FBI Investigated Fauci’s Research in Early 2020, New Emails Reveal

Written by Lucas Taylor.

Last Friday, Judicial Watch dropped quite the bombshell—releasing internal FBI emails that open up a whole can of worms about the kind of research Dr. Anthony Fauci’s team funded. These emails from April 2020 give us a peek into what the FBI knew about the gain-of-function research that was happening under the aegis of Fauci’s National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, all the way over at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. It’s a bit of a sticky situation since this research has been under the microscope, criticized by many for its safety and ethics.

Here’s what happened: the FBI agents got the lowdown from someone pretty clued-in about the experiments at Wuhan. This insider, who remains anonymous for privacy reasons, claimed that the research was designed in a way that any engineered virus could look completely natural—no foul play apparent. This source was adamant that the procedures at Wuhan were so slick they “would leave no signatures of purposeful human manipulation,” making it a ghost in the system.

Alarming Insights and Follow-Ups

An FBI agent’s email dated April 23, 2020, really turned up the heat by mentioning some “alarming new info” about the funded research. This sparked a flurry of emails that even got the higher-ups involved. The assistant special agent in charge at the Newark Office kicked this up the chain with a promise to dive deeper with his team the next day, showing just how serious they were taking this.

Judicial Watch isn’t just sitting on these emails; they’re calling for a full-blown criminal investigation to get to the bottom of Fauci’s involvement in this gain-of-function research. Tom Fitton, the head honcho over at Judicial Watch, didn’t mince words. He said these documents “showed the FBI quickly understood that Fauci’s agency funded the gain-of-function research that could disguise the resulting coronavirus as ‘natural.’”

And there’s more—turns out the FBI was pretty quick on the draw, figuring out by March 2020 that COVID-19 might have leaked from that very lab in Wuhan. But here’s the kicker: they didn’t make this public until October 2021. This delay kept everyone from Donald Trump to Joe Public in the dark about what might really have happened.

Our Take

These revelations throw a harsh spotlight on the goings-on behind closed doors in our public health agencies. I see a glaring need for accountability here. Where are our taxpayer dollars going? And to what end? The idea that a lab-crafted virus could be passed off as a natural occurrence is not just alarming—it’s a wakeup call for oversight and ethical responsibility in science.

The ongoing investigation needs to be thorough and impartial. The American people deserve transparency about these significant events that have changed our lives and our world. Looking ahead, we must tighten the reins on this kind of research, ensuring it’s done safely and openly, without any room for misuse or deception. It’s about protecting our health, our security, and our future.
