By Breitbart. Newly released U.S. government documents show that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) provided funding for the gain-of-function research conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) that created novel coronaviruses with the ability to infect humans, and one previously undisclosed SARS-related coronavirus engineered at the Wuhan lab was reportedly demonstrated to be more pathogenic to humans than the virus from which it was originally constructed.
The 900 pages of documents – obtained by The Intercept through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit – prove that Fauci’s NIAID provided funding to EcoHealth Alliance, which in turn funded the controversial gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab that created novel coronaviruses that could infect humans.
The Intercept’s report on the documents quotes Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers University, who said that the viruses the Wuhan lab constructed “were tested for their ability to infect mice that were engineered to display human type receptors on their cell.” And these viruses included both SARS-related and MERS-related coronaviruses.
Ebright later posted an eight-part thread on Twitter explaining in greater detail the document’s revelations concerning the “enhanced pathogenicity” of one of the “novel, laboratory-generated SARS-related coronaviruses” created by the Wuhan lab. He noted that this particular Wuhan lab-generated SARS-related coronavirus had not been “previously disclosed publicly” and that it was found to be “more pathogenic” to humans than “the starting virus from which it was constructed.” (Read more from “Expert: Documents Show Fauci-Funded Wuhan Lab Created Novel Coronavirus With ‘Enhanced Pathogenicity’ for Humans” HERE)
Rep. Gallagher Demands Fauci Resign, Saying He ‘Lied to the American People’ About Wuhan Lab
By Fox News. Rep. Mike Gallagher is calling on Dr. Anthony Fauci to resign, arguing newly released documents show the nation’s top infectious disease expert lied about U.S. support for gain-of-function research.
“On May 12, I argued that Dr. Fauci had not been forthcoming about the U.S. government’s support for gain-of-function research at the WIV. These documents are a smoking gun that indicate he not only failed to be forthcoming, but that he also lied to the American people about his organization’s support for this risky research,” the Wisconsin Republican said in a statement Wednesday.
“Thanks to grant reports written by Peter Daszak, we now know that U.S. taxpayer dollars supported research that made a virus at the WIV stronger than the original, naturally-occurring virus. This meets the very threshold for gain-of-function research that Dr. Fauci outlined in a letter to me in July,” the statement continued.
“He has repeatedly lied before Congress and the American people and should immediately resign. But his resignation is not enough. Congress must also conduct a thorough investigation into this research and the way in which these grants were issued to ensure no bureaucrat is able to hide behind lawyerly definitions and skirt regulations like this again.” (Read more from “Rep.

Rand Paul Vindicated, Fauci Reported to DOJ for Lying
By Biz Pac Review. Senator Rand Paul once again took aim at Dr. Anthony Fauci after a bombshell report that the career bureaucrat was instrumental in the funding of dangerous experimental research at the Chinese lab that many believe was the source of COVID-19.
The Kentucky Republican took to social media and in an appearance on Fox News to double down on Fauci after release of the report, renewing a call for the Justice Department to launch an investigation over the truth of Fauci’s congressional testimony.
The report was based on 900 pages of documents that were pried loose in a FOIA lawsuit by The Intercept that show the National Institutes of Health, which Fauci has headed up since Ronald Reagan’s first term in office, provided money for the gain-of-function research on viruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology through grants to the EcoHealth Alliance, which he has denied. . .
Surprise surprise – Fauci lied again
And I was right about his agency funding novel Coronavirus research at Wuhan.

Senator Paul also announced that he has asked the Justice Department to review Fauci’s testimony to determine whether he lied to Congress, a suggestion that he has previously made.
I have already asked the DOJ to review Fauci’s testimony for lying to Congress. This report should make it abundantly clear that he needs to be held accountable.
