ICYMI: Comer Joins Fox News, Highlights Emails Showing Dr. Fauci Concealed Lab Leak Theory

WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) joined “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News yesterday to discuss new information revealing Dr. Fauci may have concealed information from government officials about COVID-19 originating from the Wuhan lab and the virus possibly being genetically manipulated. In addition, emails released by Committee Republicans indicate Dr. Fauci and former Director of the National Institutes of Health Dr. Francis Collins may have colluded with other scientists to downplay the lab leak theory. 

Key excerpts from the interview:

“What did Dr. Fauci do with the information … from his advisors, scientists and virologists, that sent emails in early February 2020 that said it appears this virus was man-made and leaked from the Wuhan lab? … Why wasn’t Dr. Fauci transparent with the Trump Administration and the public about the fact this could have been man-made in that lab in Wuhan?”

“Anyone that suggested that this was man-made or that this could have been leaked from the Wuhan lab was shot down by Dr. Fauci and the liberal news media. Dr. Collins was clearly trying to spin this with the public … they were concerned that Americans and Republicans would start digging into this and find out that the probability this was man-made and leaked from that lab is very high.”

“The more we dig up the more it looks like Dr. Fauci was trying to conceal important information.”
