On April 17th, 2020, Anthony Fauci stood at the White House podium and dismissed the idea that COVID-19 was made in a lab, citing a study done by “a group of highly-qualified evolutionary virologists.”

Even in light of growing evidence that would prove otherwise, Dr. Fauci continued to insist that the virus that killed millions of people around the globe emerged from nature, saying that it “could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated.”

Almost three years later, we now know who commissioned the paper he regularly cited: none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci himself.  According to the emails released by the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, Dr. Fauci encouraged other scientists to skew data and ultimately approved a paper titled, “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2,” which he then used in order to claim that the virus originated from nature.

While the Energy Department and FBI say that the virus most likely came from a Chinese lab in Wuhan, he continues to deny the truth.  This begs the question: why was Dr. Fauci so determined to give the communist China a pass?

That is why the House today passed a bill to declassify all information relating to the origin of COVID-19 to the public.  American people deserve to know how the virus emerged and why Dr. Fauci tried persistently to hide it from us.  I will continue to demand transparency from the Biden Administration and hold Anthony Fauci accountable.
