New emails released show that when an expert tried to warn Anthony Fauci about Chinese disinformation Fauci was disinterested.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the federal bureaucrat who helped bungle the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response, appeared to dismiss an expert’s detailed warning about Chinese disinformation in the early days of the pandemic, according to emails obtained by the Washington Post.
“Too long for me to read,” Fauci wrote in response to a March 2020 email from a physicist with extensive experience in China, or “tl;dr,” as the kids say. The expert had reached out to express concern about “fabricated data” coming out of China and the communist country’s other efforts to conceal the true extent of the virus.
Other emails show that in February 2020, Fauci was advising a colleague not to wear face masks, which he said were “not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material.”
This month, Fauci suggested that continuing to wear a face mask, even after most restrictions have been lifted, could “diminish the likelihood that you’ll spread these respiratory borne diseases.” Fauci’s credibility has been plagued by similar inconsistencies throughout the pandemic.
Fauci’s newly released emails have caused his new book to be pulled by major retailers.
