Via New York Post:
” New emails uncovered by House Republicans probing the COVID-19 pandemic reveal the deceptive nature of Dr. Anthony Fauci.
They show he “prompted” or commissioned — and had final approval on — a scientific paper written specifically in February 2020 to disprove the theory that the virus leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China.
Eight weeks later, Fauci stood at a White House press conference alongside President Donald Trump and cited that paper as evidence that the lab leak theory was implausible while pretending it had nothing to do with him and he did not know the authors.”
Via the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic:
“New evidence released by the Select Subcommittee today suggests that Dr. Fauci ‘prompted’ the drafting of a publication that would ‘disprove’ the lab leak theory, the authors of this paper skewed available evidence to achieve that goal and Dr. Jeremy Farrar went uncredited despite significant involvement.
The evidence available to the Select Subcommittee suggests that Dr. Anthony Fauci ‘prompted’ Dr. Kristian Andersen, Professor, Scripps Research (Scripps), to write Proximal Origin and that the goal was to ‘disprove’ any lab leak theory.”
It should be obvious that this is not how scientific research is conducted. Following the scientific method, you first look for evidence and then form your conclusion based on it. Fauci, here, did the opposite: he formed his conclusion then used his well-placed tentacles in the scientific community – which he controls by controlling the funding they receive to conduct their research – to manipulate his subordinates into producing evidence to support his pre-conceived conclusion.
This is a classic case of not “Respecting the Science™,” as we the peasants have been condescendingly admonished to do since 2020.
