"Was Right About China Virus Coming From Wuhan Lab": Donald Trump

Labor and Pensions Committee hearing in Washington

'From my perspective, your comments are courageous, and coming from your trusted voice, will help dispel the myths being spun around the virus's origins, ' he wrote to Fauci in April 2020.

US intelligence agencies are still investigating reports that researchers at the Chinese Virus Research Institute in Wuhan were seriously ill in 2019, a month before the first COVID-19 case was reported. But this Peter Daszak, who is buddies with Fauci, who is thanking him privately in emails for covering up the Wuhan leak, ' Paul charged.

Trump also hinted at allegations that the coronavirus may have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and was potentially created as a result of "gain-of-function" research, a process by which researchers make a virus more deadly or infectious.

"Many thanks for your kind note", Dr Fauci replied.

'Where someone can snip out a sentene in an email without showing the other emails and say, "based on an email from Dr. Fauci, he said such-and-such", where you don't really have the full context, ' the doctor said.

"I don't think we know what happened in Wuhan".

How has the lab leak theory gathered pace?

The Financial Times reported Thursday that it had asked China to publish it.

They were told not to explore claims about gain-of-function experiments at the Wuhan lab to avoid attracting unwelcome attention to USA government funding of such research, reports Vanity Fair.

The Wall Street Journal reported last month that three employees at the Wuhan Institute of Virology fell ill and were admitted to hospital in November 2019, just before the first reported Covid-19 cases.

And he added: "I think Mike Flynn has a mental health problem, to be blunt". 'Michael Flynn is clearly an enemy of the USA. Flynn's conviction that he lied to the FBI during a Russian investigation was dispelled after the president's pardon.

His administration had previously deferred to the World Health Organization for answers on how the pandemic began.

Fauci has been accused, especially by conservatives, of playing down the lab leak theory, in part to protect the reputation of NIAID, which helped to fund controversial bat research at Wuhan.

Financial Times reported that Fauci continues to believe the virus was first transmitted to humans through animals, pointing out that even if the lab researchers did have COVID-19, they could have contracted the disease from the wider population.

Wang reiterated China's position that the lab's report of leaks was a "conspiracy theory".

Paul also claimed that some of Fauci's emails showed that he was "very troubled" about some gain-of-function research being done - though it was not immediately obvious which emails the Kentucky Republican was speaking of.

He added: "China should pay Ten Trillion Dollars to America, and the World, for the death and destruction they have caused!"

Meanwhile, House of Representatives deputy Republican leader Steve Scalise demanded in a letter that Dr Fauci testify before Congress on the "US government's role in funding research that may have contributed to the development of the novel coronavirus".

COVID-19's origins have become one of the most contentious questions of the pandemic.
