Gordon Chang and Trish Discuss the Origins of the Coronavirus

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Recent weeks, we have learned what you and I, I think we're talking about back in January of 2020, which was the Wuhan lab theory. We had certainly I think both heard from various sources that it was quite possible that the coronavirus originated in a lab in Wuhan. That theory that discussion as you well know, Gordon was shut down. Aggressively shut down and now it seems doctor Anthony Fauci may have been at the forefront of helping to shut that discussion down by commissioning a scientific study, which he basically was able to take a red pen to. Doctor Redfield, head of the CDC, was cut out of conversations because he felt it was possible it may have come from a Wuhan lab and I think he said the most devastating thing to him was when the Baltimore sun called him a racist because he suggested it might come from Wuhan. We know what we all went through. Why do you think that was? Why do you think there was such an aggressive attempt to say no, there's no way it came from the Wuhan institute of virology? My theory is that Doctor Fauci was trying to protect himself. So if we go back to 2014, the Obama administration imposed a moratorium on the federal funding of gain of function research in the United States. So what did Fauci do? He outsourced gain of function funding to a biological weapons lab in China, the Wuhan institute of virology. And he did that through the New York based echo health alliance. So echo health alliance with NIH money was actually funding gain of function on coronaviruses. So I think Fauci is a little bit concerned that the Chinese took what they learned from his funding and they were applying it and eventually ended up creating SARS CoV-2, the pathogen causing COVID-19.
