Report: Dr. Fauci ‘Played a Role’ in the CIA’s Cover-up of COVID-19 Lab-Leak Origins

During the early days of the pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci was secretly “escorted” to CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., where he worked to “influence” the agency’s investigation into the origins of COVID-19, according to new information gathered by the Republican-led Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), the chairman of the Coronavirus Committee, revealed this “concerning information” in a letter to Inspector General Christi Grimm of the ​​Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Tuesday. According to Wenstrup,  Fauci’s off-the-books visit suggests he “played a role” in the CIA’s sham review into the origins of COVID-19. Fauci at the time was the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the the White House chief medical adviser under then-President Donald Trump.

Earlier this month, a “highly credible whistleblower” from the CIA came forward alleging that the Agency bribed six of its scientific analysts with significant financial incentives to change their initial conclusion that COVID-19 sprung from a lab leak in Wuhan, China, to the zoonosis hypothesis.

The “multi-decade, senior-level, current Agency officer” told the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) and the Select Coronavirus Committee that the CIA had initially assigned seven “multi-disciplinary and experienced” officers with “significant scientific expertise” to a COVID Discovery Team to investigate the origins of COVID-19.

The whistleblower told House investigators that at the end of its review, six of the seven members of the Team had concluded that “the intelligence and science were sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that COVID-19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.”

The seventh, most senior member of the Team, however, argued that COVID-19 originated naturally through zoonosis (an animal-to-human spillover event). The whistleblower told lawmakers that the other six members of the team were ultimately given “a significant monetary incentive to change their position.”

“The American people deserve the truth — to know the origins of the virus and whether there was a concerted effort by public health authorities to suppress the lab leak theory for political or national security purposes,” Wenstrup wrote. “Accordingly, information regarding specific movements of Dr. Fauci throughout the pandemic is reasonable and hardly intrusive, especially considering he is no longer employed by the federal government, he is no longer a protectee of the Inspector General, and we are not requesting any information regarding his current movements.”

Wenstrup requested documents and communications between HHS, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and the US Marshals Service regarding Fauci’s admittance or entry into any CIA owned, operated, or occupied buildings.

“In addition to these documents, we request you make [HHS] Special Agent Brett Rowland available for a voluntary transcribed interview at a date to be determined,” Wenstrup added.

U.S. intelligence agencies were ultimately “unable to determine the precise origin of the COVID-19 pandemic,” but leaned toward the assessment that “SARS-CoV-2 was not genetically engineered,” the New York Post reported.

The US intelligence community declassified its 10-page report on COVID origins in June, which found “biosafety concerns” and “genetic engineering” taking place at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, but most of its “agencies assess that SARS-CoV-2 was not genetically engineered.”

The CIA and one other intelligence agency “remain unable to determine the precise origin of the COVID-19 pandemic, as both hypotheses rely on significant assumptions or face challenges with conflicting reporting,” it says.

Inventor of mRNA vaccine technology Dr. Robert Malone is calling for a special prosecutor to investigate Fauci’s alleged crimes.

“Fauci impeded a CIA investigation or helped in a cover-up because of the crimes he committed,” Malone wrote on X.

That is clear because the CIA report generated about the origins of the virus claimed it was not man-made—that the virus jumped from animals to humans naturally in the wild. This is false. Most likely, Fauci knew and lied to them. Either that, or the CIA lied and Fauci assisting the CIA in generating that lie. Either way, Fauci must be prosecuted. There must by an independent inquiry with a special prosecutor – separate from the DOJ. Congress must authorize this now and continue on with this own investigations. It is time for a prosecutor to step in, so charges can be filed.

Back in January, Malone called for an international tribunal to “investigate and prosecute” all those responsible for the millions of deaths caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus—most notably Fauci, and Eco-Health Alliance president Peter Daszak.

“Gain-of-function” SARS-CoV virus manipulation caused the deaths of millions of people. Vast amounts of evidence suggest that Eco Health and NIAID caused those deaths,” Malone  tweeted at the time.
