It seems that Donald Trump wasn’t crazy after all.
In a trove of leaked emails, it’s been exposed that Dr. Anthony Fauci was well-aware early in the pandemic that some features of the COVID-19 virus “looked engineered” by Wuhan scientists. The emails suggests Trump’s lab leak theory, a move that was considered “crazy” and “anti-science” by Fauci and the mainstream media at the time, actually had some legitimacy.
Kristian G. Andersen, a professor of of Immunology and Microbiology, sent an email an email to Dr. Fauci containing academic studies that clearly show at least some aspects of the coronavirus structure was originated in a laboratory – likely the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The email was sent in January 2020, right as the global pandemic was underway.
On March 17, 2020, the writer of the Email, Kristian G. Anderson published a study in which he clearly states it’s improbable that SARS-CoV-2 “emerged through laboratory manipulation”. Again the Email is not a smoking gun. https://t.co/95R2wxDxL3

Fauci replied the following day: “Thanks, Kristian. Talk soon on the call.”
Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, journalist were able to retrieve 866 pages of Dr. Fauci’s correspondence with NIH colleagues, Chinese researches, and other members of the virology and immunology community.
Fauci began a press tour categorically denying that the COVID-19 virus was in any way manufactured in a lab, saying data proved it likely “jumped” from an animal species to humans. He routinely laughed-off the leak theory proposed by Trump and other Republican lawmakers.
Not until late may 2021 did Fauci finally admit he was “not convinced” the virus developed naturally soon after he realized the trove of his emails were set to be released.

Currently Fauci serves as the Biden Administrations’s top medical adviser — and before that led Former President Trump Coronavirus Task Force. Trump has since lost favor with Fauci as the pair battle inthe press over the potential origins of the virus.
According to reports, Fauci received nearly 1,000 messages daily in March and April of last year from colleagues, hospital executives, foreign governments, and even strangers.
Organizations, businesses, and politicians reached out to Fauci during the initial months of the pandemic. The doctor sometimes responded long after midnight.
