On his blog, Mercola.com, Dr. Joseph Mercola details the allegations by Paul Thacker, a former investor with the U.S. Senate, that Dr. Anthony Fauci lied to Congress, a federal offense that could land him in the slammer for five years. Mercola writes (abridged):
- Paul Thacker, a former investigator with the U.S. Senate, says Dr. Anthony Fauci lied to Congress when he claimed he’s never funded gain-of-function research. This is a federal offense punishable by up to five years in prison, provided the false statements are materially relevant and knowingly false
- July 20, 2021, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul — who has grilled Fauci about his research funding in two separate hearings in 2021 — announced he would ask the DOJ for a criminal referral, as he’s convinced Fauci made false statements to Congress
- One “smoking gun” is a research article written by Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) scientists. The paper acknowledges funding from the NIAID/NIH, and the research meets the Department of Health and Human Services’ definition of gain-of-function research
- According to the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity, “The term ‘gain-of-function’ is generally used to refer to changes resulting in the acquisition of new, or an enhancement of existing, biological phenotypes”
- In a June 2021 essay, professor Jeffrey Sachs, head of The Lancet’s commission tasked with investigating COVID’s origin, described how the NIAID has funded gain-of-function research at the WIV, stating it’s “common knowledge in the U.S. scientific community that NIH has … supported genetic recombinant research on SARS-like viruses that many scientists describe as GOFROC [gain-of-function research of concern].”
