(JustPatriots.com)- Yesterday, it was reported that Dr. Anthony Fauci would be releasing a new book about his experience with the COVID Pandemic titled “Expect the Unexpected.”
Ironically, just hours after the news of this book came out, emails to and from Fauci obtained through the Freedom of Information Act were published at both Buzzfeed and the Washington Post.
Unexpected to be sure.
The emails published in the Washington Post reveal, among other things, that the media’s favorite doctor enjoyed a close relationship with China’s top infectious disease expert early on in the pandemic.
Several email exchanges in March and April of 2020 between Fauci and Dr. George Gao, while cordial and friendly, did not include any questions regarding the origin of the COVID virus.
In March 2020, after Fauci said in an interview that Americans shouldn’t be walking around in masks, Dr. Gao told Science magazine that Fauci made a “big mistake” saying that. Then after the interview was released, Gao emailed Fauci downplaying the remark, claiming it was the “journalist’s wording.”
In early April 2020 Fauci flip-flopped on mask-wearing, telling Americans to mask up to stop the spread. Shortly afterward, as Fauci faced criticism for his flip-flop, Dr. Gao sent an email offering his support, saying “Hope you are well under such [an] irrational situation.”
In return, Fauci replied with his thanks adding, “All is well despite some crazy people in this world.”
The 866 pages of emails obtained by the Washington Post also include other eye-opening revelations about Dr. Fauci – including his surprise at becoming a media superstar.
Apparently Fauci didn’t expect that unexpected turn.
When a colleague sent him a link to an article about Fauci-themed merchandise, Fauci demurred – acting as if he eschewed this new-found fame. Calling it “truly surrealistic,” Fauci said he hoped it all stopped soon – adding, “It is not at all pleasant, that is for sure.”
The emails obtained by Buzzfeed include communications between Fauci and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg with the goal of coordinating COVID messaging between the government and Facebook.
The emails also reveal that Fauci and his team were already well aware early on in the pandemic that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the likely source of the COVID-19 virus.
In response to the eye-opening revelations in these documents, this morning Senator Rand Paul – a consistent critic of Fauci’s – tweeted “Told you” and the hashtag #firefauci. In a second tweet, Senator Paul added “Can’t wait to see the media try to spin the Fauci FOIA emails.”
