Dr. Anthony Fauci thought he could slink back into private life this December. But he may just have to stand trial after this.
That’s because Dr. Fauci just got caught after scientists manufactured this lethal super disease.
The good doctor Fauci has been embroiled in scandal since the onset of the COVID pandemic.
As head of the NIAID, Dr. Fauci came under fire as some argue he helped fund “gain of function” research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which was stationed in the same city COVID proliferated.
Many have called for his investigation, and with Republicans poised to retake Congress, that could become a reality.
That’s why Fauci has decided to step down from his post this December.
But his latest action could put him right back on the witness stand.
The initial strain of COVID that escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was combined with the spike protein from the Omicron variation by researchers at Boston University to produce a new strain with an 80% death rate.
Fox News states:
Researchers at Boston University say they have developed a new COVID strain that has an 80% kill rate following a series of similar experiments first thought to have started the global pandemic that began in China.
The variant, a combination of Omicron and the original virus in Wuhan, killed 80% of the mice infected with it, the university said. When mice were only exposed to Omicron, they experienced mild symptoms.
The research was conducted by a team of scientists from Florida and Boston at the school’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories.
This crazy experiment was supported in part by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is led by Dr. Anthony Fauci.
The NIAID, however, claimed that it learned about the Boston University researchers’ creation of a deadly epidemic through the media.
“But it has become apparent that the research team did not clear the work with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which was one of the funders of the project. The agency indicated it is going to be looking for some answers as to why it first learned of the work through media reports,” Stat reported.
Boston University was criticized by chemistry and chemical biology professor Richard Ebright for falsely saying that they did not do contentious gain of function research on the coronavirus.
The claims in BU's public statement that: "this research is not gain-of-function research," "it did not..make it more dangerous," and "this research made the virus replicate less dangerous [sic]" are demonstrably false and should be deeply embarrassing.

After funding gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Fauci’s agency funded gain of function research that resulted in a killer version of COVID. Should Republicans take control of Congress, this funding will become a major flashpoint as a GOP majority provides oversight and scrutiny over the causes of the COVID pandemic.
