Anthony Fauci’s Lies vs Rep. Fortenberry’s Lies – Guess Who Is Being Prosecuted

If there is any doubt that “good government” laws exist exclusively as weapons to punish conservatives, whereas our entrenched deep state ruling class is immune from the same laws, consider the cases of Jeff Fortenberry and Anthony Fauci.


US Congressman Jeff Fortenberry, a Republican from Nebraska, is alleged to have received $30,000 in illegal campaign contributions, and subsequently lying when questioned by the FBI about it. He is under felony indictment from the Department of Justice and faces potential jail time.

DOJ says that Fortenberry did not file an amended report with the FEC to reflect the improper donations, nor did he return the money, and instead covered his tracks. He lied to the FBI during a March 2019 interview, according to the indictment, during which he told authorities that he was unaware of Baaklini ever making illegal contributions and of any foreign nationals' contributions to his campaign.


In testimony before Congress this past July,
Senator Rand Paul challenged Anthony Fauci to come clean about the NIH providing funding to the Wuhan lab for gain of function research on coronaviruses (e.g genetically modifying the virus to increase its transmissibility.)

"On May 11, you stated that NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology," Paul said. He [Rand Paul] claimed that gain-of-function research -- which could, in theory, enhance the transmissibility of a virus -- was performed in the lab and referred to an academic paper by a Chinese scientist, which he then asked to be entered into the record and for a copy to be given to Fauci.

"Dr. Fauci, knowing that it is a crime to lie to Congress, do you wish to retract your statement of May 11, where you claimed at the NIH never funded gain-of-function research and move on?" Paul said, repeating his unsupported accusation.

"I have never lied before the Congress, and I do not retract that statement," Fauci said when pressed by Paul on previous testimony from the doctor that the U.S. did not fund gain of function research in Wuhan. "You do not know what you are talking about quite frankly, and I want to say that officially."

Fauci lied.

This past week, officials with the National Institute of Health officially confirmed that NIH funded gain of function research at the Wuhan lab.

The National Institutes of Health is now admitting to funding gain-of-function research on bats infected with coronaviruses at a lab in Wuhan, China despite repeated denials from Dr. Anthony Fauci that U.S. tax dollars were used on the funding.

Anthony Fauci lied under oath about providing US tax dollars for gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the same lab from which it now seems likely that Covid-19 originated. Over 700,000 US deaths have been blamed on Covid. Fauci lied, people died.

Fauci’s perjury about his complicity in funding the Wuhan lab is a felony. But he’ll never be prosecuted. Meanwhile, Jeff Fortenberry is facing jail time. By the way, no Democrat would ever be indicted for what Fortenberry is alleged to have done. No Democrat would even be investigated for what Fortenberry is alleged to have done.

Governmental ethics laws that are enforced against only one side of the political divide are not laws at all – they’re weapons.
