FBI Investigated Fauci’s Grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology

The Federal Bureau of Investigation launched an inquiry into National Institutes of Health funding of bat research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Epoch Times reports. The FBI involvement, “adds to the international scrutiny on the Wuhan facility, which houses one of China’s highest-level biosecurity labs that has been considered a possible source of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

In an email obtained by Judicial Watch, an NIH investigation officer directs a message titled “Grant Questions—FBI inquiry” to FBI agent David Miller. Heavy redactions render the extent of the investigation unclear but the name of the attachment corresponds to the NIH grant for “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.” 

The head of that project was Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance, which received nearly $4 million from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci and former NIH director Francis Collins both lied about funding dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan facility, controlled by China’s Communist Party. In addition to American money, the WIV received a cargo of deadly pathogens, as Israeli microbiologist Dr. Dany Shoham showed in “China and Viruses: The Case of Dr. Xiangguo Qiu.” 

Dr. Qiu headed the Special Pathogens program at Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML)  in Winnipeg. Qiu has ties to four institutions linked to China’s military, including the Wuhan Institute of Virology. From 2017-2018 alone, Qiu made at least five trips to the Wuhan lab, the likely source of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

NIAID boss Fauci maintains that the virus arose naturally in the wild, which is speculation and not science. Fauci earned a medical degree in 1966 but his bio shows no advanced degrees in molecular biology or biochemistry. Kary Mullis, who earned a doctorate in biochemistry at UC Berkeley, and won a Nobel Prize for the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), contended that Fauci didn’t understand electronic microscopy or medicine, and “should not be in a position like he’s in.” But he is. 

Fauci boasts a budget of more than $6 billion and controls both public health policy and research funding. That concentration of power gives him leverage to bully others into supporting his natural origin theory. When CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield found evidence of a lab origin, he got death threats. If the FBI investigated, nothing has emerged.

In 2017, Fauci said there was “no doubt” that a president would get surprised by an infectious disease outbreak. He funded the WIV for gain-of-function research, which makes viruses more lethal and transmissible in order to study them. In early 2020, Fauci opposed President Trump’s ban on travel from China, and praised the Chinese regime for its response. So did the CDC’s Dr. Nancy Messonnier. 

In a series of telebriefings in early 2020, Messonnier announced the presence in America of a “novel coronavirus” from Wuhan that was going to spread far and wide. Messonnier faithfully echoed the China-compliant World Health Organization and told reporters China should be complimented. Praised as a “true hero” by new CDC boss Rochelle Walensky, Messonnier suddenly retired in May of 2021. 

Fauci backed the destructive lockdowns and restrictive policies that wrecked the American economy and caused untold misery. Fauci backed mandatory application of unproven vaccines right down to children, the group with the least risk of serious effects from infection. On the other hand, Dr. Fauci was silent when New York governor Andrew Cuomo sentenced thousands of seniors to their deaths by forcing infected patients back into nursing homes. 

The NIAID boss, the highest-paid person in the entire federal government, has been responsible for colossal failures but never held accountable. The FBI investigated his grants to the Wuhan lab, laundered through Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance, but isn’t telling the people what it found. That comes as no surprise, given FBI and Justice Department compliance in the Russia hoax. 

Fauci maintains and enforces the natural origin theory, which enables sudden announcements, backed by no independent, replicated scientific study, of variants and subvariants such as Delta, Omicron, BA.1, BA.2, and so on, up to BA.4 and BA.5. “It has a transmission advantage over the prior variants that were dominant,” Fauci explains, so we “absolutely” need to take it seriously. 

Transmissibility, embattled Americans might recall, was the achievement of the gain-of-function research Fauci funded at the Wuhan lab, where it could be conducted in secret, with no accountability.  

Anthony Fauci, a non-practicing physician who first does harm, has been a government bureaucrat for more than half a century. He has spent 38 years in a job he should never have had in the first place, according to Kary Mullis, one of America’s greatest biomedical scientists. In all that time, Fauci never once has had to face the voters.

Fauci has reversed himself many times but now claims “I represent science,” and that those who criticize him are attacking science. The NIAID boss now says the vaccines he recommended, “don’t protect overly well” against infection. So if embattled Americans considered Fauci a megalomaniac, and wonder why he wants to vaccinate children, it would be hard to blame them. 

Fauci, 81, plans no retirement until Joe Biden leaves office in 2025. For his part, Biden jokes that Fauci is the real president, and the Delaware Democrat has a point. Anthony Fauci is the embodiment of white coat supremacy, rule over the people by unelected medical bureaucrats. As long as he is able, this loathsome Lysenko figure will keep the people living in fear.
