Mar 5, 2023 | Political News

On Sunday, the GOP-led Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, released a memo citing evidence that showed Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, “prompted the drafting of ‘Proximal Origins' to disprove the lab leak theory.”

According to the Congressional memo, “On February 1, 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Francis Collins, and at least eleven other scientists convened a conference call to discuss COVID-19. It was on this conference call that Drs. Fauci and Collins were first warned that COVID-19 may have leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China and, further, may have been intentionally genetically manipulated.” The Proximal Origin document was first drafted days later on February 4 and “The evidence available to the Select Subcommittee suggests that Dr. Anthony Fauci ‘prompted' Dr. Kristian Andersen, Professor, Scripps Research (Scripps), to write Proximal Origin and that the goal was to ‘disprove' any lab leak theory.”
