To borrow a phrase popularized by millennials, Sen. Rand Paul has found “the receipts” apparently proving that Dr. Fauci lied about the NIH financing “gain of function” research for bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institue of Virology.
While there’s apparently room for interpretation, the NIH’s own experts – whom Dr. Fauci said earlier had unanimously rejected the idea that this constituted ‘gain of function’ research – actually agreed that the opposite was the case.
It’s just a reminder that Dr. Fauci and other senior public health officials are prioritizing the protection of “the narrative” over “the science”.
As for Dr. Fauci’s insistence that a slew of scientists sided with his view that the research to which Paul is referring didn’t constitute “gain of function”, Jack Posobiec raises an interesting point.
