Back in April, we did a story on Rudy Giuliani and his outrage over Fauci and the Wuhan lab.
Back then, if you even suggested that the Wuhan lab leaked the virus, you’d get chastised by the media or booted off social media.
Of course, today, that’s all changed suddenly, and now Fauci is in the hot seat.
But those of us on the right have known what Fauci and Wuhan lab did for a long time, and yet, the smug media refused to listen to us.
Well, I dug up that article we did, because what Rudy talked about was bone-chilling.
Take a look:
It’s been recently revealed that the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is suspected to have released COVID-19, has received nearly $4 million in U.S. grants:
The Chinese laboratory at the center of scrutiny over a potential coronavirus leak has been using U.S. government money to carry out research on bats from the caves which scientists believe are the original source of the deadly outbreak.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology undertook coronavirus experiments on mammals captured more than 1,000 miles away in Yunnan which were funded by a $3.7 million grant from the US government.
Sequencing of the COVID-19 genome has traced it back to bats found in Yunnan caves but it was first thought to have transferred to humans at an animal market in Wuhan.
The revelation that the Wuhan Institute was experimenting on bats from the area already known to be the source of COVID-19 – and doing so with American money – has sparked further fears that the lab, and not the market, is the original outbreak source. [Daily Mail]
This is a shocking realization, one that should have every taxpaying American outraged.
But no one is more enraged than Rudy Giuliani, who just put Dr. Anthony Fauci on blast for his possible involvement in the multi-million dollar grants to the Wuhan lab.
“Back in 2014, the Obama administration prohibited the U.S. from giving money to any laboratory, including in the U.S., that was fooling around with these viruses. Prohibited! Despite that, Dr. Fauci gave $3.7 million to the Wuhan laboratory — even after the State Department issued reports about how unsafe that laboratory was, and how suspicious they were in the way they were developing a virus that could be transmitted to humans,” he claimed.
He added, “We never pulled that money. Something here is going on, John. I don’t want to make any accusations. But there was more knowledge about what was going on in China with our scientific people than they disclosed to us when this first came out. Just think of it: If this laboratory turns out to be the place where the virus came from, then we paid for it. We paid for the damn virus that’s killing us.”
While Giuliani placed the blame on Fauci, who has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984, it is not clear what oversight he had in the funding decisions. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases did award $3.7 million in grants to EcoHealth Alliance to study the “risk of future coronavirus (CoV) emergence from wildlife using in-depth field investigations across the human-wildlife interface in China” in wet markets, but not all of that funding went to the lab in Wuhan.

Good for Giuliani!
Thankfully now, people are actually looking into this.
But, will it be a serious investigation? That remains to be seen.
If it is, Fauci will be in some deep trouble.
