It turns out lying to Congress is a crime — it’s called perjury — and Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Health is guilty. Very guilty.
In the words of former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows: “To call this a bombshell would be an understatement.”
After months – even years – of lying to the American people and to Congress, Dr. Fauci’s kill-shot has finally emerged. According to jaw-dropping documents posted by molecular biologist Richard Ebright, the National Institute of Health (NIH), Fauci’s headquarters, contradicted the doctor’s claim that he never sent taxpayer dollars to Communist China for the purpose of funding ‘gain-of-function’ research.
On Wednesday, Ebright posted a letter from the NIH showing that a grant did fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, contrary to what Dr. Anthony Fauci had testified to the Senate.
Fauci testified to Senators at a hearing in May that the NIH “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
This clip of @SenJohnKennedy questioning Dr. Fauci in May on ‘gain of function’ research is suddenly worth a re-watch.

Yikes. Those clips sure didn’t age well.
Fauci’s NIH sent a letter to the House Oversight Committee stating the health organization did in fact award a grant to EcoHealth Alliance and then sub-awarded to to the Wuhan lab. The grant funded a research project between 2018-2019 that tested if “spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model.”
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, “gain-of-function” research is research that improves the ability of a pathogen to cause disease.
Fauci lied directly to lawmakers.
Ebright tweeted that in the letter, the NIH “corrects untruthful assertions by NIH Director Collins and NIAID Director Fauci that NIH had not funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan.”
The NIH received the relevant documents in 2018 and reviewed the documents in 2020 and again in 2021.
The NIH–specifically, Collins, Fauci, and Tabak–lied to Congress, lied to the press, and lied to the public. Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.

And to top it off, Ebright exposed EcoHealth for violating additional layers of oversight pertaining to the grant, shielding their association with Communist China.
The NIH letter states:
These oversight measures would prompt a secondary review to determine whether the research aims should be re-evaluated or new biosafety measures should be enacted.
EcoHealth failed to report this finding right away, as was required by the terms of the grant.
It is still unknown whether the coronaviruses studied under the grant were eventually became SARS-CoV-2, now commonly referred to as the “coronavirus” or “COVID-19.”
Sen. Rand Paul, in perhaps the biggest ‘I told you so’ moment of the century, said just that after news of the letter broke:

Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton was endlessly mocked by the Left for even suggesting or bolstering Trump’s original lab leak theory. He’s been proven correct.
He should be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. https://t.co/GboEpfwSNq

Mark Meadows, Trump’s former chief of staff, says “the obvious is confirmed.”
To call this a bombshell is an understatement.
Dr. Fauci and others claimed under oath the NIH didn’t fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Lab. Now the obvious is confirmed: they did. https://t.co/PoUyIJCInu

Dr. Fauci has yet to respond to this bombshell report and not a single mainstream media outlet has reported on it. Like every other Fauci story, this will likely be buried in an attempt to shield the American public from the truth.
The United States is entering into a danger zone not seen since the former Soviet Union.
