forward,” and he even makes the concerning comment, “we have 15,000 samples at Wuhan freezers.”

Senator Rand Paul has expressed his doubts and the demand for answers in a public manner. Paul stated, “Recently uncovered emails raise troubling questions about what Dr. Fauci and others at NIH knew about the origins of the pandemic and suggest a cover-up.” After the possible risks connected to NIH-funded studies were made public, he accused Fauci of being “involved in some sort of damage control.”

 

Notable people, such as Elon Musk, commented on this. The controversy draws on long-running discussions over “gain-of-function” research and whether programs financed by the National Institutes of Health may have unintentionally contributed to the start of the epidemic.

“This is crazy,” Musk wrote. “Say what!?”

 

A series of emails that Dr. Morens allegedly used to conceal COVID-19 information were made public by the Select Subcommittee in June 2023. In the emails, he claimed he would “delete anything I don’t want to see in the New York Times” and that he preferred to use Gmail to dodge FOIA requests.

After that, Morens was fired by the National Institutes of Health and put on administrative leave after the subcommittee’s letter revealed that he may have broken federal records rules.

Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) issued a subpoena for NIH records pertaining to Morens’s activities in October 2023. Congress and the general public were not informed of the results of an internal probe by NIH. In an interview from November 2023, Dr. Peter Daszak, President of EcoHealth Alliance, referred to Morens as a “mentor.” In December 2023, the Department of Health and Human Services stepped in to stop Morens from talking about COVID-19 origins at a scheduled interview.

When Morens did eventually show up for a transcripted interview in January 2024, Wenstrup promised to get hold of Morens’ private email address. Later, a summary of the interview was released. The Subcommittee released evidence in April of this year from whistleblowers that further implicated Morens in willfully breaking transparency laws to obstruct conversations regarding the origins of COVID-19.
