Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticized Dr. Fauci for an absence of transparency on the USA’ funding of gain-of-function analysis Wednesday on “Fox Information Primetime.”
MIKE POMPEO: This was NIH funding. It went to the Wuhan laboratory. The Wuhan laboratory was engaged in gain-of-function analysis. This a lot is crystal clear. And since I’ve left, we had an investigation occurring, making an attempt to doc whether or not not solely whether or not it got here from the laboratory, but additionally importantly whether or not there was army involvement on this. This was additionally a bio-weapons laboratory the place there was army work happening. We got here in, they shut it down, then they despatched it over to the intelligence neighborhood.
They’ve proven little interest in discovering out what occurred and importantly, how we stop one thing like this from taking place once more. I do not perceive how Dr. Fauci can declare that the NIH did not present assets to 1 Wuhan that went for gain-of-function analysis. It sounds to me like he’s both equivocating or worse, mendacity.
