NIH Contradicts Fauci, Admits Funding Gain-of-Function Research at the Wuhan Lab

Molecular biologist Richard Ebright posted a letter from the National Institute of Health confirming that they did in fact fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.

At Breitbart:

Fauci testified to Senators at a hearing in May that the NIH "has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology."

However, the NIH's October 20 letter to House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer (R-KY) showed that the NIH grant, which was awarded to EcoHealth Alliance and then sub-awarded to the Wuhan lab, funded a research project during 2018 and 2019 that tested "if spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model."

The letter added: "In this limited experiment, laboratory mice infected with the SHC014 WIV1 bat coronavirus became sicker than those infected with the WIV1 bat coronavirus."

According to the Department of Health and Human Services, "gain-of-function" research is research that improves the ability of a pathogen to cause disease.

Ebright tweeted that in the letter, the NIH "corrects untruthful assertions by NIH Director Collins and NIAID Director Fauci that NIH had not funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan."

Remember, NIH funded EcoHealth Alliance, which in turn granted the Wuhan lab a subaward or subgrant. This already smells like "grant laundering" to me.

But this letter confirms that EcoHealth used NIH money to fund gain-of-function research -- and that Fauci knew it. NIH's records say as much.

Richard H. Ebright @R_H_Ebright

NIH corrects untruthful assertions by NIH Director Collins and NIAID Director Fauci that NIH had not funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan.

NIH states that EcoHealth Alliance violated Terms and Conditions of NIH grant AI110964.

I assume that is the ruse Fauci uses to claim that we didn't fund gain-of-function -- that there were terms and conditions forbidding this sort of research, attached to the grant.

But Fauci has repeatedly claimed that what EcoHealth funded was not gain-of-function, period.

@R_H_Ebright

The NIH received the relevant documents in 2018 and reviewed the documents in 2020 and again in 2021.

The NIH--specifically, Collins, Fauci, and Tabak--lied to Congress, lied to the press, and lied to the public. Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.

Fauci knew.

He should be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

More from Breitbart: "Will there be consequences?"
