(RightWing.org) – An investigative journalism group says it’s obtained US military documents showing researchers asked the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for funding in 2018 – and wanted to use the money for controversial gain-of-function research on bat-borne coronaviruses. If true, this would be in direct conflict with the Senate testimony of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Since May 2021, there have been persistent allegations that White House medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, cooperated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology to carry out gain-of-function (GoF) research on bat coronaviruses. Gain-of-function research involves modifying a virus to give it new abilities – such as, for example, making a bat virus capable of infecting humans. The goal of these experiments is to predict and guard against future pandemics, but it’s potentially so dangerous the US seriously restricts it.
Now, conservative investigative group Project Veritas says it’s obtained military documents proving that, in March 2018, EcoHealth Alliance asked DARPA to fund GoF research on bat coronaviruses. According to the documents, DARPA refused the request, believing it was dangerous – and complained that the research proposal “does not mention or assess potential risks.”
EcoHealth Alliance is funded by various US government agencies, and Fauci has repeatedly insisted that the US government had nothing to do with GoF research on coronaviruses. The thing is, if these documents are real, Fauci is lying.
According to the documents, after DARPA turned down the application, EcoHealth Alliance turned to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and got them to carry out the research. Months later, a coronavirus pandemic started in the same district of Wuhan that the Institute is based in. Somebody needs to urgently find out if these papers are real.
