According to a New York Post report, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director and the face of COVID-19 Dr. Anthony Fauci was “secretly” escorted into CIA headquarters to influence its COVID-19 origins investigation.
Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH), head of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, shared the “concerning information” this week in a letter to the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services.
“The information provided suggests that Dr. Fauci was escorted into Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Headquarters — without a record of entry — and participated in the analysis to ‘influence’ the Agency’s review,” Wenstrup said. “Our goal is to ensure the scientific investigative process regarding the origins of COVID-19 was fair, impartial, and free of alternative influence.”
“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 argues, demanding information related to the “movements of Dr. Fauci throughout the pandemic.”
“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 adds.
From The New York Post:
The new allegations come after a senior-level CIA officer-turned-whistleblower alleged to Congress earlier this month that the intelligence agency offered to pay off six analysts in order to bury their findings that COVID-19 most likely leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China.
The analysts, who found SARS-CoV-2 likely originated in a Wuhan lab, were allegedly asked to report that the virus jumped from animals to humans, according to Wenstrup and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mike Turner (R-Ohio).
A seventh analyst, the most senior, was the lone member of the team to believe COVID-19 originated through zoonosis, according to the lawmakers.
