Watch: Former CDC Director testifies on what Dr. Fauci did to him for supporting the lab-leak theory
We're now allowed to say that Covid likely leaked from a lab in Wuhan. But will we soon be permitted to acknowledge that Dr. Fauci participated in a cover-up of the origins? Perhaps...
Earlier today, former CDC Director Robert Redfield testified before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic. He claimed that he was kept out of the loop by Fauci and other doctors because he disagreed on the origins of the virus. Specifically, he believed it leaked from a lab. Imagine that.

Redfield explained that he was on multiple calls with Fauci early on in the pandemic, and he emphasized the importance of exploring the lab leak theory aggressively. This was due to his belief that the virus could not have evolved naturally. He said, "I also expressed as a clinical virologist that I felt it was not scientifically plausible that this virus went from a bat to humans and became one of the most infectious viruses we have in humans."
"All viruses are not the same. So when you look at coronaviruses, for SARS and MERS, for example, when they entered the human species, which they did via an intermediate, they never learned how to go human-to-human. Even to this day, they don't know how to go human-to-human. So you can't equate Ebola with a coronavirus."
He also explained why he felt he was subsequently excluded from phone calls between Fauci and other top doctors: "It was told to me that they wanted a single narrative and that I obviously had a different point of view."
He was then asked about the paper, prompted by Fauci, that disputed research showing the virus had likely not evolved in nature.
A quick refresher: the Fauci emails revealed that, early on in the pandemic, a bunch of scientists told Fauci they found "the genome inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory." Three days later, the same scientists drafted a paper, prompted by Fauci, arguing precisely the opposite. That paper is titled "The Proximal Origin of SARS-Cov-2" and became the basis for controlling the narrative and debunking the lab-leak.
Of these events, Redfield said, "It's unfortunate that this whole approach that was taken...if you really want to be truthful, it's antithetical to science. Science has debate, and they squashed any debate."
And this is exactly what we've known all along. This is the only time in modern history I can think of where we were all forced to swallow one narrative about a viral outbreak, and dissenters were aggressively silenced. But luckily, they can only silence everyone for so long.
