Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin told War Room Dr. Fauci needs to provide answers about his involvement with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Rogin said Saturday the only way to move forward from the pandemic is to investigate its origins, including a real independent investigation in Wuhan.
“And then we’ve got to check out all the labs here,” he said. “Turn over some rocks that are going to make some people very uncomfortable.”
Dr. Fauci and the National Institutes of Health were responsible for using taxpayer dollars for gain of function research, to weaponize viruses to make them more contagious and more deadly.
“There’s no statue of limitations on 3 million deaths,” Rogin said. “Every one of those coffins comes with a lawyer.”
“We’re going to need to investigate the lab,” he said. “And that means asking some tough questions of Anthony Fauci, and i’m sure he doesn’t want to be asked those questions, but tough.”
Rogin said before we spend billions more on gain of function research, we must investigate whether this research to weaponize coronaviruses was the cause of the pandemic.
“In any major disaster the most obvious thing to do is to figure out how the disaster occured,” he said. “You can’t let the Russians investigate Chernobyl and take their word for it.”
“We’re going to have to look into the lab,” he said.
The author of Chaos Under Heaven: America, China, and the Battle for the 21st Century said the real reason Fauci, the NIH, and the medical establishment do not want a real investigation into Wuhan: it would implicate them.
“Those labs were working with American labs, labs funded with $200 million in taxpayer money,” he said. “All of the gain of function research that was being done.”
Rogin said Peter Daszak and Fauci are “scared to death” of the Wuhan lab theory “not because the lab theory implicates China.”
“It implicates us,” he said. “It’s about our work with the Chinese scientists funded by u.s taxpayers.”
