It is hard enough to try and make sense of all the information that has been disseminated by health officials about the COVID 19 pandemic without having to worry about the people in authority being dishonest.
Unfortunately, that is just the position we are in now with Dr. Fauci’s untrue statement to Congress that he did not know why former President Trump cancelled a $370,000 grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This was proven to be a false statement and it was revealed in a book, “The Nightmare Scenario Inside the Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic that Changed History”, written by Washington Post correspondents. Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta.
The book reveals quotes from Fauci that he knew that Trump’s reason for cutting the taxpayer funding from the lab was because of their safety record he believed that the virus was released by that lab. Fauci’s fabrications did not go unnoticed by others. The Republican representative of Georgia, Buddy Carter, told Fox news, “Dr. Fauci is so obsessed with maintaining his own relevance and downplaying Trump’s role in combating this crisis that he has once again been caught lying.”
Representative Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma called the situation “very concerning” and added, “It goes to show how important it is to have full investigations into the origin of COVID 19.” Dr. Fauci initially did not respond to Fox news request for comment It was not until Bill Maher made accusations against Facebook and Google for downplaying information about the virus and removing any posts suggesting the virus was manmade and released purposefully.

Other Fauci Non-Truths
This is not the first time that Dr. Fauci has been caught in a lie.
The New York Post reported that when questioned by Senator Rand Paul, he stated that the National Institute of Health never funded dangerous research on bat viruses in the Chinese lab suspected of creating the coronavirus. A few hours later, Fauci admitted of a “minor collaboration” with Chinese scientists.
He also flip-flopped his position when asked if he believed the virus occurred naturally. It comes as no surprise that he is also in collusion with the World Health Organization who stated the virus may have been imported into China instead of its origin being the Wuhan lab.
With the importance of safety against the corona virus, it is important that we are able to trust that the information we are being given by health officials is the truth. Unfortunately, in the case of Dr. Fauci, he has proven that his statements need to be fact-checked at least until such time that he proves himself to be trustworthy.
