There is a simple reason for Fauci’s reluctance to consider a lab leak hypothesis–if it came from the Wuhan Institute for Virology, the US government likely funded the research. Obviously nobody wants that on their record, and Fauci has quite the pension to protect, as well as an unearned reputation as The Science™.
… The word went out very quickly that the lab leak hypothesis was off the table. It simply had to be, because there indeed was funding flowing from the NIH to Wuhan through the EcoHealthAlliance, and gain of function research was being done there.
So why now the obvious panic?” It is this: when Republicans get control they also gain enormous investigatory power. And as the Establishment™ Republicans have been flushed out of the Party the new breed are much less inclined to cover up the dirty laundry than those they are replacing.
Yes, I strongly suspect that the whole truth is NOT coming out, even now. Hopefully soon. The whole truth would almost for sure lay bare evil doings by Fauci and many others.
And THAT is a big reason why there is such a Democrat push for voter fraud! It is CYA. Because once there are honest investigations by honest brokers, these folks are hosed. Connect the dots, here. It isn’t really much of a leap at all.
The real issue in these elections is NOT who gets positions and who doesn’t. It is who gets a butt-load of money and who goes to prison!
